Once you get over the fact that Rio is an absolute rip-off and that you have to knock a star and a half off every hotel rating to get the "real" rating, then you just breathe!!!. And once I got over the shock (I bounced around a few hotels first before sucking up the price and staying here) - I loved it. I felt so much better. The rooms are soooo nice! so light and clean and comfortable. I was so happy in my room! and the staff are amazing. I never wanted for anything. Everyone was so lovely and helpful and sweet - whether to help with beach things or to help me print things out for work, or advice on where to go. I thought the food was good and about in line with the restaurants nearby. The location is awesome if you want to be on the beach with the million other people, and it's a nice stroll around over-priced and normal priced shops, and then the open arts market and subway is nearby too. The lake is also walkable. I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else in Rio. I have done.. and this was by far the closest to a four star hotel in Rio that I have found. But yeah - the pool lol.. you won't be doing laps... it's like the photos show. I loved this hotel.
