My wife and I stayed at the Windsor Atlantica as part of a group, from 20-23 december 2015. We found the hotel perfectly situated, on the end of Copacabana, directly across from the beach. We requested a High Floor, King Bed Room, non-smoking, and the Assistant to the General Manager, Rachel Villar, made sure we got a large room on...

Lovely hotel, friendly helpful staff, right opposite the beach which was spotless, from outside hotel looked a small building but was surprised to find it had 39 floors. Gorgeous view of beach & mountains, Sugar Loaf too from room. Felt safe out walking, will be a great place to stay during the Olympics. Would definitely recommend.

Great location! You could see it from far away and from the beach. It is a little bit at the end of copacabana but great for New Years and great views. Good breakfasts and clean rooms. The security was also really tight here and good air conditioning. Close to a market which was nice also.

A good deal for a 5-star beachfront hotel in Copacabana ($178). the double-bed room can accommodate 4 adults with comfort. The free breakfast is complete with omelette/tapioca bar, great selection of fruits, bread, cheese etc.

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
