If your a holiday maker, its OK with a great pool area on the roof and bar . service is a bit shoddy and forgetful and English is not easily understood first time, so double check your orders. If your on a business trip like i was, then you may be a bit disappointed with the room and facilities. Breakfast... More

First impressions are formed at check-in. After an exhausting journey, I present the customary credit card and picture ID in support of a reservation made 4 months ago. Tthe clerk hands my spouse and me a registration form which is a poorly designed market research questionnaire. Do they really have to know where I am coming from, where I am... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel is right on the Copacabana beach,so you get awesome views of the coastline as well the surrounding mountains. Perfect getaway for beach-bums! Room was ok -sized with a double-sized bed. Bathroom was on the smaller side but not tight. Pool area was great and so was the buffet breakfast with many types of local... More

We chose this hotel after extensive research on hotels in Rio plus it is the sister hotel to the Cliff Bay hotel in Madeira, where my family have had fantastic stays for many years and Porto Bay Rio certainly did not disappoint. Not a beautiful hotel from the outside but once inside it has a sophisticated and contempory feel. Reception... More

We stayed at the Porto Bay twice, at the beginning and end of our holiday in Brazil and both times we just loved the place, especially the pool bar lounge at the top of the hotel...the views were stunning. The breakfasts were second to none, excellent choice (and delicious pineapple!) Staff were very attentive and the location, right on Copocabana... More

The Porto Bay hotel is in a great location on Copacabana beach, a block away from the Copacabana Palace. We were upgraded, so had a very large corner room overlooking the beach, with a curved window along the whole outside wall. The bathroom was good, and everything was clean though a bit tired in parts. The pool area is lovely,... More
