You always think that people exaggerate a lot on these tripadvisor reviews and maybe the hotel is not as bad. I did the same mistake and decided to stay here at Sheraton Barra. It was a terrible mistake. At check in there was not acknowledgement of the SPG status. Checked into the room only to find it flooded with water.... More

The Sheraton is hotel with a great reputation. I have been staying here since the upgrade and I like it. The rooms have terrific balconies which all have sea views. Breakfast is ok. If you do manage to stay here, I would recommend going across the road to the little beach bar and trying a Caipirinha! Yum👍

The hotel is quite large having two towers one is the hotel part the other apartments. Pro: Location just across the beach. The layout and the size of the rooms with a balcony is actually quite good, the room is some what separated in a living room style with small kitchenette and the bedroom side. The breakfast, lunch and dinner... More

For a Sheraton, it does not fullfil expectatives, for example cleaning is not adequate, View from the room was awesome, staff, although nice and kind, was not always in the mood. When checking out, i noticed a lot of items charged to room service that of course i did not take, the issue was solved a few minutes later, but... More

This is the worst hotel, in this category, we have ever stayed at. It is very old and not well maintained - we were told that Sheraton acquired it last year and is just starting work on it now?! The rooms are kept at a freezing cold temperature and are impossible to warm up. The room service is slow and... More

Nice hotel. Rooms were nice. Service was good. The hotel has their own pool in the back which is very nice, as well. But the best thing is the beach at Barra da Tijuca! Miles and miles of wide, sandy, expansive beach and a beautiful ocean. The beach is so big it is difficult for it to feel crowded, even... More

Best architecture at the beach front, by far and large. Rooms with balconys that allows the guest to see the sea. Wonderful room service but people do not feel constrained to stay inside of the hotel for most of the time. Several nice bars and restaurants in walking distance.

The hotel location is actually really nice, aside the long Barra boulevard. The hotel inside though is a bit different. The hotel rooms, which are situated in the left wing, are worn out. Many rooms are very damp and smelly, the bathroom pretty old and in general the whole wing is pretty worn out. Each room has its own little... More

I have had the misfortune of straying here for over three years. It has changed management and name several times but has not managed to solve the fundamental problem of the hotel - damp. After a stay here your clothes stink, everything feels slimy and the atmosphere is 'close'. I personally would avoid this hotel if I could.

Currently being refurbished. Needs it. Sad state in corridors and noise levels high. Bedrooms are in a sorry state. Damp and quite dirty. Not cleaned well... Beds damp. The food is great though!! Buffet is extensive and fresh. Pool is a nice area. Hotel opposite beach - all rooms have a good view. Staff are really lovely and friendly.
