8/10 Very good

I loved it's location and the pool was nice too. Good rates for where it is too. Bar staff and breakfast staff were great, some of the reception staff were rude, unhelpful and not very welcoming, especially on my first day of arrival. Email sent in advance asking for early check in due to super early flight was ignored until the first evening after i mentioned i had sent one. No facilities avaliable for early arrival or late check out i.e. appropriate private shower facilities and cafe for simple coffee or juice. Breakfast hot meals were not very diverse, the same every day and were too heavy for my tastes.

Great location . You are right in between Copacabana and Ipanema with easy access to Leblon and the lagoon. Great people , friendly staff. I would come back here anytime

6/10 Good

This property is ‘too corporate’. No vibe or energy, for a place on Ipanema beach. Small rooms, no fresh juices in the morning, except Orange Juice. Would not recommend…
