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... More

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... 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
