Great location, Amazing stay and great staff
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The PortoBay Rio International Hotel is in a great location across the street from the Copacabana beach. It within walking distance to restaurants, Rio Sul shopping mall, attractions, stores, bus stops, train. Check in is usually scheduled for 2pm, however we arrived earlier as our flight from the United States arrived at 8 am we arrived at the hotel by 11:30 am, if you are willing to be patient the hotel staff will try to accomodate you. Antonio assisted us during check-in as well as check out, he was very friendly and professional, a great asset to the hotel staff. The hotel staff is friendly and always wiling to assist and answer any questions. It's worth getting the breakfast included rate, the food is fresh and delicious, both hot and cold. While eating beakfast you can enjoy the amazing view of Copacabana beach. The hotel also has a roof top pool, bar and gym. Amazing veiw of Copacabana beach as well. Our room had a balcony with a partial view of the beach, but still amazing. Our room was comfortable and always clean when we returned. Overall the PortoBay Rio is a great hotel with an amazing staff and we definately recommend this hotel.

Won us over, despite the minor imperfections
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This hotel has a few rough edges, but it does so much well we wound up loving it. Our 11th-floor room had panoramic views of Copacabana Beach that we never tired of gazing at. The rooftop bar boasts even better views, but the pool was way too chilly for swimming (in early June). The dinner room views are better still, and the breakfast spread was impressive. The staff was uniformly friendly, and the sweet receptionist even noticed (unprompted) that it was my birthday, so I found some pastry and good wishes in our room that evening. Against all that, what’s so bad about failing to have enough towel racks and hooks? (Though that would seem to be something that could be added without too much expense.)

Good location and friendly staffs

Just across from the beach and walking distance to restaurants, shopping malls, attractions and stores.

Room is clean and comfortable, staffs are friendly and helpful. I have a room on the side, still able to see some beach from the balcony.

Great experience

The view from our veranda is wonderful. Location is awesome. Staff are friendly. Bedroom can be better as we pay more for the upper class. Some dirty spots on the wall in the bedroom and on the couch in the living area. Overall is wonderful and will recommend to anyone.

The best @Copacabana

My mom and I just love this hotel. We had a fantastic time in this hotel and in Rio. Not only because of the location on Copacabana beach but also the service! The staff deserves a great WOW! And this is from the frontdesk to the bellboy to the cleaning ladies to the poolguys to the manager etc, just everybody that works here is so friendly and always has a genuine smile. All the staff is wonderful, they work so hard to make your stay incredible and stress free. We got the best tips for tours and restaurants from Rhianne, Antonio and Sacha! Our room had a great view of the Copacabana and other beaches! The food is very good @the pool and @the restaurant. Next visit to Rio I’ll be staying @PortoBay for 1000%!
