Christiane, the owner made me feel very welcome and took great care of me! I was sick, fever and coughing a lot, she gave me medicine and arranged a nice spot at casas brancas to enjoy the view and some relaxation away from the big ! Rocka is excellent for lunch and just ask the great hosts of this charming and spacious poussada where you are up to and they will help you to live up to your wishes!

Great little pousada in Buzios. Elios and Christiane were very gracious and concerned with our satisfaction. Breakfast is quite nice, but does not start until 9am, a little late in my opinion. The furnishings are very exquisite in the main building, lots of art and interesting glassware. Nice china and crystal for breakfast too. Wonderful views from the pool and our room was large. But they do not have a restaurant for lunch or dinner. The pool had not been cleaned very well, all it would have taken was an hour with the net to skim out the bugs and leaves. And the wifi was quite inconsistent. But if you are looking for a calm, relaxed stay, this is a good place.

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 confy beds and large bathrooms. The breakfast is really outstanding and comes with the whole range of tropical fruits, some like the bananas grow in the very own garden. The croissants add a French touch to it, as does the many pieces of art in the main lobby. The Wifi was working to our full satisfaction, even at the pool. Transportation was always arranged by the management and the taxis arrived within minutes after calling. Be aware that during Carnaval time, most of the beaches in Buzios are very crowded with hundreds of umbrellas and beach chairs, so its better to come here during another time of the year.

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 around the pool until we went to the city or the Ferradura beach for a late lunch and dinner in the afternoon. The 10-15 minute walk to and from the city and the Ferradura beach and the 15/20 min walk to/from Geriba proved to be the minimum amount of exercise we needed to not feel guilty over all the excellent food we were served in the main city and on the beaches.
