Many international hotels of above average quality are similar--the rooms, the services, the amenities, the rates, even the turned down covers and chocolates on the bed at night. In my mind what makes the difference are location and the people who work at the hotel. Porto Bay has location covered--it's one of the most beautiful beach areas in the world... More

Well located and in a very good condition. Excellent quality and dedicated attention for all details by the staff. Sympathy, warmth and enfasis to make our stay unforgettable. We celebrate my 50th birthday and I will remember for ever their dedication to make it unique.

This beautiful Hotel overlooks Copacabana Beach, the hotel is clean and roomy with a very nice view of Christ the Redeemer from the rooftop pool. The staff are super friendly and always willing to assist you, particularly the waiting staff at breakfast.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of a group tour. Incredible views from hotel room of Copacabana, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf. One of the best breakfast experiences I've ever had, including champagne!! So much fresh fruit and general choice. Good table service generally, although less so at the weekends. Great views from roof top pool area. Friendly reception... More

We travelled with our 3 kids 12-10-8 years old. The hotel was great! The location on Copacabana was perfect. They were very helpful to help us organize a city tour that was very nice! The breakfast was amazing, our kids couldn't believe it! Even some sparkling wine! The restaurant for the dinner although very good but the athmosphere was a... More

Out of all the hotels we stayed in Copacabana, this is on top of the list. The hotel is very clean, rooms are spacious and the views are amazing. Breakfast was great and the we loved the roof top pool. The service also met our standards, it was a pleasent stay.

Amazing staff, big five star chain service standards but with boutique hotel charm, loved it from start to finish, hard to find a bad point. In the heart of Copacabana, a short walk away from Leme and main streets and businesses.
