This hotel worked out really well for us. I have stayed in Copacabana before and didn’t like it (I preferred Ipanema) but the Porto Bay was such a nice experience I may have to revise my opinion. We were greeted by the very friendly desk staff and given a welcome drink of sparkling wine. They were nice enough to allow us to check in about three hours early, which is huge after a long flight. The hotel is very stylish and our room had everything we needed, including a safe, which is very important in Brazil. English language TV stations were few and far between. I believe the fitness center was open 24 hours a day but I could be mistaken about that. In any event, it was open when we wanted it to be. There is a bar on the rooftop by the pool with amazing views. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The desk staff was very helpful and even called a club we wanted to go to for reservations. They also called to check on the status of our shuttle to Paraty. The Porto Bay is very conveniently located in Copacabana and it’s easy to catch a bus or cab. I would recommend trying the public buses - they are a lot cheaper than cabs and a lot of fun.
