I’d give 4.5 stars if I was allowed but not quite 5. The pandemic caused a few issues (bar been closed early and no 24 hour room service) and I had a few very minor issues-One day my water wasn’t replaced and on another I ordered room service and one of the items didn’t arrive. This happened another day but the guy realised and went back. The room was a double delux and was amazing with a great view and duel aspect. Roof top pool is great and although I didn’t use the gym there is a small one if needed. The staff were all helpful and polite and the food was good as well as the breakfast. Always felt safe and secure and the cleaners always did a great job.
Location is good, just 100m from the beach. Staff friendly and helpful but English skills are lacking which makes service frustrating particularly in the restaurant area. Booked a sea view room. Ha ha ha. You had to stand at the window and look right to see the sea as an apartment block is right in front of the building. Make sure you get a higher floor if you book a sea view. Check in and out is a bit like trying to check in to Fort Knox, takes forever and there rarely seems to be enough staff on the front desk. If they fix the basics this would be a great hotel worth revisiting but not as it currently operates. PS. Complained about the “sea view” room I booked and got moved to a higher floor which had a better view.
Very nice hotel very close to the beach at Barra. Rooms are big size, quiet and conftable bed. The bar is very good; very good breakfast and hospitality from the hotel personal. Nice pool at roof top.
This is third day I am trying to reach my email to hotel stuff, all mails goes to the void, they have done card preauth and in the end instead of approve this transaction and get separate diferanse for room services they told that they have canceled preauth and charged for all one more time ((( Also does not response to emails at all. Now about the rest Food: ordered a lobster for dinner it was over cocked and over salted Toproof pool: not clean at all, a lot of strange locals which put laud their music and no one from stuff even do not try do anything Beach: not very clean, but the worse that was that if you are not Windsor Barra client you have to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas of same Windsor Transportation: even before arrival I have ask a quotation for transportation I’got answer within a month, even more for comfort class car they have asked 2 times then you could take a biz class car on Expedia Conclusion: will take back my money if they will not answer then by my bank, and never again will have a dill with this hospitality network…
We stayed for 6 nights at the Windsor Oceanico. The first night we left the A/C as recommended at 25C. Due to the extreme outside heat and humidity we had to sleep with A/C instead of opening the window. In the middle of the night, my wife was boiling with fever in excess of 40C. We tried calling the travelers insurance but the calls would not go through from the room phone. I called the operator, but they asked me come downstairs to paid for the call in advance??? Finally, I reached from my cell the medical assistance in Argentina and they contacted their Brazil office to call me back. My wife needed antibiotics, only next morning I realized a problem with the A/C which had water dripping from the ceiling. The technician confirmed a mal-functioning thermostat pushing cold air at 15C or 60F at Max speed. The Managment considered this A/C problem minor as we still used the room and wouldn’t refund the night or the lost trips we had already paid for, as my wife had to stay in bed for 3 days. At the end, I received a refund of the taxes for my stay in compensation, a meager 50% of the cost of one night. Further, each call to receive 3x plates and silverware or glasses to room was charged a service fee of R$5.50 (=USD1.35). I have never seen a 4-star hotel charge for using their dishes and silverware at the room. Overall, the quality and services provided at the Windsor Oceanico do not correspond to a 4-star establishment. Even the food quality and room service (charged always 10% of the bill) we’re below standard. While the Windsor Oceanico (4-star) and the Windsor Barra Hotel (5-star) next door and interconnected through a catwalk, have the same menus, the Windsor Oceanico doesn’t live up to a 4-star hotel level. I will avoid the Windsor Oceanico in future trips and recommend the extra cost with Windsor Barra Hotel (5-star) which I have visited 2 years ago.…
Brilliant place to stay. enjoyed the location and gym. you can walk up to beach for a sun bath and come back to hotel for cool comfortable stay. Breakfast spread is good but should have live facility for omelettes. clean spacious rooms.
We picked Windsor because ratings and assumed high standards from bigger hotel chain. Don’t make the same mistake! Personnel in this hotel did zero effort to make our visit pleasant. We tried ordering sparkling wine ready to our rooms on arrival, no answer from hotel, only after two emails and a mid-night call to the hotel, they informed us via email that this is not possible. Waiters at the pool area ignored customers constantly, forgot/ignored the orders and never apologized for endless waiting. At the departure day we asked to pay for late checkout in the other rooms we booked, as our flight was leaving late in the evening. Reception said no, without any explanations, even without asking our room number. After couple of hours we asked again with the same result. Only after calling the reception from the room, this was somehow magically possible with 50% of standard rate for 6 more extra hours. (note! rooms were available for booking online all the time for the same day) Hotel itself was a dissapointment for many parts as well. Absolutely horrible breakfast area one can only describe as ”cacophony”. Breakfast completely lacked fresh vegetables and the ”menu” was exactly the same every morning. Pool water was absolutely discusting. Brownish in color with thick layer of tanning oil on top. Poor central air conditioning in rooms. Turning the temperature up or down had no effect at all.a Don’t ruin your vacation with the Windsor Hoteis. They need to understand what hospitality means first.…
I spent 5 nights at this hotel. I should tell. You first about the checkout process which was excruciating. First, I tried to get a late checkout, getting the response that I should only ask on the morning of my departure. Which of course gave me no option to plan my time. Shouldn't a hotel in this caliber know if it has spare room or not? The result was I had to spend 4 hours in the hotel lobby, waiting for my flight. The other result was a line of dozens of people, having to leave the hotel at the same time. Now the room--this was quite nice, though my view was of a wall. The food was a C minus, with no vegetable in sight and no solution for lactose intolerance. There were no good restaurants near by and actually no real attraction So... If you have a conference nearby, it's a good location. Otherwise, pass. Giving you the picture of the check-out line.…
Sometime elevators simply do not stop at the floor, or do it so quickly you simply don't have time to get to the door. There is room to improve breakfast. Bar area also could be enlarged. There are too few tables.
not a sea front hotel as its down a side street next to the Windsor Barra hotel. some of the rooms do have a sea view though. it has very friendly and efficient staff. the room was always clean. Wi-Fi signal was good. the restaurant has a good menu, i love the mushroom and Brie soup. breakfast buffet is very good. it is a very short walk to the beach. the hotel can organise tours to local attractions. there is a supermarket and several restaurants all in short walking distance.
