This apartment is the best option in Rio! It is right on the beach, close to amazing restaurants and bars which made our days soooo easy. We trully felt like locals, having breakfast in the open balcony surrounded by green and watching the ocean, just before putting our flip flops and walking to the beach for a morning swim. Coming back to a clean apartment daily was such a nice touch and the maids are so lovely - every other day we would come back home and find fresh juices and coffee. We felt so spoiled and will not think twice before choosing Alex's penthouse again for a future trip to Rio!
