hotel made this an awesome holiday. the beaches are beautiful. barra da tijuca is the best beach because it is quiet. good for surfing but in places some strong currents flags are put in the places to mark out dangerous currents. good lifeguards. ipanima was an awesome beach but was really loud, still great fun, patrolled by helicopter every 15 minutes scanning the area for people out of their depth in the ocean. great watching people play volleyball, football volleyball and bat and ball over the nets. their really good. people were so friendly. one woman warned us to keep an eye on our possessions and came over to talk to us including to tell me to remember to wear sunscreen. both was helpful advice as never had anything stolen or victim of crime, so just the sunscreen. attractions were great. sugar loaf mountain, christ the redeemer, tjuca forest and the botanical garden we visited were great. some great holiday snaps. talking to locals was great always friendly and go out of their way to help you i.e. directions. we only discovered the shopping district next to the mall on the last few days which is great for buying nice clothes and shoes, as well as restaurants which we didn't try but there is a burger king that lets you top up your drink every 10 minutes. the water in the gym as well as by the pool was useful, no need to buy mineral water as was filtered and cool so you could just top up a bottle and take it with you. breakfast was good, digital cable, pool was amazing.

It was a great location. Near the beach, near a grocery store, lots of local restaurants... nothing was very far away -- USD15 got us to pretty much everywhere we wanted to go.
BUT - the pool is very small, there is no concierge service (they will book things for you, but they know nothing about anything to give you advice or suggestions), and the beach (swimming) was closed for several days because of large waves.

Modern hotel located just off Avenida Paulista and very close to the metro stop. Staff were lovely, excellent service including nice little touches like chocolates in the evening along with a note to tell you the next days weather forecast.
Breakfast was fantastic, with everything you'd need, hot options like sausages, eggs, pancakes, cold meats, cheeses, lots of fruit, even a Japanese section with miso soup and salmon!
The fitness centre was very well equipped too.
Would definitely stay here again!

Everything was good. Room a little dated but clean and tidy. Very good buffet breakfast. Evening buffet in the restaurant was also extremely good and great value compared to other places we visited in Brazil. Tour desk was really useful and the staff were helpful to organize outings and transfers to the falls etc. Good shopping mall a short walk away, with pharmacy, supermarket, ATMs etc.
