My partner and I spent 11 nights at this lovely place over XMAS 2011. Denise the owner was very friendly and helpful prior to our arrival and once we arrived nothing changed.ALL the 'girls' who worked at the Pousada were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great breakfast which was served from 8am in a light and airy room and all the people staying while we were there were friendly and engaging. Our room was fine, everything you needed for a chilled out holiday in the sun. The location of the Pousada is ideal for those wanting to explore the whole area of Buzios and we loved the local beach which was about 10 mins walk away. There was a tranquil feel to the place which we enjoyed given that we had just spent 5 days in Rio.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor, you get more privacy and even better views!!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in Vila Pitanga in December and wished we planned for a longer stay. The pousada is extremely clean and tastefully decorated up on a small hill in a safe residential neighborhood about 15 minutes walking to the main center Rua das Pedras. It's also about a 10 minute walk (in opposite direction) to Ferradura beach, our favorite beach on Buzios. If you choose to take a taxi to and from town, the cost is $R15 which is about $USD8. Once you walk to the main street (5 mins), you can take local vans that zoom up and down Buzios to visit some of the 15+ beaches. The cost for the public van is $R2.
The breakfast consists of fresh fruits, cereal, yoguart, cake, toast, cold cuts, cheese andmade-to-order eggs, and of course tea and coffee. The freshly squeezed OJ is delicious!

Denise the owner, like everyone else mentioned, is warm, friendly and super helpful. The two restaurants she recommended were the best seafood places (O'Barco and David's Restaurant) we had in both Buzios and Rio. She even helped us book the bus transfer from Rio Int. airport to Buzios which was a big help since private car hire was expensive and other small van agencies were hard to reach if you didn't speak portuguese. On the 2nd day of our trip, we discovered our ATM card numbers have been stolen and Denise stayed late with us to help us call our bank in the US. She truly strives to provide the best service and homey environment for her guests.

Thank you Denise for such a wonderful vacation in Buzios, we loved it and hope to stay at your pousada again!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have hammocks.

We had a fantastic 4 nights stay at Vila Pitanga in December 2011. The Pousada is very clean, serves a substantial breakfast with eggs, fruit, bread, yoghurt etc., has a good location with walking distance to two beautiful beaches as well as the city centre. Not to mention the owner Denise who is very friendly and happy to answer any questions you might have. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Buzios.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Vila Pitanga in November and loved it. It's so peaceful and tranquil. Denise is just lovely, so helpful and kind. It's around 10 - 15 mins away from the centre, and it's only about 10 mins from Ferradura beach. The beds are very comfortable and we loved the hammock outside our room.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor which was nice. The view outside was lovely to wake up to.

Vila Pitanga was awesome! It was just as described. Denise (the owner) was so friendly and helpful even before we arrived. She sent specific instructions and even booked the bus transfer (1001 bus - from Rio - perfect and "cheap" transfer!). Once we got there, she was available to us every time we had a question. She’s full of helpful tips about Buzios and where to go. We can recommend: renting a Buggy car to see all of the beaches and to do a day trip to the "Brazilian Carribean".

The pousada is charming. It’s so well tended and taken care of. It’s up on a hill and has beautiful garden and view (no sea view, but still beautiful). It is a short walk to the center of Buzios with shops, restaurants and banks etc. We liked that it wasn’t right on the main strip.

The rooms were nice and clean.

One of our favorite things was the breakfast. Delicious eggs made to order, fresh squeezed orange juice, strong, hot Brazilian coffee, cheese, ham, fruits and a homemade cake.

Of course this is not a first class hotel, but Vila Pitanga is a great quality pousada for the price it costs. It was exactly what we wanted. If we return to Buzios, we wouldn’t look anywhere else.
