A good value for money mid-range modern hotel in a superb location.

This modern, glass fronted hotel is situated approximately half-way down Copacabana beach, with views over the extensive sands and a cheery bar opposite with free Wifi (you’d  have to pay for Wifi in the hotel).

It is top of the mid-range class; the superior and oceanfront rooms are neat, contemporary, light and well designed, with large windows and plenty of storage space. The small pool, bar, gym, steam room and lounging area on the roof make for an excellent leisure facility with fabulous views. There's a bright breakfast room and restaurant on the ground floor.

The staff are particularly friendly and accommodating; if the hotel is not full they will grant you a late check out without any fuss, and but they will store your luggage if necessary.

What our clients say

  • Definitely worth trying to get a beach facing room. Whilst it was a 'generic' international hotel it was better than average and everything functioned pretty well.

  • Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast good. Roof top bar lovely and relaxed and not too pricey. Room a little small and noisy with no view but didn't pay for…

    JW, Swadlincote
  • Great hotel in a great location.

    IM, Chippenham
  • A wonderful position and good service. As a bonus we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor which was an excellent start to our holiday!

    MM, Holt
  • The location was wonderful.   Our trip dossier warned us about the hotel's charges for WiFi and this being available free at a booth over the road so the hotel lost…

Our Expert's Opinion

It was the friendly and helpful service that most impressed me at the hotel until I went up to the roof: a lovely place to relax, maybe at the end of the day, or if you are waiting for an evening flight. The super little pool and captivating vistas over the beach were delightful.
