This hotel is small but beautifully positioned with views of the sea from bedrooms and breakfast terrace and is an easy walk from the centre. The hosts were friendly and exceptionally helpful making our stay really enjoyable. The restaurant sadly wasn't open but we were treated to excellent breakfasts and advice on where to watch the sunset and eat out....

My wife and I visited the restaurant for lunch, looking for something different and a little more substantial that fast food and pizza which are the staples of Búzios. Greeting on arrival was warm, patient and sincere. The homemade pâtè was an excellent start (together with champagne) and the boeuf bourguignon was lovely. While a long wait is desirable when...

We stayed at the pousada for a few nights. The French owners of Pousada L'escale are very kind and willing to help in any way they can. The food at the restaurant is delicious and faithful to the French style. The hammocks outside the front rooms are fantastic for a rainy day or relaxing in the evening. The rooms are...

Pousada L’Escale is a small hotel run by a very nice frensh couple. I had a room with seaview and balcony. Room is smallish with limited storage space. Air-con was old, but it worked fine. Nice bathroom, but water pressure was no good. On the ground floor there are a restaurant that serves decent French food. Breakfast is very good...

We loved dining at this restaurant. We had breakfast here every morning, enjoying fresh fruit salad, omelette and great coffee. We also visited for lunch, my husband had the steak and I had a wonderful fish with vegetables. We also stopped for dessert one night and had the decadent chocolate mousse and profiteroles. Both were incredible and we would have...

Sylvia and Francis who own and operate the hotel and restaurant are wonderful people. They were welcoming and friendly, and they went above and beyond. My friend left her mobile phone in a taxi when we left the hotel to take a bus back to Rio. Sylvia called the taxi company and located the phone, then she found a couple...

We have staid in the Pousada L'Escale and can only highly recommend the guesthouse as well as the restaurant. The hosts are a lovely good-humoured French couple who make you feel at home instantly. In addition, Francis is a great chef making the guesthouse's restaurant a highly recommended option in Buzios!

The location, although a walk to the 'centre' was the best in buzios. There are charming views from the posada and a nice welcome from the owners. We were disappointed with breakfast- lack of fresh bread so we decided not to try the restaurant for dinner. The rooms have had a 'quick fix' and so don't feel very loved and...

Great atmosphere, warm welcome and unique location. The nicely furnished room with sea view and the hamac on the balcony makes it probably the best spot in Buzios. Breakfast with fruits, omelet, coffee, croissants and fresh juice! The room is really comfy. Of course, you also enjoy the noisy atmosphere of the street, but watching people dancing samba from the...
