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 booking.com...
nice location which is across the beach it is a high end area no budget restaurants in walking distance
Restaurant side My room was not realy clean!!!
Because it is close to our office in RIo. For this price, I would have expected a much better fitness center, as opposed to other Sheraton facilities in the US.
The rooms are big, recently renewed and comfortable. The swimming pool is also very good Food is extremely expensive and very bad.
Right at the beach! We had booked a standard room, but at arrival they offered us a sea front room instead :-) The bath room was very small. 2 people at the same time was impossible!
Kind staff, good cleanliness and comfort, excellent breakfast, near the beach. Not too expensive. Quite far from the city center. No.
The service people have been extremly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was near to delicious, a lot of fresh fruits and various sorts of bread. The coffee and the juices had been very good as well. Overall the breakfast compensated for the bad location and the sub-standard rooms. The near beach is OK, and better than Ipanema and Copa, as its not that crowdy. Actually I liked the small hut bar directly in front of the hotel next to the beach. The apart-hotel is directly located next to a very busy four-tracks road, thus making it impossible to leave the door open over night. Besides that the air condition didnt work at all. The room was superficially clean. So, overall basic standard and the price performance ratio was acceptable.
Its in a lovely area on the beach. A great view and effective rooms
Staff was friendly, breakfast was good, room clean and well furnished. Hotel too far from anything. Only one restaurant close, no shopping, no convenience store to buy some fruit. Room was noisy even though away from main road. Travel to Rio about 45 min by bus, 50 reals by cab. Heavy traffic between hotel and beach.
Compared to other hotels in the general area the Casa Del Mar provided excellent value for money. While not 5 star, the hotel was clean, easily accessible, provided good service and had just about everything one could want from a hotel of this rating. While the breakfast and restaurant menus were also not five star, the quality of the food was very good and again represented good value for money. I did have some difficultly when checking out in regards to telephone charges. I was using the phone in my room to make calls with a telecard and while I was happy to pay the local telephone call fee these calls also attracted an international call cost which didn't seem right to me.
The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was very good. Great ocean view. Trasportation to shops is a big+.
Nice clean hotel -- great breakfast -- 5 minutes to beach
the use of free internet, if the weather was ed the pool and balconybetter, i would have enjoy
Breakfast, services and atmosphere is good. Far from Atlantic ocean beach and city center. English only at reception.
ocean side room + value very limited English skills;
The location is excellent and the beach is fantastic. The staff at the reception was not friendly. There were some mistakes during the check-in and chek-out.
Outside of town. No laundry on sundays.
The hotel is nicely located by a beach with a nice view to the ocean and close to many shops and restaurants. The breakfast is very rich and tasty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Additional charge for a safety box and internet connection
Well located for Riocentro exhibition halls, not so well located for tourist stuff. No bar to speak of so no social atmosphere in the evenings. More of a business hotel than anything else but it's a taxi ride to everywhere.
staff were great, nice mall nearby very commercial, probably better for business than entertainment
My daughter loved the river rapid pool. The hotel was a bit run down. Our room had water damage and the wallpaper was falling off.
I don't see any good reason why to waste your money coming to this hotel. Reception staff totally unhelpful and barely speak any other language than portuguese. I stayed for 1 week and wireless internet worked for around 30 min in total. The stuff were unwilling and unable to provide any solutions. Considering the price of the room, this hotel is a total rip off.
Location, Restaurant quality versus Price My room was located in the back of the hotel, and the window was close to the parking. It was a little noise due to the veicules.
It was very facilitative hotel. Although there was English problems with service peoples, but they were very cooperative. Charges needs to be reduced.
Location is terrific! Our room was very small and had a sewer smell problem. Decided not to complain since we arrived late at night.
The breakfast is excelente The last day we ask for a Taxi the hotel has the service, and they said that our destination was so far. They ask for a lot id money for that finally the have a confusión and the place was 5 minutes but the ask for the same rate so idon't recomed the tax
Good breakfast, nice llocation, safe-box in the room, friendly and helpful staff, Everything is very old there. It looks like I came to the hotel of the Soviet Union time. The old uncontrolled airconditioning system, old and yellowish bed linen, bad pillows, old furniture. Definitely for such a price you can expect not a luxury but at least some beter room. Could be a tea/coffee maker in the room. Many things in the mini-bar are expired as nobody eats them. Staff does not speak english.
Clean, quiet, simple and not very expensive for being in Barra. It has parking place and breakfast was good.
