Me and my friend enjoyed staying at the relais. It was very quiet, clean and the staff was always friendly and helping us with all our questions - no matter how stupid they were. Also the food was very delicious. And we loved the pool with its way down to the sea. Thanks. Merci and Obrigada

Le Relais is a great place for couples that want to be in Rio but without the rush of the city. The hotel has a great pool, an incredible spa place and also easy access to the sea where is possible to see many turtles. The breakfast was also very good and close to the property there are many places... More

The hotel has a great location where it's foundation was built on a huge rock, so part of it hangs above the ocean. The view to the beach is amazing. Also, surfing and stand-up pattle boarding are available and the hotel provides boards. The staff is super nice and prompt. Remember that you always get what you paid for, so... More

Spent one night with my wife and was impressed about the location and quality of everything (even french soap). I stayed in the fanciest room and was an amazing experience, where you could spot the beach from anywhere in the room.

You can book a day spa with massage and pool included, starting at 170 reais. The place is nice, the alcoholic beverages are cheap and good. You can also have lunch in the restaurant, the food is good, and the desserts are really specials.

My wife and I spent one night at Le Relais. We had a good time, but could be much better if the quality of the services was not poor.

This is one of the places you always come back. It is not just the facilities, the architecture, the location.
