Stayed at this hotel for 13 days with family and must say it is a fairly average place to stay. Only highlight i might give away is the very kind and professional staff, for the rest rooms, restaurant, food are all average so do not expect a 5 star location. Pool is decent and kids had fun. It is not near the beach either, although, there is a shuttle boat service to cross the channel nearby and walk to the beach (20 min walk after crossing). Hotel is in the middle of a residential area and only nearby shopping center is 30 min walk away. Located in Barra da Tijuca is at least 1 hour away from Zona Sul where Ipanema and Copacabana are located. We personally had several problems with the room access cards, we had to go to reception to reprogram again nearly every day..(no.... cards were not close to cellphones!).. so going to the room was a pain since we had to take the elevator down again to reprogram cards and finally get access to the room! Quite expensive for what it is...
