NileGuide Expert Says:
A popular place with surfers taking advantage of the great waves at Arproador. The beach is lit and relatively safe at night, allowing 'surfistas' to carry on well past sunset.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Rooms with sea views are more expensive, but well worth the indulgence if your budget can stretch to it.

With a great location right on the beach at popular surf spot Arpoador, this small hotel offers fantastic value for money. Arpoador lies between the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, so beach bunnies will be spoilt for choice. The road in front of the hotel is completely closed to traffic, and guests eating at the hotel restaurant can enjoy their meals and drinks right on the sands.
It is possible to use the golf facilities at the neighbouring Gávea Golf Clube.
