“Rio Mar, where the river meets the sea”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Rio Mar – where the river meets the sea

Rio Mar is a beautiful spot along the ocean, a short way from Coronado and when the tide is out, provides long stretches of beach for walking. We walked all the way to San Carlos and rarely saw another person. When the tide is in however, the rocks are hidden making it less swimmer-friendly though the surfers didn’t seem to mind. The beach front condo is wonderful and fully equipped including a washer and dryer. The grounds are immaculate and the staff is very accommodating. You have your choice of three pools, a restaurant and spa as well as the beach out front. The condo balcony overlooks the grounds and the ocean and is lovely at night.
But a word of caution, there is construction on-site which makes it difficult to enjoy the balcony or the pools. However, we were pre-warned by the owner who was assured the noise would be minimal. It was not. During our second week the steam shovels, earth movers and dump trucks arrived but we were too far into the vacation to leave and find another place. All along the ocean front as far as you can see in both directions, developers are carving out the bluffs for high rise towers so it won’t be the same even a short time from now.
It was also very noisy on the weekends when the families arrive and children fill the pools. Obviously, if you’re bringing your family you probably won’t mind. There is an acoustical quirk at Rio Mar so even though you’re on the 20th. floor, the children in the pool and playground below sound like they’re playing on the balcony next to you.
The owner, Rob was gracious and apologetic but he may need to readjust the price in light of the construction. It’s pretty costly if you can’t relax and enjoy the amenities of this beautiful area.

Management Response

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for all the nice things you said. To those reading this review, there is a new tower being built on the opposite side of our building and from the few days I have been there during the week, sometimes working from the apartment, the noise has not been an issue once inside the apartment, but from 8am to 4pm Mon to Fri they will be working so the balcony and the upper level pools will be affected by it. This reviewer is a writer and had come to both relax and to work, so I understand the issue with the construction noise, but I was a little surprised to hear that the children playing was bothersome. We have honestly never even noticed it and have never heard any complaints about it before from our many guests. Having kids on the weekends is a blessing for us since we have two ourselves and they have lots of playmates at the pool or the park area. Please read our other reviews here and you can find us on several other rental websites. We are open to negotiating the price for weekly rentals during the construction and I will post that on the ad. Thanks again.

“Fabulous Family time at the Beach!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This place was above our expectations. It was so beautiful and quiet, nestled right on the beach. It had wonderful pools that we took advantage of even after our swim in the ocean. Our condo had everything we needed from a fabulous kitchen to air conditioning to a great patio and beautiful views. We took our own food but we also had a few snacks from the restaurants, it was delicious. Everyone was very nice and helpful with whatever we needed. We asked for a tent down at the beach and they brought it down for us. I would highly recommend it! The owner was very helpful and easy to work with! If you are looking for a great place for a beach experience this is it!! We hope to go again!
