I stayed here with work 4 times. Really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are really nice and the building is beautifully decorated. The buffet breakfast is also one of the best I have with a huge selection of food and fresh fruit etc. The pool area is also gorgeous and very tropical. There is a lovely restaurant that the hotel...

I stay at this hotel very often. This hotel has has an excellent location and many great things. However, it could achieve much higher level with a few tweaks and (not a simple tweak) a good re-freshening of the rooms. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, particularly the front-desk and F&B. The breakfast is very good, the food selection... More

Concierge services = Very Good ! About Location, Breakfast, Parking, Pool and Beach Services were Great. For the room and internal areas, the perception is for old appearance care condition with mold aspects in the carpet, and in the bathroom and room internal area. Good but can be improved !

The rooms are massive, like mini suites! Bedroom is corned off with a separate kitchenette and living area with microwave. Large balcony with views of the sea. The room smelt a bit musty and felt a bit damp- but that's most likely due to people leaving the balcony doors open and the sea air getting in - not much to... More

The room had lovely large comfy beds and a balcony with a great sea view. Decor is slightly dated and our shower head was broken and the water pressure was slightly intense! Great breakfast selection with fresh omelettes and eggs made to order. Very helpful concierge service, good wifi and lovely pool area. Just over the road from the beach... More

This is the 3rd time that I've stayed at this property. First when it was the Sheraton Barra, then when it was the Radisson Barra - and now when it's back to being the Sheraton Barra. In Rio, you tend to select your hotel based on where you need to be since the traffic situation makes getting across town a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and it's a pretty good hotel. Right on the beach few minutes walk to some shops and beach shacks which are great for a burger or a caipirinha and cheap! The hotel itself is divided into 2 blocks hotel rooms on one side and residences on the other. The rooms are like mini apartments... More

I stayed here for the business part of my trip to Rio. The rooms are nice and clean. The ocean view is spectacular. The hotel is a bit far from shops and restaurants, so you must take a taxi everywhere.

The location is great, directly at the wonderful beach of Barra da Tijuca. The area is very safe & quite at night. A few Restaurants and Bars are near by. Busses to Rio sights & Copacabana leave every couple of minutes & take around half an hour. The bus stop is at front of the Hotel. The Hotel is very... More

First of all, nearly impossible to get there by taxi since they did not manage to somehow make it public that the hotel is now a Sheraton and not a Radisson anymore. That is the first touch and taste of a really professional and dedicated management during this transition phase. Check-in: very slow and lengthy even though all data was... More
