Create an itinerary including Praia de Ipanema
A long stretch of warm sand, Praia de Ipanema is divided into segments by posts ("postos," as they’re known locally), which mark diverse lifestyles and interests of beachgoers from around the world. Posto 9 attracts visitors intent on spending the day leisurely relaxing on the sand, while Posto 10 draws sports lovers with ongoing volleyball, soccer, and footvolley games. Food kiosks stay open all day long, with beer and the traditional cachaça sold right on the water’s edge. Constant swells keep the water clean all year round, with a frequent strong undertow and oversized waves. Always be careful on this beach, and swim only where the locals do. Remember that on the weekends the sand does get very crowded, so go early to stake a good spot.

  • Nice beach to go to on your visit to Rio, I personally prefer Copacobana as it's nto as windy as Ipanema.

  • A very Brazilian stretch of great sand and water. It is part of a long stretch of beaches, Ipanema is in the middle.

  • A little bit late review 😊 but we enjoyed so much our time during the Carnival of Rio this year in April the room was really good ( thanks for the Upgrade 😊 you didn't tell us but we knew it and enjoyed it so much, for the view to the hill 😍 ) and the view at the rooftop pool was amazing on sunset ! Only the breakfast is the "hick" , with a higher quality you would attract far more people. And this one is not related to the hotel, but We thought the guest to our neighboor room smoked j*in and was quite loud ... we wanted to tell the reception, but it happened just the first night ( maybe they were gone after it ) and nothing bad happened again. The receptionost and the doorman were really really friendly to us 😊
  • Very well located right in front of Ipanema Beach. Breakfast was good and service as well. However, it needs a renovation… rooms are very outdated… the pool in the rooftop is tiny but the views are amazing. Overall a good experience
