Excellent location. Staff were generally nice and professional. Views from hotel pool and dinning area were great and hotel food was good. Room AC thermostat cut off in the middle of night making eoom unbearably hot and affecting our ability to sleep through the night. Never not been able to sleep in a hotel before especially not a pricy international hotel like this. Guests not given the option to regulate room temperature thenselves despite locating a thenrmostat in the room. Check out also charged more. Had we not caught the mistake they woukd have charged us double rate per night.

Great stay, beautiful views and tasty caipirinhas
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our stay in Rio. This is a gorgeous hotel in a fantastic location. I am a gold awards member but was not offered any upgrades, but the room we got was great and the early check in and late check out was fantastic. The hotel offers many additional services, like cocktail making and beach tennis to name a couple. The cocktail making class was amazing, I learned how to make a true Brazilian caipirinha and ended up having 5 cocktails! - Antonio did a fantastic job, guided us through the process, a very worthwhile experience. The setting is perfect, the music and atmosphere in the 6th floor area was nice, and each night I found myself having a few cocktails at the bar… nothing a run along the Copacabana the next day couldnt sort. The hotel had a private beach area, my girlfriend and I went there for sunset only to be told that it shut at 5pm :( - I was quite disssppointed as I took out my professional camera and thought it would be safe but I had to go and put it back to my room as Rio can be quite dangerous unfortunately.
