Photographer's Note

Hotels
Buzios have more than 200 hotels spread in the city. However since it is a very famous place the hotels prizes are very expensive and many times the hotel do not correspond to the amount paid. (I went through this problem during the New Year Eve).
Here in the photo we can see Bahiamarela Hotel, The hotel have a pretty facade and colors an is located very close to the João Fernandes beach (50 meters). It costs from 400-500 reais (about 200-250 dollars) per day, however the customer ratings suggest that this hotel is not so good and presents several problems. But it has a pretty architecture to photograph.
