The logo on staff shirts is 'handmade hospitality' and this appellation is absolutely correct in terms of the top-of -the range staff service and hospitality we experienced.There are only 15 rooms, so it is a very personal place to stay. Nice welcome drink on the pool deck, beautiful room with its own little courtyard, nice toiletries(l'occitaine), bathrobes, very comfortable double...

My two sisters and i stumbled onto this hotel while in Buzios in late July and what a find! It was the last leg of our trip and we were looking forward to some beach time and relaxing. This place was perfect! We stayed four nites and got a great rate and fantastic service! The slogan is 'handmade hospitality' which...

Just amazing. This was spectacular. The welcome made us feel like celebrities - from the desk, to the petals on our beds and (given that the hotel was mostly empty) having the beautiful facilities (jacuzzi, steam room, candlelit bar) almost to ourselves. It is trendy and classy with a beautiful view over Buzios bay; truly a stunning place to be.

We stayed at the hotel for the weekend and it was pretty good experience. The rooms are very clean (but are a lot smaller than what they look like in pictures), the bathroom is great, and the bed is very comfy. however, things that aren't that good: 1. at night, there is a bit of noise from the clubs down...

A five star breakfast (fruit, breads, quiches, pastries, eggs, juice and more) and a pool with the best view of the bay in all of buzios do not make up for the multiple inconvienences we experienced. Specifically no washcloths, thin walls that allow you to hear every piece of luggage wheeled across the cobblestones and your neighbors conversations, and no...

We stayed there in September 2011. It was very nice, great views of the bay with lounge music during sunset, nice breakfast and friendly staff. Rooms are small but comfortable and have L'Occitane amenities. A door downstairs leads to Búzios main street for restaurants and shops. I recommend it!!!

We were lucky enough to stay at the Vila d'este over new years eve. The service, attention to detail and overall experience was exceptional. We booked for 5 days in the master suite, definitely worth the expense if you can do it. The hotel was the highlight of our 3 week stay in Brazil. The setting is perfect but what...

Buzios is a small peninsula with many small beach, alternated with rocks, small ports, small islands, flowers and trees. It is just lovely and a MUST to be seen for whoever likes the sea, the nature, but also for people loving nightlife as Buzios is very reach of night attractions. Vila d'Este is on a top of a hill in...
