We stayed at Vila d'este hotel in November 2014. It was lovely. The most outstanding thing about this hotel was the view of the Bay from the Breakfast terrace and from Jacuzzi. The Breakfast was tasty. The decoration of the hotel was homemade and cozy. The hotel has private access to the embankment. I recommend Vila d'este hotel for a... More

We stayed here for the second week we had booked in Brazil, we were aiming for somewhere to chill out and relax and were not dissapointed. The hotel is small but very nice, the entrances are security protected which makes you feel safer. The interior is very stylish and clean making it feel very welcoming. Our room was very nice...

The place is just perfect. The superior room we ordered is actually a two room apartment, the location is perfect in the center, the view is incredible, and most of all the service is just the best I have ever had. After all the above we asked for a late checkout and got it for no extra charge. This place... More

We had a lovely experience during our honeymoon stay in March 2015 in this boutique hotel. It is beautifully decorated and we were delighted to receive a nice bottle of complimentary wine in our room on arrival. The staff were very friendly and made every effort to accommodate my wife's gluten free diet. Beautifully located in a bay, we were... More

Not the first time we´ve been, and the service and quality remains as good as ever. Doesn´t get much better than this for a quiet, relaxing weekend in Buzios. Great location, fantastic dining and one of the best sunset views in town.

Pros - Beautiful grounds, staff speaks English, gorgeous view of the water, good location. Cons - Pest infestation (extreme, read below!!), jacuzzi tub not properly maintained (felt like slime) and was not cleaned during our stay, lots of things fell into it and it just felt very dirty. Food served with ants and chicken was rotten. Staff was nice but...... More

Perfect location. Good hotel. Pool looks good and it's warm with a stunning view. Breakfast and dinner are really good, however dinner closes too early. One night i called the recepetion at 10:20 pm asking about dinner, and she said the kitchen closes at 10, while in the menu inside the room said 11. Then she transfered me to the... More

Great small boutique hotel, well located within a short walk of the main shopping area and restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff with quick, attentive service in the restaurant and bar. Two pools – one heated – and a small number of sunbeds, some with shade. During our 3 night stay we had lunch in twice and dinner once. All meals were... More
