“Nice hotel, good location but not a boutique hotel.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We spent 3 nights at Marina All Suits during our stay in Rio in December. Overall the hotel is good but there is definitely room for improvement.

The hotel is nicely located in Leblon overlooking the beach. Leblon is one of the safest and nicest areas in Rio, and especially if it's your first time there, this is the ideal location to move around and discover the city.

Our suit was spacious and overall comfortable, yet it felt a bit run down. The windows were not very clean, obfuscating the panoramic view and the shower head in the bathroom was rusty and old.

Breakfast was good, but we found that the service wasn't particularly friendly. The only time we wanted to have lunch at the hotel we were hurried out of the restaurant because a private event was taking place there.

Given the low standards in Rio I can see why this is considered a 4 star hotel, but if I compare Marina All Suits to many other 4 stars hotels around the world similarly priced, this is definitely inferior in quality.

Rio needs to step it up.

My family and I stayed here for 5 nights in late November and had a great experience. We took the advice from Trip Advisor and got a room ending in 01. We stayed in 1401 to be exact, and it was a great room. For a family, the extra space was great! Location can't be beat. We walked everywhere from here, and even at night, felt completely safe. I can't imagine a better location. Rooms were clean, service was excellent, and I loved my stay here.

We ended our trip with 1 night at Copacabana Palace, and I loved Copacabana Palace, but Marina All-Suites location is enough to rival Copacabana Palace for where I'd want to stay next time. I'd probably split my time between the two just because I loved the safely of Leblon and walking everywhere.

This hotel should be top 5 in Rio. I can't figure out why it isn't.

We spent three nights at Marina All Suites at the recommendation of Brazil Nuts, and we're so glad we did. It was our first time in Rio, and Brazil for that matter, so deciding on a place to stay was challenging. There are newer, sleeker properties such as Fasano closer to Ipanema, but the charm, location, amenities and over-the-top staff at Marina All Suites have earned our loyalty. As the name implies, every room is a suite - comfortable and spacious with European charm. We enjoyed an ocean view which was amazing. This is a more quiet, residential part of Rio, and we were quite comfortable walking the streets and beach. The property has a quaint restaurant on the second floor with funky decor, piped in Bossa Nova and a nice breakfast. The rooftop pool is small, but offers great views and the perfect respite after walking/touring all day. You can call staff from a house phone to request refreshments. It was here we enjoyed some of the best caipirinhas. Again, the staff make the place - they speak several languages and went out of their way to accommodate us be it a taxi, confirming our transfers, restaurant/tour recommendations or just to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Obrigada, Marina All Suites!

Room Tip: Each floor has just one room with an ocean view.

The rooms were a bit austere, but the staff, restaurant, bar and location made up for it. The staff was extremely helpful and ready to recommend restaurants and make reservations. We didn't want to leave, the staff made out first trip to Rio very enjoyable.

I cannot praise Marina All Suites enough. We stayed for three nights on a week-long visit to Rio de Janeiro and we would have gladly stayed on but for the fact that we wanted to try a different location and had already booked at JW Marriot in Copacabana for the end of the stay.

Let me point out the wonderful things at Marina All Suites:

LOCATION. Mid-Leblon beach near Posto 11, a beautiful and quiet residential area of Río (except for the traffic which is ALL over the city, no escaping that). Very safe even at night, we walked to and from dinner and zero worries. Three blocks away, parallel to the sea, you have the main street of Leblon, Ataulfo Paiva, where shops, banks, restaurants are plentiful. You have also walking-distance the trendy area of Dias Ferreira where the it-scene for dining & drinking is located. There we ate at Zuka one night and Sushi Leblon the next one and amazing (see separate reviews). Also for lunch the Fellini per-kilo is 300 metres away and is so good we went twice. If you want to move to Ipanema or Copa, just walk and enjoy the seaside, rent a bike along the cycle trail or catch 318 bus for 2,75 reais.

STAFF & SERVICE. Really pleasant, young, perfect English and Spanish, always serviceable to book us a taxi, place to eat, etc. Any minor details in the suite were rapidly solved. NOTE: current is 110 V so take care if you carry 220 V appliances such as notebooks. Mobile phones are OK in both voltages.

POOL, SAUNA & GYM. Smallish but with outstanding views and always empty! So you practically have them for yourself. Be sure to let the reception know in advance you're going up, so they can turn the sauna on. The rooftop bar is not servicing now, at least during our stay, but read the next point.

BAR DO LADO. This was our salvation on the night we flew into Rio. Really tired after a 10-hour flight and 5-hour jet-lag, we just relaxed on the terrace outside the hotel where after-office crowds were having snacks (petiscos) and drinks, so we figured it was OK. Well we had a good time and food was quite good. We didn't have a chance to try the restaurant on the 2nd floor or breakfast, as we opted to eat outside.

THE SUITE. Large, comfortable, really nice, room and sitting room, large bed, soft linen and towels, bathrobes, good toiletries (Occitaine en Provence which are amazing, hadn't seen these as hotel amenities not even in 5**** hotels, also daily replenished), good shower, A/C, TV sets and phones in both rooms. I don't understand other TA reviews which criticize the decoration or the furniture style - this is Brazil, and this is how people furnish here! Also lovely little details like the logotyped bottles of water, the chocolates, and the daily thought printed on a card (I loved the "Become the change you want to see").

All in all we had a wonderful stay at Marina All Suites (in spite of continuous rain) and I must say they has nothing to envy a 5***** hotel.

Obrigado and hope to come back!

The location is amazing. Right in front of Leblon beach - you can't bet that !!!!! - and next to the "butiquins" in Final do Leblon. But the hotel need to upscale their rooms in order to charge what they charge. It is too expensive for what you get !!!!!!!!!!

This hotel is very well located in Leblon however overpriced. Facilities and rooms are modern decoration but it's visible that they are a bit old. Size of the rooms are big and the once looking at the ocean have a fantastic view, specially the top floors. The hotel has a very small pool at the roof floor with practically no room for more than 3 people. Service is average and they can book for you activities to do in Rio. It's not a boutique hotel as the european concept however it's the smaller tower compare with the other Marina Hotel in the same area. Service and breakfast are average.

Room Tip: You should ask for Suit if you want the highest range. Luxury rooms have only partial view to the oc...
