I was in Rio for the Caixa Marathon and stayed for one night at this 5-star hotel. What a disappointment! Check-in time at 3 pm and check out the following day at 12 noon sharp, no late check-out allowed, which means I paid an outrageous daily rate of around USD 300 for a 21-hour stay at a very basic no...

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying at Sheraton Barra in your trip to Rio de Janeiro and for sharing your opinion at Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we could not offer a late check out in the day you requested. We always try to manage these requests, however that day, the hotel was sold out, and we could not offer extension in...

I am on the last leg of a 90 day around the world trip (see my blog: "www.toscanoworldtrip.blogspot.com). My last stop before returning to the USA is Rio de Janeiro. I was looking for a nice hotel and unfortunately picked the Sheraton Barra. I was there 3 nights and it was so bad that my wife did not even unpack...

It is a ice hotel, well located in Barra. Barra is far from Rio downtown and main touristic atraction, you will need a good hour tomreach sugar loaf, corcovado, ipanema, etc.. But you will have the tranquility of staying in a nice area with a good beach.

This Sheraton has a nice design, which gives all rooms an ocean view. There is also a balcony for all rooms. In addition, they offered us free breakfast (full buffet with a lot of choices, not the continental kind) for the duration of our stay because we are gold members of the SPG, their frequent stayer program. It sits next...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks on a business trip. This is without doubt the poorest 5 star hotel I have ever stayed in and the worst value for money too. Had I not been staying here on company money I would have ended my stay prematurely. For £500 (walk-in rate for their mid tier room) a night...

Nice hotel with expected ammenities for this standard. Their lunch buffets are quite pricey but certainly worth the money. Their cocktails are also great especialy the Caprioska!! Liked the quiet location and minutes from the fabulous golden beach - across the rd!!. I'll be returning :)

Hotels in Rio are generally mediocre both in terms of the hard product which is old and run down(unlike let's say the amazing Hyatt at Sao Paulo) and hospitality is generally mediocre. Cariocas seem to take it for granted that tourist will show up and pay through the nose to stay in the "marvelous city". Since there are no Starwood,...

Why? because the club lounge is ridiculous in size and offers limited selection of canapés, the rooms often smell of damp, wifi connection in the room, VERY slow and cost around 15 euro / day. Decent overall but the excessive cost (average 300/350 USD) it penalizes further. Because of the limited availability of Hotel in Barra is...

This place is bad. Dirty and smelly rooms, in bad need of renovation. Poor service and wifi is lower than most places. Gives a bad name to Sheraton worldwide, a shame given the beautiful views and location by the beach. Stay away.
