Unexpected surprise

Arrived to find pool closed, gym closed, pounding and drilling all day long and one night until 10 pm!! Also problems with TV. Weak signal probably due to construction! Otherwise great hotel! Would recommend when construction is finished.

Great location, Great View

The location was perfect. Most of the staff was very friendly, except for a couple of receptionists... I was very disapponted with the swimming pool - it's only 3ft deep, very small and the water is not heated. Otherwise, it's a good hotel that pretty much has everything you need - beach service, wifi, hair dryer in the room, etc... The view from the rooftop is spectacular!

Great Business

It was a very nice hotel and a good location for my business in the city center. The Copacabana beach is not as nice as Ipanema, but to be in Copacabana, this location is wonderful. The pool deck view is gorgeous (though the pool leaves much to be desired) and the pool bar serves delicious drinks. The room is only so so clean which is really me only criticism.

Great place for our 28th anniversary

The hotel is in a wonderful location on the beach..We did have a king suite and it was worth the money as everything is expensive in Rio. Every morning and evening we spent time on the balcony we had, looking at the beach and enjoying a drink. The staff was wonderful they help with restaurant reservations and linging up drivers for us. There are no ice machines, however, all we did is call room service and they brought buckets of ice to us. I would definetly request a higher floor due to the noise on the sidewalks and traffic. I would definietly stay there again. from the hotel we were able to walk the beach, find place to eat, sit and have drinks on the beach. the breakfast buffet that is included in the room price was very good.

Two Nights in Porto Bay Rio

This hotel is a good hotel for Rio. There is nothing exceptional about it but it checks all the boxes. Its comparable to a Holiday Inn in any beach city in the US.
