My husband and I recently spent a short but incredible holiday in Rio.
If you have any mobility problems, this is unlikely to be the hotel for you as there are lots of steps. Other than that, the place is sheer magic! The rooms are unique, we were lucky enough to have the suite, but the views from all the rooms, day and night, have to be seen to be believed. The hotel is a taxi ride from the beaches, but the surroundings are just fabulous. Christ the Redeemer to the left, sea ahead and more tree covered hills to the right, tall papaya trees outside the window, lovely friendly little monkeys who will gently take slices of banana from your hand! Lovely breakfast on the veranda...what more could a person want? The staff, led by Raniere are exceptional and so, so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Raniere's advice was well worth taking and added hugely to our enjoyment of the holiday. When Louise discovered that I was being devoured by mosquitos, she sprayed the room, closed the shutters and provided me with repellent!
Would I go back again? In a flash. Couldn't recommend the place more!
