Stayed at the Pestana Rio Atlantica at the end of April and had a fantastic time! Great location right on the beach and close to the amenities, decent sized rooms,well specced, and very helpful staff (thanks Luciana!) Roof top bar overlooking the beach is amazing and is pretty popular at the weekends, can't wait to go back!

Picked the Pestana as it was the best option from our company's list of approved hotels (based on Trip Advisor ranking). Was a bit worried after reading some of the comments but in the end the hotel really was pretty good. The room was fine - good size, clean, everything worked and didn't smell bad. The city view I had... More

Good hotel, great location with nice staff. It has a nice rooftop bar and a decent if unspectacular breakfast. The shower in my room was excellent and very large. It was overpriced but this is Rio and the reality there.

The hotel has a very good location since it´s in front of the beach. It has a very decent beach service providing you chairs, towels, etc. You are also walking distance from Ipanema & Leblon. It´s a very big hotel so expect to have delay in the elevator and have breakfast with a lot of people, it´s not a boutique... More

I travel very regularly to on business and I only stay at the Pestana Rio hotel. The hotel is well situated on Copacabana beach and is one of high quality. However, for me, primarily it is the staff and the level of customer service that is provided to me on every stay. Luciana Meda, and her staff at the hotel,... More

I was offered having my breakfast in the roof top bar. The location of the hotel is execellent. The room I stayed in was very good. The swimming pool on the roof along with the view on Copacabana is outstanding. Next time I will travel to RJ I will stay in Pestana again.

I sit in my room in the Pestana right now listening to the Brazilian Quiz show on the TV of the room next door. My enjoyment of the programme is only spoiled by the shouting of the people. The walls are VERY thin. The room quality is low, it is tired and badly needs a refurb. There was a large... More
