“Best hotel in brazil”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Cachoeira Inn is the most beautiful hotel we have ever stayed in. The views, the rooms, the pools, the terraces, living space - everything is so well thought out and totally unique. The icing on the cake was Susan and Matt, who could not have been more welcoming and generous as hosts. Their knowledge of the area was fascinating, their readiness to do anything to make our stay more enjoyable was genuine and their Caipirinhas superb! We got engaged at Cachoeira and I could not have thought of a more beautiful place to have done so, and more lovely people to have shared in our special moment. Thank you both - we will be back! Anna and Dave xx

The Cachoeira Inn is beautiful. The owner's Matt and Susan are very sweet and accommodating. The grounds are amazing, very well kept and clean with a great view. However, the views are of a small cove and you can not see into the open ocean. There is no sandy beachfront on the property it is all rocky. There are a variety of activities provided for guests and service was great. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute drive to the downtown area which is a $15R taxi ride. The only thing in walking distance from the hotel is a few lunch cafes located on Ferradura Beach. My only complaint about the Cachoeira Inn is the price. It is way over priced. In addition to the overpriced nightly rate the price of drinks ordered from the bar is ridiculous ($40R for one drink)! The restaurants and bars in the area don't even charge that much. For the price you pay it would be nice to at least have a few bottles of water included. Don't book a massage through the hotel. The same lady who comes to the resort to do massages does them right on Ferradura Beach for less then half the price the Cachoeria Inn charges. The rooms are on the smaller side and there are no bath tubs. The jacuzzi is not heated. Overall the hotel is very nice and relaxing I just do not feel it worth the money.

Susan and Matt are the sweetest hosts! We read such wonderful things about this B&B and truly every word was true. The view was fantastic, the room was clean, the service was great, and it was a very exclusive area. I highly recommend staying at Cachoeira Inn if you are going to Buzios! Susan and Matt's suggestions were great as well.

One word - breathtaking! My husband and I spent 5 days in Buzios on our honeymoon in late March. We read all the reviews, and thought, could this be more perfect?? When we got there, we realized that it WAS perfect. We got there late, and Susan and Matt were there waiting for us, with hors d'ouvres and smiles. From then on, it was perfection.
A gorgeous breakfast with amazing food- fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt, to eggs made to order. They have a special bread daily, as well as a different local juice every day. They catered to our every need, showing us the way to Buzios. With only 4 suites, it was very private. We had the choice of any pool we wanted at all times, and Matt and Susan would come by and deliver drinks or food - whatever we desired. We felt like we were home, but way more beautiful and impeccably clean. They rooms were always perfectly made up, and were cleaned several times a day.
Matt and Susan helped us out with food recommendations, and they made perfect choices every night. They called cabs for us, gave us directions, and always asked us about it the next day. It is important to note that while they were around to guide us when needed, when we wanted privacy, they made themselves scarce. By the end of the 5 days, we felt like family.
The entire trip was breathtaking, and we owe it all to Matt and Susan (and Barone). We can't wait to go back, and we miss them already!

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are gorgeous! Each one is better than the next!!

We stayed at Cachoeria Inn for 3 nights in March. The B&B has lovely views, creative energetic furnishings and quiet poolside hideaways. Matt and Susan were great hosts with lots of energy and helped with restaurant recommendations and transport details etc. The B&B is about a 20-25 mins walk from the main town and you need to get a taxi in the evenings for BR15, which Susan happily booked. We did feel that it was a little pricey compared to other B&B's at a similar level that we stayed in across Brazil. We were the only guests at the time so were fortunate to have a room upgrade. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed at the Cachoeira inn for the first part of our honeymoon in South America and have to say it was the highlight of it. It really was the perfect place to unwind and relax after the stress and excitement of the wedding. As soon as we arrived (which was quite late at night) Matt and Susan were the perfect hosts, they are so warm and friendly and made us feel so welcome right from the start and throughout our entire stay they couldn't do enough for us and helped make our trip so special. Plus they make a damn good caipirinha!!!

As far as the accommodation, the Cachoeira Inn is just amazing, the rooms are great, all the different waterfalls and secluded areas to relax in, its heaven on Earth. Whatever you want to do - relaxing by one of the many pools sipping a caipirinha or taking the kayaks across the lagoon or taking a trip to some of the amazing beaches Buzious has to offer.

Although Buzious is on the other side of the world from us we will definitely find an excuse to come back to this paradise!

Thanks so much Matt and Susan you helped to make our honeymoon perfect!

I was looking for a spot to get away and enjoy a really relaxing weekend with girlfriend. Upon finding Cacheira Inn, with perfect reviews and rooms going for less than other places were charging, I didn't hesitate and booked right then.

I read many of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and they really got me excited about the trip. Upon arriving at the Inn and spending our first afternoon/evening, I understood why everyone seemed to have enjoyed their stays so much, and so many good things to say about the little paradise that Matt and Susan have set up in Búzios.

The entire Inn and it's views are just gorgeous. There was obviously a lot of thought put into the construction and decoration, and it really pays off. There are numerous places to just hang around and just soak in the lovely sights.

Then there's the pools, and I can't conjure up the words to describe them. They each offer a different view and ambiance, and are all very private and relaxing. I don't think there's single spot I can recall as having enjoyed so much as the Grotto Lagoon. Just the perfect place to alternate between cooling in the pool, and laying on the deck next to it.

Matt and Susan are lovely hosts, who will do their absolute best to make you feel comfortable. You might not have all the service options you'll find at a larger hotel or resort, but on there are no rules. If you mention it, and they think they can somehow arrange the service/food you'd like, you got it.

Overall, I managed to enjoy one of the most relaxing weekends in my life at this lovely retreat.
