Excellent service, grandiose beauty in Barra area
Reviewed 2 days ago

The check in process was very fast and efficient, they let me checked in earlier than 3pm check in time since my flight arrived before noon. The lobby was grandiose, pool was nice, Spa and Fitness center was clean with very friendly Instructor Zavra. My room was quite spacious, bathroom, toilet and bathtub were immaculately clean. The food at Shiso and Quiosque ( pool
Service ) were delectable. Although some hotel staff may have a language barrier and dont understand English but they refer me to the other staff who are English speaking. This hotel has a beach access at the front door but Barra Beach. It is not the party place beach like Ipanema or Copacabana. So whenever I want to relax by the Barra beach they provide towels and lounge chairs too. Ipanema or Copacabana is 20min drive by Uber. There are few restaurants in these area so it is a bit hard to have a lot of food options. I might come back to Rio and stay for couple nights here again.

Not a 5 star experience
Reviewed 2 days ago

Dirty, unhelpful staff, far from the city, very expensive. I wouldn’t stay at this hotel again given the other options available in the area. It was not a 5 star experience at all. I have had better experiences at a 3 star hotel.

Lovely looking
Reviewed 1 week ago

There are some gorgeous aspects to this hotel...its funky clean lines beautiful pool...the apothecary is just lovely and worth visit to buy gifts...the stairway back up to ground level is just gorgeous.
There is a lovely member of staff who greets you at the entrance to the restaurant but we didn't catch her name...which is a pity as she was wonderful.
The rooms are comfy...make sure you buy your coffee in the lobby for the nice coffee machine in your room.
The downsides...there are 2 new buildings going up next to.the pool the noise is unbearable...they dont work weekends. The bedroom windows need more glazing as there is an airport nearby and there are lots of flights going straight over the hotel which disturbed us.
If possible it is nice to have a lagoon
View.

Stolen property and flies in restaurant
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed in ocean view suite. The bathroom was not cleaned. Dirty toilet and tub. Television and remote not working. When these issues was reported the staff was annoyed. I had an item stolen.... when I notified the manager there was nothing done...This property is a disgrace to the brand ‘

Excellent Rio hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Though located in Barra, this hotel is directly across the street from the best beach in Rio de Janeiro. The hotel itself is my new favorite in Rio. The rooms were super clean and comfortable and included all of the amenities you would expect in a hotel of this calibre. The beds were just perfect. I chose the lagoon view and I'm glad I did. The wrap-around balcony made for perfect sunset views and even the chairs on the balcony were comfortable.

The spa was awesome, clean and modern. The pools are nice and uncrowded with plenty of lounge chairs to go around. And the beach is staffed with attendants offering chairs and towels.

But it's the people who make the hotel special, from the front desk clerks, to the valets to the restaurant staff. Every person was very helpful and friendly. When I first checked in I got lost looking for the executive lounge. The general manager noticed I was lost, stopped and offered his help in finding the lounge -- he even made me a coffee personally; taking the time to talk about the property and offering sight-seeing suggestions. It's this kind of attention to detail that sets the Grand Hyatt miles ahead of other Rio hotels. I'll be returning for sure.
