We recently had a '3rd honeymoon' and the hotel was great. The location was perfect, as you have your own 'private beach' and is also only about 2km from Ipanema. You can take the free shuttle from the hotel to city centre, or taxi/uber. We had access to the lounge on the 26th floor, so the views from the breakfast...

I had the opportunity to spend 22 days in Rio for work and was amazed at the hotels facilities and view provided to the city. It was amazing looking out my balcony and seeing the ocean so close and the vibe of the people of Brazil daily as they enjoyed the beaches below my balcony. Restaurants were excellent and provided...

The hotel is located near the beaches and has a magnificent view if you are lucky to get one of the rooms overlooking the bay. The front desk staff that handles our personnel is not the friendliest. The young lady that received us did not even say good morning but focused on asking more han 3 times for a sign...

It has one of nicest view of Rio. The staff and amenities are awesome, truly Sheraton. But the location is remote from the city center, you always need to take a taxi or use public transportation to get around. Walking is not an option. If you are going there for just a conference, then it's ok to stay there. In...

Really nice hotel, it depends which way you want to look at this hotel. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the direct main centre, bad from a perspective if you want to be in the middle of it all but good for peace and quiet. For me it was great, good quality hotel with large rooms and great...

The room is excellent , the hotel facilities including pool and prívate beach are similar to those top quality caribbean resorts. The only issue is that you are away from le blon beach and the activity around. During the day is a short walk, but at night I think is risky for Security reasons. However in a taxi or Uber...

Wow! American style just 11 minutes walk from Leblon. Incredible pools, 4 restaurants, 3 bars and an insane (almost private) beach makes this hotel number one option for a nice relaxing vacations. You can choose between the classic hotel bar or signature Javier de las Muelas Dri Martini Bar. French, Italian, Brazilian and Pizza restaurants. You can play tennis, basketball...
