Good for families
We had a nice two nights at the Sheraton, kids love it! There were some issues in getting the room on time but the staff was very nice.

Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort, Rio de Janeiro
Not impressed at all
The pool is area is old and uninviting, the beach small and somewhat crowded. The restaurant by the pool had bad service and the food wasn't very good. At most Id rate this hotel 4 stars

Bait and Switch
We felt that they should have told us about their resort fee and what it included when we checked in instead of when we checked out. We never used any of the amenities b/c we were not informed about them. Regardless of the fact that we were not made aware of the amenities, we still had to pay for them. We felt this was wrong and we hope that it doesn't happen to someone else.
