What a delight, step through the little door off the street and you are greeted by what feels like a secret garden path up to reception. A few steps more and you open out onto a small pool... And then the magnificent view over the Orla Bardot to the bay... It feels like you have

I am bad at taking room pictures, but I loved the quality of all materials used, which were top notch. When reading reviews of other hotels in the same price range, it seems that their rooms are a bit more basic than Vat ila D'este.

I didn't drive so cannot categorically answer the question but there seemed to be quite a few residential roads close to the hotel where I would have thought you could park.

Hi Jennifer Our room was on the lowest level, think was room 13,with sea view. But the plunge pool was almost adjacent.Hence the noise.But it was. A Friday and Saturday night.By Sunday the people concerned had left and all was quiet again. The noise was mainly during the day and the evenings were much quieter with less invasive music. The main pool was small with beds all round.Service was ok,.We ate in the restaurant once and food was reasonable.Breakfast was not the best we had inSouth America but was adequate, I would agree with a previous comment, the bass we heard in our room was really bad. Buzios is great place...busy at weekends but much quieter during the week. Hope this helps.

"There are probably 5 or 6 rooms/suites with a magnificent sea view. Well worth the extra cost."
"Loved the Vila with Garden Tub for the intimacy"
"Choose a room with a view over the sea/promenade!"
"We had a room with a jacuzzi overlooking the bay and can recommend the views in the afternoon as the sun sets"
"The premium suites have private entrances and are reasonably secluded, with a lot of privacy, almost as if you were not in a hotel at all."
US$162 - US$452 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
