We've stayed at the Rio numerous times. They've spoiled us completely. Guadalupe the manger is wonderful. She takes care of everything. The location is ideal being downtown and only 1 block off the beach. The rooms are clean , nice quality sheets and towels. New flat screen TV's. The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic.

Bright, clean rooms, Eco friendly for no waste of electricity... pretty cool & high tech! The staff are friendly, the price is very reasonable (I'm pretty frugal!) Nice daylight coming into our room, a deck to sit outside & some views, tv, internet, there's a pool, a good restaurant called Coexist downstairs, location is great. We had a kitchenette but...

This property is well maintained, great restaurant, but is on a number of bus routes, which make this a very noisy hotel. The quiet rooms are 101, 102, 201, 202 The front desk staff tends to give out information that is not accurate. It would have been better if we had been told on check in the restaurant is closed...

We just left the Hotel Rio on Saturday and loved it! We were there for 2 weeks and were treated wonderfully by the staff. The restaurant staff (Sergio, Nacho, Niva, Jose, Moy and Ricardo) were quick to serve and always near by if we needed anything. Our room was always cleaned by 10AM by Guatalope. We would definitely stay here...

My friend and I had a great short stay here. The rooms were very clean and the staff were friendly. One gentlemen at the front desk went out of his way to assist us in finding a cab which we really appreciated. The food at the restaurant was very good and the drinks were even better! Very cheap happy hour...

If you are not a needy person this is absolutely the perfect location. Service was spot on, we were one block form the Malecon and within walking distance of everything. would much rather be here than an all inclusive resort. Staff was extremely attentive and responded to requests immediately. I left some things behind in the room and they kept...
