This is the best hotel on Copacabana beach! The location is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good air conditioning. The views from your room and the rooftop pool are stunning. The breakfast buffet is extensive and the food at the hotel’s restaurants is very good. However, what really sets this hotel apart from others is the kind, friendly and top tier service they provide. I’m a repeat visitor and I have always been greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome. Shout out to Jose, Carlos, Lydia, Renato and Sasha!! Thanks for another enjoyable stay in Rio.

I stayed here for 4 nights on my first visit to Rio. I have stayed at PortoBay before in Madeira and so felt comfortable with the brand and what I could expect. - Location: located at a nice part of the bay with some amazing views of the beach. The hotel has chairs and towels available for the beach too. - Rooms; we had initially booked a Superior Room with a partial side sea view. We enquired about a room upgrade and it was definitely worth it… fantastic panoramic views of Copacabana. The initial room was a bit narrow and we felt caged in, I think the upgrade is worth considering. The rooms can feel a bit dated and the bathrooms not the usual 4* plus standard but I think this has been common across the hotels in Brazil. They all have the basic amenities needed. - Restaurants and Bar: breakfast is lovely with attentive waiters and a good mix with something for everyone. The food at the Pool Bar was lovely and the staff so very accommodating. Great drinks and worth watching the music session. It’s nice and lively. Unfortunately we didn’t see much sun on our visit but I am sure the sunset will be amazing. - Pool: although we didn’t get to use is, lovely pool and plenty of chairs. - Hotel services and staff: We booked our tours with the hotel and it was super efficient and a tour I would recommend (the express one). Sasha at the desk was very accommodating and even helped move the tour out as it was raining a lot on the original planned date. The staff are great and helpful. I return in a day for the last part of my trip to Brazil and am glad I picked a hotel that I am pleased to go back to.

The location is great but at the same time a bit noisy from the road and the people walking by but not terrible. The breakfast is amazing with homemade cake and jam. The room is spacious and the bed is massive, pillows could be better. Nice bar and pool on the roof top with amazing view. An extra thanks goes to Sascha that has been looking after us and suggesting good restaurants

A great positioned hotel with roof top swimming pool and bar overlooking Copacabana beach, with views of Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was excellent and replenished regularly. As the hotel is right on the sea front, expect a little noise from people outside enjoying themselves!

We had a room 1402 with a balcony overlooking the beach. It was fantastic! Great location. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Rooftop pool was great to sit by after a busy day of sightseeing. View of Christ the Redeemer when it wasn’t in clouds! Only downside is the lack of plugs by the bed to charge the phone. Plus there is a dressing table but no mirror - very annoying as you have to use bathroom. Overall a great place to stay.

The hotel was part of our group tour. They did a great job. Everyone was very helpful. Across the street from Copacabana. Great location. Rooms are different. Our shower was a little hard to get into because you had to step over a large tub.

Really nice midsized hotel right across the street from Copacabana Beach. We could watch the happenings on the beach from our veranda in our room. It would be a perfect place for lunch or dinner when the weather is a little cooler. It was very comfortable and well maintained. The small restaurant/bar at the roof top pool was a good place to grab a drink and something light to eat. Service and food were very good and the views were gorgeous. We had dinner at the main restaurant the evening we arrived. It was fairly empty when we arrived (which made us a little leery) but the food was excellent, and the service was too. I would encourage more guests to give it a try. Prices are quite reasonable for the quality of food delivered. The views of Copacabana Beach all lighted up at night was a treat. A buffet breakfast was served in the main restaurant each morning. It was very good with many choices of both cold and hot items. The staff was very attentive and made sure tables were cleared promptly, patrons seated quickly, and drinks brought to the table soon after being seated. Great location, nice rooms, excellent food, and quality staff made our stay very satisfying.
