The hotel feels a little outdated. The service was anyway good, the room comfortable and clean. Almost no problem with the wifi, I was left a couple of time without connection. The location is very nice with a wonderful beach in front of the hotel. The minus points: 1) English language is a challenge with some of the personnel 2)... More

Me and my girlfriend were bored in our room, then we decided to check the swimming pool on the roof of the hotel... we ended up finding a cool bar with an amazing bar tender that managed to make us laugh and try some good cocktails:-)

I stayed here for three days due to a conference being held in the hotel. The website pictures are not what the hotel actually look like. The hotel room was outdated, with few power outlets (not convenient if you are travelling with laptop, phone..etc) and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. It was a thin mattress and the pillows felt like... More

I booked a pick-up in the airport with the Hotel with the condition of including the cost in the Hotel's bill but later they refuse to do it, furthermore, the cost of the pickup was absolutely abusive. 290 Reais (85€, a robbery ). The room is big but the carpet is not so clean. There is an annoying noise coming... More

This hotel is only for conventions, not for tourism as it is very far from Copacabana and the main attractions of Rio. But despite the fact that it is supposed to aim to business people the Internet service was awful. Some people used to communicate by whattsapp were not able to send any message. For others, photographs don´t pass through... More

Rather prefect location at the long Barra Beach. Good breakfast buffet. Reception staff not unfriendly - but not very helpful and not welcoming you as I would hope. I had a room facing the sea: 2 windows but the one of them was damaged so you could see absolutely nothing through this window. I saw rather many of these windows... More

Lovely hotel. Stayed during the Paralympics with my daughter and friendsee. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Pool top deck was beautiful as was the gym facilities. Breakfast each morning was lovely,staff very accommodating a few little issues with the language barrier but all in all a great place to stay.
