La Pitanga is beautiful and has perfect positioning, as it's close both to the amazing ferradura beach (if i remember the name correctly) and the city centre. Rooms are stylish and clean, and the breakfast was very tasty with fresh juice. And, of course, a very nice and friendly owner! We had an amazing weekend, thank you! :)

This pousada is great, great rooms, small, clean, A/C, Freezer, pool, garden. The bets thing is its cost considering everything in Buzios is very expensive. 15Min walking distance to downtown and 10 min to Ferradura Beach. Dont miss taking the day trip to Arrial du Cabo....beautiful trip...

Vila Pitanga is OK, but not great. The owner is nice, but that alone doesn't make a great hotel. Problems: - The swimming pool sucks. A funky prefab fiberglass tub is not a real swimming pool. - The rooms are small (especially downstairs). - The walk to town is not terrible, but seems a bit too long coming home at... More

DSamis, Manager at Pousada Vila Pitanga, responded to this review

Adequate but not great." Fair enough. No problem here. However, the second part, which says: "WHO IS WRITING THESE REVIEWS?" This is not acceptable. It is offensive to our team and our fantastic real guests. All Vila Pitanga's excellent reviews are authentic. We are very grateful to our 2011 and 2012 prizes and very happy to carry on providing a... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in Vila Pitanga in December and wished we planned for a longer stay. The pousada is extremely clean and tastefully decorated up on a small hill in a safe residential neighborhood about 15 minutes walking to the main center Rua das Pedras.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Vila Pitanga in November and loved it. It's so peaceful and tranquil. Denise is just lovely, so helpful and kind. It's around 10 - 15 mins away from the centre, and it's only about 10 mins from Ferradura beach. The beds are very comfortable and we loved the hammock outside our room.
