I've booked Chateau Joa in May for my wife's birthday. I was a bit hesitant as their condition is minimum several nights and non refundable. I ended up booking for 4 nights for a total of €1806! As our travel plan for changed, I contacted the manager, Christiane Junqueira, to reduce our stay to 2 nights only. She was very slow to answer and absolutely not accommodating. She said that, after consulting with the owner, there was nothing she can do to show flexibility. See her response: "Hi, Sorry for the delay in answering you back. Unforntunatly there is no way of refunding the 2 nights but it will be a pleasure to have you the 4 nights at our hotel." After I complained to Booking.com, nothing happened apart from her email: Dear Sir, Why you do not give us a credit? I have been talking to you and giving you all the support necessary. Modifications were made at the hotel. Wait for your return. " By that, she meant she was ok for us to stay we nigh ts while paying for 4. In the end we didn't go at all, based on the negative reviews. They charged the full amount on our credit card. Total scam!

We booked this ‘hotel’ for 4 days over new year for 15,000 really only due to a lack of viable alternatives (we booked in mid November). In mid December we changed the dates to the 2nd January for 4 nights, and the hotel assured us they would refund the difference if the room was resold. Our understanding, having spoken to the manager Pablo, was that the hotel was full over NY and yet they were not forthcoming with any refund (the normal rate is around 1250 per night). In any case, we arrived on the 2nd, and we’re immediately so disappointed with the hotel that we booked the Emiliano and left the next morning. Why so bad that we left after 12 hours having fully paid for the 4 day stay? Firstly this is not a hotel, it is more like a low rent, partly serviced airbnb. The house is from the 1970s and hasn’t been renovated since then. There was no hot water to have a shower. There was no lunch for us when we arrived, you have to order 3 hours in advance. Any food that was prepared was from highly processed, cheap food we see at hostels in Europe. The breakfast for instance was packaged ham, processed packaged cheese, long life bread and a banana. We couldn’t lock the doors to our room because they couldn’t find the keys. There is no fitness, no room service, no food on demand. I could go on and on and on. I find it strange that this is being run as a viable business (???). If you come to Rio stay somewhere else.

A disaster! We had an early flight and had to wait more than one hour on the street before someone opens us as there is no reception and the hotel didn't warn us. Then when finally talking to the manager she was very rude and unpolite. She even blamed us for coming early, no excuses !

Le Chateaux Joa is pure beauty and luxury only to be beaten by the stunning views of Barra and Joa and the exceptional service of Leandro, the chefs, and an uber talented piano player. This boutique hotel is extremely beautiful, clean, and has unrivaled views from the room, restaurant, and terrace. I highly recommend the Gavea room, with it's own balcony and view of Barra beach, the pool, and Pedra da Gavea! Leandro was such a gem, so professional, charming and helpful. You have chefs that you order whatever your heart desires and the ingredients are bought that day from the farmer's markets and prepared for you. The food was absolutely delicious. And to top it all off, they have such a talented piano player who plays during dinner on the weekends. This is hotel is a MUST stay if you come to Rio!

My wife and I recently spent Christmas in this charming oasis. When I first met Leandro, on our arrival, we spontaneously hugged. Upon leaving, we did the same. That about sums up our experience: beautiful place, beautiful people. A special place to which we will no doubt return. Thanks Christo Brendan and Anna
