We arrived on Mon and luckily reception was open however,the poor girl was dealing with a very irate foreign lady complaining g about her room so it took us 45 min... More

Just returned from a week at the Rio Apartments and had a great time, read the reviews on here prior to going & was slightly apprehensive to be honest, the only 2 things that I would mark the place down on is the condition of the pool (tired and in need of TLC) and our 'bed' this was infact a...

Stayed at the rio apartments from August 26th to september 4th. Upon arrival reception was closed but we had expected this from previous reviews.. However there is a number to call but seeing as there was a notice to say reception opened at 2:30 and we arrived just after 1 in the afternoon we thought this would be a good... More

My partner and I stayed at Rio Apartments during August 2014. Upon arrival (10.30am), we were informed by the receptionist that check in wasnt until later in the day, however she said our room should be ready at around 12pm. So, with this in mind, we sat by the pool in the bar area, thinking we only had an hour... More

The hotel is a 3 star and it is worthy of those 3 stars. I would have rated it 'Good' rather than 'average' or 'very good' but swayed towards very good due to the staff being so nice. In brief. The rooms - We stayed in a twin room with very comfy beds. Bathroom was a good size with a... More

Having just returned form a week in August 2014 I can honestly say I would not return. I had read Trip advisor prior to going and booked based on some of the reviews posted. On arriving we were greeted warmly which was pleasant enough and the room was reasonably clean and tidy. The towels were changed once whilst there for... More

Just back from Rio apartments, 2 females aged 26 & 30. I took a chance booking this place based on reviews I had read on trip advisor. It was a great place to stay. I had booked a studio apartment for me and my partner, it was the largest studio I have ever stayed at. However the bed was actually... More

we booked this for a second family holiday so were looking for a bit of a bargain and we certainly got one. Yes the apartments maybe a little tired but they are exceptionally spacious with separate kitchen, bathroom (with bath) and two comfortable beds. The kitchen was well equipped. Balcony was compact but very usable. We also stayed in 203... More
