We started our 3 week tour of South America at the Porto Bay - superb location facing Copacabana Beach. Our room was a little tired and unfortunately directly above the kitchens so we were woken early each morning by the kitchen staff preparing breakfast. I would definitely ask for a room on the higher floors. Breakfast was brilliant - excellent choice and if you were lucky, could be eaten at a table overlooking Copacabana Beach. The roof top terrace and pool was small but why would you need anywhere bigger with the beach just opposite. The hotel has loungers/towels/parasols on the beach - staff there were very friendly and helpful. Our one and only major complaint was that the hotel charged for WiFi - WHO in 2013 charges for WiFi? We stayed in 12 different hotels whilst travelling across to Lima - some very small family hotels and other larger hotels. Wake up Porto Bay, charging for WiFi is tantamount to charging for loo paper!!!!!!!!!
