What makes a 5 star hotel?
Is it the bed, bathroom, the pool or food?

It's the service from the hotel staff that makes you feel like you are staying with family. That is 5 star.

In these times with Covid-19, quarantine stayed just under 21 days. These are the times when an outstanding hotel staff make all the different.

Stronger recommend if you plan on staying in the Barra area using the Windsor Barra hotel.

Regards, Richard Coyne

Room tip: I think all the rooms are good, maybe some with a better view. I sayed in two different rooms.

This hotel has a great location for the beach - which is right across the street. But the checkin staff was very cold and didn't seem to care that I wasn't given the same class of room as I had booked. Once I reached my room and began complaining about legitimate problems (A/C didn't work, TV was faulty, etc.), they quickly changed me to the type of room that I reserved. Their attitude seemed to be like they were used to doing this sort of swich-a-roo with reservations. Once I was in the right room, it was quiet and comfortable. The buffet breakfast restaurant offered fantastic food choices and had a very nice staff.

Room tip: Make sure you get the room you booked. Don't let them get away with switching you.

The hotel is very decent and well located in front of the beach of Barra da Tijuca, in Rio. The room is spacious, super clean, looking at the sea. Even the bathroom is large! I was there during the weekend and the place was full of Southamerican tourists and Rio residents that live somewhere else and spend their weekends at hotels close to the beach. Breakfast was exceptional and very diverse. The staff is always very nice, as most cariocas. Two buts. The pool is small and most of the time full. And the beach in front of the hotel has a limited stretch of sand and is packed with people, making it even difficult ot walk. There are many options to eat in the surroundings. The rooms are very silent!!! A must for me.

Room tip: ask for those facing the beach

It's a very nice hotel and the staff are nice only I was surprised that even in such a hotel staff spoke very little English.
Also at our check in we agreed early check-in the reception told us it would take an hour, but we ended up waiting for more than 2 hours after a very long over night flight.
Last thing, the location is far from all the usual touristic cities.

Room tip: The room was really nic
