Great location and staff. There was a strong mildew smell, possibly due to proximity of the ocean. Very humid in room despite air conditioner Wall paper tearing off the wall, room need to be remodeled.
Beautiful hotel, with great view of the beach, friendly staff, nice location. I really had a nice time in this hotel. There are two pools...one on the 4th floor and a heated one on the 39th floor overlooking Copacobana beach with a full bar and breathtaking views. I used the physical fitness facilities which were quite modern. The staff was very helpful. The hotel changed money easily and with a good rate. I would return.

Splendid location, superb staff, great food. The check in is very efficient and friendly. The executive floor facilities are fantastic. The staff speak most of the top languages in addition to the native Portuguese: English, French, and Spanish.... What can I say?
Excellent for everything, Beach,shopping,restaurants, banks etc. Our first time in Rio and thanks to the Mar Palace, it's a place to visit again. The staff were really friendly, at the end of our stay one of the restaurant staff came over to say goodbye.
I booked this hotel based on recent reviews and I was not disappointed at all! The staff were super friendly and were fluent in English and Spanish, which helped a lot since I only knew basic Portuguese.
The room was much bigger than I expected, and location was super convenient: Couple blocks away from the subway station (to go to Maracana on match day) and Copacabana beach.
This famous beach is also the widest beach in Rio. Throngs of bikini- and Speedo-clad locals and tourists take in the sun, as well as a round of beach soccer and volleyball. Copacabana Beach is a popular venue for concerts and a spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration where partiers wear white for good luck. The glitzy shops and cafés along Avenida Atlântica provide a welcome respite from the heat.
