Stayed here for 3 days. View of ocean from the room was amazing. The hotel is bit of walk from the beach. Rooms were very clean and spacious. There was a hot tub in the suite we stayed at. Will recommend.

It is about a 10 minute walk from Ipanema Beach,but worth it. The Italian Restaurant ' Bene ' in the hotel was so good that we didn't venture out too much... More

This hotel has a nice view of leblon and ipanema and the whole coast.

Hotel was generally clean, but a little tired in places, and the rooms were not immaculate - some silly little details like sinks not properly cleaned, very slightly damaged bed spreads, etc., but it did not affect the overall experience - Rio Sheraton Grand is a very good 4*+ hotel. Check-in was great, very efficient. The bar and restaurant staff... More

We stayed there during the Olympics and found it to be a great base. Our lovely corner room looked along Ipanema Beach, over the small private beach and also up to Christ the Redeemer.
