I would like to Thank Tripadvisor foremost for creating a platform to know places better, as this never disappointed me. Staying at Resort Rio is really for the life of time. Though my check in time was at 2PM, I had to arrive Goa at 7.30AM due to my flight schedule. Still I got a car to pick me up at airport ontime and I was given the room by 9AM. I would like to Thank Haynes Gomes for all the help that she extended to make our stay memorable. The food was really great at Jalsa. I thank Sachin and his team for the great hospitality and food. He really made us feel special :-) I also want to Thank Gurunath, Pradeep and Bhavana for cleaning and decorating our room on our wedding anniversary day.
To summarize, the stay, value for money, food, greeting, service, cleanliness everything is great! It’s a true 5 star experience and would like to visit this place again with my friends and family.

The resort is very nice. The pool and front desk area shines with all the marble flooring. Really looks luxorious. I had kind of a bad experience with the GOA airport shut down, not being able to eat breakfast the next morning because of a wedding and other minor mishapps but Dangesh took very good care of me. Dangesh showed that the hotel has a great customer service. He upgraded my room and made me feel comforted. Other employees such as Nirmal Mahur made the resort really fun. He has a lot of activites you can do, espicially a ball they put you inside in the pool to make it like you are walking on water. Nirmal showed great friendship and hospitality.

I have stayed for 5 Nights at Resort Rio. The Hotel is conveniently located close to Baga Beach & is apt for stay in Goa. The Hotel staff is courteous & very supportive. A special mention for the Housekeeping team, which not only maintained but surprised us with their pleasant service. All in all a very comfortable stay & highly recommended.MANISH BHAÑUSHALI
