“Very nice and cozy hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

La Pitanga is beautiful and has perfect positioning, as it's close both to the amazing ferradura beach (if i remember the name correctly) and the city centre. Rooms are stylish and clean, and the breakfast was very tasty with fresh juice. And, of course, a very nice and friendly owner! We had an amazing weekend, thank you! :)

This pousada is great, great rooms, small, clean, A/C, Freezer, pool, garden.

The bets thing is its cost considering everything in Buzios is very expensive.

15Min walking distance to downtown and 10 min to Ferradura Beach. Dont miss taking the day trip to Arrial du Cabo....beautiful trip...

Vila Pitanga is OK, but not great. The owner is nice, but that alone doesn't make a great hotel.

Problems:

- The swimming pool sucks. A funky prefab fiberglass tub is not a real swimming pool.
- The rooms are small (especially downstairs).
- The walk to town is not terrible, but seems a bit too long coming home at night.
- Buy some new towels, please - the towels at the hotel feel like drying off with sandpaper.

Not an unpleasant place, but Tripadvisor's Choice? You must be kidding me. Not even close to what it needs to be to win an award. My advice -find a place with a nice rooms, a real pool and closer to town.

DSamis, Manager at Pousada Vila Pitanga, responded to this review, 17 February 2012
Adequate but not great." Fair enough. No problem here. However, the second part, which says: "WHO IS WRITING THESE REVIEWS?" This is not acceptable. It is offensive to our team and our fantastic real guests. All Vila Pitanga's excellent reviews are authentic. We are very grateful to our 2011 and 2012 prizes and very happy to carry on providing a Good Service and the Best Price.
Thanks. Best Regards, Denise

Was staying at Vila Pitanga for 3 days - and had an amazing stay there. Denise is making a huge difference by being extremely service-minded. She recommended me great local restaurants to go to and even helped me out with booking and picking up a ticket for the bus to Rio. Rooms very nice & clean and the atmosphere in the lobby and at breakfast was great. I can highly recommend both couples and singles to stay at Villa Pitanta. Best regards, Ole (from Denmark)

Excellent B&B in Buzios! The rooms are very clean, and the breakfast is really delicious. Denise (the owner) is a fantastic person, always satisfing the guests' needs. In this place I feel like home. My home in the most charming citiy in Brazil, with so many marvelous beaches and romantic restaurants at a walking distance! Wow!

My partner and I spent 11 nights at this lovely place over XMAS 2011. Denise the owner was very friendly and helpful prior to our arrival and once we arrived nothing changed.ALL the 'girls' who worked at the Pousada were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great breakfast which was served from 8am in a light and airy room and all the people staying while we were there were friendly and engaging. Our room was fine, everything you needed for a chilled out holiday in the sun. The location of the Pousada is ideal for those wanting to explore the whole area of Buzios and we loved the local beach which was about 10 mins walk away. There was a tranquil feel to the place which we enjoyed given that we had just spent 5 days in Rio.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor, you get more privacy and even better views!!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in Vila Pitanga in December and wished we planned for a longer stay. The pousada is extremely clean and tastefully decorated up on a small hill in a safe residential neighborhood about 15 minutes walking to the main center Rua das Pedras. It's also about a 10 minute walk (in opposite direction) to Ferradura beach, our favorite beach on Buzios. If you choose to take a taxi to and from town, the cost is $R15 which is about $USD8. Once you walk to the main street (5 mins), you can take local vans that zoom up and down Buzios to visit some of the 15+ beaches. The cost for the public van is $R2.
The breakfast consists of fresh fruits, cereal, yoguart, cake, toast, cold cuts, cheese andmade-to-order eggs, and of course tea and coffee. The freshly squeezed OJ is delicious!

Denise the owner, like everyone else mentioned, is warm, friendly and super helpful. The two restaurants she recommended were the best seafood places (O'Barco and David's Restaurant) we had in both Buzios and Rio. She even helped us book the bus transfer from Rio Int. airport to Buzios which was a big help since private car hire was expensive and other small van agencies were hard to reach if you didn't speak portuguese. On the 2nd day of our trip, we discovered our ATM card numbers have been stolen and Denise stayed late with us to help us call our bank in the US. She truly strives to provide the best service and homey environment for her guests.

Thank you Denise for such a wonderful vacation in Buzios, we loved it and hope to stay at your pousada again!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have hammocks.
