I found hotel Rio Malecon to be a very clean, quiet and very reasonable hotel option, one block from the bay and a convenient 10-minute walk to Isla Cuale and the Zona Romantica. Our room was basic, but clean and well-kept-up by housekeeping. The a/c worked well, the pool was clean and inviting, and the ground floor restaurant was excellent... More

A short block from the beach, paid just $45 American per night--which I thought was great, but there are equivalent accommodations for even less. The rooms are a bit small, but clean. Due to booking schedules they placed me in a second room for the final three days of a 14-day stay-- it was an upgrade at the same price.... More

Well, gadzooks, I'm glad many reviewers find this place acceptable and even then some, but for us, it was woefully under-furnished, noisy, and either barely clean or as-clean-as-old-tiles and distressed walls and furniture can get. The location is great and the front desk staff very helpful. But we found the room sub-par and the traffic noise, which started rattling right... More

Very disappointed. Was quoted a lower price than was charged and was treated very badly when I called their attention to this- I was rudely ignored and made to wait while other customers were served. The room was small and smelled like dust and diesel exhaust, the restaurant was not operating,and the worst joke was a sign promoting third night... More

Comfortable, practical, economical and user friendly. Their staff is always willing to help. Conveniently located in downtown nearby the markets and just a couple of meters away from the sea. Remarkable experience.

This hotel is perfectly located. It's one block from the Malecon and in walking distance of everything: the flea market, the romantic zone and numerous restaurants and galleries.
