Room with full ocean view was great. Couldn't ask for a better location. Front desk staff were all super friendly and helpful, especially Alan. They bent over backwards to assist us... their efforts really added to our enjoyment of the city. Roof deck with swimming pool has an even more expansive panoramic view. Would definitely stay there again!

The beach was just across from the hotel and the breakfast was very good. There is a supermarket close to the hotel and several places around to eat. From the top floor, the view was excellent and the Christ Redeemer was visible.

We had 3 nights in this well located hotel right on the beach at Copacabana. Rooms are a good size and the rooftop swimming pool and bar give spectacular views. Breakfasts were excellent. The staff were helpful and made a room change we requested easy. The hotel was conducting some noisy renovating/rebuilding close to our original room and with less... More

We stayed in this hotel for 10 nights in July 2015 but would’ve stayed longer if we had more time. The location is great. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and had a very comfortable bed. However for me the views from the balcony are what made it so unique. We had an amazing view of Chris the redeemer and... More

Our 10 day trip to Brazil was punctuated by a 4 night stay at Porto Bay. Francesca and Isabella made the experience extra special by providing great tips on shopping, dining and transportation. Our room was excellent with an amazing view of Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain from right outside our terrace door! We really enjoyed the rooftop pool... More

Went to the Porto bay from 13th to 16th of July and was very pleasantly surprised! The building itself is unique and very beautiful. Hostesses were all very smiley and spoke English fluently (which can seem like a "detail" but English is not very spoken in Rio...). We had a superior room giving a lateral view on the beach. The...

This hotel was excellent. The staff was amazing. Franchesca, Isabella and Carmen were extraordinary. My wife, son and I spent 4 days here and did not want to leave. From the moment we got to the hotel they directed us to a small cafe around the corner to get lunch. The rooms were nice, clean, and bright. The view from... More

The hotel is located in the perfect location on copacabana beach. Directly across from the beach where they provide towels and beach chairs for their guest. The rooftop pool has a spectacular view of Christ the redeemer from the deck. The waiter was superb he brought fruit and drinks out consistently and adjusted our umbrellas and chairs to remove the...
