Great hotel!

Keswick, United Kingdom

We stayed at the Porto Bay hotel for a total of five nights. This was split into two segments as the hotel was sadly fully booked for one of the evenings. So we stayed into two different rooms. One on the 6th floor and one on the 12th. Both rooms were pretty much the same. Good size room. Large bed and a great size bathroom with a large shower and complimentary toiletries. The rooms are very clean and the bedding and towels were clean and fresh. The staff at the hotel make it stand above others. The reception team are great and are very accommodating. I wish I could remember their names. But Thallis, the gent with the braces and the two girls are brilliant. Isaias who mans the beach chairs is so polite and friendly. He will try his hardest to make your time on Copacabana the best it can be. All the guests seemed to love him! The pool area is beautiful and you get some great views over the area. They utilise the space very well. Obviously for the size of the hotel and the small roof space they have. You’re going to struggle to get a sunbed if your not up there early and all day. Tharso one of the private drivers who provides a private car service for the hotel was brilliant. He is so friendly, extremely knowledgeable and keeps a great car! Would highly recommend him for any day tours or airport pick ups and drop offs. The only thing I would take as a negative is the charge for ice buckets. This is the first place I’ve ever stayed where you have to pay for ice.

Perfect ending to the vacation

Stavanger, Norway

Excellent experience from the welcome drink at check in and until check out. The room was not ready for check in, but we were told we could have a caiprinha on the house at the rooftop bar while we waited, which was a nice way to handle the situation. The room was large, the view was alright and the balcony was useful. Breakfast was also excellent, with available ingredients for DIY Mimosas! The service was excellent, from the rooftop restaurant, the breakfast team, front desk and bellmand and to the beach service. The only comment was that on the day we were checking out there was a sound of a lot of water flowing in the wall, however, that had not been there for the period we were there, but might have been annoying in the long run. After a few hours it disappeared. The room we got had a bathtub and a shower in the bath tub. This could be a bit difficult to get in and out of. Not a problem for us, but might be for some guests. All in all it was a perfect ending to our stay in Brazil, and would definitely like to stay here again when we return.
