Rio de Janeiro: Windsor Atlantica

Windsor Atlantica

The imposing 39-storey (well, maybe 38 as there is no 13th floor!)  Windsor Atlantica is the popular chain’s flagship property, towering over Copacabana Beach.  The facilities (including a rooftop infinity pool with sweeping beach views, a fully comprehensive spa and an elegant restaurant) the large, bright, contemporary rooms and especially the vast and varied breakfast buffet are definitely all first class.

 Step into the chandelier-laden reception area and you will be entering an obviously slick and professional establishment but it is immediately clear that in addition to welcoming holiday-makers the hotel caters for business and conferences and can be very busy, and staff may have little time to devote to the individual guest.  That said, with the hotel’s own beach service, free Wifi throughout and limousine taxis always available at the door, you may not have too many queries anyway.

What our experts say

This remains Copacabana's premier business and leisure hotel, with 500 rooms and facilities to match. The guest-rooms are excellent and spacious although the bathrooms are a little small, and a few amenities you might expect are missing (iron and board, coffee-making facilities).  I always enjoy my daily laps in the pool on the fourth floor and a good night's sleep is  guaranteed with sound-proofing and blackout curtains.
