Positive Reviews

Breakfast boost

Guests rave about the hotel's breakfast, which one can obtain through room service or the on-site buffet Marapendi Restaurant.

Safety zone

The hotel is in a very safe area of Rio de Janeiro, which many guests praise. The facilities are well lit, and because the hotel is close to the beach, guests feel comfortable and protected in this area, more so than in downtown Rio.

Spectacular views

The ocean view is a must-have for several guests, but those who do not get this option can expect a view of the mountains that is considered by many to be just as breathtaking.

Negative Reviews

Too far from fun

Despite being close to the beach, the hotel is around thirty minutes driving distance away from many of the local tourist sights. A number of guests are frustrated by this distance, as many hope to book a room in the heart of Rio.

Rude staff

Unfortunately, guests often complain about the general rudeness of the staff, especially at the front desk. Often, visitors feel that they aren't well accommodated when they arrive or leave the hotel, and the times in between don't include many smiles or glowing recommendations either.

No adapters

The hotel does not provide adapters in the rooms for guests who need to plug in their electronics. Although adapters are available for purchase, one may want to come prepared with a few.
