The last time i was in Rio I stayed at the Copacabana Palace, and for $550 a night was treated like royalty. The bar was set high
I would give this hotel a 7/10, some aspects are better than CP, but many aren't, but it is a lot cheaper, so that's understandable.
The views around the poolside are great, probably one of the best in Rio, a lovely place to chill in the day and for sunset, after coming back from trips. The pool is SO small though, the photos are clever in disguising how small, think large jacuzzi and you're there
The rooms weren't made up until 4pm for 3 of the days of our 4 night stay, pretty unacceptable for a $320 a night hotel. But the room was nice, decent size and when cleaned, it was clean, tidy and comfortable, with a good side view of the beach
The reception area were helpful when needed, but very busy so often had to wait a while
The hallways on the floors are so dimly lit, you literally can't see a thing, and often the elevators are a 5 minute wait!
Overall, I would recommend, but it just has a few key details i'd like to see ironed out before I could make it a 4/5
