An elegant refurbished hotel on Copacabana beach with a classy feel and service to match.
Attractive, contemporary Windsor Mar, one of the successful and expanding Windsor chain, directly faces Avenida Atlantica and the white sands of Copacabana beach. At the back the famous avenues laced with boutiques, juice bars and restaurants are within a 50m stroll.
The hotel underwent a full refurbishment in 2013 with the aim of making it one of the most prestigious in the portfolio. Now it's a classy mix of classical elegance and contemporary design; marble-effect walls, honey-coloured wooden floors and polished granite help create a “no expense spared” impression. The couple of hundred guest rooms are furnished simply and décor has a light touch, but they are embellished with top quality amenities: HD TV, IPod dock, Nespresso coffee maker and Trussardi towels and bed linen. There is free Wifi throughout.

"The hotel is easy access to the Bars, shops, restaurants. It is easy to get a cab to Ipanema. The view from the swimming pool is fantastic and you can access the floor during the sunrise and sunset. It is worth upgrading to a sea view. Breakfast is varied and caters for various diets."BS, Harrow
