Pousada Vila Pitanga

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2010

after few nites in rio, we decided to go to buzios. my husband and i stayed here for 3 nites. it was such a pleasant stay. u wake up with a perfect breeze and sleep with the sounds of nature. it is very relaxing and close enough to everything. u can walk to the beach or to the center of town. if u don't feel like walking (being lazy like me) u can ask denise (proprietor) to call for a cab (12 reias and thats' the cabs minimum). denise is the owner and she helps u with everything.....directions fr. rio, making reservations for hair salon, scooter,buggy, cab going back to airport,etc....nothing is big or small favor. just asked her ur questions and she's got an answer. there is also free internet service and u get a very good signal fr. the front desk, 2 bars outside ur room (we stayed on the top floor).
bkfast is decent fr. 8-11am. it is clean and basic. there is a pool but we didn't use it,why use a pool when ur surrounded by beautiful beaches?
i highly recommend this place and we'll surely be back!
thanks denise for all ur help.

tips: bring ur own shampoo n conditioner since not provided
put ur tv channel to 3 and use ur vcr remote to change channels (otherwise u wont get any channel but the home shopping.
denise will lend u her laptop but it's better to bring ur own since the front desk closes at 10:30p

Vila Pitanga is very quaint, clean, and beautiful. The views in the hammocks are awesome. The rooms are spacious and clean. The grounds are very well-kept, and Denise couldn't be more helpful.

The reviews on Vila Pitanga are spot on. Denise (owner) is a very gracious host. She is fluent in many languages and extremely willing to help with any guest needs.
The pousada itself is about a 20 minute walk to Ferradura Beach in one direction and 15 minute walk to town in the other. My Wife and I felt very safe walking in any direction from the pousada. The surroundings are very quiet and secluded. We had an upstairs room and really enjoyed the views from the hammock. Although we never used the pool, it looked very clean and was being used by other guests. The breakfast in the morning was a very clean setup that consisted of fresh coffee, fresh breads, ham, several cheeses and cooked to order eggs.
Overall a great stay for 5 nights and highly recommended. You just can't beat the price for the quality of stay you receive.

Vila Pitanga is perfectly located in Buzios, within walking distance to most beaches and the restaurants in the centre and Ola Bardot, yet far enough from it all to be peaceful and calm. The owner knows Buzios well and will help you have a great stay.

We stayed at Vila Pitanga as part of our honeymoon in Dec 2009. From the moment we arrived in Buzios, Denise, the owner, was as welcoming and inviting as her wonderful garden, where you could watch humming birds enjoy the flowers as you sat by the pool. The rooms are white, light and airy, very clean and well equipped with air con, fridge, tv, not that we used ours, as we spent a lot of time chilling out in the hammock outside our room talking in the view and enjoying afternoon snoozes and reading when the beach was a bit hot. Denise was so friendly we felt an instant bond with her and she was so helpful in arranging trips, recommending restaurants and just helping us get the most out of our stay. In a location that is busy with accomodation, we wouldn't hesitate to return to Vila Pitanga as not only is the accomodation to a really high standard and the garden wonderful, it was in a great location, near to restaurants and the beach but still quiet, but Denise really ensures you have a great stay and makes you feel so welcome and in a world of faceless hotels and such, it is this kind of service provides you with those all important and irreplaceable happy memories. So thanks Denise! We hope it won't be too long before we return!

To anyone considering a stay in Buzios we would highly recommend David's restaurant (the 'seafood in a rock' is fabbbulous!

I also went scuba diving which I really enjoyed but would say it's probably better for the more experienced diver, not because of the conditions, which are easy, but a little bit for the lack of instruction/information. The guys were really friendly and I saw some cool stuff, but if you are a nervous diver you might be unsettled by being put in your gear and off you go! Don't let this put you off entirely though, I saw lots of turtles, morays, lizard fish, stone fish, octopus etc so nice stuff!

We also hired a buggy, a few words on this, just get a new one if you can as the old ones can be hard to drive and a touch scary!

We loved Ferradura beach nearest to Pitanga as it was not touristy and pretty quiet but we tried Geriba and also some really pretty ones around the peninsula, you need to have transport to get to these really though, so it's worth having a buggy for at least 24 hours.

All in all we had a great time!
Final recommendation would be HIGH factor sunscreen! It is hot, hot, hot! And some of the beaches have no natural shade so you end up paying abit for a parasol etc
Another reason why the shady oasis of Vila Pitanga garden was so welcome!

My wife and I stayed at the Vila Pitanga in Buzios for 4 days in November following a 3 day stay in Rio which had been both exiting and exhausting. Both the peninsula and the accommodation lived up to our expectations and provided a relaxing break in an idyllic setting.

Denise the owner of the Pitanga was very friendly and helpful from the start and obviously takes pride in providing an excellent service without being overbearing. We particularly appreciated the fact that on our final day she allowed us use of our room after check out time due to our late flight home. This was at no extra charge.

The pousada has a very pleasant pool area and all rooms have a balcony and hammocks. Breakfast was buffet style (continental) and scrambed eggs were also freshly made on request.

The town centre was about 10 minutes walk and was charming and easy to navigate. Most of the beaches are within walikng distance from the pousada but you can always go on a bus tour which leaves from the Bardot statue.

There are many good restaurants in the town, we found Boom ,which was a self service style particularly good value. We would also recommend Don Juan which has a live tango show every Tuesday. Our favourite bar was Kave bar which serves a wide range of caipirinhas. The Brazilian owner loves English Rock music, in fact one of the bar staff even looks looks like Keith Richards!

The best banks to withdaw money from to the left of McDonalds (there are 3 close by) just remember to select the credit card option even if you use a debit card

To sum up we would definitely recommend the Vila Pitanga for a relaxing break, particularly after the bustle of Rio.
