Great location. Hardly any hotels along Copacabana or Ipanema have balconies.. Porto Bay has with spectacular views of the beach. Breakfast is good with a wide selection of fruits. The waiters are very attentive and friendly. the Roof top pool is a little small with a few beds so get there early if you intend to stay a while. They also serve snacks and drinks at the pool. You also get a great view of Copacabana and Christ the Redeemer.
We had a room on the top floor with a balcony facing Copacabana beach. Room is a decent size but the bathroom is tiny ! You can literally sit on the toilet and brush your teeth at the sink at the same time ! Lifts are also a real pain. They can only fit 6 people at a time and takes forever long to come .
I noticed most taxis did not know Porto Bay so best to carry hotel card or address if you intens to get a taxi back to the hotel.
Overall a good hotel to stay for location, view (if you get a balcony facing the beach) and good service, friendly staff.
