I visited Hotel Rio in May 2013 as I was attending some kiteboarding events in the area and was recommend by a friend to stay there. The staff all treated me with great hospitality from the moment I arrived. I had a LOT of kiteboarding gear which they stored for me downstairs so I didn't have to take it up to my room. They were very friendly and it didn't seem at all that they it was a smile for a tip as you get in most hotels. The room was immaculate, lovely design and the best shampoo/conditioner/moisturizer I have ever seen in any hotel! All organic too! Even though the patio faced the high street, the glass was thick and I didn't hear a sound. I cant stand noisy hotels so this was ideal!
Downstairs in the Coexist Restaurant, the staff were also lovely and there was an extensive and reasonably priced menu. The food was healthy, tasty and well portioned. I noticed that many walk-ins were coming to dine which is a great sign!
I was traveling alone so it was nice to be looked after! I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't want to pay through the roof but is looking for great installations, awesome service, delicious cuisine and perfectly located, one block from the malecon/beach.
Congratulations Hotel Rio, raising the bar!
