Pousada Vila Pitanga
Ranked #26 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2009

I stayed in Villa Pitanga at the end of October for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my stay. Buzios itself is fabulous. Incredible beaches, lovely shops, great nightlife and very safe. Villa Pitanga is a 15 minute walk from the centre of Buzios. It is a pleasant stroll once it is not raining as one of the roads is unpaved. However, a taxi costs only $R12. From what I saw of Buzios it is quite spread out so although accomodation is advertised as being in Buzios in many circumstances it is several kilometres away from the centre. Also, accomodation in the centre did not appear to reach the standards of Villa Pitanga. In addition, it is quite noisy in the centre at night. Villa Pitanga itself is gorgeous. Rooms are spotlessly clean, bright and airy. Views are lovely and for once everything is as it appears on the website. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning. Fruit, bread, cheese, eggs, juice etc. The owner Denise is outstanding. Professional in every aspect yet also exceptionally friendly and helpful. Denise made our stay in Buzios uncomplicated and relaxing. If I ever have the opportunity to return to Buzios I will stay at Villa Pitanga.

I wasnt going to write a review because everyone has already said it, but feel I need to add to the already long list of praise. This is a lovely Pousada; basic but attractive and functional rooms, large showers, comfortable clean beds great view from the hammock and congenial host. Quite frankly I can see why its number one. The Pousada has obviously been designed with care by its architect owner and everything about it is just perfect. The breakfast was just right, the coffee the best so far. Denise lets you use her lap top whenever you need to use the internet or you can use her wifi on your ipod/own computer. The pousada is not in the centre of town but quite close up a dirt track. When we arrived it was pouring with rain so the dirt track was a mud track, but once it had dried off it was more managable. So if you plan to go out every night in high heels it might pose a problem but then you can always get a taxi. Dont hesitate unless you want to be in the centre of town, this definitely is the best in its price range.

We loved Pousada Vila Pitanga! What a great escape from the noise of the city (Rio).
Pitanga is centrally located- you can walk to nearby beaches. Vila Pitanga is far enough away from the town that you don't get all the night noise. Denise was a great host and very informative! The breakfast is delicious and fresh. The rooms are perfect!
The rede (hammock) in the front of the room is a nice compliment to the relaxing environment. Buzios needs to work on the barking dog situation. If you are a light sleeper, you may have problems!

We went to Buzios for vacation and had a recommendation from a friend for another pousada, but because of the reviews on this site I decided to book the Vila Pitanga. Right from the beginning I had a good feeling from the first email I received from the owner, Denise. She is so friendly and helpful, giving directions and bus routes from Rio. Once we got there she was very helpful with info on restaurants, beaches, taxis, snorkeling sites, etc.

The room was good size, clean and had a large shower (big enough for 2!). We had a hammock right outside our door with great views. The property itself is beautifully maintained and has a swimming pool and many nice plantings, including gorgeous hibiscus in many colors. Denise serves a typical Brazilian breakfast with fresh fruits, breads, ham, cheeses, scrambled eggs made to order, and coffee. It was a great start to the day, and this is coming from someone who typically doesn't eat breakfast.

The location of Vila Pitango is perfect. You are in a quite & secluded location away from the noise of the center of town, yet it is only a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown and the beach. If you get lazy and need a taxi, you can grab one for R$12 (we did that a couple of times after staying out until 2am.)

If we could had stayed longer we would have, but unfortunately we already paid for accommodations in Rio. We will definitely be going back to Pousada Vila Pitango on our next trip Brazil!

We spent a week with Denise in her lovely pousada to take a break in our travelling schedule and it was a real treat. The clean uncluttered rooms and living areas provide a peaceful and calm environment, which is repeated in the garden design. The healthy breakfast of fresh juice, fruit, scrambled eggs and baquettes, was such a nice change from the many over sweet croisants we have been eating, and Denise herself is the perfect host. She is always there to do anything for you when you need her and absent when you dont. The Pousada is perfectly located to be walking distance from a variety of beaches, restaurants, and shops, yet far enough away to be lovely and quiet. We felt really at home and came away refreshed.

I had a great time in Buzios, particularly in Pousada Vila Pitanga. The service is great, as i can say the same of the location and rooms. Great pool, great breakfast and a big comfort bed.

The special touch is given by Denise, owner of the place, who demonstrated lots of sympathy and affection.

I surely recommend this place to everyone who intends to have a great time in Buzios.
