Ranked #51 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Great place to stay. Had a homey feel more than hotel. The breakfast was awesome! The French owners seem genuinely friendly and were very helpful. Great view of the water front and location. At night the area is very peaceful with little to no traffic and no noise! However you are still just a 5 -10 min walk from the center of the buzios night life.

It's a lovely pousada in Bùzios and Sylvia and Francis are incredibly kind and helpful. Our room had a great view on the sea and we really enjoyed its position as it's not far from Praya Azeda and Azedinha, two very nice beaches!
Unfortunately we had a very strong stomachache because we ate on the beach and it isn't a good idea for Europeans!! Sylvia and Francis were very kind and prepared some rice for us.
They also arranged all the transfers from Rio and to the international airport by bus and they were quite cheap! At night it's a bit noisy but it wasn't annoying!
We really suggest this nice pousada and we regret we didn't eat every day in their delicious restaurant.

Simple clean tidy rooms, we were in the back room but the rooms at the front with sea views, deck, looked even better. Best thing about this Pousada was the location and the meals cooked in the restaurant by the french owner Francis.. recommend the fish.

This is a real gem in Buzios. The place is central, but still in an quiet and relaxing area. Run by a very nice and helpful couple.
Rooms are simple and clean, and with a wonderful sea view.
The breakfast served is something you would not even in a expensive hotel.

PS: The owner is also a excellent chef, so the food here is also highly recommended.

Unfortunately we did not have the pleasure of staying at L'escale in Buzios as we discovered it on our last day. However the mixture of fantastic location right on the harbour, delicious french crepes and charismatic hosts would make this a definate choice for a return trip to Buzios.
Ask for a room at the front for a balcony with sea views.
Try Frances's mother's dessert-to die for!
