Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.

... a trip up to see Christ the Redeemer. Its a great tram ride through the bush to get up there, I was expecting a long wait for the tram but we just missed one and got the next one in 20 minutes. I was invited to a Jewellery factory by this lovely lady while we waited. You all know how that is supposed to turn out for them anyway, but I feigned interest and got the free gift.
At the top there where quite a few people but nothing like the crowds I was expecting. It was ...
... in an Irish pub - yes you can tell that we really were missing home comforts.
Probably the most famous export from Brazil to the UK that isn’t consumable is Havaianas flip flops. At £20 a pair in England they are a fair bit cheaper in Rio at £4. They are some of Lucy’s favourite footwear - apparently they are super comfy (Ash really can’t tell the difference to cheap ones..) so she was hell bent on stocking up. There was Ash thinking a ...
... own, so I cabbed it back to the hotel and got ready for dinner… I ended up going to an Irish pub down the road from the hotel for dinner with a fair chunk of our group. It may have been an unwise decision to drink many beers with the boys, but i did so hopefully i don't wake up in the morning feeling too bad. Anyway now I'm in bed ready for sleep… we are meant to be going on a boat tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how I pull up. Fingers crossed I don't have a ...
... painters and sculptors of Brazil were summoned to decorate the building. The city allowed the building to fall in serious disrepair, but recently had it restored to its original glory, finishing in 2010. It is a stunning and inspirational atmosphere for a performance, and the acoustics in the building are glorious. We chose to see the ballet, La Bayadere, because we felt the language barrier would not be as much an issue with ...
... walking to some waterfalls along a lovely muddy, slippery track which Ange kept getting stuck on, the walk was a bit longer than we'd expected so Ange was pretty fed up in the end but wouldn't take Jimmy up on his offer of a piggy back. As we were heading to a nice island we decided to treat ourselves a little with the hotel and booked a few nights in what was called a Junior Suite, so we were quite excited before we get there, until it turned out to be a normal ...
