The location of this hotel is excellent as it is almost mid-point of Copacabana beach which is just across the road. The hotel staff at reception were amazingly helpful, they helped us find places, book tours and permitted us a late check out. The breakfast was extensive and we particularly enjoyed a glass of champagne each morning. We had a sea view which was terrific as it was like watching a moving picture with all the activities on the beach and in the sea. The views from the pool on the roof are great but the pool itself is small and the gym space and equipment is a little limited. All in all though, we had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and would definitely recommend it to others.
