Really nice hotel, it depends which way you want to look at this hotel. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the direct main centre, bad from a perspective if you want to be in the middle of it all but good for peace and quiet. For me it was great, good quality hotel with large rooms and great...

The room is excellent , the hotel facilities including pool and prívate beach are similar to those top quality caribbean resorts. The only issue is that you are away from le blon beach and the activity around. During the day is a short walk, but at night I think is risky for Security reasons. However in a taxi or Uber...

Wow! American style just 11 minutes walk from Leblon. Incredible pools, 4 restaurants, 3 bars and an insane (almost private) beach makes this hotel number one option for a nice relaxing vacations. You can choose between the classic hotel bar or signature Javier de las Muelas Dri Martini Bar. French, Italian, Brazilian and Pizza restaurants. You can play tennis, basketball...

Having taken a red-eye flight from the US, we checked in in the morning because we were leaving the next day at 4:30 am. Our room was available, but they charged us for 2 days because official check-in time is 3 pm. Rooms have been refurbished, probably for the 2016 Olympics, but the details don't quite work: tiny closet, crooked...

My overall feeling about this hotel is one of disappointment. Having heard really positive reviews of this hotel, I was highly anticipating my stay, unfortunately it did not nearly live up to expectations. Having travelled to almost 13 different countries in the last year and staying at an array of SPG hotels, this one ranks the worst. It is truly...
