If you are staying in Rio for a short time and would like a very nice hotel with a good location then do try this one. The staff are friendly, efficient and speak very good english. The room with balcony was pleasantly situated unfortunately not on the front but just on the corner and still with a good view of the beach. Toiletries are provided in the bathroom and you have use of a dressing gown and flip flops of which the latter can be taken but do please double check at the front desk first.
The buffet style breakfast was very nice and the restaurant is situated at the front so you can appreciate the beautiful scenery whilst eating. There are plenty of bars and restaurants along the front so you can eat out in the evening or just take a stroll. I am led to believe you can also use the bars of other hotels should you wish. This hotel does have a swimming pool on the roof but do check before you book to make sure the pool is not having any maintenance work done at the time of your stay. On the beach there are loungers and towels provided with a member of staff present at all times.More
