Lovely beach with no hassle, warm pool, nice place to be based for a chill and explore the area. Pleasant staff. Good breakfast and club lounge with some rooms a nice extra. Great views down the beach and could even just see Christ the Redeemer in the distance!
Location a little out of town, (but walkable to Ipanema beach in daytime and a free shuttle every couple of hours.) Sea not kid friendly for swimming, big strong surf breaking on beach.

Amazing staff and a great location with Leblon and Ipanema beach within walking distance. The “private” beach access is only shared with some locals so it feels really safe! Great breakfast!
As long as you are fine with the rather “American atmosphere” of a hotel chain from the US there is nothing to complain about except that the sun sets quite early in winter due to a mountain directly behind the property. Leblon and Ipanema beach have longer sun exposures

Amazing ambience Great staff
A bit in the middle of nowhere, everything must be done by cab. But also good because who wants to escape the craziness of the tourism is in the right place.

The property was gorgeous and the pool was wonderful.
Nothing to dislike about the property. But I am upset with Sheraton grand rio because they didn’t handle a situation properly. My husband had money in his pants pocket and it was a zipped pocket. The pants were folded neatly on the nightstand. We discovered that $50 usd was taken from his money in his zipped pocket. When he realized I told him to look everywhere and we both did. Once we confirmed it was truly not there I called the front desk and spoke with the manager on duty that night. She came to my room and looked as well. She said her and head of security will investigate and interview the housekeeping in the morning. ( since the morning housekeeping are the only ones who entered) now the morning comes I get no answer or call. I decided to go down, there was a new manager and she said they are still investigating and keep in mind today is my check out Day now which they extended the time so this can get resolved. So I go about my last day into town and come back around afternoon. I go to my room pack n take a nap. I wake up at 4pm and check out is 6pm. They have never called. I called and by this time there is a new manager there and now he tells me they interviewed the housekeeping and they said they didn’t take anything they have been there for years and nothing like this has ever happened so I need to go to the police station and make a report. At this point I am upset I’m due to leave at 6pm for airport and he is now telling me this. I go downstairs to talk face to face. He reiterates what he said over the phone and I let him know I do not want to go to the police precinct can’t they come here and he said yes I can call them. I let him know I travel very often and showed him my passport and I don’t know if it the because of the way we look why we are being treated as such (we are young black couple). He assured me we don’t look anyway and that’s not the case.

The swimming pool area is great and the food is delicious!
It is sometimes difficult to set the temperature of the shower.

Concierge was amazing, they booked us an excellent helicopter ride which was the highlight of our holiday. We are very thankful to the beautiful people of the concierge. Breakfast was very good with a good view. Staff at the breakfast are genuinely nice. We had a problem with our ac on check in so they upgraded us to a corner room which had a better view than most rooftop bars in Rio. The ladies at the reception were nice.
Location of Sheraton is near Vidigal favela. Beach area looks amazing but it is open to everyone from outside. At some point we had an incident where a guy with a gun had two other guys on the floor down on their faces and everyone from the hotel just fled the beach. No shots were fired but was scary enough not to return to that beautiful beach. We found a small cockroach in our bathtub but was not a huge deal. During checkout I noticed that I was being charged the USD amount converted into Reals at elevated hotel rate, but when I refused they did their best to bring the price to the USD price I booked at
