Area description
Leblon is a district meant for walking. If you choose the Oceanside, you will be able to cross the district- from jardim de Alah to the Visconde de Albuquerque canal-in thirty minutes and it is hard not to stop along this itinerary. Leblon has a wonderful assortment of restaurants and bars (for all kind of pockets), very beautiful people and a family oriented sidewalk that merge the natural attractions of the Zona Sul and a friendly neighborhood environment.

As the locals would say the best leblon is that you may go out at night on your sandals or high heels, no difference you will always find a good place to go, besides running into Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro or Chico Buarque, brazillian prestige celebrities while cruising the side walk.

The hotel is only 5 minutes from Lpanema and 10 minutes from Copacabana.

Spectacular

The Marina Palace is right on Leblon beach, the less known neighbor of Ipanema and Copacabana that is equally gorgeous. The views are spectacular and beach service means you can walk the to beach in your swimsuit and staff there sets you up with towel, chair, and umbrella for free and a waitress for drinks. Bike rentals available in front were a good way to get around, since there's a bike path along the beaches. Staff were plentiful and helpful, but beware that a minority of them speak English, so you may need to go to a second person when you need something. Our room was spacious and comfortable with great views. A great place for vacation!

Great hotel - great location

The hotel is right on the water and our room had beautiful views of both the Christ and the beach. We had to ask for a renovated room, though, as apparently the older ones are quite run down. Our renovated room was nice, clean and very comfortable. The hotel breakfast was great with fresh fruit etc...and the beach amenities were just what we needed. The only two complains are that there was a terrible sewage smell in the lobby that was really unbearable and internet was very costly. For those of us from abroad who depend on wifi - I paid ~$20 for 24 hours of access to wifi.

Perfect Location, old Facilities

This Hotel is just at Leblon Beach, best beach and neighborhood in Rio. Walking distance close to great restaurants, bars, shops and most beautiful beach in Rio. The facilities are old, with noisy AC and windows that do not open (bedroom) or that do not close (bathroom). Be Aware they charge you extra for Internet USD 20 per day and parking USD 25 per day. Breakfast was avarage. Overall I recommend!

Great location

The location can't be beat. It's in the middle of LeBlon on the beach, and close to all of the great restaurants. The actual hotel does lack some amenities. For example, the shower wasn't great. Our safe was initially broken. The "free wifi" does NOT work so do not rely on that. However, I have to say the staff were really nice and helpful, especially considering we did not speak Porteguse.

Good location

The location is great! On the beach, and close to the best restaurants. The amenities are a bit lacking- the wifi does not work at all, shower was just ok. However, the staff were wonderful (even though we didn't speak Porteguse) they really tried to help us with restaurants, reservations, etc!

Great location, rooms need refurbishment

Ipanema and Leblon beaches are without a doubt the best places to stay in Rio. Of the hotels comparable to Marina Palace, this is the best price. Rooms could use some upkeep.

excellent location but..

facing Leblon beach and has beach service. But old 80s furniture (clean) means it's a bit pricey. Good breakfast, excellent variety local fresh fruits.

Fun in the Sun -- Great Leblon Hotel

Hotel was a great find. The area is very safe and comfortable. Walking distance to beach (accross the street), bars, great restaurants, and shopping. Rooftop bar is amazing for laying out. Drinks are a bit pricey, but not out of control. Service is kinda slow; you're on vacation so not a big deal. Rooms are good sized, we were in a renovated one and it was nice. Shower was amazing (size & pressure). View from room was very good. Tip: Go to the grocery store a few blocks away to get cheap water, wine, beer, and vodka. It's just like a safeway.

Buy booze, water, wine, & snacks at the grocery store. It's cheaper than hotel or duty free.
