The location of the hotel and the staff really made this stay an amazing one for my birthday. The food, especially breakfast, was great. We appreciated the welcome glass of sparkling wine and every effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We arrived early and were allowed to check in, beach service was organized and friendly, room amenities on the 16th floor suite were great. It's a moderately sized hotel, with a boutique feel. The pool looked great, but I stuck to the beach. The lobby is grand and had the smell of a spa... Spa services are limited, it's really just a sauna and a small room for massages (my masseuse was late and I didn't get a full hour). There seemed to be some construction going on in the room above me, with periodic noise and one instance of paint fumes coming through the vents.

We ask for a room with a balcony and view of the ocean, it was stunning. The bed was a king size, great shower, the food was excellent we had the breakfast in their restaurant(beautiful view of copacabana)and dinner by the pool on the 20th floor some amazing views. Would add some usb charges in the light and maybe on the desk like some hotels have to make it easier for changing cellphones and electronics. The staff was outstanding! Would definitely return.

My 10 day stay was overall okay. I'd like to point out a few things so customers can know prior to booking. Construction is still happening & gym access isnt freely available at the moment & the pool is really small. There is a very obvious mildew smell everywhere in the hotel including the in room closets so if you put your clothes in there It'll cause your clean clothes to smell like mildew. Sleeping in is nearly impossible since the cleaning lady will loudly complain about being unable to clean your room right outside your door. I was jet lagged & tired my first few days so I wanted to sleep in, just to be woken up by loud arguing. Also walls are paper thin so youll hear your neighbors. There was an incident where a man entered my room without my consent, i was napping & heard a knock on the door, as I was getting up he opened the door and was about to walk inside. He was startled to see i was inside, then asked me something about the mini bar. I said no & he left. Doors do not have a door guard or additional lock, meaning anyone w/ card access can access your room which is scary. So 2 people acess your room, housekeeping in the afternoon & a guy that checks the minibar at any random time, he came by once at 11am & a different day around 3pm. Other times I was away from my room. I never touched anything inside the minibar so it was pointless for him to keep going in to check, there should be a different system in place. Front desk staff & hotel location are great.
