I have been to Rio G Spa several times over the past 5 years, visiting from the US. Many reviewers criticize the place because they don't personally find a perfect match for themselves. Come on, guys! The attitude that guys criticize in muscle guys is nothing compared to the attitude that insists someone is supposed to be fascinated by you.... More

Although wildly popular this is not a safe play zone unless of course you bring your own condoms and lube. They provide one condom and after that charge a prohibitively expensive charge for extras. Providing one condom and no lube is negligent and bad practice. I mean they give the stuff away at public toilets and other venues. So for... More

This place has potential but the attitude of the staff makes it an absolute must avoid. Anything you request is treated as an interruption to whatever it is they are doing: folding towels, doing inventory....whatever it is, it's more important than attending to customers. Awful. Absolutely awful. Don't go.

The location is great as it is very near Ipanema Beach but, the clientele are for the most part snobby muscle guys looking for other muscle guys. The staff were nice as it was my first time and was not too sure about the way it worked (you pay on the way out). Was just guys with muscles walking around... More

I stopped by Rio G Spa during my visit to Rio de Janeiro. And, compared to the places I've been in the U.S., I found it to be a great place. It's clean and the men are hot. Some seriously good looking muscle men come in from off the beach a little past 6pm. If you go any earlier...you might... More

First you pay when you out we paid for 2 100 reals with one little of water bought inside cause we were thirsty no water fountain inside and after the dry and steam sauna it was tough. Not crowded at all you can smoke they give you only two towels and one condoms no lube.

Very clean sauna only full of gym queens and the attitude that goes with it. 8 empty cabins for 60 guys in the place...where is the action? The guys are waiting for guys even bigger than them instead of having sex!
