This was our first stay at the rio. Previously stayed at the regente hotel.it was clean, the food was ok, I woukdnt say it was better choice than the regente. The thing we hated was the racket at night, the walls are beyond thin and the 8th floor seemed to be full of louts. Very inconsiderate, woke my 6yr old daughter on a few occasions. The entertainment was not up to much and not for kids at all. Thr regente had great entertainment at night and was great for kids during the day.

The shop at the hotel was good to have and there was a nightly game of bingo if you like that sort of thing.

The staff were generally pleasant with exception to the bar staff whom were quite rude on occasion and just seemed to want tips on their saucers when returning change.

Went with thomson who were great, the reps were fab, we had a free child space which had swayed us to stay there this time. we had a bus put on each trip we went to terra natura and mundomar.

When about in benidorm we had been reading alot of comments about muggings and crime, but we can honestly say we seen nothings, the police patrols have increased around the town especially at the beach front and we felt very safe

first things first paco the barman what a great chap you are,the hotel was very clean most of the staff are happy some of the waiting staff look at you like you have just pissed on there kids. but i was on holiday so let it slide. the food was very nice a good selection the house sprits in the bar were very cheap ,i had a singel room beware if you are a solo traveler pay the extra for a twin or doubel or this is what you will get, when you get into bed no matter which end if the bed you are you with ether hit your head on the dresser or you will hit on the oppostit wall where the wardrobe is when you want to got to the toilet you have to sit on it sideways and then move your knees round whist you sit there you can rest you arm on the sink one side and your other arm on the shower/bath and if your not carefull when you step out of the shower you will end up with your foot in the toilet the only good thing is because its a small room the air con works a dream. all in all though a good holiday if you want a cheap but nice pint head to the cheap and cheerfull bar walk out off the rio park turn left then immidate right walk about 300 meters its on the right happy holidays 1 euro a pint esstrella dame very nice

Room Tip: 6th floor and above as its quiter

When we seen it was a 2* hotel was abit concerned as we were here for two weeks but how wrong we were should be at least a 3*. The food is the best i have had in a spanish hotel so much choice and really good standard. The staff are really freindly and they put on staff shows during the week which are really funny and not to be missed. Also the other entertainment they put on is really good the drinks are cheap and so is the food for snacks. The rooms are really clean and are cleaned daily the only thing wrong is the maids singing very loudly in the mornings early as to wake you up.The pool area is very large and well maintained the hotel is very very clean and very safe if i was to say it is best for adults not families but nothing wrong with taking families there thought better for adults. Very good location about 5 mins from all the shops and night life but very quite and area very nice, The staff work really hard can see why people go back we will.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view

A bit shabby but v clean. Ok for a 2 star though. Bizarrely lots of people go back for years and years! Entertainment very very cheesy, almost comical. Food and drink by the pool very cheap indeed and whilst limited is nice. The food in the buffet restaurant is absolutely SHOCKING!!! Plenty of sun loungers. Staff on reception helpful. Hotel shop sells lots of essentials. Can be v noisy at night so take your ear plugs.
But you get what you pay for so ok for a 2 star. Free wifi in reception.
Lots of lazy people on disabled scooters who could clearly walk but couldn't be bothered too!

We visited this hotel for 2 nights whilst staying with friends. None of us had been to Benidorm before and thought 2 nights would be sufficient. For a 2* hotel this one was excellent. The rooms were adequate and we had pool views on the 6th floor. Towels could have been a bit fresher. They were clean but very old and threadbare. The swimming pool was very good. It was sectioned off for children, serious swimmers and in-betweens. The prices in the hotel bars were no dearer than outside. Probably because of all the competition. The biggest plus was the food. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Everything you could think of at breakfast. Lots of different cereals, fruit, cold meat, cheese, salad. Hot food was pancakes, omelette and everything for a full breakfast including black pudding. The only downside was that the tables weren't cleared quickly enough. We ended up piling our dirty plates on another table. Think this was due to a lack of staff rather than laziness. Could certainly spend time at this hotel again. 3* quality as far as I'm concerned.

took my partner to benidorm for her first visit which she was dreading. the rooms at this hotel are functional but nothing compared to our recent trips to mexico. when we went to our evening meal we were pleasantly surprised by the choice and quality which surpassed the riu chain. breakfast was equally great. the pool was too deep to stand in so we spent most of the time in the smaller section.overall we would be happy to return as by the end of week we didn't want to leave.

Myself, partner and son (4yrs) have just spent a week at Hotel Rio Park, Benidorm. Overall our stay was very good and the hotel seems better than a 2*.

Pros - Pool is big, food is ok with plently of choice, rooms have lots of cupboard space, staff are helpful and friendly, location is good not far from beach and shops, close bus stop that takes you to zoo for around €1.50 each, shop on site for drinks etc, glass elevators are a nice touch.

Cons - Childrens activities are poor, hotel entertainment caters more to the elderley customers, balcony doors are quite easy to open which is quite nerve racking being on the 7th floor with a 4yr old.

A soft play or kids club would really stop children being bored on an evening, i would have paid for these sessions. A lock fitted to the top of the balcony doors would stop little ones wandering.

If we return to benidorm we would probably stay again at hotel rio park as there are more pros than cons.

Tip: We requested a pool view a few weeks before holiday via email. This was granted and we were given a bottle of wine upon arrival because of our kind email. Good customer care :-)
