The hotel is nice, with very cool open lobby, leafy pathways to the public areas and a genuinely stunning view across the bay for breakfast. The Infinity pool is nicely done and it looked like it was directly accessible from the honeymoon suite on the same level. The rooms themselves are fine - not outstanding but good. The location is...

The staff is extremely attentive and willing to assist with every minor issue. Breakfast is very nice and served in a dinning room facing the beach. Looking... More

We stayed here on our final stop in Rio and loved every minute. We were looking for the ultimate relaxing end to our holiday and got just that! We stayed in room 14 - highly recommended. Not only did we look out onto the bay of Buzios but we had our very own hot tub. We spent many an evening... More

We arrived late at night after a three hour drive from Rio feeling very tired but the staff were very welcoming. Our room had a lovely view over the sea and the swimming pool below. On the next level down was... More

We stayed at Villa D'este during our honeymoon trip to Brazil and was the best hotel ever...absolutely beautiful! Amazing views on Buzios bay, beautiful gardens, finely furbished rooms and very friendly staff. Will definitely recommend this hotel as the best option when visiting the town.

My mom and I actually stayed here without realizing it was more of a "couples" place, nonetheless, we loved it! Our first assigned room was just fine, but since we'd come all the way to Brazil we decided to see if we could upgrade our room to one with a view/hot tub. We were able to move to that room,...
