10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely beautiful! The property is stunning. Clean and comfy rooms as well. However, I will state that the restaurants were mediocre at best. Our power went out in the room one night and the hotel did not offer any resolution to accomodate the matter or compensation. The rooms next to us all had power so it was specifically our room only. This resort is on Leblon beach which is the least popular beach, however you get views from all angles such as the ocean, the city and the mountains. It is far from the nightlife, restaurants or popular beaches and if you are looking for convenience I wouldn't recommend this place. Also there was construction on the road to get into our hotel so traffic was a nightmare. The staff was very pleasant, resourceful and kind. They offer plenty of activites to do as well.
