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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My wife and i have just spent our honeymoon at the Tropico de Capricormio, in Buzios Brazil. We stayed in the Amores suite, which i must say was delightful with an amazing view from the balcony over Buzios and the Ferradura beach. The Tropico de Capricornio is owned by Helio and Christine, who are the loveliest couple you could wish... More

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. They were clean and very large but too dark for our liking. There were other rooms in their home with great views but none were available. The breakfast in the mornings were... More

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... More

I stayed here for 3 nights after a week of work in Brazil and it is a beautiful pousada. I had the bridal suite which is just lovely. All i wanted was peace, relaxation and tranquility and that is exactly what i got. Its nice to be up on the hill away from the noise and chaos of Buzios town... More

Buzios is a lovely upmarket/fishing town 180km east of Rio. Away from the town and looking down from Alto Buzios to the beaches surrounding the pensinsula is a row of massive houses tucked away in the hills. There you'll find the wonderful Tropico de Capricornio. As we were on our honeymoon and it was the low season, we were upgraded... More

I come to Buzios since the 80s’ and have stayed in many “pousadas” and private homes but nothing compares to Tropico de Capricornio for its location, charming hosts and impeccable service. Highlights: Welcoming and friendly hosts; Privacy and relaxing atmosphere; Beautiful property with landscaped garden and pool; Very spacious and confortable suites with private terraces and large bathroom.
