“Memorable and lovely.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

I had a fantastic vacation here. My partner had organized this trip and hotel as a surprise, he'd even got one of the staff to bring me a birthday present to the room (disguised as room service) which I was grateful for the staff that participated and helped made our stay extra special.

Staff were friendly from the moment we arrived, Food was lovely and the room was very exceptionally large and very clean. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anybody and I will definitely go again if in Rio. Also right opposite the beach and in a very good location!

This was my third stay at this hotel and each time I get a better experience. At first I've found the hotel had very good rooms and facilities but there was still room for improvement in the guest services department. Now, even that has improved and it made my stay a memorable one. All the issues during my stay, like having misplaced a jacket were solved with a very commited attitude from the staff, specially Ms. Luciana, whom I have to specially thank.
Besides that, rooms are spacious, very clean and confortable, the pool bar and deck has amazing view, and very confortable by day and night where you can have some drinks while listening to great music and enjoying the best view over copacabana.
Will definitely return.

we stayed at the Pestana Rio Atlantico for 4 nights at the end of febr. 2014. We stayed in room 1103, which is a suite, consisting of bedroom + salon, with beautiful side-view of south copacabana and the Sugar Loaf. The room was very clean and well-maintained; bathroom with very large (rain)shower, but with little spare place to put the amenities. I'm sure that an extra shelf would be apprecfiated!
Buffet breakfast was included in the price - with a cook on order for special ommelettes and eggs, as well as pancakes, wafels, etc.
The staff, both housekeeping, restaurant and front desk were all very nice, courteous and friendly. The location of the hotel is AAA, smack in the middle of Copacobana Beach.
And last but not least: the Roof Terrace with swimmingpool, [snack]bar and lounge chairs is the perfect place to enjoy the incredible sunsets of Rio!
Thanks to the whole staff for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at Pestana for 2 weeks during January and again for another 2 weeks during February 2014.

The hotel is clean and the general service is good.
Most of the staff is fluent in English and very helpful.

Our rooms were modern and clean with comfortable beds and pillows.
This is the first hotel I ever stayed in where I could even order a specific type of pillow from a menu. The standard feather pillows however was very comfortable.

Their full frontal sea view rooms are very spacious.
The rooms we stayed in, both offered a desk for comfortable working on your laptop.
WIFI is good and free in the rooms, a great plus compared to other hotels in the area that charge as much as R$60 per day for internet in the room.

Their breakfast on the rooftop restaurant is excellent and hands down the best in Brazil, not only Rio, but Brazil. The choice is very good and their fresh fruits are very fresh and choice even vary from day to day.
By the way the view from the rooftop restaurant is awesome.

The rooftop swimming pool is awesome and the biggest I've seen so far in any Rio hotel.

The pool area has a bar which becomes a nice venue in the evenings with a DJ for a great night out party or just a nice place to chill with friends. The views at night from there are awesome with a 270 degree view of Copacabana's night lights and sugar mountain.

The hotel's location is great and is situated in the middle of Copacabana beach. Behind and around the hotel you are in easy and short walking reach of dozens of restaurants, all major banks and any possible shop you can think of. The hotel offer free vouchers for free transfer to and from the shopping mall, Rio Sul, which cater for most needs.

During our stay it was necessary to change our reservation dates as well as our booked accommodation and when we contact the Rooms Division Manager, Mr. Gefferson Alves, he arranged this for us very quickly and efficiently.

As mentioned above, we stayed twice at Pestana, first during January and then again during February. On our return for our second stay of two weeks we were welcomed with a snack and personal welcome letter in our room, from Mr Alves.
During our second stay our son was also born and on our return from the hospital we found a letter from Mr Alves congratulation us on the arrival of our new born son and a bottle of sparkling wine in our fridge.

These personal touches were highly appreciated by us, and for the next few weeks before we left Rio and driving pass Pestana, my wife and I always referred to Pestana when passing it, .....as passing our home. Yes, that is really how we started to feel about Pestana,....our home away from home.

Mr Alves really made our stay at Pestana special and very enjoyable.

We will definitely stay at Pestana again and I think it is mainly because of his input.

I will definitely recommend Pestana to anyone as a great choice for a first stay in Rio and I bet you, you will return.

If you however have any queries or need help with anything during your stay, do yourself a favour and ask for Mr Gefferson Alves to assist you and to make your stay more enjoyable at Pestana.


This is a great place to stay.....keep up the great work Pestana!!

The suite we had was quite spacious. The service in general was good. Shower was nice and big, really good when coming off the beach with a child, we could all rinse off at the same time! Breakfasts were good.

I don't think they bleach their white towels, which to me is a very good thing. As long as towels are clean there is no need to add to the destruction of the planet. It is the first time I've stayed in a hotel supplying greyish towels and I was not unhappy about it. I provide mostly bright yellow and bright green towels in my establishment, thereby also eliminating the need for bleach.

Room Tip: Seafront rooms have the busy main road in front, but the view is fantastic!
