Love the location and staff atention! they would help you locate attractions and give you directions to have fun or fud or drinks. The hotel is ok, they made me keep quiet in the morning while I was having a conversation with a host. but is ok. I would stay again, no issues and cool people.

My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon at the Hotel Rio Malecon for a week. The location couldn't of been anymore perfect for a romantic getaway. Steps away from the Malecon, downtown, and the ocean. Sweet right?! The rooms had everything you needed, a bed, a bathroom and a small Kitchenette equipped with a beer fridge, sink, and... More

I haven't stayed at this hotel since about 1999, but it has been vastly upgraded and improved since my earlier visits. Yes, the outside looks the same, but the rooms have all be updated with tile floors, new beds, HDTV screens, undated bathrooms, and it is now air conditioned! This is not a resort hotel, and is not on the... More

This review is long over due with long over due thanks to the Excellent Manager "Lupita" and her staff members! This hotel is my favorite in PVR. As a retired airline employee I fly space available and am unable to make advance reservations. Hotel Rio is always very helpful, understanding & accommodating!

We were on a 5 week trip traveling around Mexico and stayed here for 2 nights before our flight home. It was perfect for what we were looking for. In old town a block from the malecon, close to restaurants and quiet at night. Very clean. Reception staff spoke good English and were very helpful. Please be aware that there... More

We stayed here the night before checking into our timeshare in Nuevo Vallarta. It's a nice, quaint hotel in a terrific location. I would not want to stay for an extended period of time but it was perfect for our needs. The bathroom counter is too small, if you were to stay there very long, you could not store your... More

We stayed at this hotel for a night before having access to our condominium. The hotel staff is very accommodating. The restaraunt is very nice and the decor is updated. I would recommend this as a hotel to stay near the Malecon. The location is very convenient for eating out and shopping.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here. We were upgraded from a room with 2 beds to a room with a king-size bed with a kitchenette. The fridge didn't work the whole time we were there but we didn't really care as we hadn't paid for it. The blow dryer also didn't work. Other than that, we found the... More

The hotel is well worth the money paid! It exceeds its three star rating by providing a really delicious and affordable restaurant with a chlorine-free pool. The staff are friendly, attentive and speak very good English. The room turn over service was really well done with fresh organic soap, conditioner and other products daily. Our in-room safe was present and... More

We chose this hotel based on the reviews on this site and the location. The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location. The place is dated, rooms where dirty, beds terrible, AC was either on or off, resulting in us getting sick, the pool is in the middle of the restaurant, so unless you want awkward... More
