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

My sister and i went to Buzios for the weekend - and were lucky to find this gem! The views are absolutely amazing of the bay below, it is clean, service very good and close to the city centre. If i came back to Buzios i would stay here again - no doubt!

This is a delightful hotel with wonderful views over the bay. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean with nice toiletries , we had a garden room with a little patio. The breakfast was very good with plenty of fresh fruit. The restaurant in the evening was a bit expensive and there are so many good restaurants within walking distance... More

Tucked away on a hill overlooking the bay of Buzios, this little hotel was a wonderful surprise with a serene atmosphere just a minute away from the village of Buzios. Inside and out, the atmosphere was tranquil and soothing and the service was outstanding throughout our stay. Our three rooms overlooked the pool area with terraces and spectacular views of... More

This hotel is truly like something you see in a glamorous travel mag and always wonder whether these places actually exist. They do, and this is by far the most beautiful accommodation we have ever stayed in. We were there for only 2 nights at the end of our honeymoon as we wanted a place that was beautiful and laid...

We stayed at Vila d'este for the first two nights of our honeymoon. The original plan was to stay for five but that all changed when we discovered that MASSIVE construction was set to take place. This was not your everyday upkeep, this was incessant chainsaws and jackhammers from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM for four days. Also, keep in... More

The hotel is just in the right spot, on the sea side, in walking distance from the village and from several beaches. Relaxing atmosphere, great heated swimming pool (plus another one), very nice rooms.
