Francesco, his wife and all the staff, make this beatiful posada (with a great view), a little corner of heaven that you would never leave.
They are always smiling and treat you like a family member.
The brakfast is fantastic and The homemade cakes (specially the banana and cinnamon one) makes it special.
SUGGESTION: enjoy your staying having a caipirinha in the pool and a dinner on the room terrace (the view and the service will make it very romatic).
Do not forget to relax on the amaca on the room balcony

Can't speak highly enough of this place. After spending a few days in the hustle and bustle of Rio, it was such a breath of fresh air to arrive on the top of the hill in Buzios where Santorini Pousada is located. The building is spotless and has lots of charm. The views are breathtaking, and the fresh fruit at breakfast was a welcome reprieve from the typical fried food found throughout much of Brazil. Enjoy your stay!

My friend and I stayed at Pousada Santorini last week, and it was extraordinary. Francesco and the staff were like family - and with a few short days in Buzios, they helped us to see Buzios fully. The pousada itself has the feeling of being at home, and the views are beautiful. The breakfast is lovely, and all stress melts away. With over 20 beaches in Buzios I'd recommend staying for longer than a few days.

I was there two weeks ago and I have to say that the hotel is beyond great! It has a beautiful view, spacious rooms, great breakfast (!!!) and the best part is the staff, including the owners. They were all very nice and helpful and made our stay so pleasurable!

The hotel is 5 minutes from Joao Fernandes beach and from that beach you can take a water taxi and go to other beaches on the coast.

It was not an issue to me, but it might be for someone older or someone without a car for example.. the hotel is on a hill, so if you don't have a car and you don't want to go up the hill all the time, it might be a problem. But being on a hill makes the view breathtaking!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view!

One of the highlightsof our holidays in Brazil is to visit Buzios staying at the Santorini Pousada where the accomodation is first class, bed linen, towels etc are likewise. The pool and surrounding area are very clean and the views are tremendous.
The staff are very attentive and the owners are so friendly that nothing is a problem.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Pousada to all age groups.

We stayed at Pousada Santorini in December and it was our favourite place in Brazil! The staff were so friendly and really made our stay special. It's a bit of a walk up from the beach but well worth it for the views! I'd definately choose to stay here again if in Buzios in the future.

Me and my wife stayed for a week, and had a lovely time. In general we agree with the previous reviewer, but since we are not Portuguese/Brazilians we might add that there wasn't one day without an English spoken person attending the reception at least for some hours.
We stayed in the Master Suite, which was well worth that extra money. Plenty of space and even a walk-in closet. However, the balcony would have been even nicer with a couple of chairs and a table. Nevertheless, we had a very comfortable swing-hammock to compensate for the lack of balcony furniture.
The view was fantastic, see attached photo. The price for this view is that there are quite steep roads to climb in order to get to and from the Pousada. You need to stand on two fresh legs for the walk to and from Pousada Santorini. On the other hand, taxi is cheap with a fixed price of 15 BRL to and from the center of the village, if Raquel is not available for a lift in her car.
We would be happy to return!
