I was looking for a romantic hotel in Rio de Janeiro, to spend my wedding anniversary. I didn't have any problema booking a room online. When my family and I arrived, we became astonished by the hotels beauty. Our room was on a top level floor, with a great view of the ocean and the main street. The room was also impeccably clean and organized, the only fault was the missing of an extra bed, that we had asked for my son, but it was rapidly solved.
Windsor barra is a great hotel, not new but is comfortable and clean and its in barra da tijuca that is a quiet besch compared qith others in rio. Our security box run out of batteries but they inmediately repaired ir. Breakfast is the best, a lot of food and for all the tastes. It has beach service but ther are not enough umbrellas and beach chairs, so if there is many people in the hotel you may have to pay for them to people that rent it on the beach... The critique i hace for the hotel is that doesnt have wifi!!!! XXI century and there is not free wifi, something to take on acount.
"Family Winter Holiday"
We stayed in Barra Windsor for our family winter vacation . The hotel is clean and the view is great, right across from the beautiful beaches. The staff at the reception is good with English but most of the service staff they do not speak English communication is problem. Service is slow. Breakfast buffet definetly needs improvement.
The hotel is alright. The spot is brilliant, as it is in front of the beach. The service was very good and breakfast was of a high quality. The room was ok, you can tell that it has seen better years and I did not like the fact that wifi was not included
"Out of the way, but very high quality"
Right on the Barra beach, with ocean views from many rooms, the Windsor Barra is reasonably priced, clean, and boasts good service. As some other reviews have indicated, some updating is justified, but the pluses outweigh the minuses. The surf is amazing, with windkites and surfers in abundance. A slight drawback is the relative lack of restaurants in the vicinity; however, a short taxi ride is enough for a broader variety.
