Once renowned for it's opulence and star-studded clientele, the Copacabana Palace today is overshadowed literally and figuratively by the more luxurious and modern hotels that line the beautiful crescent Copacabana Beach. Perhaps in an attempt to compensate for it's fading glory, the Copacabana Palace was the only place we found in our week-long stay in Rio De Janeiro lacking in the friendliness and courtesy that appears to be ingrained in the Brazilian people. Definitely not worth the money.

Pricey, but worth the money. Great selection of choice local dishes. Great deserts. And fantastic spot to see all of the famous beach. We really enjoyed the experience.

It is beautiful, chic, overpriced and who cares. The brunch is ample, lovely al fresco options and hey- our travel agent got it included. Free service with chairs on the beach. Very nice staff. Terribly cramped and packed lobby but we had a wonderful stay! The dinner at Cipriani was one of the best EVER.

Pérgula has always been a legend in Rio de Janeiro's gastronomic scene. Right on the ground floor of mythical Copacabana Palace Hotel, facing the beach of Copacabana and the most famous pool in Brazil ... An icon and, definitely, where else start a New Year at Copacabana beach? So, January 1st, 2014 Brunch at the Copa, as cariocas simply refer to this hotel, was the right place to be! Magic and excellent service, champagne, caviar and shrimps, friends and the New Year's atmosphere and high spirits. Reservation is a must, specially on Saturday's for the best "Feijoada" (Brazilian typical meal, with black beans, pork shops, rice, oranges and cabbage) in Rio de Janeiro and on Sundays for the so much acclaimed Brunch. Well, prices ... forget prices and indulge yourself a day at a Hotel with history, charm and star quality. You sure deserve it! Cheers! Happy New Year!
