Positives: The location of the hotel on Copacabana Beach is perfect & relatively safe for Brazil. The staff were excellent on the whole.

Good location, awesome rooms, the hotel is pretty and it's very clean as well. The breakfast is soooo good. I would definitely stay there again and recommend this hotel. Try to get the Deluxe room with seaview, worth every single dollar! The view from the pool is pretty as well with a nice little pool and bar. The caipirinhas are... More

This was our first stop in our first trip to Brazil. Stayed for 4 nights during the off-season (second week of June). The hotel's location is amazing, roughly right in the middle of Avenida Atlantica. Although we had a partial ocean view, it was more than sufficient for us. The room was very clean with no issues to complain of.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights June 2015. Had a very comfortable stay.breakfast buffet was good. Location was great- right on the Copacabana beach. They provide towels and chair to lounge on the beach. Good restaurants nearby. Rented bikes and rode to Ipanema beach and the Rodreigo Logoa. Isabella at the reception was awesome.

We stayed here for 2 nights to finish off our travels. It is in an excellent location, facing right on to Copacabana beach. Restaurants, supermarkets and bars are all within walking distance. Also from walking along the promenade Porto Bay definitely seemed to be one of the most modern looking hotels in the area. There is a roof top pool... More

We checked in at midnight and we found the toilet overflowing. Manager Francesca immediately upgraded our room at no cost and spent the rest of our trip making sure we were happy. Excellent service, location and buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

The staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient. Upon arrival, you will be served a glass of sparkling wine....what could be better as a welcoming ceremony to Copacabana. The rooms are modern and big and well air-conditioned. So you are sure to have a good sleep. Breakfast buffet is rich and the staff is very helpful to move you to... More

Very good. Service excellent. Staff attentive. View of beach. Lovely location. Not to pricey. Would recommend strongly. Bar on tiff serves good view and solid drink as well as a pool. Certainly better than many on the Copa.
