We were very pleased with our first experience at the Copacabana Palace. Everything was first class from check in to check out. The staff were excellent, our suite with ocean view was wonderful as promised, spacious and well maintained. We also enjoyed the restaurants on the premises throughout our stay, great service and great meals. The buffet breakfast was a terrific way to start the day overlooking the pool. We look forward to returning to the Copacabana Palace on our next trip to Rio.
I traveled to Rio de Janeiro alone to celebrate my birthday for five days . I picked this hotel because of the location and all the great reviews. Everything was perfect . The staff was amazing , especially Nelio, very attentive and very professional. They even brought me a gift for my birthday, it was a piece of cake in a really adorable wrap. I was really surprised and happy to have gotten it . The hotel staff was wonderful about helping me catch taxis and advising me on where to go and party. Id learned from the reviews that the rooms were pretty small , so I got an executive suite and was still alil surprised at how small it was . My ocean view from my hotel room was gorgeous, so it made up for the size of the room . Breakfast each morning was my favorite, especially because they offer endless mimosas, and they knew to keep them coming for me ! Lol . I really truly enjoyed myself, my only complaint , is that I didn't stay at least another two days. I would totally recommend this hotel to everyone , especially first timers to Rio!!! I never felt unsafe or worried one time.
What can I say apart from fabulous. Location is really good and the locals very helpful and friendly. It really helps if you try to have a go with their language. Hotel offers free towels and parasol for the beach. The beach is not far from the hotel and it is so beautiful and clean.
"Good well appointed hotel in excellent location. "
Good hotel, perhaps not 5 star in some respects. Found the reception staff to be rather aloof. When my room key did not work on third day, they issued a new one but no apology for the inconvenience, etc. Seemed they were doing you a service rather than the opposite. Bar service was rather slow although offered a wicked "Kir". Restaurant on ground floor was excellent. Concierges were very helpful.

Great trip and fantastic helpful hotel staff. Andrea on reception is a credit to the hotel. As are the front reception, restuarant staff and maids. Loved first visit in November 2015 was back in Rio Feb 2016 and chose same hotel for closeness to beach and restaurants and hotel staff who were always so helpful.
"Comfortable hotel very well located in Copacabana "
Nice hotel. Althought he rooms are not big, they are comfortable. Excellent individual A/C (quite important at Rio de Janeiro). Great Breakfast of a 4-Stars hotel. Excellent WiFi. I will definitely stay there again. Nice roof and Gym.
This famous beach is also the widest beach in Rio. Throngs of bikini- and Speedo-clad locals and tourists take in the sun, as well as a round of beach soccer and volleyball. Copacabana Beach is a popular venue for concerts and a spectacular New Year’s Eve celebration where partiers wear white for good luck. The glitzy shops and cafés along Avenida Atlântica provide a welcome respite from the heat.
