Penny pinching but pleasant
Nice hotel and great location although there was a shooting outside! No tissues provided and coffee in room was charged for. Reported broken bulb in bathroom never repaired and requested ironing board twice but it never arrived. Breakfast very good and lovely views from room but not an ‘executive’ experience and rather over priced

Just okay
It was very busy and was given room next to housekeeping - very loud morning and night. The pool bar they didn’t speak English very well and they messed up food orders. Breakfast staff was wonderful but not a lot of variety for food for a pre-paid at breakfast.

Great place to stay
Early check-in and early breakfast on departure day were a nice bonus. Definitely worth getting a room with a balcony facing the beach. Wonderful view even from the bed and plenty of privacy. Service was excellent and so was cleanliness. Highly recommend the hotel. Pool and pool bar were nothing special though, felt crowded and a bit awkward.

4/10 Fair

Semi-decent hotel, far better options
We stayed at the Windsor for 6 nights. The hotel is decent and gets the job done when it comes to basics but is far from a 4 star hotel. The beds are extremely uncomfortable with very poor bedding. Our sheets had small holes in them. We were constantly tossing and turning and woke with neck pain. The bathroom has no ventilation. The noise within the hotel was terrible. We had no issue with party noise, we’re a young couple but the noise from the hotel itself is ridiculous. Walls are paper thin so you can hear people above you walking, water running and folks in the hallway all hours. You can hear staff moving around at all hours. This being said, the staff was kind (except for the concierge on our last day. We had guaranteed late check out and he harassed us and was rude when we wouldn’t leave early). We plan to return to Rio but won’t be staying here. Certainly not worth what we paid.
