Stayed there in October. Trip to Rio was amazing and the highlight was staying in the Utropico Guesthouse. Would recommend it without hesitation. A peaceful and safe retreat to return to each day after touring around Rio. It may seem a bit far out but was well worth the effort. Silvia + Francisco were wonderful hosts who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Would willingly fly to Rio again just to stay there.

Fun, sun , great atmosphere and a sense of true Rio. This is a great spot for relaxation, while close to the beaches etc of Rio. Silvia and her family made us very welcome in a very comfortable part of their home which is laid out in 3 sections. Each has it's own sitting and outside patio area as well as bedroom. The decor is tasteful. The property sits on the waters edge of an island with a beautiful tropical backdrop. Rainforests lie in the background while the hum of passing boats is interrupted by the songs of many varied and interesting birds and others (including a monkey). One is truly made to feel at home here. No trouble is spared in being very helpful with ideas and information about transport and tourist attractions. Breakfast is leisurely and varied with great fruits and Brazilian coffee. Although Utropico is a little away from downtown Rio, part of its charm is getting there by boat and a feeling of warmth and safety while staying there. We had a great time and look forward to our next visit.

El lugar esta muy bonito,incluso mas de lo que te muestra las fotos, la atencion perfecta, el desayuno delicioso. Ubicado en un lugar donde puedes disfrutar de la tranquilidad de la naturaleza pero muy cerca y accesible a las playas y al centro. Altamente recomendable

Excelente define la atencion y el lugar en general, un lugar muy distinto a todo lo artificial que se ofrece en otros lados, a diferencia de ellos, Utropico ofrece un servicio de hospedaje que hace que uno se sienta como en casa, rodeado de naturaleza y tranquilidad. A su vez, cerca de todo, esta en un punto muy bueno de barra da tijuca, dado que se puede acceder facilmente a la playa y al centro. La gente es muy calida y el servicio excelente, limpieza 10 puntos, desayuno RIQUISIMO!! Y el lugar en si es de ensueños, tal cual las fotos.
