We came for 11 days and never have we stayed anywhere where the staff were so helpful! The rooms may be a little dated but over all the hotel is nice and clean. The staff really went out of their way to help us and make sure we had a great time in Brazil. Would strongly recommend this hotel!

Firstly, one of the 5 stars that this hotel has to be due to it's location, which is directly opposite the beach, and this is definitely one of it's huge bonuses. The hotel is looking quite tired in places and from what I've heard they may be in the process of a refurbishment. The room we had (1509) was large...

Having stayed at the leblon Sheraton, Sofitel and jw Marriott, this hotel does not compare. 3 star. Rooms dated and damp smelling, but big. Facilities were poorly maintained (e.g toilet in restaurant was full of mould on wall and lifts did not work). Location has limited other options for breakfast. This one was a buffet and felt like a school...

I always stay here when I come to Rio for business. It's a no-brainer for me. Quite a few reviews complain about some of the furniture being a little worse for wear, and MANY complain about humidity in the rooms. Humidity was a problem at this hotel for a very long time, and in the last few months, they've put...

Everyone in the staff were friendly and helpful! Comfortable room and bed, clean. Very nice breakfast, perfect. Wonderful pool area with a good bar service. Nice location, very close to the beach where Sheraton have their own chairs and you get to borrow their towels, it's not Copacabana but the only difference is that there are fewer people on the...

There are many good things about this hotel. It's location, facilities, breakfast. The lobby is nice and promises much more. However it's rooms are probably the worst I've stayed in and not what I was expecting from a Sheraton. Mine was tired and dated which I can handle but it smelt musty and gave the impression of lacking cleanliness. The...

Overall the hotel is average, but has a very nice stretch of beach just in front, food is good and not too pricy. Other than that nothing fancy. Rooms do require renovation despite being comfortable. Sleeping quality id good, internet in the room was not working well but the view is great and sitting at the balcony is very relaxing....
