The apartment I stayed faces the beach. The apartment's balcony is a great place for breakfast and sunset views. The building has a swimming pool and the market at the ground floor is a great convenience. Excellent spot.

Located across the street from a stunning beach with a grocery shop downstairs. Site also features a salon which we tried and were very happy with. Wish there were more amenities for kids but the beach keeps them busy. The cafe part off the supermarke is handy although not atmospheric as it is no more than a tent with tables.

Was here on an extended stay due to business meetings in the area. The value was great as it was close to 1/3 of the price compared to hotels there. The location is great with the beach just a short walk across the road. There is a pedestrian light just in front of the hotel to make it easy to...

The rooms can fit to 3 pax and the price is logical comparing to the very expensive hotels in Rio. There is a swimming...

It was the perfect holiday! Everything worked so nice! The penthouse I´ve stayed had it´s own terrace and pool. I have no words to explain what it´s like to watch the sunset in Rio from the penthouse. I also loved Barrabella hotel´s facilities: I only had to cross the street to go to the beach, everything was clean and working...

Planned to spend 5 days there, stayed only overnight and went elsewhere. There is actually a lot wrong with this hotel. Here are a few of my complaints: 1. In a 2-bedroom suite only one of three air conditioners was wroking. 2. Floors were dirty. Carpeting apparently had not been cleaned for a very long time. 3. Paperwork and procedures...

“Choose SV rooms, the highest possible to see the beautiful Barra beach. Learn some Portuguese before you go to Brazil because very few people speak in English even in Airports and hotels.”
