Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Great location
Great location. Good breakfast. Clean and comfortable rooms. Thin walls. Soft beds. The pool needs to be cleaned better, especially the glass around it.

Great place to stay in Ipanema!
Hotel was very clean. Employees were helpful. Many added features to make you as secure as possible (unmarked keys, key work on your floor only, alarms if you leave door open). Great showers, comfy bed. Block from the beach.

Good 6,0
Good place, not so family friendly
The rooms were very nice, comfortable and clean, the breakfast buffet was great. The rooftop bar and pool are amazing. What drove down my rating was 1) the inaccessibility to the hotel by car on Sunday pm, when we had to park 2 blocks away and walk down the side walk with luggage, kids and all; and 2) the lengthy check in process again with small kids and all.

Service was great, and hotel is very clean. The location was good too. What could be better was breakfast - juices were not fresh and natural and food in general was not great.
