From the moment you arrive, you are made very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble, and always first class service. The views from the ocean front rooms and pool area has to be sone of the best in Buzios especially the sunsets.

If you go to Buzios, please stay here. It is the best hotel I have ever been to. Choose it over the next door Casas Bracas (sp?) - it's more intimate and unique. Surroundings are beautiful. Food is delish. Jacuzzi overlooking the bay is sensational. Pay the extra for a room with a balcony and view.

Me and my mum stayed at the Vila D'este for the last three nights of our South American trip. From the moment we arrived the staff welcomed us warmly and looked after us so attentively.
