“Denise was great”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

I had read the trip advisor reviews before booking and they were not wrong. All rooms sleep 3 which suited us since we had our 3 kids with us. Very clean and a lovely breakfast. Fridges in every room with cheap soft drinks, beer and water. It was about 5 minutes walk from the nearest beach and about 15 mins into town. We loved Buzios with its abubdance of beautiful beaches. One day Denise arranged for us to hire a buggy and we visited most of the beaches. Denise has great English, since she worked in London. She was really helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in her beautiful Vila Pitanga.

Trip Advisor strikes again. Following this site's best tips again (after successful attempts in Japan and Buenos Aires), I made reservations at Vila Pitanga. The owner is very warm and receptive while being very honest about how "simple" her Pousada is over the phone.
The Pousada is very well located, super clean and the rooms have all necessary devices that an affordable accommodation should have. Good decor, excellent bathroom...good spaces (i have satyed in much more expensive hotels in Buzios with less space in the rooms)....
Breakfast is as good as it gets if you are not looking for a gourmet trip...and it is perfect if you consider the price of your stay.
Minor problems: no shampoo in the bathrooms (males usually do not carry these items in their bags) and some noise from distant neighborhoods until around 1 AM....nothing very disturbing but it is certainly felt by a hardcore set of ears...
In sum, this is the typical stay in which you get the best value for your money....

- excellent breakfast
- beautiful views (trees & lake, rather than the sea, but very pretty)
- warm welcome
- good location (about 10-15 min to Rua das Pedras, and about 10min to the nearest beach)
- cozy rooms (basic but comfortable)

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have great views

Vila Pitanga is a great place to stay - it's near several beaches and within walking distance of all the bars and restaurants. And on top of that Denise, the owner, is unbelievably helpful and kind. Definitely a bargain!

Lovely comfortable place to stay in Buzios. Denise is very welcoming and offers great advice on the local area, where to eat, etc - a very friendly and hospitable host. The rooms are comfortable, a good size and have air con and ceiling fans. Rooms upstairs have great view over buzios and hammocks on the shared veranda - not luxurious but everything you need for a relaxing stay. Breakfast is a mix of eggs, cheese, ham, bread, fresh fruit, cakes, tea, coffee and juice. Vila PItanga is in a great location 10 mins walk to the beach and also the shops/restaurants - close enough to the action but quiet enough to get away. Great value for what we paid and highly recommended. Thank you Denise!

Room Tip: Request a room upstairs if available

Good luck finding a B&B in Buzios - not because there aren't enough but the opposite, there are so many that it is impossible to tell one from the other. Your headaches are over - Vila Pitanga is a safe bet for people seeking to spend quality time in Buzios. It is quiet with a homy feeling yet it offers all the basic amenities, including a pool and a made to order breakfast. Rooms are nice and clean especially the ones on the second floor. Young people can walk to the main street but the older folks need a car. It is not designed for business travelers and it is not the kind of place that you ring the phone in the middle of the day for room service but Denise is a gracious hostess and will take care of your needs. Last but not least it is more affordable than other comparable properties. It is a no brainer.

This is not a luxurious place, but it has all you need to have a great stay in Buzios. Rooms are comfortable and service is top quality.
Being from Brazil but having used TripAdvisor abroad, I decided to trust its recommendations on my home country and I was not disappointed. The location is not perfect as it is not on the beach or on the village center, but both are within a short walk.
Best of all is Denise, who speaks English very well and gives visitors all the best tips about Buzios.
Highly recommended and would definitely come back!
