This hotel didn't have the main services like drinks avaiable for the costumers inside the room. The breakfast wasn't so good. In my opinion, the price is só high for the service level presented.
This friendly family run guesthouse is situated in an ideal location near Praia Tartaruga (less than 5mins walk) and around 15mins to the centre. I have to mention that the owner does not speak English, but I managed to communicate with him with my limited Spanish and Portuguese. The room was spacious, equipped with a tv, air conditioning, fridge and bathroom - shower. The guesthouse does have a swimming pool but to be fair I spent most of my time at the beach. I would definitely recommend staying in Pousada Ilanga for backpackers and solo travellers if you like spending time at the beach (also there's frequent vans travelling to the centre) and the owner has been extremely helpful in recommending places to visit in & around Buzios
As the guesthouse is located off the main road and there were no street lights, he has mentioned that I should always take a taxi when travelling after dark.
Located in Buzios, Pousada Casa Cactus is in a state park, a 1-minute drive from Tartaruga Beach and 7 minutes from Ferradura Beach. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and lockers. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
