Belmond Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

To preside lavishly over one of the world’s most well known beaches, book a penthouse suite at the five-star Belmond Copacabana Palace. Here you’ll have a bird's eye view over the coast, where two million people flock to watch the fireworks each New Year's Eve. Named a cultural patrimony of Rio, the 90-year-old landmark once hosted Marilyn Monroe, The Rolling Stones and Diana, Princess of Wales. It retains a French-inspired feel after a 2012 restoration, and the social scene at the expansive pool is as hot as the Rio sun.

See and be seen on Copacabana’s wide swatch of sand. Give up your white-umbrella-clad throne and return for lunch, a feijoada stew – Brazil's national dish – at the poolside bar. Indulge in a spa treatment that uses white clay from the Amazon. Snag a sake cocktail at celeb chef Ken Hom’s MEE restaurant. Sway to bossa nova with a hot local at the piano bar.

This is a lovely place to stay. I chose it because the conference I attended was held here. My “standard” room was terrific. Very quiet. It didn’t have an Ocean view but then I think the rooms with such a view may suffer from traffic noise (there is a highway between the hotel and the beach). Anyway, I was perfectly happy for five days and would recommend a room like mine (320) unreservedly! The staff are, without exception, delightful. I’m trying to plan a return trip....First photo shows the amazing view from the Pergula breakfast buffet. Second shows the hotel from the beach. Stay here! Take my word for it!

I have been staying at this marvelous Gran Dame hotel (at least 15 times now) every time I visit Rio, and it never disappoints! In fact it always surprises me in the very best way. The design of the lobby, grounds, and rooms are beautifully designed and constantly updated. The pool area is one of the nicest city pool hotels you will ever see. And the buffet morning breakfast with delicious local fresh fruits and traditional Brazilian breads, pastries etc is simply delicious. Not to mention the 2 additional restaurants, Cipriani and Mee for your evening meals. This hotel offers all amenities including a wonderful full service Spa, fantastic toiletries in every room including robes and flip flops should you want to step down to the pool, Spa or cross the avenue to the beach! It is true that the area of Copacabana beach is no longer as chic as it once was but given this wonderful gem of a hotel, with its wonderful staff who strive to meet every need you might have and with its superb security, I choose not to stay anywhere else but at the Copacabana Palace when in Rio.

First of all, ignore any negative comments about the physical condition of this hotel made before they started their renovations. I believe this was fairly recent, and I did hear some minor apparent renovation noise while I was there in February 2018, so maybe they are still in progress. The entire hotel is immaculate. The staff is uniformly excellent. The rooms are well-designed and artfully decorated. The breakfast is unbelievably fantastic. In addition to a HUGE buffet of very high quality hot and cold selections, you are offered specially cooked egg-based dishes. I had an ocean-front room on a lower floor. Because of the double-paned windows, you hear no traffic noise, so lower floors are actually more desirable, as you feel closer to the beach. Beach-facing rooms are preferred but not essential, as in any event you are right on the beach when you walk out the door. The hotel pool is, again, immaculate. And huge. Ipanema is widely considered to be a more desirable area than Copacabana. Yes, the restaurants in Ipanema are better. But the hotel stock there is a bore. And taxis are absolutely everywhere, so going to and from Ipanema is simple and cheap. Regarding beach quality, again, Ipanema might win, but Copacabana beaches are much deeper and less crowded. The friends I travelled with stayed in Ipanema. They all wished they had stayed at the Palace. I wanted to stay at a hotel with character. The Palace has that in a manner beyond belief. Ipanema hotels don't.

I love to try spas in different countries. Didn’t expect to get such high quality massage in Brazil but yes! I didn’t regret trying their spa! The service is very good and the masseuse know what they are doing! I had the Flentitude couple spa which is around 1166R, included a body scrub, scented bath and a 60 minute massage. The masseurs are friendly and professional, they know what they are doing. The whole experience is a bliss, totally worth the money. Besides from spa, the room is not big but comfortable. The pool is great, I love their breakfast.

This has been my go to hotel in Rio and I checked in to find it was very crowded. I had a nice avenue suite which looks on other buildings but is a really nice and comfortable suite. The bathrooms were great. The bed excellent. Service was great when I needed something like ice I called and go it in minutes. I like the rooms in the older building as they are closer to the pooland have the gym and spa in it. As the hours of sunshine can be limited one needs to head to the pool early to ensure a seat. The hotel is 2 blocks from the subway - which I appreciated. My room had a large balcony which I was able to use in the afternoon for more sun.
