Hotel Del Rio
Ranked #8 of 33 Hotels in Iloilo City
Reviewed November 22, 2011

I had previously stayed in a hotel in Smallville (I reviewed it already) and was far from pleased, even though I was told it was a great hotel. Del Rio is another experience entirely! We have had a wonderful time staying here. The food is good to great, the location is excellent (centrally located between downtown and SM/Smallvile), and the service has been top notch. The staff here is extremely friendly, and have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome and valued while staying here. The room itself is quite clean and very nice. The only down side really is that there should be free wifi in my opinion. I'm not big on staying in a higher end hotel and then being charged for internet.

I strongly suggest that you spend an evening relaxing by the river with a couple of drinks, some good conversations, and some great food. It is definitely a great way to end the day!

Room Tip: You can get a room overlooking the river, but be aware not to get one that is directly over the ball...

This 5 star hotel is located at the center of Iloilo City, Philippines. Rooms are well-kept, especially the toilet. Others staffs were very accommodating but others were just discriminating. Sad to say, if you're not a foreigner, they will not attend to you immediately. The foods at the resto were great.

Room Tip: Call for reservation. You can choose rooms that are facing the river at the back of the hotel.

The hotel had the essentials, function rooms, decent-sized rooms, small pool, cafe. Not quite sure if they have an actual restaurant but we were able to order room service. They did not have a working elevator when we stayed there in June 2011 which was inconvenient for our older companions. The bathrooms seemed clean enough until a leak in in the bathroom ceiling was discovered. In addition to that, we found out that the shower needed at least 5 minutes to warm up to get a hot shower. The staff were very hospitable though and was quick to respond to our requests.

Every time we visit Iloilo city, we have always stayed in Hotel del Rio because of its location, however, this time we checked out earlier than our intended stay of 11 days. Why? Our room was right on top of their ball room. They had parties going on almost every night we were there. The bass of their sound system was so loud that you feel the whole floor/room vibrating. These parties would go on till past midnight. We can understand that they have to accommodate these parties but don't you think they should consider their other paying guests as well? Maybe set a time limit to how long these parties should last. We were on vacation and we didn't have to be subjected to these inconsideration. We have complained to the front desk multiple times but what else can they do . Also, how about having fireworks at midnight right outside our hotel window.We have decided to transfer to another hotel instead. Other than the sound issue, the service was okay. I don't think we want to stay their again. They can do better with their breakfast buffet.
By the way, they only provide towels. you have to ask for washcloths each time if you need it.
Their WI-Fi was a hit and miss. You may have a connection now or you may not.

We stayed at the newly renovated rooms of the hotel and it was really nice. The beds really provided as very good sleep. The room was clean and looks very updated. The staff were all very nice and fast. The breakfast and lunch buffet were really good.

We loved hanging out by the terrace near the river. We were really able to relax.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here at this hote and transferring to this hotel really saved our Iloilo trip after staying for one night in another hotel.

This Hotel is definitely one of the best hotel in Iloilo City, Foods are great but what makes the difference are the waiters, the most accommodating waiters i have ever met. Our family love to stay and dine in this hotel for that reason. They made us feel like we're home and there's a warmth in the way they would treat us! Kudos to them! Hope they will keep it that way. Rooms are great too, it's newly renovated and the location is best for a quiet and private time with family. I'll definitely keep coming back in this hotel. I highly recommend their chicken potato salad, sizzling chicken and steak. It's a must try!

Booked few nights in Del Rio but after a sleepless first night we checked out. Very noisy AC and noisy location. Also nothing in a walkable distance around the hotel. When we asked the reception what to do in he region they were clueless. Even tried to sale us a map which is free usually and didn't think of recommending the travel agency inside the hotel...???...
The good thing about the hotel is the back. Nice restaurant by the pool (small) along the river.
So after a quick search we realized that Del Rio is over priced then moved to Century 21. Half cheaper, quieter and the staff helped us above our expectation.
