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

Stylish hotel in a charming resort. This small hotel is very well laid out in that the attractive and spacious common areas give the impression of a much larger establishment this is reinforced by the restaurant and two small swimming pools. There is a feeling of calm and stillness . On a very steep site access would be a problem... More

First off, this is a cute boutique hotel that does a lot right. We had the misfortune of getting one of their problem rooms. We stayed for three nights over Christmas in room 13. Check in was uneventful though no welcome drink was offered and we were told that the room would not be ready until official check in time.... More

Stayed for 7 nights. I will keep this simple - would go back tomorrow if I could. Lovely and attentive staff and excellent location. We stayed in the Master Suite which was fantastic. Great heated pool. Only down side, which the hotel can do nothing about, but I think is important. The hotel is situated in a hillside/cliffside and therefore... More

We were starting a lengthy trip to Brazil and a cruise back to Miami and wanted somewhere close to Rio which was relaxing to get our holiday started. Vila d'este and Buzios were an excellent choice. Buzios was amazing -- not like the hustle and bustle of Rio at all. We felt safe the whole time and enjoyed the restaurants... More

It is in a great location with panoramic views over the bay. The room was spacious, food very good and the staff unobtrusive and helpful. The only reason for not giving five stars was the shambles in trying to arrange a car from the airport. I booked it with them and was then asked to email or fax copies of... More

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...
