Excellent location, excellent people. Nothing else to say.
I can say I went there by mistake but enjoyed each day of the 2 weeks spent in Cabo Frio and surrounding areas.
I initially planned to stay at Buzios but changed my mind after reading all the positive reviews for Cabo Frio and Casa Dois Gatos pousada. An excellent and affordable bed & breakfast well located. Cabo Frio is only half hour bus ride of Arraial do Cabo, diving paradise and of the mythic Buzios.
Overall, great travel experience thanks to Alex, Casa Dois Gatos pousada owner, constant help.
The best at this pousada is the owner and the staff: Their friendliness exceeds anyone's expectations. It's beyond smiles and getting fine service, because they even suggest trip ideas and the owner suggested that I could keep the room until my late departure.
The breakfast buffet is generous, varied and fresh.
The location is very good to visit both Buzios and Cabo Frio/Arraial do Cabo. The pousada looks like it's in the middle of nowhere very interesting, but the beach in front of it, a 20-minute walk or a 3-minute drive, is very nice and not busy.
The facilities are simple but comfortable and clean.
Cabo Frio is home to Praia do Forte, one of the most popular beaches in the area and the perfect spot for snorkeling, surfing, or catching rays on the white sand. Hungry visitors can enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants along Boulevard Canal. Other notable sights include Bikini Road, an open-air shopping mall specializing in beachwear, and the 17th-century stone fortress of Forte São Mateus.
