Tropico de Capricornio is a wonderful pousada in Alto Buzios. The owner Ellios and his wife (which were in Europe at the time) are great host. You really feel welcome there.

We stayed at the St Tropez suite which had a beautiful view from the terrace and a great bathroom with a jacuzzi.

A really wonderful little pearl in Buzios

Room Tip: St Tropez

I can recommend the pousada, particularly the Saint Tropez room with fantastic views over the Ferrudura Bay. With a lovely refreshing breeze from the heat the position is ideal with just a short walk downhillto at least 6 beaches ( a cheap taxi back is recommended!). The pool must be one of the largest on offer and Elios and Christiane make you feel like a member of the family. They even arranged for us to leave our bags back at the Porto Bay hotel in Copacabana beach where we had stayed previously so we could spend an extra day in Rio before flying home. They also arranged our transfers from Rio. The only downside, and it is only small as there are many restaurants in nearby Cantho, is that we would have liked the option to have a meal at the pousada in the evening so we could relax there and not have to leave the beautiful view and room. Our alternatives were the Villa D'Este and the Insolito Hotel and we certainly made the right choice.

Room Tip: St Tropez. lovely balcony, bathroom, great view

Lovely pousada, on a hill overlooking the Buzios peninsula. Comfortable room with terrace, large bathroom with jacuzzi and sunny pool area. 15 minute stroll into town; easy to get taxis back after dark. Very friendly owners, breakfast on the terrace a particular treat!

Me and my wife spent the Easter Holiday at this lovely Hotel/Pousada. This was the perfect escape from the big city - Sao Paulo, where we live for the time being. Fresh air, beautiful view over Buzios, charming rooms, good service and it all comes together in a very relaxing environment. We are already planning of going back.

Wonderful breakfast. The Swiss-French couple that runs the place gives you a wonderfull time. Do not forget asking Mr. Elios to turn on the downstairs dry sauna!!! Really good place with spectacular swimming pool with nice view to Buzios city and its bays.
