This hotel was perfectly situated on Copacabana Beach. Plenty of shops and grocery stores and places to eat right there. Public transport as well as taxi's just outside the door. Hotel staff were very pleasant and accommodating - always available to recommend, suggest or guide you. Very helpful! They offer you the use of luggage storage for free all day if your departure is late at night and also allow you to use the gym showers and change room to get ready! We would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend to everyone we know.

Right on Copacabana beach, the Arena offers you a breathtaking view over the beach. If you prefer Ipanema, it would take just …More
Buffet breakfast the best I have ever seen. Room was small but very clean and comfortaable. Bathroom could have used a line in the shower to hang wet bathing suits. Pool small but very pretty and the view is stunning.
We picked the perfect place to end our vacation. Beautiful, clean, and well taken care of.
Our flights got canceled because of a storm back home and Robinson, as well as the women at the front desk worked with us for literally hours, making phone calls and translating as we struggled with the airlines and figuring out how we were getting home. It was annoying because they were busy checking people in and out but they were so patient and helpful.
Finally, after all is said and done and our flights figured out for late the next evening Robinson hooked us up with another night stay for a discounted rate so we didn't have to move to a cheaper hotel.
We love Pestana!
Everything about this hotel was fantastic. They didn't have my +gold status on the reservation but when I asked they were able to find it and give me a wonderful upgrade. The restaurants were all phenomenal (we had the Chef's Table - a must do!) and we also booked a half day tour (excellent) and cars to and from the airport. Everything was perfect. Pool was beautiful and relaxing, and location superb. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to return soon!
The pool was not nearly what it looked like in pictures and we didn't use it at all, but everything else was great. Room was good, staff was helpful, and they provide free chairs and umbrellas at the beach. We were really happy with our stay and would come back again. Breakfast was by far the best included breakfast we had on our whole trip through south america.
I love the rooftop pool and the services they provided at the beach. Breakfast was excellent and im more than happy to come back here. Room service was outstanding and the people at the front desk spoke English very well for language barriers. Beautiful cleam place with a ocean view room what more could I ask for. I def recommend if you like to travel well.
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.
