Not quite the standard you would expect from a 5 Star hotel. The place lacks any character but the suite we had was comfortable enough with a nice balcony view across the road to the beach and there is a nice pool area (as long as you don't sit next to the music loud speaker or there is some children's thing on).
It is NOT in the centre of Rio or anywhere near the action so unless you are going to lie on the beautiful beach just across the road - it's one redeeming feature to this place! you will need to get a taxi everywhere.
I wouldn't recommend eating here either, very expensive and not that interesting except for the breakfast which is extensive.
The staff are OK, pleasant enough but nothing special.
