We stayed at Vila d'este at the end of our 2 week South American honeymoon. The grounds are absolutely stunning, and the food was delicious. Breakfast every morning was fantastic with a great variety of foods. We also had dinner one night at the hotel's restaurant which was one of our nicest night's during our trip. The restaurant is small and romantic with one of the best dinners we've had. The people at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. We especially loved David and Antonella! Antonella made us feel like we were staying with a close friend. She was so sweet and we had such a nice conversation with her upon check out. The hotel's location is also perfect with a very short walk to all the local attractions. The only thing that would have made our trip better was if the wait staff had been a little more attentive. They were great during breakfast, but while we were lounging around the pool they were very hard to find and were often clustered together talking amongst themselves. It would have been nice if they asked us if we needed anything. There were a few times where we wanted to order drinks, but they were no where to be found. One time we had asked for an umbrella and the man left and was gone for a half hour and never came back while we baked in the strong Brazilian sun. I also had wished they had tried to speak a little more English. We tried to communicate in Portuguese, but we don't speak it very well so it was hard to communicate. Also, there seems to be a shortage of chairs in the lounging areas. There was only 2 chairs in the prime area by the pool and one couple completely took over this area and would leave their things there after going back to their room for hours. There was room for more chairs in this area so I was confused why one couple was monopolizing the entire area. These were are only complaints. Other than that it was a relaxing stay!
