Staying at Hotel Fasano was overall a great experience. The location is perfect, situated on ipanema beach, and close walking distance to copacabana. The pool is amazing. It is an infinity edge pool that has an incredible view of the ocean, mountains, islands and you can even see the Christ statue. The decor is hip and contemporary, the service throughout the hotel was very friendly and accommodating. It cost us $1,000 per night for an ocean view room. We were on the 2nd floor which was not great because the noisy street below was right in front of us and there are a million people walking around which doesn't give you a lot of privacy, we requested a room on a higher level but they didn't have any available. We got over it and it was fine. I wish we would have requested a room on a higher level when we made the reservation. The club in the hotel is fantastic. We're a married couple 34 yrs old no kids and enjoyed it there was a great DJ playing Brit dance music and American pop/dance music; the vibe was very cool. It was busy from midnight to 3am. The front desk staff are very friendly but a little clueless, so is the concierge. Dont rely on their advice for dinner reservations. We wanted to go to a churrascarria / brazilian steakhouse, they sent us to a dump called Porcao. The atmosphere was like a cheap Chinese buffet. There were a bunch of badly dressed tourists and empty tables at 8:30pm on a Friday night. We left and went to fogo de chao in the botafogo area and it was great. I hated to go there since its a chain that has restaurants in the US, but it did not disappoint and they have a great deck that overlooks the bay. I also hate to bring all this up in a hotel review but the point is do your own research don't rely on their staff to make good dining reservations for you they probably get a kickback for recommending the places that are on their "preferred list" (they also gave us a ticket to bring with us to Porcao that said that we were referred by hotel Fasano). One last thing, if you are thirsty they have bottles of water at the front desk that they will give you for free...that's a cheap-o comment but at hotels like this that charge a decent amount for water in the mini bar its a nice little score. :)
