The huge room with huge balcony overlooking the sea
The staff was very very slow, having us wait a long time, while attending other guests before giving us the key. They would not allow us to grab any food to go to the airport before the actual breakfast time. A little far from everything. The beach right in front is for teenagers from 12-18.
The staff were helpful and polite. Also the breakfast meal was freshly prepared.
The facilities appear a bit run down.
Great location in Barra da Tijuca! Super friedly staff! Very big room. Nice breakfast, continental with amazing brasilian fruit! In the room plugs type C and N. Splendid view on the ocean from my suite!
The room was very humid and smelly.
The breakfast provided was ok. Besides that, the view is amazing, especially early morning.
First of all, I was very disappointed with the previous place I booked and had to move to this one trying to enjoy the last days of my vacation with my girlfriend. I booked for a penthouse. When I arrived in the hotel, I was informed that it was not available because of water leakage and, due to that, I would sleep in a normal apartment but would be moved to the penthouse next day. The fact is: I was moved but not to my penthouse. At the end, I didn’t have the penthouse and when I complained about it with the “manager”, he did not show any sign of empathy, talking in a bad tone with customers and not giving a considerable compensation due to the chaos of his business its embarrassment. I could also notice a total lack of effective communication among the staff in such a disorder. Because of this whole stress, my nervous system got affected and I got sick, wasting one whole day of my vacation in bed. Unfortunately, it was my girlfriend’s very first time in Brazil and we had to leave it with such a negative experience. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone!
The Geraldo service was very good!
The breakfast could be better
