"This should be just a Marriot not a JW"
Positive aspects: Very good location, kind staff, wonderful breakfast and nice pool area (the pool is well oriented to receive the sun all day long, wonderful views and bar offers amazing drinks). However, it doesn’t deliver at the usual or expected standards of a JW Marriot, it’s more a 4 stars (a common Marriot) and definitely not a 5-star hotel. The property has a late 80’s design and infrastructure , which is more evident in the rooms, urgent renovation needed!! Conclusion: take it if priced like a 4-star. If regardless of price you’re looking after the luxury, comfort and service of a 5 star this is not your option.
"The Only Place to stay in Rio!"
Great location, comfortable rooms and a rooftop pool that offers breathtaking views.. Service was spectacular and Yousef, the bartender made us feel as though we had visited his bar hundreds of time. Thank you for a beautiful experience. This review is written on behalf of myself and Vicky who is visiting again soon.
"Great stay in a great hotel "
I have been to hundreds of hotels over the years and tend to be picky but I enjoyed my stay at this property quite greatly. It's not a new hotel per say and some parts of it needs updating (carpets in some rooms and hallways and sofa in the room is too sunk in and old) but the amenities, staff, location, friendliness, and views make up for any shortcomings. One thing to keep in mind that the size and view of the rooms vary greatly. My friends and are had very different rooms and hence different experiences. Make sure you eat a beach facing room if you can and do take advantage of the wonderful breakfast and happy hour break. The rooftop pool is too small so it's really just to cool off and not to swim. The food truck on roof is great. I will stay there again next time I'm in town, happily.
"Better Stay This Time"
Had a Sunday night stay in early October that went without an issue this time. The negotiated room charge was correctly charged in BRL without the unnecessarily USD route. I still have no clue what would make this JW though over regular Marriott.
