The breakfast is very good. The decor of the room is insufficient. There is not enough light to read. No chairs and no table on the balcony. Only Brazilian TV programs. The water for showering is not always warm.

Good 6.0
The food was nice at breakfast, however was not as nice when I ordered at the pool. I found the room service to be a high standard. The pool was relatively small and got busy often. The main issue I had was that many of the staff didn't speak English, whilst I know this can happen I do not think the staff were trained in how to deal with English speakers as they would often walk off and hang up the phone. Otherwise the stay was enjoyable.

Good value. Will be more expensive when upgraded
The best: - location with amazing views, - pool on top with bar service, - fantastic breakfast, - proximity to nightlife. - lounge/bar area and servers were very welcoming Room for improvement: it's noisy! (at least where we were on the 7th floor) - doors slam shut when closed (need to install pneumatic closers), - tile hallway is loud as carts & suitcases are rolled down the hall (carpet seen on another floor so maybe they're working on this), - fitness room and sauna not fit for use (no a/c in workout room, faulty equipment in sauna). We really liked the property and the people.
