Nice hotel with expected ammenities for this standard. Their lunch buffets are quite pricey but certainly worth the money. Their cocktails are also great especialy the Caprioska!! Liked the quiet location and minutes from the fabulous golden beach - across the rd!!. I'll be returning :)

Hotels in Rio are generally mediocre both in terms of the hard product which is old and run down(unlike let's say the amazing Hyatt at Sao Paulo) and hospitality is generally mediocre. Cariocas seem to take it for granted that tourist will show up and pay through the nose to stay in the "marvelous city". Since there are no Starwood,...

is getting worse. Why? because the club lounge is ridiculous in size and offers limited selection of canapés, the rooms often smell of damp, wifi connection in the room, VERY slow and cost around 15 euro / day. Decent overall but the excessive cost (average 300/350 USD) it penalizes further. Because of the limited availability of Hotel in Barra is...

This place is bad. Dirty and smelly rooms, in bad need of renovation. Poor service and wifi is lower than most places. Gives a bad name to Sheraton worldwide, a shame given the beautiful views and location by the beach. Stay away.

Rooms are very nice and studio style, but maintenance is not very good (can improve). Service is ok, but should be better for the price they charge. Great location if you want to be...

I have now stayed at four hotels in Brazil, and this was the only one of the four that could be mistaken for a nice American hotel. I had a junior suite, which included a queen bed and a sitting area separated by a swiveling TV stand. The room was very nice and clean. I did find a box of...

I stayed at this hotel for a week in mid-March for a business trip. For a Sheraton I was very shocked at the lack of service and dinginess of the rooms, especially for almost $300 USD/night. The location - across the street from the beach - is nice, but you have to pay a BIG premium for a decent view,...
