Weekend visit
Wonderful, exclusive property. Top notch personal and friendly service by the entire staff. I’ll definitely be returning again with my friends.

Vila Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro
The stay is an interesting experience. This is a two stories mansion located inside a large private estate up the hill. The villa itself has nice living areas modernly furnished and a small outdoor pool with amazing bay and mountain views. The room is spacious and clean. Welcome fruit and Italian brand bottled water are provided on the day of arrival. I have paid a premium for a room with balcony (over AUD 1,000 per night) however the villa checked me in a room without balcony and I was told the room I wished for had already been occupied. No refund was offered for this situation. Unlike an hotel, there isn't an official reception inside the villa. It is very hard to get service. There is only one person working as the receptionist who walks around the house and can hardly be reached by the phone provided inside the room. I literally had to searched around the house for the receptionist to get service attention. Not to mentioned other general services you can easily get by making a call. Breakfast is a la cart. Options are minimum. Overall, the highlight is the view. It is not indeed a luxury hotel.
