Among the Best Hotel in Copacabana
Posted Mar 7, 2016
This is a well-known hotel which has done a lot of upgrading and facelifting before 2014 FIFA Worldcup, and it shows. I have stayed many times in this hotel and it is my favorite other than JW Marriott (a more American friendly hotel) at Copacabana. The guest room is always bigger than other 5-star hotels in Copacabana. Very spacious room and the the feel of luxury. It is across from the beach, however, this hotel has the nicest pool that few can match in Copacabana. The pool service is excellent. I actually enjoy the pool more than the beach.
The staff is younger now and better trained, and appeared to be less snobby than 5-6 years ago under Orient Express ownership.. I love the breakfast included in the Pergula restaurant which serves the best breakfast buffet I always enjoyed, lots of fruits. I notice from time to time a staff would inspect all the food for the temperature. Great QAQC.
I tried the Mee restaurant with oriental theme. I think it's OK food-wise based on its price, though atmosphere and ambiance are quite nice. The service was great and attentive.
If I am on a leisure trip, I would pick Copacabana Palace.

Thank you very much for sharing your amazing experience. The details display that you enjoyed your stay very much. It is applicable to mention that the ownership remains the same. It was just a brand name alteration.
All the best,
