Great stay, beautiful views and tasty caipirinhas
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our stay in Rio. This is a gorgeous hotel in a fantastic location. I am a gold awards member but was not offered any upgrades, but the room we got was great and the early check in and late check out was fantastic. The hotel offers many additional services, like cocktail making and beach tennis to name a couple. The cocktail making class was amazing, I learned how to make a true Brazilian caipirinha and ended up having 5 cocktails! - Antonio did a fantastic job, guided us through the process, a very worthwhile experience. The setting is perfect, the music and atmosphere in the 6th floor area was nice, and each night I found myself having a few cocktails at the bar… nothing a run along the Copacabana the next day couldnt sort. The hotel had a private beach area, my girlfriend and I went there for sunset only to be told that it shut at 5pm :( - I was quite disssppointed as I took out my professional camera and thought it would be safe but I had to go and put it back to my room as Rio can be quite dangerous unfortunately.

I would rate this resort 5 star. Service, Cleanliness, Comfort all top tier. Two pools, modern great views…breakfast buffet with omelette station and fruits assortment grades an A. Dinner options available within walking distance. Must try Gino’s Italian Cafe, right next to hotel. Their Sea Bass and Italian dishes were outstanding/delicious. The beach is fabulous, great waves for body surfing. I recommend walking to the left of hotel, down about 10 buildings…enjoy surf there it’s better beach and better waves.

8/10 Very good

The whole experience was good but one little detail; the room smelled like mold and I kept the window open when I wasn’t in the room. I had to take Claritin to help me. But everything else was pretty good.
