Reviewed 21 April 2013

My last review on this hotel was in 2011 and I gave it 5 stars. At this time, my review is only 3 stars. That's because: 1 - Called room service and asked for a bucket of ice to chill a wine bottle. They asked me if I had bought the wine at the hotel. I said no and because...

The location is great right across from the beach which the hotel has a section with chairs and umbrellas. The staff was also very helpful the only downside as an American was the breakfast buffet which was a little weak.

The Windsor does everything in a competent manner. The rooms are clean and okay. The restaurant is okay. The bar is small and okay. Nothing is done badly, it is just that everything is done up to a point, and that point is okay. It is as if their motto is "just provide enough service to get things done". That...

We organised a large conference here and there are not many facilities in Rio that can cope with an event of our size at the quality we want. That said, we expected much more from the Windsor Barra. E.G. the A/C in my bedroom didn't work and could barely be controlled in the main conference rooms resulting in some delegates...

I just got back from staying at the Windsor in Barra. Brilliant hotel! Breakfast buffet was good and the service was great. Rooms clean and modern. Amazing view from the top of the hotel where they have a pool and small kids pool. Barra beach is great for surfers and kite surfing. Wind picks up in the afternoon and there...

Two days of fun and a week of work based at this hotel, for a modern hotel it is shabby, soap dishhanging off in the shower, missing and faulty lightbulbs in the room and the cleaning levels poor. Pool on the rooftop has a stunning view if you can put up with the noise and the smell of the airconditioning....

This is clearly either the training school for the 7 other Windsor hotels in RIO or it is where the poor staff and management are located. We dealt with the reception on 5 occasions and each time except for a restaurant recommendation were hopeless or just bluffed the wrong information. They were friendly but it seemed it must have been...

I must admit I was relieved to end my 2 weeks trip and this great hotel. I stayed at the Windsor Barra for 5 nights. It's located just by a clean beach, you only need to cross a road. They have a private area on the beach with deckchairs and parasols. The sea over there is quite rough though and...

Reviewed 22 January 2013

The hotel is very good, the service is excellent but Barra da Tijuca is far from the tourist points in Rio de Janeiro. A football team and a TV station uses the hotel very often, sometimes the lobby gets a little louder. Very good for a work trip hotel.
