Charming and homely hotel with a magnificent view and great location. Would definitely recommend it! A friend and I are staying here after the hustle and bustle of Rio and it is the perfect relaxed ending to an amazing trip to South America.

I stayed there for 3 nights in Feb14 and had a great stay. The rooms are big, the view from the balcony is awesome. The owners are very nice and helpful. The Pousade lies directly at the port and has a restaurant with great food.

the service is excellent and good location, but the room is tiny. Feel uncomfortable in the room, and the whole unit is out of date... it was very noisy at night due to the bar accross the street.... will not stay there if return to Buzio and can't recommend for friends and family.

We booked a sea view room for a weekend in November. This is a Pousada not a hotel.This means that you are warmly greeted by the owners Sylvie and Francis. You get a sea view room with a hammock to relax in and watch the world go by and an excellent breakfast in the morning with friendly advice on what...

I stayed at the Pousada for a couple of days and I had a very nice experience. The location is very strategic and easy to go every where in Búzios, the beaches, Rua das Pedras, the boat trips, etc. The bedrooms are beautiful very neat and clean, they have cleaning room service every day. Francis and Sylvia are really kind,...

I will begin with stating the Sylvia and Francis made our stay feel more like being at a friend's home rather than a strangers resort. From the moment of arrival, we were greeted with a smile and enthusiasm to share their delightful treasure in Buzios. They shared stories of how L'Escale came to be and hopes for the future. Happy...

My husband and I loved being in Buzios but the Pousada L'Escale was very disappointing. I will start with the positives - Frances and Sylvia were extremely kind and a pleasure to be around. The breakfast was not your typical breakfast - it was hearty and delicious! Here's where things get bad - the room was very small and cramped....

From the moment you book you'll feel welcomed by the lovely owners of this sweet little property (who speak four languages - and sometimes a mixture of all of them at the same time!). It is literally in the best location: an easy walk in the the busy centre, but far enough away that you can sleep peacefully and relax...

Nice place, best posible location, delicious food, friendly and helpful owners. We would stay there again when back to Buzios. (ok.. we realize we have to write a minimum of 200 characters for this review to be processed so we will add that..) nice view, quiet lovely town, even Brigidte Bardot is near by. Karen and Marcelo

We stayed there for 3 nights and it really added a plus to our stay as it is really beautiful, cosy, clean and in a great location. The owners, Sylvia and Frances, are genuinelly kind and helpful and welcoming. It's close to the centre, to the shops, to the best beaches and promenada. The only "not so good things" I...
