Our room was great, housekeeping excellent, breakfast buffet also very good, and bar staff very friendly and helpful. I would have given better rating except we had a problem connecting to wifi. When I asked receptionist, she merely shrugged and said she had no problem and showed me her phone to prove her point. My problem was I couldn't connect and I was asking for help. She would not co-operate and said I must be my phone. If course it was my phone but I can't be the first to have a problem and I was merely asking for help. I was dismissed by saying I needed to talk to her manager. I was getting angry at this point as this wasn't what I wanted, I only wanted to connect. Very unhelpful.
Beware also that parking (€9 a day) is very limited so if you manage to get a spot, you will be advised by reception to leave your car in hotel for duration of stay and walk or bus everywhere (expensive parking costs).
Be also aware there are two similar hotels in this general area, the Ipanema Park (which has a pool) and Ipanema Port (this one) that doesn't have a pool.More
