          nice location which is across the beach

          it is a high end area no budget restaurants in walking distance

        • Couple

          Good location. Good communication with the center of the city. Convenient hotel. Good breakfast.

          1) It is written about Preferred Room: "room is located on a higher floor, offering panoramic sea views." In reality floor could be 8 of 15 and no panoramic view at all. 2) At check-in clerk said that breakfast is not included in the price. For any questions contact Booked.net...

          I thought Sheraton was a Luxurious hotel and the price really leads us to this...But It is nothing but a tourist class very expensive hotel. Dirty, smelling mold at all places, rooms, elevators, spa, pool,aisle, lobby, etc. the furniture is disassembling and your belongs fall down on the floor. The breakfast is a nightmare: dirty, poor qualified personnel, low quality food. We booked 2 rooms, one through Booked.net and the other locally. The service for the classic room locally booked was much more improved and with more amenities than the preferred room booked (and more expensive) booked on Booked.net. Not worth it!! Definitely go to Marriott, you will get more for the same price! At the beach area We couldn't get chairs, but I thought an North American lady getting one after tiping r$50,00 to the employee. Even beeing after us.....shame on the lady and on the employees...

          Staff is very friendly and helps wherever they can. Great heated pool, our children did not want to get out again.

          Refresh the hotel would be useful, F.ex. On the bathroom floor you get another pool after taking a shower. Beds are not wet but not really dry... Barra de Tijuca is really fare from the city of Rio, around is just the beach and people living in 25 floor buildings.

          Location and pool

          Smell and size of room. Do not book the suite as the size is the same as the reg room

        • Couple

          Ocean front rooms, all rooms have a view. Nice gym and pool area.

          Unfortunately for a large five star chain hotel, this did not live up to expectations. On check in, we had to move rooms 3 times before finding one that didn't smell of mould/damp. Although public areas still had this unpleasant aroma. Perhaps a problem for this hotel?...as I had previously read other similar comments, however still decided to give it a chance. Disappointing. Also the restaurant was closed for refurbishment, but no mention of this during booking. Hotel is away from the main areas, but not a problem if you are prepared to travel. Would have stayed on Leblon or Ipanema if there was availability. As per other reviewers , do not expect to have to pay for internet access/wifi, perhaps this is a Brazilian issue, but we did not have this problem during 8 weeks travelling around Argentina and Chile when it was always free of charge.
