Good hotel. The breakfast is excelent and the view is amazing at higher floors. I have to congratulate the crew, they are all very polite and gracious. The rooms are comfortable with good beds. I just have one complaint: analogic channels of cable TV.

I stayed several times in the Tropical Barra Hotel during business meetings in 2014. I can recommend the hotel with regard to the rooms, but especially because of the location. I always enjoyed a nice view of the beach from the rooms I have been assigned to. The breakfast was ok, but as I think that Germans have special expectations... More

Stayed here with British diving team for a training camp. Rooms are good size, views from our room was excellent. We had both beach and mountain view. The hotel is right on the beach and Barra de Tijuca is a nice area. At no point I ever felt unsafe during the day or night. It has nice little restaurants around... More

Good hotel, comfortable room, reasonably priced restaurant, free wifi and great location. It is right by the beach in one of the safest areas in Rio, I felt safe walking in the neighbourhood by day and night. Good for seafront walks on the long promenade, and convenient for local bars, restaurants and shops.

BUT 1) Air conditioner (very small window type) broken 2 days 2) Cable TV broken already 2 days (they say because of bad weather) 3) Telephone had no tone ... follow the cable and sure enough it was...

This hotel situated in the end of the beach of Barra de Tijuca is a fair hotel, but unless Brazil uses a 7 star system for grading, the hotel seems to have at least 1-2 stars too much. By international standard I would give it a VERY strong 2 or possible a weak three. Negative side is the rooms. Small... More
