On a recent trip to Vilamoura and having never been there before I choose as advertised the 3 star Rio apartments. On arrival the exterior of the complex was fresh and clean and appeared good value for money. Unfortunately that is where thing's went steadily downhill. The interior of the complex was very disappointing. It was dull and in dire need of a complete internal refurbishment. The hallways were dull and shabby and seemed to suffer from water leeks as for the duration of my stay there was towels on the floor of the hallways. On arrival in my assigned apartment things didn't improve. It was clean but very dull and in dire need of a completely update. The walls were badly marked, the ceiling in the bathroom was suffering from mildew problems as there was no ventilation, the kitchen was very dated and the units were in poor condition, the blind didn't work, there was only one plug socket and the handle of the electric kettle became very hot if re boiled. One of the chairs on the balcony was dangerous and collapsed if sat on and all the furniture supplied was old and very dated. The TV had no english speaking channels which is of no use to an international clientele. The pool area was not too bad but required modernisation and some new sun furniture. On the positive side the staff of the complex carrier out their duties very well and were very friendly and helpful. So Rio getting your act together and and get a completely internal refurbishment because you have a good location and externally the apartments look really good and are well landscaped. Three stars is possible but needs a lot of work
