A beautiful hotel located in Tijuca Barra is not.near the usual hustle and bustle of Rio. And, is not overrun with tourists. The service was superb. The dining experience delightful. And, the added bonus - the magnificent ocean right across the street. The hotel is also an excellent venue for your conference needs. Access your floor in the elevator with...

Rooms are quite dated but comfortable and the rest of the hotel is lovely and I was impressed with the breakfast and lunch offering. Staff were friendly and accomadating. Feels like quite a safe area of Barra and extremely close to a quiet beach.

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

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;...
