Was a great stay. Thank you. I looked at some of the review before I booked and always take with a pinch of salt if just a few negative comments anyway. If the look of the hotel looks good and you have a general feel for it, generally it will be good. This place is definitely worth staying. Soon as... More

Just back from a five day break at Rio real hotel. We stayed in an eagle suite. The view over the golf course and the mountains was lovely to wake up to in the mornings. Room was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. The pool area was peaceful and never crowded. A oasis of calm in a very built... More

Strengths - Anything to do with golf. The course is beautiful, the driving range is pleasant and lessons with the golf pro (Sergio) were excellent - The clubhouse is lovely, with super friendly staff. The beers were always cold and the food was largely good. For breakfast it's a choice of eggs any style or a decent English breakfast. For... More

I stayed in this hotel to attend a wedding of my friend at Trocadero beach, few minutes away. The hotel is very nice, rooms quite big and with all comforts. I am not a golfer but the facilities seemed to me really good. staff was friendly. the hotel has also a nice terrace with pool.

We stayed here before, and were looking forward to another relaxing break at this hotel. We stayed in the eagle suite again. The room is fantastic, i love the bath tub with a view. The rooms are really clean. We had a good night sleep, but the pillows were too soft. Golf course is well maintained. At first we were... More

We played here nearly four years ago and it beat the group of 12 "golfers" up. So we promised the next time we visited Malaga we'd make the trip to Rio Real. The course was in great condition and it once more beat us up but not as badly this time. Greens were fast and the fairways were in great... More

This was our second trip to Rio Real. A four night break mid may, the hotel is beautiful and the golf very good. We stayed in one of the Eagle Suites which overlooked the course and was of a very high standard. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We didn't get to dine in the hotel preferring a short...

We were here in May '14 for 10 days and the golf course was in nearly perfect condition. It would have been perfect if the bunkers were more kept with finer and more sand. The Hotel was also 'Very Good' not 'Excellent': the service was friendly but somewhat slow, depending on the people working. We had one evening when two... More
