Abracadabra Pousada
Ranked #15 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Abracadabra. It was a great small hotel, with only around 18 rooms. This meant that there are only very few people in the hotel, which makes it more comfortable and relaxing. The pool area is great with comfortable sun beds and a amazing view, the hotel restaurant is really good and we recommend to eat lunch or dinner there and the staff at the hotel is great. The only thing we disliked about our stay in Buzios was that we did not enjoy the town that much. It is quite touristy and it turned out to be different than we expected. The town is a stop for many big cruise lines which populate the town very much. The hotel though was a great relaxing stay for a couple of days after an adventurous holiday around elsewhere in Brazil. Also we went to see what the neighboring Casa Brancas hotel, we found Abracadabra to have a better pool and seemed like a more quiet place.

We honeymooned in South America and after a week in rio we went for a week in buzios, we stayed at the abracadabra posada and it was absolutely brilliant. It is very chic and boutique with a lovely little pool and sun terrace it was the perfect way to end our honeymoon and we would love to go back! We stayed in April 2013 weather was lovely.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front more expensive but we had a room at the back for around £80 pound sterling per ni...

We loved our stay on Buzios and would recommend the Abracadabra for the stunning location, beautiful views, private villa atmosphere, infinity pool, friendly staff and excellent restaurant.

We stayed five nights over New Year before heading to Rio and are really pleased we allowed time to recharge our batteries.

The only thing that was disappointing was Room 1. By any standard the room is small (no floor space for a suitcase) and fairly basic. My wife was quite upset as it was described as having a garden view but in truth the view was of a white painted wall with the odd climbing plant. The lesson: make sure you ask for a room with genuine outlook.

Two other gripes - the wifi is the poorest we encountered on our trip and that smoking is allowed at the poolside.

We enjoyed the classy New Years Eve dinner at the sister hotel Casas Brancas though it didn't have quite the all-out party atmosphere that we were expecting.

This is a wonderful place to stay and highly recommended.

We didn't stay here but we went here for dinner on the first night of our honeymoon. It was so amazing! We had a table right by the infinity pool, overlooking the beautiful bay - breathtaking. The meal was the best meal we had throughout our time in Brazil. Really delicious food, and great service. A really special place!

From the moment that we walked into the lobby, we knew that this place was special. Our room overlooked the bay. It was absolutely breathtaking. Felt like we were in Capri or in the French Riviera. Rooms are small but nicely decorated. Breakfast was great. Offer a wide variety of options and even custom make things to your liking. Don't waste the extra money at their sister hotel Casa Brancas. Abracadabra is more intimate and charming. We would walk over to Casa Brancas to access the main strip where all the restaurants were at.

Would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor with ocean view are a must.

The wi-fi they mention is free... It doesn't work. That's why it's free. We came from Europe so we truly need the wi-fi to be in touch with family and our 2years old baby and at night we always went to have dinner out and our criteria was not the quality of food but the free wi-fi each offered us. Shame for the price you pay for this accommodation. If wi-fi is a requirement for you, don't stay here. Be aware.

Abracadabra was a great experience. Our room was clean and modern. The complimentary champagne and sparkling wine in the room upon arrival was a great touch. Our room did not have a view but the overall property view is incredible overlooking the bay. The hotel is perfectly located a few minute walk to the town where all the restaurants and bars are located. It is also far enough and high enough above the action where it is peaceful and secluded. The restaurants on the property and sister property were both great. The pizza spot was a perfect low-key date night while the restaurant on the property served a great modern cuisine with a very nice view of the bay below.

After a day of exploring it was great to come back to the hotel and relax by the pool on the lounge chairs and day beds. It never felt crowded while we were there. Breakfast was very good especially compared to other hotels in Brazil as you were able to order eggs, bacon and omelets to your liking. I would highly recommend this hotel for your trip to Buzios.
