We stayed here in August, the off season. Accommodations are luxurious, people are so helpful, food was delicious at breakfast. The pool is perfect, overlooking the bay. It is a small boutique hotel, very quiet and easy going. We upgraded to a room overlooking the water, #15. Definitely a special stay here at Abracadabra! Would definitely come again.

Small hotel, a what it is called a "pousada". The swimming pool though not large, it is lovely, the view is spectacular, I still miss it. Fernanda, at the reception was stellar and patient with all our request and questions. The food was great, and everyone gracious and helpful. I was there with my twin boys, and my aunt and... More

Abracadabra definitely met our expectations in every way. Our room was pretty small but had the most beautiful view. It was on the 2nd level with a very nice little balcony with a spectacular view, we couldn't have been more happy with it! It's in a perfect location in Buzios, very close to the center of the city. We felt... More

This is a really elegant, modern and simple boutique hotel with a nice pool area. I stayed in one of the sea view rooms and was completely blown away by the view from my balcony area - especially during sunset, which was just stunning and best enjoyed with a glass of fizz from the bar! I ate and had drinks... More

Such an amazing little boutique hotel with awesome views. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel has the best restaurant in Buzios (one of the best meals of my life!). The rooms were fabulous and clean. We stayed in room #15 and the views are breath taking! We couldn't believe the class of this hotel. If come back,... More

I can not fault the hotel in any way, although I do guess it depends on your room as ours was the only one with a private terrace overlooking the sea where we could sit and watch the sunset. The service was amazing, the breakfast was great (which includes several glasses of bubbly), the room was tidied more than twice... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights whilst visiting Buzios. First impressions were good however the room was only average considering the price. We were offered a welcome drink upon arrival which never materialised until we asked and then we sat down by the pool for food and had to go into the bar 10 minutes later to order when... More

Abracadabra is located centrally so that you can walk (down a lot of stairs!) to the 'centro' area with all the shops and restaurants, but also to a few 'beaches'. Not typical beaches like in RIO or elsewhere in world but still nice places to spend the day. The hotel itself is charming like a cottage almost. Mosquitoes at night... More

Great option in Buzios. The pool area and the restaurant are great. But don't stay at room number 6. The machines from the restaurant are in the roof of the room number 6. Too noisy... It's unbelieveble that a hotel like these let it happen...

Definitely one of the best hotels in Buzios! I was at the comfort garden category for 2 nights and was pleased! The room is not huge but super comfortable with a nice decoration! I loved specially the glassed bathroom with a small internal garden! The staff is very friendly and correct! We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco and... More
