We stayed in Barra Windsor for our family winter vacation . The hotel is clean and the view is great, right across from the beautiful beaches. The staff at the reception is good with English but most of the service staff they do not speak English communication is problem. Service is slow. Breakfast buffet definetly needs improvement.

The hotel is alright. The spot is brilliant, as it is in front of the beach. The service was very good and breakfast was of a high quality. The room was ok, you can tell that it has seen better years and I did not like the fact that wifi was not included

Right on the Barra beach, with ocean views from many rooms, the Windsor Barra is reasonably priced, clean, and boasts good service. As some other reviews have indicated, some updating is justified, but the pluses outweigh the minuses. The surf is amazing, with windkites and surfers in abundance. A slight drawback is the relative lack of restaurants in the vicinity;...

This beachfront hotel in the Barra section of Rio has some dated elegance. It's décor is reminiscent of Miami Beach, circa 1970. The rooms and baths could use some updating. However, the service is excellent, as staff were responsive to our need to change rooms because of noise and faulty internet connection. By the way, there is a daily internet...

The hotel feels a little outdated.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)...

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.
