Beautifully located along Copacabana Beach, the Portuguese-owned Pestana has excellent amenities, decent service and a wide range of rooms. The best have wood floors, balconies and a bright, modern design scheme. Rooms at the lower end are rather bland and too small to recommend.
The newly refurbished suites at Pestana Rio have flood-lit windows and classical décor. Also included is air conditioning, an LCD TV and iPod docking station. Some have furnished balconies with views.
Guests can sample fine Portuguese cuisine at the restaurant, or enjoy live music and exotic cocktails at the lobby bar. A breakfast with buttered croissants and juices is served on the rooftop. The spa offers essential oil massages, and guests can use the modern gym.
The environmentally sustainable Pestana Rio Atlantica is conveniently situated 8 km from Santos Dumont Airport, and 20 km from Galeao Airport. Christ the Redeemer Statue is 4 km away, while Copacabana Fort is 1.6 km from the property.
