Have been to this hotel several times. It is like a home from home. the standards have continued to be met in all departments. A special mention to the delightful receptionist Isabella and the staff in the breakfast room.

Swift check in, friendly staff, especially Miguel who had valuable local knowledge and interesting conversations. Hotel is spotlessly clean throughout. Room was modern and beds were comfy. Didn't feel bathroom needed upgrade as others have commented; compared to places like Greece they're absolutely fine. Sheets and towels seemed to be changed frequently. Breakfast did the job, fresh and varied range... More

A lovely little hotel with impressive decor and good-sized rooms with balconies - but does back on to a noisy bus station! The breakfast was good and there is a small-ish swimming pool and large terrace on the roof. The rooms were fine and I really liked the art-deco (I think?) interior. The rooms have free wifi with decent connection... More

Hi, and thank you for writing this kind review. We are always pleased when we have satisfied guests. Unfortunately, we have to admit that the busses and especially their drivers are quite a nuisance. We tried several times to convince them not leave their engines working for such a long time, but without any success. We even tried the police,... More

As previous reviewers have said, this hotel is spotlessly clean, has great staff, and is in a very good location. It was great having air con, and a fridge in the room, during the recent heat wave, when temperatures were hitting the high thirties. It was also great that the staff prepared an early breakfast for us on the morning... More

We had another lovely two week stay at Hotel Marina Rio. The public areas and rooms are very clean and the choice for breakfast is excellent. The staff are very professional, helpful and friendly. We arrived on my birthday and they made us feel very welcome and all wished me a happy birthday. The hotel is in an excellent location... More

We had 2 weeks at an apartment in Praia Da Luz which was wonderful and then moved to the wonderful Marina Rio I have waxed lyrical about the hotel before and we love it. There is only breakfast served in the hotel and that suits us fine as there are lots of fantastic restaurants in Lagos within a short walking... More

Clean & suitably spacious air-conditioned rooms and friendly, informative staff - noise from the aforementioned road saw off any chance of daytime tranquility on our marina-facing balcony, but sleeping was unaffected thanks to double-glazed doors.

Lovely hotel in a great location, walking distance to beaches, train station, bus station, marina and town for shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel was clean, modern and facilities were very good. The staff were extremely helpful particularly Miguel on reception. Good quality choice at breakfast, my only criticism would be the breakfast room was a little small so sometimes... More

This is a very pleasant hotel, spotlessly clean and well run. The location is great, across the road from the Marina (which, beyond boats, has a number of cafes and restaurants as well as being a pleasant place to stroll). The bus station is behind the hotel (get a room overlooking the Marina; it is worth the extra few euros).... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Marina Rio, the location is excellent, very clean rooms - as already stated the bathrooms could do with an update but worked o.k. We stayed three nights and the only reason I question the 4 star rating would be the breakfasts - it's not that the food wasn't o.k. but the tiny breakfast room... More
