In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Golden Tulip Ipanema Plaza Hotel, Rio de Janeiro
Great hotel, would stay again.
Great hotel, the pool was small but nice. The view from the pool isn't as good as the pictures, but it was great for the price. The pool closes at 8:00pm. You can see the beach from the pool, but the pool view is mostly of the city, including Christ the Redeemer. All staff spoke English very well, which was a bonus. They also let us use the pool later in the day, so even though we checked out and went to see some attractions, we were allowed to come back and use the pool. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is in the gay section of Rio so there were a lot of gay couples- we already knew this and don't care at all, but it isn't the right hotel for someone who is close-minded and bothered by guys holding hands. The neighborhood felt very safe, even walking around at night. The room was fine- it was a typical hotel room and not much to comment about. The water pressure in the shower was very high, but there be a way to adjust that- I personally like high water pressure. The breakfast was very good. There was water stocked in the mini bar in the room. We brought our own water, not knowing this. It was very quiet. I highly recommend and would stay there again.

Amazing Personal Service
I came there for 2 nights with my girlfriend and I rough some flowers but the vase broke. I left my room to eat and came back and they put the flowers in a beautiful vase. The service was impeccable and the location to the beach and restaurants were fantastic. The rooftop pool is special.

My stay at the Golden Tulip Ipanema Plaza Hotel was excellent. The management upgraded my room with a view of the ocean. They also were very helpful in providing me local stores and restaurants. Also close to the metro.
