THE ROOM Although we didn't had any reservation we still got a very nice room with seaview. It was really spacious, in addition to the sleeping area which was separated by a wood truss there was a living room area with a small kitchen and a large white leather sofa. The room featured a view of the ocean, directed towards...

We went here with a friend after staying in another backpack not as well situated. No reservation, we just got there in the afternoon and booked for two nights. The price was 240 Reais per Night, we can easily fit 3 people in the room. The room was ok : one queen size Bed, one normal Bed and a hammock,...

I hate to write a bad review, but in the case I feel it is necessary. I stayed at Vila Do Mar for my honeymoon last year and the staff really ruined our stay there. The hotel itself is nice and well decorated. The location is great as well, right downtown and within walking distance to many great restaurants. Anyway,...

This is a very nice pousada, with good location and excellent breakfast (the best I had in Brazil, all home made, superb!!). Room are spartan but peculiar. On the negative, the personnel not so much comunicative, hence this impacts at the end.

We stayed at the Vila Pitanga for 5 nights over NYE. That place was fine, we were happy with it. But every night we would walk about 1 mile to Centro, the main town area where all the restaurnts and many shops are. Our favorite place to eat is part of the Vila Do Mar - it's called Sinatra. I...

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. When you walk in it is breathtaking. Stayed here for 5 nights, but hated the first two because there is a nightclub down the way that played loud techno until 7 am...not much for relaxation. That being said, there were so many other benefits of this hotel...the location, they had a wonderful breakfast, the service...

My friend and I stayed at Vila do Mar for two nights after being in Rio for 5 days. Buzios was a relaxing dream after dealing with Rio, and this inn is the perfect place to stay. The room was adorably appointed, with great art, nice linens, and comfortable furniture. The view to the ocean from room 3 is lovely....

This is a charming, clean hotel located just off the Buzios' Centre square. Some will be reminded of Swiss Family Robinson by the manner in which trees, foliage and rooms are designed. Mario, the Argentine proprietor, also runs the annual Buzios film festival. Look for the programs and pictures that dot the common rooms. The staff is EXTREMELY attentive. the...

I stayed at this hotel two summers ago. The rooms are the lobby are average, maybe there are too much plants. The people at the front desk is not kind, the pool is too little to enjoy it and almost outside the hotel. The location is fine but it is too expensive if this is the only point in favour....
