We stayed at the Porto Rio from 08.09-to 18.09.2016.Hotel is generally ok/but needs renovation/, with spacious rooms/ thin walls/, very good food, beautiful and well kept pools, and beautiful sandy beach. Unlike many other hotels which have their own beach here is the use of sun umbrellas and sun beds free of charge.Even the towells are available free of charge.... More

I might say that the hotel is perfect for business tranellers (and for casino players ). The nearest airport is that in Athens (El. Venizelos 2,5h distance). The rooms are cleaned every day, breakfast is perfect and the service also. Very kind personel. The nearest city is Patras (15mins away) but with no public transportation. The best location is the...

It must have been grand, once... We were upgraded to a suite, but a nice room would have been sufficient. The interior seemed badly maintained, especially compared with the reception area. And speaking about the reception; the brusque female receptionist didn't actually add to the stay... Bathroom was nice and clean. Breakfast is good, we enjoyed it on the terrace... More

We regularly visit Achaia for vacation to spend time with family. This visit, we decided to try the Porto Rio Hotel and Casino for a few nights, as its website describe itself "amongst the most modern for four (4) star hotels in Achaia." The description of the hotel cannot be farther from our experience...it was truly a disappointment in terms... More

The area is nice, the pool and the sea also, but this hotel is absolutely tasteless, for "nouveau-riche" travellers, while the personnel is mostly non-professional. As for the breakfast orange juice.... In an area full of orange trees they serve a horrible yellow chemical similee juice!

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. When we arrived, they didn't have our reservation, but honored the price I had on my confirmation and upgraded us to a Junior Suite for the inconvenience. The view from the upgraded room was awesome! We had a full sea view and from our other window, we had a sea/bridge/pool view. It... More

The Porto Rio is closer to Rio than to Patras - short walk to a number of enjoyable seaside restaurants and bars. Though clean, rooms were definitely showing signs of wear. The rooms were stuffy - central air didn't really work and the only way to cool down the rooms was to leave the window open. Water pressure was variable,... More

We traveled to Greece for our honeymoon and booked this hotel through RCI. The experience was not good at all we even stayed for two nights at another hotel in order to avoid returning to this hotel.
