We have just spent 2 nights at Vila d'este in Buzios.... What a refreshing and fun place to visit, fits right into the surrounding environment. Slightly upmarket, it lifts itself above the hustle and bustle of the promenade and shopping areas.... Very friendly and welcoming staff, wonderful barman who made us intriguing cocktails and some great meals with a view... More

The hotel is nice, with very cool open lobby, leafy pathways to the public areas and a genuinely stunning view across the bay for breakfast. The Infinity pool is nicely done and it looked like it was directly accessible from the honeymoon suite on the same level. The rooms themselves are fine - not outstanding but good. The location is...
