We finished our trip of South America at Vila d'este and decided to splurge on the master suite ocean front. We took the bus from the Rio bus station in the morning and the trip took almost 2 hours longer than anticipated due to traffic and many stops along the way. We were very happy to get to our room...

This small hotel has a great location for the centre of Buzios.We wanted three days to unwind after a hectic few weeks touring South America. So we were really looking forward to our stay here.Sadly, it has not met our expectations.Our room is very small although we do have a bay view. At the moment a disco is blaring out... More

We booked to stay for three nights as part of our first trip to Brazil. We fell in love with this hotel as soon as we arrived. It is set on the side of a hill looking over the bay so the views are amazing, and the hotel layout makes the most of its position so you can admire the... More

Based on our one night stay, we were perfectly satisfied with this Pousada.. We thought the location was excellent. Our room had a gorgeous view. The hotel is situated on a hillside. If you have bad knees and can't walk inclines or stairs then this might not be the best choice for you. For us, we loved the easy access... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon in May 2014 and had a lovely time. We stayed in the master suite which was fantastic and well worth it. Good: The hotel setting is lovely and the communal areas are nicely done out. The master suite room is fantastic, the bed is very comfortable and the hot tub on the terrace was... More

On entering there was a beautiful aroma which was always present - i think to repel mosquitoes - worked wonders too. A young boy helped us when we came in - he spoke good english and looked after us well. The restaurant served good food and is overlooking the sea and a beautiful sunset at night, with the mountains in... More

Visited Buzios for the first time and was so impressed by Vila d'Este. I loved the rustic modern decor, the beauty of the setting, the fantastic breakfasts, the lovely rooms. It is a sensuous retreat with a very central location. Just watching the sunset seemed to make life perfect. The staff was excellent, very thoughtful. Only suggestions are a few... More

Beautiful setting on the bluff above Buzios. You do need to be able to walk down steep steps to get to the boardwalk and beach area. The rooms were clean and quite modern and the garden setting was very nice. There are a few rooms with harbor views. The restaurant was good with a great view of the sunset. Nice... More

This was undoubtedly the best place to stay in Buzios, i stayed for a weekend at a poorer alternative and got sick with a cold, which led me to look around town for a more comfortable place to nurse myself back to wellness. So on the monday morning with most hotels emptying of Rio residents, i visited 10 or more... More

We stayed at Vila d'este in early May at the end of our honeymoon and had an amazing time. It was the perfect spot for relaxing but had good restaurants a stones throw from the pousada. The moment we arrived and walked into the reception and looked out into the bay was very special - we knew after a longish... More
