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

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

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

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
