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

The Le Chateaux was my third destination during my stay in RJ. It was the best joice to stay there for a while, a very nice hotel in-between nature and with an astonishing view to the ocean and Barra till Recreio. I had a huge suite with vapor sauna and whirlpool and direct view from bed to the ocean. The rooms are clean, romantic and offering everything you need. The garden with the pool is nice maintained and I spend some relaxed hours there. The staff is super friendly, they try to offer what you desire - if you miss something, they will try to solve it immediate. For sure I will come back in next years and spend some more days there with Leonardo and his team.

The room was nice, beautiful wood. nice suroundings . We had ordered 8 months before our arrival and booked then 2 rooms. Upon arrival they told us they only had 1 room for us. No rooms available all though we had booked and also payment was taken for 2 rooms 8 months earlier. They blamed "the system". the system had made a reservation for 1 room. In the end i got a room in a villa near by and had to move between the hotel and villa. Very inconvenient. of course a room in a villa is different form a Hotel room. It wa the beginning of a 24 day holiday and this really spoiled our spirits after traveling 1,5 days. we got no compensation , never saw a manager, only personal that spoke a weak english
