Highly Rated Beach Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Brazilian Paradise for Beach and Nature Lovers

Anyone looking for an unforgettable vacation on the majestic beaches of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil will fall in love with the Windsor Barra Hotel, a highly rated independent property with direct beach access for all guests. When the beach gets boring, see some green at the Itahanga Golf Club, a beautiful course and club with views of the mountains. No visitor has truly experienced Rio de Janiero until he or she hang glides over Pedra Bonita, a mountain shooting over the forests of Tijuca National Park.

Health Club, Sauna, and Business Center

This fresh property was built in 2005 and shines with finesse and cool colors in the lobby. Getting inside and to the desk is a breeze thanks to the free valet parking. This hotel's benefits don't stop at a great location and building. Business travelers will appreciate the business center and the 24-hour front desk to attend to any needs.

Those with kids can go to the children's pool or take a day off with childcare and babysitting. Parents can then take a dip themselves in one of the two main outdoor pools. This, of course, all depends on whether guests can tear themselves away from the wonderful beach.

Peaceful, Luxurious Rooms and Friendly Service

Don't be scared if you see a lot of kids in the lobby, because the sound proofed rooms guarantee no one will be disturbed during the night. Connected and adjoining rooms are available if you're traveling with a group. In-room childcare is even offered for a fair surcharge.

The Windsor Barra Hotel offers a free breakfast from 6:00 AM to 10:30 AM. Room service is ready 24-hours a day to serve you a meal in your room, where you can eat at your desk and get some emergency work done on the high-speed wired or wireless internet. The helpful, multilingual staff won't rest until you're satisfied.

The Bottom Line

While Windsor Barra is a family friendly hotel, don't expect a cheap place that cuts corners. The Windsor Barra provides a tremendous value for those who are willing to spend more than three-star prices. Mar Palace Copacabana is a cheaper and slightly less well-rated hotel of similar appeals for families and nature lovers. Still, if you simply refuse to count nickels and dimes for a hotel, get one of the best ones in Rio de Janeiro.
