A nice and brand new hotel. Just across the road is the beach. Very safe and able to walk along the beach front.
Room and breakfast is great,
Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
Pros :- quite and nice with beach front. Nice neighbourhood. Easy to get buses to/from tone centre. Friendly and helpful staff. A new construction next to the hotel so can be very noisy.
Cons :- far from the bustling town.

Only 2 restaurant to choose for meals at night, only 5 mins walk from the hotel. Turn left from the hotel entrance to walk to these 2 restaurant.

Room Tip: If you don't mind to be away from the bustling town centre but still have access to the beach, t...

A brand new hotel, very welcoming and modern. Rooms and beds are very comfortable, with great view of the sea. Breakfast is delicious with different food options.
Location is great for those seeking to be at the beach, but not in the crowd.

Room Tip: Good only if you've got business to do at Barra da Tijuca. Very far from city center and tourist...

The service at reception is simply terrible. It looks like they are doing you the favor of talking to you... All in a bad mood! We forgot a phone charger and when we asked at reception the guy, without checking, said nothing was left and that our collegue probably forgot it somewhere else.
Also it gets quite noisy when the wind blows in the middle os the night.
Not worth it at all!

LOCATION:
If you want to spend your time in Rio at Barra da Tijuca and surroundings, this is great location - the beach is just across the street, with a good track for seaside jogging and wonderful sunset.
But if you want to visit (proper) Rio de Janeiro (with its main must-see points), then you should avoid Barra da Tijuca. The traffic is a real problem in Rio. To go anywhere near the South Beaches or Downtown in Rio would stole you almost a hour of your precious time in Rio.

HOTEL:
It is a 1 year-old hotel, but some details already need maintenance as inside the lifts. Good room, clean, modern. I booked for a single room, and there was three very narrow single beds. I'd really like more just one queen size bed, but ok. The TV hadn't good cable signal, bad sound and image. The window gives you a great sight to the ocean, specially at the sunset time. It's not sound-proof; from the 7th floor I could hear the waves - what it's no problem at all. The walls seemed thin: I could hear the sound of the shower in the next room - which really can wake you up.
The bathroom is very good - you can enjoy either jacuzzi or shower.
Average breakfast - the coffee itself isn't good (I'm a coffee-addict), the bread could be better. They cannot make a good espresso for you. Don't even ask for. It's far from "continental" breakfast Brazilian hotels use to offer.
Last thing: they charge for wi-fi connection - IMHO it's rude if you are paying no bargain.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with sight to the sea, upper floors.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for a business conference he was attending, so we didn't know what to expect. We had a view of the ocean that was fantastic, as the beach was right across the street. We really liked the cleanliness, as well as the pleasant efficiency of the staff (Mauricio spoke English and was kind and very helpful).

I was on my own in the daytime, so the tour that was arranged by the concierge staff was really perfect--small and personable (Try to get Victor as your guide--he is awesome).
The breakfast buffet was very good with some local dishes available. Also the small bar in the lobby made the best caipirinha! I had one my first night there, and never had another that rivaled it.

The only downside was the hotel's location from downtown Rio. I took taxis to the city proper and to the botanical garden, and it took a fair amount of time to get there due to traffic and distance. If you take a yellow cab you need to pay in cash, though it is less expensive than calling for a red cab which takes credit/debit cards.

I should mention something about the noise at night since other writers mentioned this. Neither my husband nor I were bothered by it. It was sort of loud, I suppose, but it was a white noise from the ocean across the street with the sound of cars passing by, not a lot of honking or voices, etc. So to me this was just ambient sound. Maybe we are immune since we spend a fair amount of time in Manhattan, where it really is noisy.

Room Tip: You must get a room facing the ocean!

I loved staying in this hotel. Nice and fast staff, new and really clean room. I was lucky enough to get the highestfloor facing the beautiful Barra beach.
Very good bbreakfast.... Go for a walk.... You'll probably be faster than cars. There's always traffic jams.
