Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our family stayed here for two weeks. We were pleased with the friendly staff and comfortable room. The setting is beautiful - tucked away in the trees and separate from the beaches, whilst still close. Monkeys came to eat bananas from our hands in the mornings.

The staff were incredible and this little tucked away place was easy to get to everywhere by the #593 van. Very quiet and much personal attention. I found i a little more fun NOT staying on Ipanema or Cococabana, although we went there every day as part of something we were doing- surfing, eating, on he beach and then home to our retreat. Great for me, the grandmother, and my 18 year old gd. Very romantic to come again with my husband as well. Ranier, the concierge, speaks 5 languages, so you're set to explore Rio from this little gem of a basecamp.

I enjoyed myself...... everyone was great!!!! The Staff treated me as if i was there Family. i will never For get Marcelo, or Rahmeer, Or Mr. Matez, and his Wife Louisa..........Every Body was wonderful especially The owner John, and his wife Elena..........Every Morning Viviane and Louisa would always check on me and my roommate to see if we were ok.

Gavea tropical was charming and lovely. The location was somewhat inconvenient, but not too out of the way. Simple amenities, but Its beautiful views and the charming property made it a very nice stay.

The Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel is one of the most amazingly romantic and exotic hotels I have ever stayed in. Although it is a bit of a distance from the city life - it is only a five minute drive to downtown - you feel as though you have gone to paradice! We never wanted to leave our room!!

We stayed at Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel for our honeymoon in July 2012. Needless to say the Presidential Suite (Room #1) offers the same splendid view offered on the hotel's site. The breakfast included is not your typical continental bkfast, it is far more than that and worth getting up in the morning to savor. You can feed the monkeys sliced bananas! (macacao) The staff: Ranieri, Marcelo, Matias, Luiza, Tatiana, Eleinha, and John were formidable and made our stay very pleasant. The Hotel's proximity to the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema made it very easy for us to enjoy Rio de Janeiro. Since it is situated just ten minutes away from the beaches, the fact the property is situated in a private condo owned and housing real estate made it rather easy for us to commute back and forth during all hours of the day. In short, we could not have asked for a more pleasant hotel to enjoy our honeymoon. You will not be disappointed...
