Pousada Vila Pitanga
Ranked #27 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2010

This is simply the best pousada in Buzios. Great value for money. Best location just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Buzios, near all the beautiful beaches. The pousada is very very clean, lovely rooms which are cleaned thoroughly every day. and a very comfortable bed. Best rooms are on the upper floor with a hammock and a lovely view. The garden and the decorations in the pousada are just beautiful. Nice warm swimming pool which is cleaned every morning. Nice and tasty breakfast with lovely fresh orange juice and scrambled eggs (best ones Ii have eaten for a long time). Lovely fresh bread rolls . Denise is very helpful and a very nice person. Her staff are very friendly too. I will definitely be returning to Vila Pitanga. This is just the best pousada in Buzios and affordable too.

Vila Pitanga was awesome! It was just as described. Denise (the owner) was so friendly and helpful even before we arrived. She sent specific instructions and even a map for taxi drivers. Once we got there, she was available to us every time we had a question. She’s full of helpful tips about Buzios and where to go. She also knows a lot about the area and about day trips.

About 5 minutes after we arrived, we had an emergency. We had left our camera in the taxi from Rio. Luckily we had booked through our Rio hotel and so Denise was able to quickly find out who the driver was and call him. He came right back. It was great. We would have so sad to lose our Rio photos.

The pousada is gorgeous. It’s so well tended and taken care of. It’s up on a hill and has beautiful garden and view. The road is a dirt road and that was adventurous when it rained but we didn’t mind at all. It was a short walk to Rua das Pedras and all the banks, restaurants etc. We liked that it wasn’t right on the main strip. We enjoyed returning to our room in the afternoon to the sanctuary of the peaceful garden and taking a nap in the hammock and then going out to where the party was.

The rooms were comfortable. Shower was great!...hot and strong. Everything was clean. The pousada has a fast Internet connection in the lobby/breakfast area. In the afternoons, I would take my laptop to the garden area and sit at a small table outside and check my email sipping one of the beers from the mini-bar fridge in my room…lovely.

One of our favorite things was the breakfast. Delicious eggs made to order, fresh squeezed orange juice, strong, hot Brazilian coffee, cheese, ham, fruits and a homemade cake.

This is a great quality pousada. It was exactly what we wanted. If we return to Buzios, we wouldn’t look anywhere else. We’d reserve a room at the Vila Pitanga way in advance to make sure we could stay there.

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.
