Editorial review:

Sheraton Rio Hotel & Resort is for those of you who wish to be in driving/taxi distance from the Copacabana action, while enjoying a great, private beach away from the bustling crowds. The fact that the hotel also offers stunning swimming pools overlooking the ocean, doesn't hurt either.

  • Single
    5.4

    Location (proximity to so called "zona sul" area, with Malls and Beaches).

    Very poor services, with unexperienced employees, and unexplained taxation and/or service taxes (a 10pct extra even over Booked.net rates -- very unfair and inadequate), and total lack of coordination from their reservation desk with Booked.net -- besides, hotel in general is in great need for renovation, plus a dangerous "favela" right by the hotel (with gun fire overnight).

  • Single
    5.4

    That's nicely located, only 15 minutes from Ipanema Beach

    Long Lines at registration/check-out desks even with a small amount of guests, employees doesn't speak English nor Spanish, and Hotel manager and supervisors are always absent. Spg - Starwood Preferred Guests are treated as idiots with no support nor attention, and prices are at least 30% over the reasonable (room rates and meals/snacks/beaverages). Would recomend other Hotels by the Ipanema and Leblon Beaches as Sheraton was desapointing in all aspects.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    The facilties, such as swimming pools, and beach, are very good. The corridors and rooms, including doors, carpet, etc, were extremely poor. The hotelurgently needs renovation.

    The lobbye looks good, However, the corridors and hotel rooms, including the doors of the rooms, the walls, the carpets, etc, were extremely poor, broken and filthy The hotel urgently needs renovation.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The location is beautiful. The Sheraton is a little removed from the action in Ipanema and Copacabana, but it more than makes up for this by having its own beautiful private beach, tennis courts, and restaurants with live music at night, and it is only a quick taxi ride to Ipanema. Staff were helpful and friendly and all spoke at least English and often French and/or German, as well as Portuguese.

    This is not a 5 star (luxury) hotel, at least by international standards. At most this is a US 3 or 4 star (first class). Our room was comfortable but small and nothing special and needed lots of minor repairs. For example, the floor of the tiny balcony was splattered with paint and the bathroom plugin and door jamb were broken. Parking is not free for hotel guests. Internet also is not free. The gift shop is closed on weekends, so although we saw some great items in the window, we had not way of buying them.

    The staff is excellent and very accomodating to the us traveler. Excellent facilities and very safe.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The food was wonderful. The gym was extensive and good. The view from my room was breathtaking.

    Need much better wireless and wired internet for the business travel. Wireless Coverage was spotty/weak and even when plugged directly into the ethernet cable connection was miserable. Must be improved or as a business traveler I will not be able to use the facility again.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Staff were helpful, private viewing of the beach apart from locals is a plus

    Beach use and pool shuts down at 6pm too early no incentives for guests such as complementary breakfast for one day they do have accomendation for 2 children and 2 adults despite what booking states

    Nice little beach in the back of the hotel

    We had a cab driver over charge us and asked for help from the security in front of the hotel. We got an eye roll, much correction in language use so that by the time they heard the story the cab driver had left....and then they said wow they over charged you-you shouldn't have paid! The door actually broke to our room...the wind blew it shut hard, another room was not ready for about 10 hours for us to move into. They kept saying within the hour....It took over two hours to get a mix up in rooms straitened out when we arrived. We spent a lot of time resolving issue's, instead of relaxing and enjoying our vacation. Beds are uncomfortable too. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

    the facilities, the room, the view, decoration of the room, the pool & gym.

    Food (expensive and not good) & location it was far away from the beach of copavabana & Ipanema

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Beach Side Location.

    Should be a bit more co-ordial and inviting for the price they charge. Mini bar items are un-necessary and charges are very heavy and random.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    I really enjoyed the quality of the services provided by the concierge. The staff is really helpful.

    They should really change the bathroom which are a bit old fashion. In addition, the breakfast is not the best in terms of the quality of the food.

  • Couple
    8.0

    Friendly people.

    After my schedulle for a non-smoking room, at the chek in and due to the absence of such a room, I was proposed for a smoking room. After my renounce, I was then offered with a up-grade room, nevertheless, for such a strategic positioning of your hotel chain, this is regretable.
