We stayed in the Rio Real Golf for 3 nights for a wedding and weren't disappointed. Our room was massive with a super king bed and comfy sofa and armchair. The bathroom with duo sinks plus a seperate toilet and enclosed shower and lovely big bath. Plus loved the two wardrobes for myself and my partner. The hotel itself is...

Very basic spa - no what you expect from the prices which are equivalent to much better spas in the area. Worst of all therapist took no notice at all of requests of areas to avoid and particular areas to work on and carried on with her standard low skill routine regardless. You would hope that being a golf resort...

Almost a boutique hotel, not too big to be lost. Well kept, sizeable rooms and nothing is too much trouble. Bar facility very good with excellent views of the golf course and surround. The restaurant for an evening meal was excellent quality and well worth staying in for. Not too busy for us. Golf course not the best and marred...

This was our base for a lads 40th three day golfing holiday. The hotel is perfect. Well located, peaceful, stylish, understated with all the amenities and services you would expect from a five star hotel. It is right on the Rio Real golf course (which is 1st class) with views looking out over the fairways and up to the mountains....

Great place for a golf holiday, breakfast should be served a bit earlier. The room was spacious and very calm with a nice balcony overlooking the golf course. Nice bathroom and amenities. Mini bar prices a bit high.

Part of me wants to write four great reviews; 1 Resort, 2 Hotel, 3 Restaurant, and 4 Golf Course. However, for brevity's sake, I'll limit it to one. It is very difficult to fault the Rio Real. I booked a week for a golfing break yet what I received was complete relaxation in quality accommodation, a restaurant that stands shoulder...

Very good hotel. Large rooms and always tidy. Friendly and serviceminded staff. Maybe not the most exclusive course, but always in great shape. Great get-away for a golf weekend with your spouse and/or friends. The restaurant serves classic and good golf lunches. In the evening, good enough menu, but it seems that people prefer to take a cab to Marbella.
