Desiree from London
An exceptionally relaxed, friendly and peaceful place to stay.
that we could not spend longer there.
The Service was extremely friendly, efficient and always with a smile of their faces. Not only from the service of the restaurant staff by also the Front Desk Reception, the maids and the gardeners. Coming from London, it was a therapeutic experience just to spend time on the terrace overlooking the sea and wonderful views with a tea or coffee and their home made cakes or cocktails in the evening. The breakfasts was extremely delicious and the quality of the fruits, juices etc was very good. The selection of bread and cakes was excellent and all the cakes were home made each day. There was no pressure for time when the breakfast would be closed. The staff are so friendly that even if they cleared some of the breakfast away, they will always bring you want you want. If you wanted to have lunch on the terrace, it was freshly prepared by the chefs and again the quality of the food very good and delicious. The whole ambience of the hotel made you feel extremely relaxed and comfortable. The location of the hotel was fantastic - walking distance to the main street, restaurants, bars, shops, gyms, beaches, etc. Also the water taxis stand was within a few minutes walk which gave you quick access to other beaches. The normal taxis the same. The views from the terrace all day was FANTASTIC, but the views at Sunset was the highlight of our days there. In fact we extended our stay so that we could spend an extra week not only to be in Buzios but to enjoy the hotel and hospitality of the owner and all his team. It is an exceptionally special place to stay (not like a hotel but the owners home). We are already looking forward to returning there within the next couple of months.
Water from the minibar was overpriced but very pleasant stay overall.
Staff was great, especially Lucia. We were able to borrow umbrellas when it was raining.
Location Friendly staff Great breakfast
Nada. Tudo foi perfeito. Nothing. Everything was perfect.
O café da manhã delicioso e do atendimento perfeito do Alex e do Janio. Delicious breakfast and the nice service.
Amazing view from character hotel
Only issues was the Wi-Fi, Connor took was really poor and only could get it in your room.
Fantastic property overlooking the bay with a spectacular view. Best sunset we have experienced on our trip. Breakfast was amazing, plenty too eat and great quality. Room and facilities we great too, rustic building with tonnes of character which we loved.
Nice hotel for a short stay
Breakfast was a little underwhelming
Comfortable bed, nice balcony, although the room will depend what view you like.
Need some repairs, old rooms
Location near Convention Center and Orla Bardot
A fabulous place to stay
Having to leave ;)
This place is fabulous, comfy bed , sea view with balcony breakfast very good , I would stay here anytime , take a sea view room !
The greatest facilities & location per $
The tv was not in the middle of the room - causing the further away person watching it to pains in the neck...
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 pics reflect the view from the pool...
The bar was closed at 10.30 pm; the barman asked the owner, who was watching TV if we could have a drink but ' the bar was closed' This is very early for a Saturday night
Location was fantastic; walking distance from both the town and fabulous beaches. Breakfast staff were charming and couldn't do enough to make you feel comfortable
One of Buzio's best kept secrets!
Breakfast was from 08.30-11.00 Would have liked it a bit earlier so one could then head off to the beach before it gets busy and the sun too hot.
Great location. Great pool. Great breakfast. Best rooms to take 108/109/110/111 as they overlook the pool and have ocean view. We had rooms 203/204 which had great ocean view but located 1 floor below the pool (hotel on split level). It was a gentle stroll each evening to 'Centro' where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Looking forward to returning later this year.
Fabulous El Cazar!
El Cazar is a total gem! We took a chance booking this hotel on a last minute trip to Buzios and we are so glad we did. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, going totally above and beyond. The breakfast was lovely and the hotel pool and area was very clean and well maintained. It's in a brilliant location too, only a 5 minute walk to the centre. We're just disappointed that we couldn't have stayed longer!
Great location and hotel
Excellent rooms, breakfast and caipirinhas. Great view from room. Right in centre of town with private parking.
Rooms little old fashioned
Good all round
It is marevelous ! :)
