Outstanding location. Very nice view of ocean if you are lucky enough to land an ocean-view room. Only thing missing is a concierge service.

Room for improvement, overpriced, wouldnt recomend
Mixed feelings about this hotel (we stayed in 10 hotels in our brazil trip from 100 a night to 650 a night and it was during carnival so our expectations were adjusted. Note we paid 500 a night to stay here in a ocean view room but would say for that kind of money you are better off staying in the belmond which was 600 for ocean view. The good. View was nice, good location to walk around ipanema beach, service from SOME staff was good. If you pay 100 a night for the room then its good value. The bad. Paid 500 a night for ocean view and you dont even get free water. The rooftop view was nice but the pool is basically a large bath so not really enjoyable. ocean view also had people partying all through the night on the beach (they were there till 12pm the next day) so sleeping was difficult. Front of house staff were hit and miss for service and were quite confusing. The worse bit for me was breakfast. You can have on the rooftop or on the pier which is nicer to sit and people watch. We went to sit down for breakfast, had to wait atleast 10 minutes just to speak to someone as the restaurant also serves the public (never had to queue to go for breakfast in a hotel), when we finally got to someone we were told it was a 30 min wait as there are many names on the list (from non hotel guests) and that i should go to the rooftop for exclusive breakfast. This to me is unacceptable that a hotel guest paying 500 a night should have to get in line with others that just rock up that day

The very best part of the my whole stay was the friendliness of the staff. They were so attentive and friendly despite some language barriers. And I meen ALL the staff, from the front desk to the waiters and security guards. The restaurant t was spectacular. We wanted to eat there every day. The pool wasn’t very big but it had spectacular views. I would deffinately stay there again
