“I like this hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Location was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend it. There is a mall about two or three blocks from the hotel and the supermarket is one away. I honestly cannot think of a negative thing to write about this hotel.

Room Tip: Check out the view from the last floor, it is worth it!

We have stayed here on the week of Feb 5-Feb 13. the rooms are large, nicely appointed, comfortable, immaculately clean. breakfast is plentiful. beach chairs are complimentary. Service excellent. everyone speaks English. information desk can answer any question. great security everywhere.
the hotel is situated on the Eastern tip of the Copacabana beach. We mostly used the Yellow cabs to get around as the subway was about 8 blocks away. Taxi to Ipanema ranges R12-R14. Taxi to airport is about R 120. There are a lot of good restaurants in 10-15 min. walking distance Alfaia (Portuguese style cod fish), Churrascaria Palace (BBQ), Amir (Lebanese). in general we found food portions to be on the large side.
the only downside for which i didnt give this hotel a 5 star is the Internet. we bought the internet package as we do on all our traveling (R35 per day). the internet service is not consistent, it disconnects every few minutes and throws you back to the confirmation page. No Wifi reception in the room. We have complained about it and had a technician come and look at the router which was directly outside our room, but he didnt do much.

The Windsor Atlantica, located just across the street from the legendary Copacabana Beach, pampered us during our recent visit to Rio de Janeiro. Highlights included the spectacular view of the beach and Sugarloaf Mountain from our 17th floor room, good air conditioning that was much appreciated in the city's heat wave during our stay, and wonderful service from everyone on the staff, but especially the concierge and several of the servers in the dining room. The breakfast buffet, included in the price of the room, was very good as noted in other reviews, especially the selection of fresh fruits and the eggs to order station. The hotel provides chairs and umbrellas for guests to use on the beach and also has two swimming pools. We especially enjoyed relaxing by the fourth floor pool. I would heartily recommend the Windsor Atlantica as a great base from which to explore all Rio has to offer.

We stayed here 4 nights before going on a South America cruise . This hotel is across the copa cabana beach it is always packed outside this area but it never affected us . The surrounding areas is full of restaurants and the subway is a few blocks away . Taxis are widely available and very inexpensive .
The hotel is beautiful it is a 5 star hotel meaning that everything is expensive ! We did not eat in their restaurants because there are so many we wanted to try around the area .
There is a bar on the main floor that we did use and had lots of caipirinhas ! The cost is 10 US dollars per drink . The breakfast is included and it's by far the best breakfast we have ever had . Everything you could think of was there , meats , fruits, juices , hot foods incredible in the us this would cost at least 30 dollars per person in this type of hotel . So keep this in mind when you consider the nightly hotel charge. The rooms are nice and clean, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom is nice with only a shower. They have free internet but also offer faster internet for 35 dollars a day . There is lots to do in Brazil it is hot hot hot lots of places even to eat dinner do not have air condition . The hotel does not change currency and they do not accept dollars.the outlets in the hotel fits the USA but reads 127 volt . They also have their own outlet. We loved the hotel and would stay there again for sure ! Bring light clothing if you go in the summer ! Enjoy !!!

As I was traveling for work I was not one of the lucky travelers staying here to enjoy the beach and the pool however can say that the proximity to the beach makes the views from the hotel remarkable. The Hotel Windsor Atlantica is perfectly situated and offers good service and a sense of security.

I stayed on this hotel for business during a business trip to Rio de Janeiro. I had a room at the upper floors with a nice view to Leme beach. Room was good but not a five star standard.

The swimming pool at the top has stunning views of Leme and Copacabana.

Breakfast was excellent.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed at the Windsor Atlantica on our arrival after a very long flight from Australia. Unfortunately our luggage had been lost on the way. The concierge staff could not have been more helpful. The location of the hotel is great just opposite the beach, the pool is great. The rooms are a bit sparse but have a great view. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The only slight negative was they took a security deposit and processed it onto my credit card at double the expected daily rate for security deposits. It also took 10 days to drop off because I paid all extras in cash and our room had been prepaid before arrival. This was the only hotel throughout South America who insisted on doing this even though as all others were happy that our accommodation had been fully prepaid and were happy for any extras to be paid on checkout.

Room Tip: Watch out for the security deposit issue as it will block your credit card for up to a week
