Varandas ao Mar Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Arraial do Cabo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2013

"Varandas ao Mar" means "Balconies at the Sea" in Portuguese. A rather weird name choice, since the vast majority of rooms have balconies that face the sides of this beachfront hotel. And that's a pity, since the beach is the best feature here - not too crowded even in a Holiday, with blue/green ocean and white, fine sand...

We were in a large group of divers, so it was a good choice - hotel is average, but so are the rates. But don't expect too much privacy or silence - you can hear everything that goes on in the next room, from shower/toilet to the sound of the TV!

Reviewed 29 May 2013

Probably the best location in Arraial. The beach is ally beautiful and good for kids. Apart from the location we weren't that happy with the pousada. It seemed overpriced compared to a place like Buzios. Dark, smelly rooms. When we were there the hotel was almost completely deserted, yet they gave us the worst rooms (we booked through booking.com). When we complained they said they needed to keep the better rooms available in case some "drop-in guests" turned up. They were also deliberately trying to overcharge. We were travelling with 3 young children. One day at breakfast one of our kids did not eat so we brought 2 plain breadbuns with us. For this they charged us 14 reais!!! I have stayed at many pousadas in Brazil and have never experienced anything like this.
