Great little pousada in Buzios. Elios and Christiane were very gracious and concerned with our satisfaction. Breakfast is quite nice, but does not start until 9am, a little late in my opinion. The furnishings are very exquisite in the main building, lots of art and interesting glassware. Nice china and crystal for breakfast too. Wonderful views from the pool and...

We stayed 3 nights with Elios&Christiane in their charming Pousada. Its an excellent location on the top of Alto de Buzios, not only you can enjoy the great view, but there is always a cool breeze which is especially nice on a hot summer day like when we were there around Carnaval time. The rooms are beautifully furnished, with extra...

The last 6 days of our four week trip in Brazil we spent in Christiane & Elios place centrally located at a hill in Buzios overlooking the main city and the Ferradura beach and with Geriba Beach on the "back side" of the hill. The breakfast and service were excellent and we and our six kids enjoyed a relaxing time...

My wife and I and our two adult boys spent four days at the Tropico over New Year and all of us enjoyed this Pousada enormously. We just wanted to relax, have a quiet break but enjoy the hubbub and noise of Buzios during the holiday season when required. The Tropico allowed us to do all this. The Pousada is...

Just came from a Brazil vacation where we spent two nights at Tropico de Capricornio. Very nice hotel and very interesting architecture and view. The hotel is well located and the owners are very good in taking care of clients. Would have been nice if there was a dinner option as the outside area will be ideal for such a...

We spent 3 days in Buzios and stayed at the Tropico de Capricornio. The owners are very nice and helpful but our rooms looked nothing like we expected.

This property sits above Buzios, giving a panoramic view of the bay. The grounds are quite vast and full of beautiful, flowering tropical shrubs; and the hotel main building and plantation rooms are spacious, high ceilinged and have an airy feel. Breakfast is beautifully presented, delicious and with croissants that France could proudly offer. The owners have a lovely, friendly...
