The service , the room, the staff, the breakfast. It was all amazing. The service on the beach was excellent. We had a wonderful view of the sea and Christ the redeemer. I hope to come back again soon. All in all a perfect holiday

If you really want a better location then you'd probably need to camp on Copacabana itself but then your view would be a little bit rubbish, so I'd recommend this place! A fantastic rooftop pool and bar, great buffet breakfast, clean and relatively spacious rooms. This is the place you need to be!

We stayed at Porto Bay for two nights before beginning a tour of the Pantanal. The second night had been arranged by our travel company, but we hoped not to have to change rooms due to the booking arrangements. We arrived very early in the morning, and the front desk staff made sure we had our room immediately and could... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our month long visit to Brazil. We arrived late from Sao Paolo and check in was smooth with no problems or fuss. The staff were very welcoming and said we could have our welcome glass of prosecco the next day which was a nice touch. We booked... More

This is a great hotel. Don't be put off by the look from outside which is rather dated. Positives - location, amazing bar and pool on the roof top, brilliant views of Copacabana beach and Christ The Redeemer, friendly and very helpful staff, excellent breakfast. Negatives - whilst the rooms are clean, ours was a little clinical. No finishing touches.... More

Spent four days here after a sixteen day trip to Pantanal and Alta Floresta. Ideal place to relax. Right on the beach, great if you enjoy early morning walks by the sea. Extensive choice at breakfast - if scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and fizz are your thing, then this is the place for you. We ate both in the... More

We stayed here as a family. The welcome at the reception desk was very pleasant and smooth. We were also offered a glass of bubbles. Which was very good after a long trip. The rooms were clean, spacious. The roof top bar and pool are great and nice food and drinks are served. Off course one has to drink caipirinha.... More

We had a wonderful stay at Porto Bay. From our room we could see the beach AND Christ the Redeemer. On the beach they had chairs and towels for us and even a guy making drinks - which were super yummy and not expensive.This hotel has a very helpful staff.

Lovely hotel, the staff were very accommodating especially when we were most upset to find that they closed the rooftop pool for the duration of our stay which was one of the things we were most looking forward to as neither of us are beach people, and the views from it were amazing, however they do have a beach service...

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
