Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. 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.

Optional extras

Pets are allowed for an extra charge of BRL 80 per pet, per night

We have included all charges provided to us by this property. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the unit you book.

I won't book this one again - See detailed comment
Really very poor and very slow Wi-Fi combined with very slow to come warm water for the shower and very tiny shower cubicle with very awkward access, not to mention slow elevators, of which one was broken leaving just one working for 15 floors. This all means that I won't come back. I'll stick to their other hotel, The Promenade Paradiso.

A week at the Promenade Barra First Hotel
There are several things I did not like about the hotel: 1. The internet in the room was extremely slow - nearly impossible to communicate with friends or relatives over Skype or FaceTime Voice or WhatsApp voice (forget about video chat). 2. There was no iron and ironing board in the room. 3. The swimming pool was not nice at all - it was quite small and the water was dirty. It was also impossible to get lounge chairs because there were so few. 4. The breakfast was not great.

Very Decent
Overall this hotel was very good. If you're looking to just be secluded or hit up the beaches in Barra de Tijuca, however not too much around. And wifi in the hotel is pretty spotty. Depending on your room location the wifi went in and out for a majority of our stay.
