Location location location

View, rooftop pool, breakfast
We really enjoyed our two day stay at the Porto Bay. The location is fantastic, directly on Copacabana beach. The hotel has its own beach location with loungers and drinks available. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cooked and fresh fruit and bread and pastries. The rooms were fantastic with a side Seaview. I would definitely stay here again. The rooftop pool and restaurant really provided a breathtaking view of Rio.

Great location and nice beach view

Location, good breakfast and friendly front dest staff
Clean room, nice breakfast and great view. Friendly and efficient front desk staff. Hotel restaurant food quality is so so but not too expensive. Overall high room rate does not match the quality of the facility. I would hesitate to recommend this place to my friends. I guess we pay for the location (if one spends lots of time on the beach, may be worth the price?)

"Great location but not 5 star"

The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull at the front desk however the hotel is 3star at its best. The floors in the room are wooden and therefore noise was an issue if furniture was moved in the room above,the walls are are thin as discussions in the adjioning rooms could easily be heard within the room. As you cant drink the water no complimentary water was left in the room and the tiolet in the bathroom was to close to the wall you had to sit side on to use it and I am not a big person. The towels which were originally white were very greyish in colour and certainly in need of replacement.There was no iron in the room and when requested from the housemaid I was told that I had to use the pressing service which was very expensive. The sideview from the room was limited to the beachfront of 100 metres and for the money paid was poor value for money.The two passanger lifts were very small and could only accomdate about 5 normal size people. I would not stay here again!

Great location great service minded staf

The roof top bar and pool was spectacular
The hotel was on the top list at Agoda and the reason we booked this hotel. Now we know why it was on the top list. The room was nice tidy and clean and fresh. The roof top bar was amazing, the breakfast was very nice. All the staff was service minded and very helpful during the whole stay.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Jesus Christ and the suger top.

as usual the best hotel in rio

Location - location and good rooms....
I just love coming to this hotel - the hotel is big enough to feel big, but small enough that the crew are the same, and they know you every year you get back... Only thing needing an upgrade is the internet, which still is to slow...
