We arrived at Resort Rio at 4.30am and was greeted with a drink and friendly faces and even though we were very tired the hotel looked amazing, We were shown to our room and couldn't of asked for a better room as we were on the 2nd floor at the end overlooking the pool 1 of the best rooms in the hotel. The room was huge with a lovely comfy bed seperate seating area and huge hall way with a dressing table and Wardrobe and a spacious bathroom with seperate bath one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels.
All staff at the hotel were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them especially the pool bar boys (Deepak, Rudy, Peter, Deston and the others I can't remember all the names) they made our stay even better!
The hotel is in a ideal location away from the hussle and bussle of Baga and Calangute but not too far away we hired a scooter for the 2 weeks (Very cheap) and Baga beach was a 5 minute ride from hotel.
Food at the hotel is also excellent and a variety of choice
Overall the hotel was fab and I would recommend staying there!

Room Tip: I stayed in 215 - 2nd floor overlooking pool if you want quiet room this may not be ideal as you can...

I booked 3 deluxe rooms for 5 nights from 26th April to 1st May 2012 for family and friends. Right from reservations to check out we were handled very well. The staff was ever so attentive and helpful. The property is amazing! Rooms are really large and some of them even have terraces! The poolside bar puts together some of the best cocktails I have had in goa. I am a regular visitor to goa and this was my first at Resort Rio. I have to mention.......we did have the time of our lives!!! I will recommend Resort Rio anytime.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are real value for your money! Try requesting for the rooms with attached terraces!

Hi,This is Dr. Nilesh and i was @Resort Rio for 4N/5D trip and just came yesterday from there.
First of all the property is very much new and being constructed in such a manner that you will find cleanliness at its best. Entrance is really looking rich and they are having cleanliness just superb in all part of resorts, rooms and restaurants....
It was just awesome resort and right from the first view to the last check-out it was just fabulous in each and every category. Staff of the resort is so much co-operative and helpful in each manner. They are very fast and very gentle to guide you.We were in Luxury Deluxe room and it was amazing with room interiors and luxury. Swimming pool was very much clean and clear and daily maintainance was carried out on regular basis. Mumma Mia was very much enjoyble. Food on Pickle Mango Restaurant was just amazing with superb taste and variety. I had been three times in goa in all different five to seven star of resorts but i had not seen such kind of food variety even on those resorts. Chef is cooking amazing stuffs. "Zaara" spa was awesome.

Property is very much near to baga and calangutte beach and you can have different vehicles on rent right from the resort gate so it is having benefit of not staying in noisy area near beach and still you are very much near that you can explore entire area in few mins.

In short if you wanna feel comfort, class and luxury alongwith if you wanna enjoy your holiday at its best no choice except Resort Rio in North Goa..............

Room Tip: Choose Luxury Deluxe room especially pool side 3rd or 4th floor

We did not stay at Resort Rio but were regulars at their excellent 24hr cafe. We were made to feel like honoured guests and the service we received from Armondo, Steven and Joel - indeed every member of the bar staff was very special. This is not a stuffy hotel and we were greeted warmly by all members of the hotel staff. And - finally do try their excellent coffee - its the best in Goa!
We will be back next year.
