Stayed at this hotel as part of a Brazil tour and couldn't have been in a better location. Across from the Copa Cabaña. The hotel has a small reception area and bar on the ground floor and check in was quick and efficient and always helpful. The rooms were of a good finish and a standard layout with large beds...

Great location with awesome view from the rooftop pool but it seems everyone that works at the hotel is a bit overwhelmed. No one seemed to "enjoy" being in the hospitality industry. I had an early morning flight and arranged for a wake up call but that never happened. Luckily, I set my own alarm.

Exceptional service, great location. We will definitely return. Complete breakfast included and excellent food at the pool both with amazing views of Copacabana beach. The waitstaff was extremely helpful and made our stay a one to remember. There is also a wonderful little cafe around the corner (La Fiducia) that has very good Italian dishes.

At times I give a five because, within its class it deserves a five, or because it's cheap or even because one staff member was so good I get a bit carried away. With Porto Bay there are no such caveats, this business is simply outstanding in all areas. So, the basics first. Great location, well designed rooms & spotlessly... More

We booked this hotel through Booking.com and got a great rate per stay, which included free breakfast. We arrived at the hotel around 8 am, but our check in was at noon or afternoon (can't remember exactly the check in time). We asked for an early check in. Thankfully, there was availability, but the room would be ready in 1.5... More

My wife and I stayed here 30 June-3 July in a room on 8th floor. The balcony had only a partial view of the beach which detracted from our stay. However we enjoyed the neighborhood, and being so close to the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable, quiet and relaxing. As others have stated, the breakfast is wonderful and... More

We booked our stay through Imagine Latin America. This is a first class hotel with great staff. The breakfast room on the 5th floor overlooking Copacabana beach was stunning and the breakfast was simply the best I've ever had. Nothing was too much trouble from the friendly welcome to the recommendations of fantastic restaurants.

We stayed here for a week and loved it. The room was spacious and comfortable with a huge bed and the shower was powerful (a bit too much as it leaked across the bathroom). Lots of choice at breakfast with very friendly and helpful waiters especially Carlos! The views from the roof terrace are amazing, you can see both Sugar... More

This hotel is of a very good standard but there just isn't that extra element that would have convinced me to give it 5 stars. Rooms are of a good standard as you would expect, breakfast is great and the staff are fine. Views from the rooftop pool are excellent but there are only around 18 sunbeds and so it... More
