“Beautiful location and environment”
Reviewed 16 January 2010

Stayed here for two nights while travelling in Brazil in Jan 2010. It's a private home run by a very welcoming couple, with amazing views over the bays of Buzios. All of the rooms have private terraces and are large and very comfortable. Great breakfasts. It's secluded with a lovely pool area - a great experience.

We arrived at Tropico de Capricornio after travelling around Brazil for 2 weeks. We were met by Elios and Christiane, the owners who arranged to have our luggage sent to our room and gave us a cocktail, which we thought was a very nice touch. We were shown to our room which was very comfortable with a balcony, an exquisite bathroom and all very clean. The breakfast was always served on an immaculately laid table and included a range of cereals, breads, cold meats and cheese and a very nice passionfruit mousse. The views over Buzios Bay is lovely. There were a couple of downsides I'm afraid - We had a jacuzzi in our bathroom which we really looked forward to using, however the water which came out of it was brown, this was reported but continued to be brown for the duration of our stay. Whilst we were there only one other couple were staying at the pousada, so we had the place all to ourselves most of the time which was relaxing. The owners family and friends were at the pousada quite a lot, as there were quite a lot of them and just the two guests (us) most of the time, we sometimes felt as if we were intruding when we had to interrupt, but I'm sure this wasn't really a problem. There was only one thing that really irritated us - being from a cold climate we found our room to be very hot most of the time, and could only sleep with the air conditioning on. We thought it would be perfectly acceptable to use it but were asked at least 5 times to turn it off and just open the door! I'm sorry but as a full paying guest surely I have the right to operate the air conditioning! Apart from that they are a very nice family, made us feel welcome in a very homely atmosphere.

Tropico di Capricornio can be highly recommended to people who appreciate a very caring, attentive personal service (they actually try to read your wish before you mention it) in an artistic, high standard surrounding.
There, you are really efficiently attended from A to Z and the breakfast table is set - besides marvellous food - with finest French porcelaine and napkins.
It is a real PLEASURE to let yourself spoil there!

There are no words to describe how beautiful this pousada is. I think the owner told us it was ranked one of the 20 most beautiful villas in Brazil. That does not surprise me. A truly hidden gem!

We really enjoyed the staff which had the European know how. They were well mannered, professional, helpful to select some great day trips and also punctual which is very rare in Brazil.

Very relaxing place overall. We will come back for sure!!!

PS: The game room and night club were also a lot of fun for everyone!

My girlfriend and I have spend one of our the best weekends in Brazil at the Tropico De Capricornio Hotel, for our behalf it was true that the hotel and the very lovely hostess there is owning the hotel is saying that it is something different.

The hotel is very nice with some very nice rooms and the location is perfect with a view over the bay.

We have only good things to say about the hotel and are thanks full to the hostess for the great experience they gave us when staying with them. It is defiantly a place we will remember and will love to come back to in the future.

Best regards,
Carolyn and Lars
