    This hotel is so large that it's quite impressive how personalized my service and attentiveness was during my stay here. The stay wasn't perfect, but what made it five stars, and dare I say six, in the service category, is how they ameliorated situations and truly wanted me to have the best time of my life here. And I did.|I want to personally thank guest relations manager Patricia, and Jose and Douglas in the cafe, Vinicius as the concierge, Anderson, Carlos in the breakfast and bar areas, and the warm breakfast hostesses, the pleasant pool staff and bar attendants, the welcoming porters...everyone made service and attentiveness such a high priority that I felt like I was a special guest.|I would suggest, in general, for improvements, that they don't play music at night after sundown. The higher priced view rooms all get the brunt of the sound, and if one wants to work remotely or watch TV or just get some quiet, it's not possible. |The elevators are extremely fast and that is so important in a large hotel with many floors.|The room service staff and housekeeping staff are great, but also sometimes say they'll be back for such and such and don't return. I won't go into specifics about that here.|The pool areas are beautiful and since they have two, it would be nice if one of the was a "quiet" pool, meaning no kids. There were children in both pools and as everyone knows they like to scream. One family had their toddler in diapers swimming in the shallow area and I was aghast. |I wouldn't hesitate to return here. I feel like in every area I went to, there were staff who not only recognized me on a daily basis, but warmly welcomed me, and I truly think they are kind folks at heart, and I am amazed this type of personal service is possible in such a large place. I've stayed at Belmonds in Brazil and this Fairmont personalizes the service far beyond what I've experienced in other luxury resorts before. While there were imperfections, it's how they went above and beyond to erase the negative and flood with the positive that makes this place shine. I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

    Unlike other western hotel brands in Brasil, this one lives up to the expectation of a proper 5 star hotel. Service is top notch, the rooms are comfortable and well maintained and the entertainment and food all meet expectations. There are two beautiful pools and as expected, they're the perfect place to lounge around for the day. The spa was also lovely and I recommend getting a massage if you need a good proper one. The only downside for me was the breakfast was average. This isn't necessarily an issue with the Fairmont but Rio in general as there's something missing in the quality of the meat dishes if you're used to western breakfasts. Overall a great stay and highly recommended!
