We stayed here for two night prior to a week stay in Sayulita. We picked this hotel for price and location and it did not disappoint. You can walk anywhere from the Hotel Rio. The cafe on site was a great hangout spot too. The pool really wasn't a place to swim as the restaurant tables surround it so it would be awkward and you definitely wouldn't want your kids splashing around in the pool. Also there aren't and lounge chairs anywhere so you can't really relax in the sun. The room was small with two double beds and they were hard like most in Mexico but my husband likes that. Also they are in plastic so they crinkly when you roll over. The bathroom was clean though and there was plenty of hot water. Our bed had some nasty food caked on the side so that was a little gross but otherwise the room was pretty clean. We felt safe here and didn't expect much for the price so overall we were very satisfied.
