It doesn’t get much more iconic Rio than this: a contemporary, sexy hotel fronting one of the city’s most famous beaches, Copacabana, and within strolling distance of another, Ipanema. The 200-room Miramar offers butler service and pool and beach attendants on hand to cater to guests’ every vacation whim. The lobby restaurant, Sá, offers a primer in local Brazilian cuisine (Carioca, which is also the term for Rio’s inhabitants). Relax under an umbrella on the wide, sandy beach in front of the hotel, or retire to the rooftop to work out in the fitness center, sweat it out in the sauna or just laze with a caipirinha by the infinity pool.
In the Area
Drag yourself away from the beach to take in a performance at the magnificent Municipal Theater in nearby downtown Rio. This Belle Epoque opera house, modeled on the Paris Opera, offers a year-round program and daily guided tours. Indulge your carnivore instincts at a churrascaria, Brazil’s version of BBQ; the Ipanema branch of the famed Porcão Rio offers a groaning buffet of grilled meats that’s sure to hit the spot. After dark sample some of Rio’s famous nightlife, which encompasses everything from casual botequim (bars or cafés) to high-octane discos, many situated on Atlantica Avenue, within staggering distance of the hotel.
How to Get There
Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the mini bar had everything I could want for the weekend I stayed. The food was great. The bathroom could have been bigger.
And the pool and outside are was fine, nothing impressive
I would recommend a room with a view, it made the trip for me.
GREAT STAY!! I was skeptical of this because of the price (to good to be true) Well, to my surprise it was amazing!! great location, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! room a bit small but modern and clean! very up to date!! Close to all! Cant wait to return to Rio ! Thanks!!
This nice hotel at Copacabana has everything you need large rooms large bathrom with shower.
The kingsize bed is large and have good mattress and loads of pillows. A big screen tv is on the wall.
Tv does hardly have any English speaking channels and most movie channels are dubbed into Portuguese.
Breakfast is really good with a huge selections of food.
Roof top bar with eternity pool is also nice.
After a 12 hour delay, caused by United we arrived at the Windsor MiraMar Copacabana hotel. First thing we were welcomed with a smile from front desk staff, wow that felt good. Upon check in we were told we were being upgraded to a partial ocean view room, something we had not expected and then to top it off a welcome glass of champagne. What a way to start our vacation.
What can I say everything at the Miramar is amazing---attentive staff, delicious complimentary breakfast, towels, beach service and pool side service. I have to mention that the housekeeping staff was above and beyond! Our room was always extremely clean and the housekeeper even organized our toiletries for us, and at night provided turn down service with chocolates on our pillows.
We 100% recommend the Windsor Miramar Copacabana to anyone looking for an amazing stay with staff and management that go the extra mile--service with a smile. The hotel caters to business clients, so they know how to take care of their guests. Everytime we come to Rio we stay at the Miramar and now with their completed remodeling its topnotch. You can’t go wrong at this hotel!
We chose this hotel for the location which is right on Copacabana beach.
The twin room is clean and good quality with two large beds.
It was my friends birthday and the hotel kindly provided a cake in the room which was. A lovely touch. They also arranged a late check out for us at no extra cost and lent us a charger.
We did not choose the breakfast option but there are a number of nice options nearby.
Would definitely recommend this hotel
