Well, I do not even know what to start with - so great it was to stay at "Abracadabra". Not a spirit of a big hotel with formal attitude towards customers, but a cozy "pousada".. So different from what we experiencd in Rio!! ... Great personnel from receptionists to room-maids.. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was looked after...

Abracadabra was our choice from a ‘superior’ package with Travelbag. We loved it. Yes, as in other reviews Casas Brancas is more luxurious and obviously more upmarket (the sister hotel next door one has to walk through to get to the promenade) but we were more than happy with our stay at Abracadbra. Its just smaller, more rustic and more...

This is Casas Brancas' sister hotel and it shows, though it is considerably cheaper. It has the same sort of feel - like that of a modern boutique beach hotel, with plenty of space and a hotel costas style soundtrack at the poolside. At Abracadabra however, rather than the space and style being contained within spacious rooms, the space that...

Abracadabra has the greatest barman: Felipe! He is in charge of the pool bar and he made every afternoon and evening a blast serving the best Caipirinhas in the world. The hotel is nice, but Felipe is fabulous - a great personality who really knows how to make his guests feel at home and enjoy themselves. We stayed at Abracadabra...

The view and the staff make this pousada truly memorable, and the price can't be beat. I recommend it HIGHLY if you're traveling with friends--it was a fabulous place to be. Delicious breakfasts!

I have to say I'm suprised by some of the negative reviews on here, our experience was quite different. We had a lovely stay at Abracadabra, the staff were relaxed and friendly, the room small but nice with a very comfy bed, and the views from the pool fabulous. The walk into town is less than 5 minutes so hardly...

Sorry to report but we have to semi agree with the report before this one.. I think we had the same room which is small, cramped room with a most uncomfortable bed. Hardly any room to store clothes or even put your bag away. We eventually moved room to a room on the ground level which was a marked improvement...

the view attracts custormers ready to pay..you find yourself with a dirty smelly bathroom, dishwash dispenser in the shower (was there when they filled it up), old lady owner fairly friendly but not professional...I cancelled the last night after filling a questionnaire with our dissatisfaction, nobody cared to comment or offer a discount....speechless

2 of us stayed here for a week in Feb 2010 and we utterly enjoyed it. First the bad bits: the hotel is situated a little way from Buzios town centre so it's a five minute walk through the partner hotel next door, down the steps and along the seafront. More importantly, immediately below the hotel are a number of...

We stayed here as the relaxation part of our holiday and we were in room 4. The hotel is layed out on the hill overlooking Buzios and from our room it felt more like we'd hired a villa. Through the week it was very quiet, peaceful and serene. On the weekend the town picked up substantially to become a party...
