Lagoon, Rio de Janeiro

4.1
Named in 2012 as one of National Geographic's “25 Wonders of the World," Blue Lagoon has evolved from its infancy as a reservoir of geothermal runoff into a world of geothermal wonder.

The unique properties of its waters provide not only an enchanting lagoon experience, but also the patented, active ingredients in Blue Lagoon skin care: silica, algae, and minerals.

Blue Lagoon is located in a sprawling, 800­ year ­old lava field in the heart of the Reykjanes Peninsula – a UNESCO Geopark. Just 20 minutes from Keflavík International Airport and 50 minutes from Reykjavík, Blue Lagoon is simultaneously remote and easily accessible.

  • The location is nice, but the service is still uncertain. Is self-service, the waiters ignore customers. I was in a large group and it was a war to get ask for drinks and hot dishes that are "A la carte". At the time of the coffee was more dramatic. It took forever! The excuse is that through e get the coffee at a kiosk outside the restaurant. This all happened Sunday with the presence of the owner on site. The food is reasonable.

  • This multifunctional complex has cinemas, restaurants and bars and concerts. Lies on the banks of the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon and is integrated into the bike path around the pond. Well-planned space, pleasant, with an incredible view.

  • The Lagoon contains a diversity of options: cinemas, restaurants, shops. And the view from Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas is very beautiful!

  • Way too expensive compared to what is offered. One of the few vegetarian only restaurant in Rio is located here though, worth a visit.
  • In my opinion the lagoon complex has the best cinema in the city (only con is that it does not have a 4D or luxurious sofa as NY city center), with very comfortable seats and good quality screens. Also, they have sweet popcorn, missing in most of the venues of Rio. The restaurants upstairs have a balcony overlooking the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, it cannot get better than this.
  • A space with good restaurants with great view. Theater with several rooms.
  • Awesome place to come with family and friends. Food truck's, restaurants, scenery Nd movie theaters. What else could you ask for? ;)
  • Beautiful and excellent service, but very pricey
