This hotel is not far from the end of Ipanema beach in a quiet locale, with its own private beach (very valuable because the other beaches are very busy). Our room was probably a little dated but we had a nice view straight down Ipanema beach. The room itself had everything we needed and was functional, but probably not over... More

I stayed here for one night right after the Olympics. The hotel is very modern and beautiful. The pool area is fantastic and the views from my balcony were amazing. My room was very quiet and had all the expected amenities- coffee, mini bar, iron, full size hairdryer, etc. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us... More

Wildly underrated and understated on the Sheraton/SPG websites, this resort in Leblon is the only luxury hotel literally ON the beach (with no street between it and the sand). Secluded, with a feeling of exclusivity, it's a quick stroll down the hill to Ipanema, and is extremely well-maintained and safe. All staff speak good-to-excellent English, and are eager to assist...

I am an airline pilot with a major carrier. We our company pays for us to stay at several nice hotels around the world. I tend to rate them as ones I would be happy to pay to stay in and those I would not. The Sheraton Rio is a hotel I would be happy to pay to vacation in.

After the bad experience at Sheraton Barra, I was a little skeptical about this place. But i was proved so wrong. This place is amazing. Check was so smooth, was acknowledged for SPG status and upgraded to room at the front of the hotel. Rooms were clean and well maintained. The breakfast and lounge on the top floor are top... More

Well what I can say! Came here with work and had an amazing 2 night stay - it was unforgettable! First of all the scenery surrounding the hotel is beautiful, the views of the beach are amazing especially at sunset and sunrise and just to have the ocean breeze blowing on you was great.

With 272 hotels in Rio, the traveler has no shortage of options. For this traveler, however, I always stay at the Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort, which is in a great location between Barra da Tijuca and Ipanema Beach. It is a little secluded from the hustle & bustle of the beach area, although it has some excellent views... More

They should change the loud music by the pool. Once you get to Rio all you wanna hear is a nice bossa nova or an slow mood music and in this hotel there's always a loud Brazilian north style loud music by the pool, a big contrast with the amazing view and location for the hotel. Not classy at all,... More

What a wonderful place to stay for 8 days or more. Superb condition with friendly staff. Main employees speak English but room attendants very little. Far enough out of Rio to be away from crowds but close enough to walk. Amassing pool overlooks beach for two styles of swimming.
