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

Me and my friend stayed at this hotel in September 2012, so my review is a little overdue, but I couldn't resist letting you guys know how charming this place is. The hotel has amazing views. Its clean and cosy. It was wonderful to have breakfast outside and enjoy the view. Great variety of fruits. Dining experience was nice and... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there for a weekend in October and overall we had a very nice time. The service was very good and the pousada was very well located - close to the main street with restaurants, bars etc. Breakfast was excellent and although we didn't use the restaurant, it's meant to be one of the best in...

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We arrived very late at night and were welcomed warmly. The room was a little on the small side, but the bed was comfortable, the air-conditioning very effective, and it was quiet. The breakfast was excellent, the pool area outstanding. The hotel staff could not have been more friendly. Dinner at the Mistico restaurant... More

Buzios is a lovely place and this is the perfect place to stay if you are in town, the pool area in my opinion is nicer than the more expensive Casas Brancas hotel up the road and you can use all of CB's facilities if you stay at Abracadabra so you may as well stay here and save some cash....
