Like being on a cruise ship...

The hotel is becoming a cruise ship hotel which deducted from its charm. We were staying up to the carnival and the full occupancy affected food service at the pool restaurant

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Property is iconic, but Rio de Janeiro is a broke down city now, not even close to its days 20 years ago. Water pollution and contamination everywhere. What happened to this great beach resort. Direct Flight great though to a slum unfortunately.

Stayed 7 nights in Feb 2020
