Me and my boyfriend stayed there for 2 days and we enjoyed. The hotel in general has a beautiful design and it's clean, bed and pillow comfortable, we had the sea view room. Staff was very friendly but then I speak Portuguese so I found them very helpful and polite. The food on the pool bar was very good and quite cheap, good big portions. There's not enough lounges by the pool so get there early if you want to sunbath. Copacabana beach is lovely and very cheap but it's not the best beach, that area is mid class so don't expect to see really nice restaurants, bars, shops etc Ipanema is a high class area with a lots of options to go out but it's quite expensive.
The breakfast wasn't great, not much option on hot food, the 2 days I ate there it was only eggs and sausage as hot food.
I still recommend this hotel as its lovely but one down side is the lift that's very slow and one was broken for the entire length of my stay, so many times I had to wait over 10min to get in the lift.
