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

We stayed here for two nights and wish we could have extended for longer. The view speaks for itself, absolutely breathtaking and never gets old. But on top of the wow factor of waking up to this incredible place every day, the pousada was perfectly located which made our lives so much easier. It was central to everything, just a... More

I am generally pragmatic when reviewing, however I feel it right to also report to fellow readers when things are terrible. To summarise and be brief: Limited Ocean view should read eye line with sunbathing area-people looking at you? Shared access to your Favela with everyone? Favela situated above Kitchen? No sleep due to shared ventilation system with Kitchen (see... More

Three of my friends and I stayed here after travelling around South America for 2 and a half weeks. What a way to finish off our holiday. We were greeted in reception with a glass of champagne and that was a taste of things to come. The attention to detail at this hotel is second to none. The staff were... More

We stayed at the pousada for five days and we simply loved it. The interior design is perfect, the pool is amazing, housekeeping is very detail oriented and the best thing is the food. I would actually not change a anything in this hotel. Will be back

My husband and I stayed here for the last couple days of our honeymoon trip and loved it so much! What we loved: - the service - we were greeted with champagne cocktails at reception (which had a giant bouquet of fresh Lillie's so it smelt beautiful) - the view - fantastic view of the bay and the town -...

In an otherwise underwhelming visit to Rio, there are not enough great things to say about Abracadabra. First, it is the perfect size for a boutique hotel; enough guests and grounds to feel a buzz, but not that big that you are crowded out. Italo (manning the front desk) was as warm and welcoming as you could hope for. He... More
