“Wonderful - it's our go to when in Buzios”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Beautiful, rustic-chic hotel with a claming palette of colors and decor. Worth the price. Close to the shopping area and restaurants (which is a big bonus because cabs are extremely expensive in Buzios). There's a walkway down to the lower road that takes you to the shops, most other hotels don't have this and you have to walk a long way around. Great breakfast, great staff. We were upgraded when we arrived.

The only downfall is that kids aren't allowed - at the time we didn't have any so we didn't think twice about this, but the last time we had our little one with us and so we stayed at their sister hotel "Abracadabra". Don't be fooled by the name, Abracadabra was wonderful, same helpful staff and quality, plus you can eat, use the spa and the access to the lower walk way at Casas Brancas because they are sister hotels.

we have have the room with the jacuzzi, the service is outstanding, the staff is very helpful..

The restaurant downstairs, outside the hotel, is couzy, with an excellent view, great snacks food, with a wine...


Just a 5 minutes (or less) from buzios, from all the action is... at the same time a quite place... with no noise

It is not necessary to say, but Buzios, it is a charming beach town... one of the best in Brazil... we will be back...

Room Tip: you are in a beach town, you have to request a room with a full sea view...

We had a deluxe room with an ocean view and it was perfect. The room was a large and airy with a sitting area and a capsule coffee maker, the wash and shower area was quirky but quite functional.
The hotel staff were very attentive and the breakfast was was very adequate. Overall a throughly enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and an ocean view

We spent 6 blissful nights at Casas Brancas - we had a large balcony with the most amazing view & a day bed that was just heavenly.

All the hotel restaurants were nice although the hotel needs to do something about the flies hovering on the breakfast buffet...

The view from the deck area is just amazing and this hotel is all about getting pampered & relaxing whilst taking in the views.

The location is fantastic near the shops & restaurants. Rocka was beautiful but perhaps a little over rated we felt.

However, there were a couple of important issues that I think need to be addressed. I had a massage & the massage therapist was so rough with my neck, bending & contorting it... I actually was wondering whether she was attempting to crack it. My neck was sore for days & I was so disappointed. Not to mention the danger of contorting necks like that!
The other serious issue was out transfer from the hotel to Rio Airport. I do realise that this isn't actually hotel staff but the hotel does endorse this transfer company. Our driver, Ricardo, was such a maniac on the roads I spent the 3 hour journey genuinely fearing for my life & thinking we would surely crash. Not a nice ending to our stay!

Checked out this morning and wished we had been checking in. Perched on top of a hill overlooking the sea and a short walk to the main shoping centre of Buzios, and a multitude of restaurants to cater for all tastes, Casas Brancas ticked all our boxes. The accommodation was of a high quality and the service and attention of all the staff was excellent. A great breakfast gets the day going, but at a pace that reinforces the laid back, chilled-out atmosphere of the place. A day trip to Brava beach, a short distance away, where the hotel operates the Rocka restaurant and beach facility was definitely worth it. Some other things that really worked well, and make a difference, were the Wifi and the hair dryer! All in all, a great stay at a great place.

Welcoming and helpful staff, in a great position with understated service.
Fantastic elevated location with ocean views, my tastefully decorated room looked directly over the sea - the view was so beautiful and peaceful !
There is a choice of restaurants in the hotel....and the poolside restaurant served amazing breakfast.
There are also excellent waterfront restaurants, with shops and bars on the main street all close by......
Loved everything about my stay, can't wait to return!
Thank you!

We spent part of our honeymoon here and we had an amazing time. It was very close to nearby restaurants and bars.
The breakfast each morning was delightful with an amazing view of the sea.
The pool could have been bigger but the relaxation beds nearby were great.
The rooms were lovely and big with a sea view. The shower was nice and we had a sofa in the room which was good.
