we were looking for something right on the beach that wouldn't break the bank....especially before new years as most places in rio have 4 night minimums and triple price increases. perfect location, attentive staff (surprised at how many spoke some english). breakfast buffet every morning was way above expectations. rooftop pool was small but great view and enough chairs and tables to go around (heat wave made the beach a better option but the shade up on the roof was nice too) also nice location (few blocks from subway to ipanema) rooms nothing special but clean and well kept. only side note is the elevator/key system was frustrating at times as magnetic strips worked sporadically. free wifi in lobby and roof top was nice bonus too!
