Bossa nova dream
This place is a bossa nova dream come true. Has the feel of a lovely guest house…and can be very private if you get as lucky as we did.

My entire experience was amazing to say the least. The owner is welcoming and greeted me upon arrival. The personal chef is exceptional. It’s located in a gated community and the view is exceptional. I’d give it 10 stars if I could.

This is one of the most unique and breathtaking properties I’ve ever stayed at. The photos don’t do it justice. What I was most delighted by was the level of service provided by the staff. My biggest regret was only booking for 1 night. Looking forward to returning one day!

Ive stayed in many different places all over the world and I truly have to say that this is the overall best hotel Ive ever stayed at. Let me breakdown why. So, first of all, there is the actual house, which is basically a work of art. Then there's the location of the house which is on a cliff with stunning views in a very safe and beautiful neighborhood. Then after all of that, which would sell me on a place already, then comes the best part of the experience at cliffside which is the people that work there. Any need you have, any information about Rio you're curious about, the staff and the owner there are always on hand to help you. Ive never felt so taken care of at an accommodation before. So I just want to say thank you to everyone at cliffside and to the reader of this review who's never been there, book it!

4/10 Fair

Um projeto em construção...
A casa é linda e a vista espetacular. Mas ainda é um projeto em desenvolvimento. Não tem piscina, pois esta foi transformada em um lago com peixes (há quem goste de nadar com os peixes). Não existe um serviço personalizado e sofisticado que parecia ter. No quarto havia duas pias e só havia toalha em uma delas. Aliás, praticamente não há staff. As opções de refeição (jantar) são limitadas e muito simples, embora o chef seja muito atencioso e queira ajudar. Café da manhã com pães muito ruins. O preço é desproporcional para o que é ofertado. Mas todas as pessoas são muito simpáticas.
