10/10 Exceptional

Enhanced beauty
We wanted to stay at Arpoador because we had previously been to the restaurant and had a great experience in terms of food, service and ambiance. We weren’t disappointed when we booked our room. If we ever tome back to Rio we will definitely stay there again.The staff can’t do enough for you, even arranged our last minute transfer to Ilha Grande. We had to leave early before breakfast was ready but they made a bag of sandwiches, biscuits and water for the minibus. Other hotels could learn a lot from Arpoador.

Overpriced for what it offers
Very small hotel. No breakfast buffet, just simple breakfasts. Overpriced for what it offers. People are getting great places at $100-250 a night. This one costs $535 a night. Not worth it. Right next to the beach is its only claim to fame, but the sound of the waves also makes it harder to sleep.

Outstanding location. Very nice view of ocean if you are lucky enough to land an ocean-view room. Only thing missing is a concierge service.
