We have just returned from Rio back to London, and chose the Miramar as our hotel in Rio. We could have stayed at the Copacabana Palace (for slightly less) but don't enjoy huge hotel complexes, where film stars are treated like film stars, but everyone else impersonally. At the Miramar they understand what the personal touch means, and every single member of their staff treat you with polite, discreet respect, making you feel important and their guest. Alas, many hotels have lost the ability to offer this, Miramar I am glad to say understand the importance of looking after their guests. This was probably the most important element of our stay, from bell boy to room maid, front desk to restaurant, each and every member of the team, made us so welcome, and were so kind. Even the smallest request was met with a prompt response, in fact, nothing was impossible ! Nielto and Renalto at breakfast were so caring, always making sure our needs were met. Roberta at the front desk both charming and highly efficient.
We ate at the Sa restaurant twice whilst at the hotel. The food and wine were outstanding, by far some of the best we have enjoyed in many years of extensive travel worldwide. People claim it is pricey, but by London standards this was in fact cheap for us. The hotel breakfast is one of the best we have enjoyed, the variety mind boggling, the freshness unsurpassed. The egg chef can make your eggs in any style you like, all brought with a smile to your table.
The hotel is ideally situated facing Copacabana beach, but also minutes walk from Ipanema and Leblon beach, so you can enjoy the best of three world class beaches. Taxis are plentiful outside the hotel, and public transport nearby if required. A supermarket is literally minutes walk from your hotel and carries all kinds of amenities if you run out.
On the top floor is a lovely warm swimming pool with breathtaking views of the Copacabana Riviera, and a lovely seated area with bar. I would recommend at least a room with partial sea view, full if you really want luxury ! If you want the personal touch, this hotel has it in abundance, and comes highly recommended. All aspects for us scored full marks. We will certainly be back, to enjoy even more of this vibrant city. Obrigada Miramar !!
