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.

The Sheraton Hotel in Barra De Tujica was amazing! The whole strip looked like Miami. The beach was directly across the street. Shopping was in walking distance nearby. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast buffet was the best! I cannot wait to return to this wonderful new spot that we love!

The hotel is situated on Barra Beach, with a number of restaurants and other hotels nearby. Keep in mind that the main tourist attractions are relatively far away, a taxi ride to Copacabana or Ipanema took me about 25 minutes without traffic (and can take much longer at busy times). Barra Beach itself is a nice sandy beach, with a... More

This a large hotel with 300 hotel rooms. There are also 300 rooms privately owned on the other side of the hotel. The bedroom needs much modernisation. Carpet is very tired, the woodwork displays water damage. The bathroom could do with some modern touches. I didn't think the shower was particularly hot or powerful. On a a positive point, there...
