I write this review being my second time around in Utrópico over a two year span. Silvia and Francisco have managed to create home in a perfect corner of this earth. I try to be as objective as I can but I'm in love with this space and these people. I stayed both in the studio and loft, first with... More

Its been a week since we have been back from Rio, where we spent a week at Utropico. It was our first trip to Brazil and after 24hours of travel we were most pleased to be greeted by Silvia, Francisco and Paulinho. Utropico is an amazing retreat from the big City of Rio. It is quiet, calm and very relaxing.... More

It's been a couple days since I've returned from my trip, so I've had time to digest my stay with Silvia and write a completely unbiased opinion. Here it is: the stay was incredible, and Silvia did everything she could possibly do to make us comfortable and help. My wife and I went with our two kids, aged 3 and... More

My husband and I just checked out of Utropico Guest House on Monday. :( We are sad to leave Rio and Brazil after a wonderful vacation exploring Brazil and celebrating the World Cup.

We arrived late with 2 kids 6 years of age. Everything organised by the owners(airport transfer and the taxi boat) We were blown away with this place.

We had a fantastic stay, which we would highly recommend to anyone. The apartment was lovely, it felt very exclusive and private in an idilic lagoon location. I had a conference to attend at the Barra Windsor Hotel, which was only a short boat ride and a short walk away. The stunning beach is close by and as are many... More

Loved every aspect of this home away from home. My girlfriend went for work at the windsor with an easy boat ride. I went surfing, biking, lying at the beach, or chilling at the pool. In an hour you are in central rio by bus, with the new metro line this will be even easier. I would recommend this to... More

We stayed at the studio at Utropico over the hectic new year period, looking for somewhere slightly away from the mayhem of Copacabana and Ipanema. We were not disappointed! The Ilha Primeira setting is stunning and the hospitality offered by Sylvia and Francesco second to none. Not to mention the fantastic caipirinhas and New Years / Revillon party :) Highly... More
