“Amazing views and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

A very nice stay over Christmas in Casas Brancas!

Highlights: gorgeous views, walking distance to town, local beach and restaurants, delicious and good value restaurant, friendly staff and lovely breakfast.

''Lowlights'': while this was really a very nice hotel, I thought that for the price we paid some things could have been better. Little things but for example, the bedroom didnt really match the photos on the website (I guess they showed more luxurious rooms or sea-view rooms), cleaning ladies always forgot to provide us with more shampoo/soap when it ran out, and the pool is really only for dipping in to cool off.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night at the end of five months travelling. I cannot fault this hotel! Staff were friendly and attentive from the start, with the concierge coming to greet us personally and offering us breakfast, even though we hadn't been booked in for that morning. We arrived early to make use of the beautiful facilities and were made to feel very welcome. The sun loungers are very comfortable and all look out over the sea, and there's a small pool to cool off in.

When we were given our room we were delighted. We were led to a beautiful room (number 11 I think) with a huge balcony complete with incredible view over the bay, and were brought complimentary champagne to drink while taking in the views.

The breakfast was brilliant- a great variety of choice and great service once `again.

This is a brilliant hotel in a beautiful setting and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Buzios.

We cannot recommend the Casas Brancas Boutique Hotel & Spa highly enough - we were in Brazil for our Honeymoon and our first stop was the Casas Brancas. From the moment we arrived the staff looked after us so well. We were delighted to receive a room upgrade to a room with an ocean view and loved the complementary glass of champagne on the terrace looking out over fabulous views. The hotel is beautiful and in such a great location, at the heart of beautiful Buzios. The hotel restaurant is a very high standard, the breakfast buffet offers so much choice (the best we had in Brazil), the seafood at the restaurant was also first class. The staff are a credit to this hotel, especially Sebastian the concierge - who offered great assistance planning our few days in Buzios. This hotel is a must - a beautiful start to what was a fantastic trip to Brazil. Thank you so much! Sara & Colm

Room Tip: Request a room with an ocean view - amazing!

We had an outstanding holiday at Casas Brancas with beautiful views and facilities, a great location within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beaches and friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help. Our room was spacious, clean and had a view of the ocean, surrounding islands and the pretty town.

The breakfast included was delicious and we made use of the yoga classes that were available to guests. We loved every minute of our 6 days in Buzios.

An exquisite hotel and a wonderful destination for our honeymoon. Thank you!!

Our final destination in Brazil was just what we needed. As soon as we stepped into Casas Brancas we were upgraded and offered a glass of champagne whilst we relaxed on the terrace waiting for our room to be prepared. This feeling remained throughout our stay in Casas Brancas and thank you to all the staff who were so attentive. We would not hesitate staying here again and it is well worth paying up for if yo go to Buzios. Casas Brancas is in the best location (walk to some lovely beaches and the town centre) and the views are spectacular.

Breakfast was the best! Whoever their chef was, his omelettes are excellent. Also extra special thanks to Sebastien who spent a long time telling us about Buzios' best spots and restaurants. He literally bends over backwards to ensure every guest at Casas Brancas is happy and comfortable, don't know how he does it!!

I use Tripadvisor all the time to plan trips but I usually don't write reviews. I had to right a review of this place because everything was so wonderful. Great staff, perfect room, delicious food and a fabulous view. We had only planned to stay for three nights but extended our stay because it was so amazing. The hotel guest relations person, Sebastian was great and so helpful. He helped us reschedule our flight to Buenos Aires so that we could stay longer. Sebastian also speaks very good English which was really helpful to us in planning day trips to other beaches in the area and arranging our transportation to and from the airport in Rio.

On another note, my husband had not been sleeping well when we arrived and our room was not only large but very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. He was able to catch up on sleep and enjoy the beauty of Buzios. The breakfast was very delicious with lots of fruit, pastries, bread and great coffee. It was my birthday on the day we arrived and they brought us out champagne, dessert and a book about the beaches of Buzios. So sweet.

I would recommend this place if you are planning to visit Buzios. Saying that this place is perfect is an understatement. It was heaven on Earth and we loved every moment!

Cannot recommend Casas Brancas enough!
We stayed here for 6 nights after an extensive tour of South America and thought it couldn't get any better than the Sofitel in Rio - well Casas Brancas lived up to its reviews and expectations! Wonderful!
We had a fantastic room (11) with its own verandah and fabulous views over the bay to Buzios - just perfect!
It was really big with its own seated area overlooking the verandah and the double bed (unusual in South America) was extremely comfortable.
The decor throughout the boutique hotel is shabby chic but it works so well, adding character and atmosphere.
The breakfast choices were the best we'd experienced, with the exception of the Sofitel, and they had a huge variety of breads to choose from.
We dined there every night, bar one, and found something different and excellent to eat every night and they have a great wine list.
From the minute we arrived until we left, the staff couldn't do enough for us, although we were let down on our last night when our dinner reservation overlooking the bay hadn't been booked properly. Disappointing, but didn't spoil our night!
This has to be one of the most idyllic locations for any hotel and the Casa Brancas is exactly that - idyllic!
It would be a wonderful destination for a honeymoon or romantic holiday for anyone, as its just so perfect!
Cannot recommend it, or it's staff, highly enough and would never stay anywhere else in this pretty Brazilian seaside town!!
