Lunch, dine, have a drink at THE spot on Copacabana beach. Beautiful property with excellent service. If you want one of the best & iconic properties to stay at while in Rio, look no further. All the major hotels are opposite the beach, but this is the famous one.

We stayed at the Belmond Copacabana Palace for 8 nights in March in a Pool & Oceanview suite. The hotel is in a great location and it's a lovely walk to Ipanema or Leblon, particularly in the morning or early evening when it's a little cooler. The hotel itself is spotless and has a very classic charm. The public areas...

There are some luxury places you stay that are that generous that you really feel pampered and there are others that will charge you for everything and feel rather mean. I arrived at the beautiful Belmond Copacabana Palace after staying at a few places on the generous end of the scale and unfortunately it felt a little mean but to...

Copacabana Palace is a postcard of Rio de Janeiro. It exhales elegance and luxury on every little detail. The rooms keep the greatness of last center nobility accommodations, the closeness to the beach and the restaurant offering combined with a mythical pool would make your stay unforgettable.

First time at the hotel and it is worth the experience. Will visit again when in town. Had excellent services by the staff. Great swimming pool area and two top restaurants, which we did not have time to check.

I love the hotel and have stayed here several times, but they now seem to be determined to blast us all with loud music by the pool all day from 10am. In this age of headphones why is this necessary? We came here for a rest and a read by the pool yet this is now impossible. Can't we at...

We stayed 4 nights at start of February. Very classy, spacious and simply luxurious hotel. Nice big swimming pool (it never closes!) with excellent bar service to eat and drink. We took three of the hotel's offered tours and found them to be most enjoyable. The breakfasts were simply sumptuous - splendid array of juices, fruits , breads and more....

We have just returned from a 3 week tour of South America. In Rio we were unable to stay at the Hotel as fully booked, but decided to eat in the Cipriani Restaurant.

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
