We spent 4 night and it was most enjoyable. The pousada is located in a quiet area on a hill with a beautiful view overlooking the bay and every room has a balcony and view of the sea. It takes about 10-15 min. to walk to town and you get strong legs from walking up the hill back :-). As... More

This is by far the best place I've ever stayed. Everyone was so welcoming when we arrived that I never wanted to leave! We drove a car to Buzios and there was a parking spot right out front for us. The views from our room were amazing. We arrived just in time for the afternoon coffee, tea, and cake break!... More

Although it has been weeks since we spent our vacation in Buzios (end of August), our memories are still strong. My wife and I decided to take advantage of our trip to Rio to discover Buzios. Through our search for a hotel, we found the Pousada Santorini which was selected by TripAdvisor for its Travelers Choice Award (no. 1 of... More

Our stay at the Pousada Santorini was absolutely amazing! Raquel and her nephew Thiago made us feel like family members from the beginning on. They took us to aqua gym lessons down to the beach, and as if that wasn't enough, they were so, so lovely to take us on a tour over the whole peninsula for a whole day!... More

Our group of 5 spent 2 nights at Santorini in Buzios during a break from World Cup watching in Rio. The pousada is just outside of town up an incline but, once inside the room, it becomes clear that this elevation provides fantastic views of the verdant slopes and valleys leading down to the coast. The property is in tip-top... More

Want to be treated like a queen? Then go to Pousada Santorini! It's 'my house' in Buzios. Perfect attendance, all very organized, all pretty clean, helpful staff, amazing breakfast, pool, sauna .... well, nothing to complain about and everything to praise. I also want to leave a big hug Rachel and Francesco (owners), Verlana and Sabrina .... and already I... More

Fab views from the rooms, decent breakfast and probably the best of all is the service. The hosts were so warm and went out of their way to help us. It's a nice calm place to get away and relax for a few days.

Small, nice and very hospitality. Only nine rooms in the hotel and you are treated almost like a family. Locations is amazing with the view and close to the beaches and center with lots of restaurants.

Without any doubt this pousada is one of the best in Buzios. Strategically located with a wonderful view, nice rooms, very clean and wonderful and very tasty breakfast. Being punctilious, the swimming pool was rather small for my taste.However, it's one of the few pousadas close to the beach, 10 minutes as maximum on foot. Excellent ratio price/quality, specially bearing... More
