“Cute pousada in a great location”
Reviewed 18 January 2006

For the price compared to other similar pousadas in Buzios, I thought the Vila do Mar was fantastic. Stayed for three days having come from the UK for a week and I was glad to have done my research and found this little gem!

The location is brilliant, right next to the main street but very quiet and seems very secluded when you go inside the gates. The rooms are gorgeous with a sort of treehouse feeling with low ceilings and steps up to the rooms. Even my standard room had a sitting area and balcony. Not five star by any stretch of the imagination but for a romantic weekend, privacy and location I thought the Vila do Mar was great.

There are definitely fancier places to stay in Buzios, but this spot can't be beat if you're looking for close proximity to Rua das Petras with its various restaurants and bars. Rooms are simple and a bit on dark, but definitely satisfactory and the pousada has a nice "jungley" feel to it.

I have stayed at this pousada twice in the past and have had a great experience both times. It's a great pousada for people that want to be near the night life of Buzios as it is located basically at the end of the pedestrian street 'Rua das Pedras'. This is the commercial street with lots of shops, restaurants, bars etc. The pousada is on the street that ends at the pier.

The pousada is nice and clean but nothing out of this world. I highly suggest couples to request rooms 1, 3 or 5 as they are nice rooms with a great view out over the harbor. These rooms have a living area with a bar separated from the bedroom. Nice queen size bed in the bedroom with A/C window unit. Breakfast is included and is nice as they generally will prepare what you would like (within the typical scope of a Brazilian breakfast). Not a really big place so maybe not a place for a group.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that as this hotel is in the middle of all the nightlife, don't be surprised if the sound of the nightlife continues late into the night and early morning hours. If you are looking for a nice quiet holiday, this may not be the pousada for you. However, in the bedroom with the window A/C unit on, the sound emanating from the streets really isn't too bad.
