Regarding the 20th floor, the views of Cococabana beach are possibly unrivalled! The pool and bar up there are very modern and smart, clean & tidy. The staff are all very friendly and apart from the cleaners (which wasnt a problem) every had a good grasp of English. The breakfast is an amazing spread of food and the restaurant is... More

Booked to stay at the Porto Bay after staying at one of the hotels in the same chain in Madeira, which we were really happy with. This hotel itself is in a brilliant location only 2 buildings away from the Copacabana Palace in the middle of Copacabana beach. We got the hotel to provide our airport transfer for 160 reals...

I've just spent 3 nights at this hotel in triple room and I must say that I loved both the hotel and the location. It is centrally located right on Copacabana beach, with wonderful views both on Sugarloaf and Corcovado mountains. On the top floor there's a nice bar with pool and deckchairs, where you can relax after a full... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of a tour of Brazil - and it was an excellent start. The room was clean and comfortable with a small balcony from which we could see the sea and the 'Christ the Redeemer' statue (weather permitting!). The beds were comfortable enough for me, and the room had a safe for guest... More

We stayed here four nights while in Rio. I had noted all the very positive comments on Trip Advisor and I am happy to reiterate my own. The first positive is the staff. They do actually make you feel really welcome on arrival, including a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. All staff we had dealings with, from the front desk,... More

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights as part of a spectacular tour of South America with the company Journey Latin America. The room, a suite with a balcony overlooking the Copacobana beach, was spacious, clean and comfortable. The extensive buffet breakfast, taken in the restaurant with picture window views over the beach, is an excellent way to... More

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 terrace and pool has been recently refurbished and the view from there (and from the fitness club) is just amazing: panoramic view on Copacabana, sugar loaf and Corcovado.... More
