A little piece of heaven in Rio
This hotel was WONDERFUL. It's sparkling brand new, fully modern, the staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. The location is amazing, you have Copacabana beach directly in front of you and Ipanema beach just a 10 min walk away. You can't beat the view from this pool! The cocktails and food at the restaurant are delicious and the gym is possibly the best hotel gym I've ever used. I hope to stay there again in the future!

Fantastic hotel
Amazing hotel in a great location between Ipanema and Copacabana. Facilities are fantastic - great breakfast, two good pools and top of the art gym. Highly recommend to stay here for your holiday in Rio.

Fair 4,0
Location is not great. Worse, the service is average at best, and the hotel is very expensive. The people who work here never missed an opportunity to ove-sell and underwhelm. Lousy service and very average food and beverage.

Fab hotel
Fab hotel, we travel a lot and have high expectations, but all were met here. Restuarant / bar location overlooking Copacabana superb. One thing - we stayed in a junior suite, which we found well worth it
Natasha, my4 night trip
Exceptional 10,0
There are not enough words to express how happy we were with our stay! The level of detail and attention to each and every thing was outstanding. Everyone who works there is so friendly and warm and kind - they truly want you to have the best stay. The pool and view was one of the best of all of Rio, the facilities were stunning. Poolside food was very reasonably priced. What really made our trip was our friend, vincenzo, at the concierge. He gave us the best recs for dinner and bars- everything was so tasty but also trendy and hip - venga, ARP, Astor, zuka, etc.
Madhu, us5 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10,0
Beautiful hotel. The views from the pool of the entire Copacabana beach are unparalleled. Excellent addition to include the choice of 2 pools at the front and back of the hotel to catch the sun all-day long. The staff are all exceptionally welcoming and do everything they can to make you feel at home. Weekends are great with live music in the outside bar for some light entertainment but it’s not at all intrusive if you don’t fancy it. Perfect location being at the crossroads of Copacabana and Ipanema beach: access to Copacabana beach is on your doorstep and Ipanema beach just a 3/4 minute walk away. Not something everyone will want on a vacation but also the gym is fantastic, huge space and all the equipment you need. The spa is also worth a trip if you need some down-time. This hotel is the real deal and I will be returning in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
