The El Cazar hotel is managed by an extremely caring owner & staff. The breakfast is very nice & you'll get your own choosing onlet if you just specify what you want. As said in the title - the location is wonderful - on the beach - between downtown & swimming area... The best hotel in Buzios by far!!! The...

El Cazar is a fair place to stay in Buzios, with a super view, big rooms and nice staff. Beds are super comfortable and room is clean. Staff is super friendly and kind. It is an old fashion place, which in my opinion could have some refurbishment, but this my personal opinion. It did not jeopardize our stay there. Breakfast...

This is a beautiful location where we went for a junior suite with a perfect view. And the location is lovely, with some of the staff keen to be helpful. However, the owner is an old fashioned Brazilian who prefers not to be polite to his guests, and where the hotel bar closes at 10 pm on a Saturday night...

Dear Guest Our hotel takes our guest reviews very seriously. They help us improve and better our business.  However, we cannot agree with your evaluation, due to it's ambiguous content.  It appears to us that you did not recommend our hotel simply because you asked for an alcoholic beverage and could not get it as the hotel bar closed at...

A lovely place, with the most magnificent view of Búzios. Strategically located; near center of town and, of course, of the best restaurants and entertainment places . Helpful and pleasant staff. Highly recommended.

I had 5 days here last week and it was absolutely awesome. Although the staff didn't speak very good English, they would go out of their way to help me and were extra friendly. Breakfast was amazing, huge variety and the pool and pool area is great. The location is perfect, as are the views. Couldn't speak more highly of...

Amazing boutique hotel with a very homey feeling. The music background is excellent from calm slow soft bossanova to more lounge for afternoon swimming pool, you bump into a few celebrities (fashion world) like it's natural. The living room area is lovely as well as the outside and inside bars. I just love this place. The rooms are perfect for...

It is a quirky place. It is in need of a refit throughout. The seaview suites with balconies are rather dark. So is much of the interior. The service is friendly and flexible but not very efficient. The owner is there some of the time. Does not really interact with the guests. The large reception room nicely laid out with...

Got lucky finding this place without prior reservations. Boutique hotel with 19 rooms. Ours was on 2nd floor (top) with a balcony overlooking the terrace pool and the ocean. Very clean and quiet with very friendly staff, Teado being our favorite. Breakfast was included in our $200/nt. rate. (A "garden view room" is $40 less.) Besides the buffet they will...

“We selected one of the large suites on the lower floor at the far right end. I believe it is the best there. Just a warning, the pool deck is over your head and do not have your laptop outside in the am, as they wash down the deck and water comes down between the floor boards for the deck. This usually does not happen until about 9:00am though. Not too early, but the room is well worth the small inconvenience...”
