“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

The Fasano, RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE BEACH, is lovely and the staff is incredible. They arranged private tours and reservations at the best places in town. The food from the restaurant was great, and the rooms (while a touch small and oddly shaped) were always clean and comfortable. The area couldn't be nicer, and I highly recommend it. The pool is, needless to say, incredible.

We spent five nights at Hotel Fasano over Christmas. it was absolutely fantastic. The location is perfect. The pool deck and view are stunning. The service was terrific - from Julia and Max at the concierge desk (who went out of their way every time we spoke to them and were warm and welcoming) to the front desk staff (shout-out to Brito who bent over backwards to be sure we enjoyed our stay) to the pool crew. The staff helped us with everything from restaurant reservations, to bicycle rentals, to tour guides (ask for Marco, he was fantastic) to picking up medicine at the drug store and delivering it to our room.

We've travelled all over the world and have been lucky enough to stay in some of the best hotels and the Fasano is right up there on every count.

A few more things...

-The ocean-front rooms are worth the extra money, they're bigger and the views are amazing; we had one of each, one "courtyard" and one ocean-front and there is a significant difference
-The beach is lovely although it gets crowded - there is great beach service via the hotel (chairs, water, umbrellas)
-Nothing is cheap - if you are price-sensitive this isn't the hotel for you
-The experience - the hotel and Rio in general - for our family at least, was priceless

And don't forget you need a visa to travel to Brazil from the US! We had friends who had to cancel their trip because they didn't get visas. Ugh.

Looking forward to a return visit to Rio and to the Fasano.

In Rio de Janeiro there are two hotels top level: Fasano in Ipanema and Copacabana Palace in Copacabana. The best location is Ipanema, smaller, safer, nicer. Fasano is brand new, well designed, stilish, modern, hip, trendy. Small rooms, maybe overpriced, but forget it, you are in the best place of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Compared to this money is nothing. The swimming pool on 8th floor rooftop is remarcable, it leaves you breathless.

This hotel has a wonderful location right on Ipanema beach. The front desk was welcoming, wonderful in fact. A basket of fresh fruit awaited which was a relief after a long flight. The room had a terrible view however (of a back alley, into a courtyard) which is the only negative. The hotel explained they were full to capacity which is completely understandable.

Horrible management!
As soon as we arrived we were denied uor automatic upgrade due to FHR program; based on no availability.... I was able to book an upgraded room online 30 min after arriving.
Mr. Francis at the front desk/Concierge will make you feel ready to go home, or start your vacations somewhere else.
Of Course I already notified FHR program to review their policies and contract with Fasano.
The Concierge service at this hotel is practically non-existent; Was told that they were unable to book dinner at a nearby restaurants; we showed up at the restaurant , by the time we wanted the reservation,and were seated in 5 minutes and the maitre told us no one from Fasano called before.
All the service,wait staff are great; more helpful than front desk and management with a very few exceptions.
Come for the location and view if staying on a waterview room, the sunset from the pool is fantastic; Mr Diego at the pool bar was able to dissipate the bad taste from the experience with a fantastic caipirinha!
This Hotel should look into re-arrange some of its management team; such a design gem and a superb location do deserve a more suitable supervisory personal staff.

Room Tip: Arrange with their website, confirm your room, do not count on upgrades done by FHR or Black Amex...

I always stay here. I come to rio at least once a year. The view from the pool is great. The music in bareto londra the hotels bar is fantastic. I love it. (house music) but this hotels provides generally poor service and is still succesful because the hotel choice in rio is so limited. The pool staff are great. Everyone else hardly says hello. We had a sea view room, its nice but small. As i said, normally i stay here because the choices are so bad in this city, but this time i split my stay between here and copacabana palace. Once u visit copacabana palace u realise how u have been treated like a mug at the fasano, so poor service is not just a brazilian thing. The service does not compare. Yes location is not as good but get a cab. Fasano is a hotel where they dont care if u enjoy ur stay. The food is expensive and awful. The cocktails are the same and the icing on the cake is charging for wifi. Go have a coffee in a small cafe in brazil its free. Go to a pousada (guest house) on a remote island its free. At fasano? No way. These guys could get blood from a stone. I dont mind paying money for something thats worth it but i hate been ripped off and i always get this feeling here. Im leaving copacabana palace today on top of the world. Next time il be staying at CP for sure. I recomend u do the same.

Location is perfect with a beautiful view of the rooftop pool overlooking the Ipanema beach. Beautiful rooms, stylish yet functional. Very comfortable bed. I was most impressed with the housekeeping. I checked in very late at 11 pm and basically was in a hurry to open my luggage. Dropped it somewhere in the middle of the room. The next day it was arranged in a much better location so that I can walk into my ocean front suite with an uninstructed view. So thoughtful! The staff at the reception and concierge were friendly, formal but not in a stuffy way. The restaurant fasano al mare is not that good but I must say the beauty of the room is worth a visit. Very impressed!
