This hotel is located directly on Copacabana Beach and that's the biggest selling point. The pool/lounge on the rooftop provide phenomenal views and are postcard worthy. The hotel provides lounge chairs, towels, and umbrellas right on the beach, which is a big plus. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The rooms are fine, but we had an issue with... More

The rooms were small, but modern and had balconies with a fantastic view of Copacabana. The staff, especially Sasha and Ramon, we're extremely helpful when I came to understanding where to go and helping to book excursions. My favorite part was the rooftop. Although the pool isn't really made for swimming, the view is astounding and the caipirinhas are even... More

This was a fabulous hotel. Beautifully located on the beachfront of copacabana beach with views on the rooftop pool of the top of sugarloaf mountain, you can see Christ the redeemer and a favela. The staff were all exceptional. Happy, helpful, thoughtful and spoke very good English. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

We stayed here for three nights as part of a touring holiday in Brazil. Excellent hotel. Spotlessly clean and with great facilities. Rooftop terrace and bar a bonus as views across Copacabana beach are stunning. Breakfast was fantastic too - so much choice and beautiful fresh fruit. Staff very friendly and helpful. We were nervous about staying in Rio, but... More

Porto Bay is located right across the street from Copacabana Beach and just one block away from the beautiful Copacabana Palace. We preferred the smaller hotel for a couple of reasons, price and service. The service and attention to you is 10 on a 10 scale. Price is very reasonable for what you get and the location.

The Porto Bay Rio hotel is about a third of the way along Copacabana beach, and easy to spot as it is dark brown when all its neighbours are white. The location is perfect for exploring anywhere in Rio, and there is an ATM in a bank just around the corner. The rooms are comfortable with great views over the... More
