“My Favorite in Rio”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

If you're going to Rio, this is probably where you should stay. Rio is a very dangerous place, and it's very easy to accidentally venture into the wrong place. The staff here make sure to keep you safe, give you advice as to where to go etc etc. But more importantl;y the hotel is beautiful and a very comfortable place to stay.

Just finished a 5 night stay with an ocean view room. I cannot talk highly enough about the hotel. From the spacious room to the warm pool and the fabulous service all through the hotel. Dinner in the main restaurant on the last night completed a wonderful holiday.
I would not stay anywhere I'm Rio but at this hotel.

So love the idea that I might have shared a suite with Simone de Beauvoir, Sting or Stravinski. My fiancé and I just spent three days at the Copacabana palace. First, we were greeted with a major upgrade on our room. Instead of a regular room, we ended up with a two bedroom + living room + two terraces extravaganza! The hotel staff was friendly and the concierge was very helpful. Pool is delightful. I had heard so so things about the neighbourhood but actually really enjoyed being on Copacabana beach. If you want to splurge, it's definitely a good choice.

This hotel was the start of our honeymoon and set such high expectations for the rest of the trip!

Highlight was the wonderful concierge. Nothing was too much to ask. They recommended some great places for dinner and also helped us plan some of the tours.

The lunch buffet is outstanding! The pool area is great to lounge around in.

The only place where I could ask for a bottle of water and get it (if I asked for 1, I usually got 3) without question. :) The room size is quite good.. overall good amenities.

We stayed for 3 nights and it was all very memorable.

Room Tip: Definitely use the concierge even if you have your trip planned out. They will have helpful little t...

For that special occasion stay a night or 2 at this hotel. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable. When we had trouble logging on to the free wi if, our waiter immediately summoned one of the hostesses who helped us immediately. Everyone is eager to help. The pool is large and magnificent. Breakfast which is included was excellent and tasty. It is served at poolside or in an adjacent dining room. The only gripe is that if your room is in the new section thee are several sets of steps to negotiate. Front desk staff was always ready to help.

I don't even know where to start! We were on our honeymoon and after a tiring fortnight doing Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Iguazu we turned up at the Copacabana Palace and from start to finish had the most incredible experience of our lives. Our travel agent had a few issues but they were dealt with beautifully by the wonderful staff (huge thanks to Juliana the front desk manager and Cesar from the customer relations department and Marcello who all had to deal with an over emotional newly wed).
We had a lovely room at the back of the main hotel which actually was great for the noise factor and beautifully decorated and maintained. The Havaianas are a great touch, such a little treat. The pool is just beautiful and the pool staff are fabulous - the ever smiling Fabio ensured we were never lacking caipirinhas. The breakfast buffet is delicious although try and get there before 10am as by 10.30 it is decimated!
We actually stayed over New Years Eve which was amazing!!! We had left it too late to book into one of the 3 parties in the hotel so decided to order champagne and room service and head to balcony overlooking to beach to watch the fireworks at midnight. Indescribable!!! What an atmosphere without having to join the millions of people on the beach. We feel so lucky to have experienced it.
As many people have said below, the hotel is grand, beautiful and has all the things you would expect from a 5 star hotel. However, what sets the Copacabana apart from other 5 star hotels that we visited on our honeymoon was the service. The staff of the Copacabana are a class above. The Concierge were unbelievable, nothing a chore - Luis Cesar, Rodrigo, Marcus, Luciano, Jo and Juliana were on hand to help all day every day. The pool staff I've already mentioned were superb. The front desk and guest relations simply went over and above the call of duty (I mention Cesar again here) to make our honeymoon the most memorable trip ever. I keep all fingers crossed that my husband and I are able to visit this wonderful hotel again at some point in our lifetime.
