Rio:PortoBay

Portobay is in a good location.Rooms were always kept clean and the service staff were very helpful. [...]Price was too high for the quality of the hotel. You can stay at much nicer hotels for the same price hence an average rating.

Highly recommended!

Service was excellent. Location was right by Copacabana beach. I felt the area was safe. The hotel rooms were clean, the pool was nice, and we even had chocolates on our pillows each night. I am glad we chose this hotel for our stay.

Good price to quality

I fly frequently to Rio and I am really excited of finally having found a great option: great quality for the value, good beds, great location, and excellent service... if you go in business this is a centric location and you may even have time to jog around copacabana..

Average Hotel, great location

Oh boy... The rooms on the hotel website looked great... We surely didn't get one of those!!!! The room was small, no views, two single beds.... man.... The pool up the roof is nice.... But it is only 3 feet deep!!!!! The crowd is old...mostly seniors. No fun there.

On Copacabana Beach

Nice Hotel, But 2 days in a row someone went through my suit case and pants pockets while I was at the pool. The first day they only got a few dollars in loose Brazilian change that was in my pants pocket, I was using my safe and recommend that to all. This was a petty thief and only took Brazilian money, no personal items were missing. The second day I arranged my belongings in a manner I would know that someone had moved them, sure enough 2 days in a row someone went through my stuff. Hotel management did nothing about this, keep any valuables or money in the safe that is in the room when you do not have it with you.

You are on Copacabana Beach walk the beach, this Hotel is maybe 2 blocks from the Copacabana Palace Hotel, there are plenty of good resturants and places to have a beer too. They do not [*] but be careful the tourist are sometimes easy prey for petty thieft. Plenty of organized tours if you are into that also.

Porto Bay Rio January 2010

The hotel was great, but the location not so hot. The neighborhood is not a good one to walk around in; next visit to Rio we will probably rent a private apartment in Ipanema or Leblon. But, for a first time visit, you couldn't ask for better. The only complaint was that the front desk staff, while very helpful and friendly, was spread too thin among the full hotel's guests and not always available.

Very nice in all respects

This is an excellent hotel. The minute we arrived, our bags were immediately collected and we enjoyed a glass of champagne in the lobby while we waited for our room to be ready (5-10 mins). We were upgraded from a side view room to an ocean view -- just an amazing view from the balcony. The service was great, the room was spotless. Bathroom was a bit small, but the shower was really good. My only complaint is that the internet was very expensive (40 R$), so we only paid for it for one day. View from the rooftop bar/pool was amazing. Very recommended for couples.

We walked down Ipanema beach and didn't find it superior in any way, really. At least in low season, don't bother paying super-high prices for mediocre accomodations.
