As you might have noticed am back from wonderful GOA where I really had the time of my life!!!! You wanted massages???? Just the choice of which one was a problem!!!!! Ayurvedic????? Thai?????? Stress Relief?????? You wanted a facial treatment? Same problem!!!!!!!! You wanted a big tub filled with flowers and a lovely drink next to you???????? Done!!!!! Hair, manicure, pedicure?????? Done!!!!!!!! Workout???? Go to the fitness center!!!!!The food was divine... Espec.. an enormous steak, snapper and kingfish the outstanding chef cooked!!!!!!! Even the food sent to the room was food!!!!! Lovely veggies, fruit, rice... all organic...What more could you want?????? Also the staff of housekeeping were looking after me hand and foot and the staff at the reception... Especially one little angel there...And not forgetting the rest.. staff in the main rest.pickled mango, like MAC, JOEL, CLAYTON who made sure I was served at my special table in the sun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And at evening time, f.i. when there was the barbecue!!! Food was delicious in the Italian rest.MAMMA MIA and at the veg. rest. where I tasted some delic. Indian cuisine... Needless to say it was an award winning rest. My special thanks go to my favourite chef PRUDENCIO and last but not least to MR. BENNY THE MANAGER, who made my stay there really THE TIME OF MY LIFE... THANK YOU ALL... And then there is the luxurious seting of the place on the banks of the Baga river, in the nature... Miss the birds already... THANK YOU AND LOVE YOU ALL...

We went there last in June 2012. We were two couples with one kid each. The other couple were celebrating their anniversary on one of the days during our stay, the staff noticed it and made sure they had an amazing "Honeymoon Experience" complete with a nicely decorated bed and bathtub, complimentary cake and wine and fruits. This was "without us asking for it", completely suo motu and that speaks a lot about the hospitality at the resort.

The food at the Pickled Mango was top notch and the staff personally makes sure the guests have best of the experiences.

The swimming pools are nice and clean, and overall the facility is a real treat to stay at. A definite repeat on my calendar this year.

Room Tip: Pretty much all the rooms are nice, so no specific preferences.

We spent a week at the Rio for a family wedding. The hotel is well equipped, and the staff are very friendly. Food was excellent, with different restaurants to choose from, although some drinks were a bit expensive. We upgraded to a deluxe room, which was well worth the extra. We'd certainly go back!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are good value

We found this hotel in exquisite surroundings and very peaceful location'
Its a great hotel to relax in with the nearby Baga Beach. The Gardens are well maintained with the lovely pool and cafe alongside it. One can enjoy the tranquil surroundings and have a leasure time at the Resort.
I was disappointed with the cappucino at the Cafe. That needs upgrading.
also there should be more information available for guest about Goa at the Reception Desk..

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback and for sharing your views with us.

I have made a note of your comment regarding the cappuccino served at the Rio Cafe Bar and have spoken to the concerned department as to why there was a lapse in the delightful experience we always pride ourselves upon.

With regards to your suggestion on more information available at the reception desk - we do have a travel desk that provides all information to guests.

Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you give us another opportunity to serve you one again.

Still here another 10 days and although unusual to comment during stay had to say a massive thank you for the service we have received whilst being here from all the staff but especially to Brosco the restaurant manger tonite who could see that we were a little distraught as they had changed from the Buffett menu to a written menu and we were having difficulty deciphering the menu.... But Mr Broso came over and went into great detail explaining the menu in full but also offered us many other types of food and after listening to our likes put together off the menu a 3 course meal and the superb team of waiters and himself delivered a special Meal and made us feel 5 star and gave us an experience to remember ....

Had stayed for 4 nights at resort rio. Rooms are big and give you a sense of privacy as they are well apart from each other. swimming pool is amazing, so it the coffee shop. only problem is that it is a bit far from beach. however, since i took a bike, i found no issues. staff is courteous and attentive. will recommend this if you want to be in the city most of the time as there are no activities apart from swimming pool. overall a good 4 star property
