Stunning view of Copacabana!!!

Durham, United Kingdom

I checked in at around 7pm and was greeted by a very friendly member of staff at reception. I had booked a superior top floor room as I wanted a balcony and had done a lot of research on this prior to travelling, on arrival I was advised that I had been upgraded to a Deluxe Panoramic room...wow I was not disappointed, I had my glass of fizz in my hand on entering the room I noticed that it was very spacious!! I was helped with my luggage by the porter and went straight to the window where I had the most amazing view from the 19th floor of Copacabana Beach..it took my breath away!! Everything about the hotel is great, breakfast was amazing so much to choose from and again sat sipping my glass of fizz whilst gazing out over copacabana!!! Roof top pool is nice and quiet with great views and good cocktails and light bites. I booked my journey back to the airport through the hotel and felt very safe and secure doing this as a solo female... Well done PortoBay..I will be back someday!! Amazing staff, location and breakfast and its own little spot on the beach complete with loungers and towels and a caiprinha or two if you want!!!

Great hotel right on Copacabana beach!

Salt Lake City, Utah

This hotel is the perfect place to call home during your trip in Rio. It is perfectly located near the famous Copacabana Palace hotel. The lobby is beautiful. Pool on the top floor is smallish, but the views are great and there is a great bar. And the restaurant has a fantastic buffet breakfast. We were on the 14th floor with partial ocean view, but i thought it was perfect as the partial ocean view gives you a view both of Copacabana beach and O Cristo Redentor statue, which is really beautiful at night. When we get back to Rio this would be a top pick hotel for me.
