What a fabulous place. Booked as surprise for husbands 50th birthday. Porto bay was recommended by travel agent who had been there. It really stood up to expectations. Our room was clean and tidy, we didn't have a room at front f hotel, but still had a balcony. The breakfast was great, plenty of choice, and ideal views from window seats, watching locals run on the beach.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful, and most spoke several languages. The location of the hotel was excellent, right on copacobana beach, with great views from the roof top bar and pool, which was incidentally a greet place to be for coffee, or early evening drinks. The beach facilities were also excellent, with the hotels own area on the beach, with beds and towels, well staffed, and drinks available too. The car services and concierge were also very helpful and beyond expectations.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone. Felt very safe, ideal location, on the most stunning of beaches I have ever seen. Thanks to all staff for making the holiday so enjoyable, and to Jorge who took us on a memorable tour of sugar loaf and Christ the redeemer statue.
Make the most of the local area for eating and drinking, both copacobana and ipanema have great choices for food and drinks, don't be persuaded to go to leblon, quite pricey and less choice. Do go to lapa, for the real brazil!!
