Across the street from the beautiful but remote Barra beach, this hotel is a favorite of business people who attend conventions next door. It is quite functional and convenient, with the added value of the beach access for a bit of fun and relaxation. There is a rooftop pool, and bar, and gym, another bar at the lobby, and a huge restaurant on the main floor, which should be broken up into smaller spaces to make it more attractive and less institutional.

Good hotel? Yes. Five star, as claimed, no: the description received.... “This property is 2 minutes walk from the beach. This 5-star oceanfront Hotel offers luxurious accommodations overlooking Rio's trendy Tijuca Beach. It features a panoramic rooftop pool with cocktail bar, modern gym and hot tub, and fine gourmet restaurant. The lavish rooms at Windsor Barra Hotel have comfortable seating areas. All feature air conditioning and a satellite TV and some offer stunning ocean views and a spa bath.....” However, even though there was silver service in the restaurant, it did not compensate for having neither bedside table nor lamp on one side of the bed (a chair as a substitute was not good enough). The one bedside lamp provided was not connected, and the clock radio was not working. On investigation, both pins on the plug had previously been damaged: snapped at the base. Plus ‘quiet’ could not be a word to describe the air conditioning unit. “Lavish”? Not a great start at reception on arrival either: my enquiry in English regarding tours led to my being given material in Portuguese (despite having provided my non-Portuguese passport at check-in). Not too much focus there. Over the days of the visit, however, staff generally tried hard ie courteous, well presented, and helpful (notably in the hotel bar, opposite the restaurant). The problem is the supremos are charging rates to match their marketing and not delivering . Incidentally, I was attending a conference but booked independently. I’ve heard it said preference is given to big organisations (and the rest get the scraps). I don’t know. Bottom line here is the basic flaws are unacceptable for the claimed five stars - implies perfection, there’s nowhere else to go. Great city, great stay in Rio, hotel didn’t match up.

Second time I’ve stayed here and the room this time was much better. There’s been a refurb since my last visit and the room was vastly improved and much more modern than my previous stay. The food in the restaurant was excellent again this year. I was here in business but this hotel would make a great holiday spot as it’s a stone throw from the beach and in a nicer/safer part of Rio. Be careful if you are out and about though as there are still muggings going in around the whole of Rio.

I stayed five days at this beach-front hotel. The location is great if you want to go to the beach (20 Km long) and shop at the various nearby malls. However the hotel is far from the city center, Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon. The room was large and comfortable. The furnishings are good, but need a refurbishment soon. The cleanliness was outstanding. Breakfast was very good although the room is somewhat impersonal. Front desk service was efficient and helpful, but smiles were few and far between. Security seem to be a high priority because there were several refrigerator-size guys guarding the lobby. I enjoyed the stay and will come back in the future.

The hotel is all amazing, but I had a problem with the air conditioning and it was solved quickly, when they put me in another room. The breakfast is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. In the pool the employee Marcelo is one of the most efficient and kind. BUT where is the straw? Windsor is a big hotel chain and they have no straw?! Even the paper one?! Unecceptable! The rest all is great!
