We stayed at Resort Rio for 3 nights with our kid in the luxury deluxe room. The hotel location is among the best in Goa, near Baga beach. they also have a shuttle service to baga in case one is without a vehicle. Good Food, spacious , large rooms, spectacular view from the rooms ( suggest rooms on 4th floor with pool view), amazing experience in the pool, with regular Jacuzzi, lavish Pool bar and a zorbing activity for kids. This Diwali special activities were planned for kids friendship band making,pottery, art & craft activities. in the evening there was dandiya and tambola games arranged for guests.Staff is extremely courteous, prompt and helpful. Small things like Diwali sweets distributed to each room made it even more special. Food is slightly expensive in room dining, the cost range between INR 600-650 per regular main course dish. suggest nearby local joints like "u n me" for reasonably good food.
Overall our diwali was made special in every possible way.
Its a no brainer.

I stayed at this Resort with my family, it was a memorable experience. We stayed in the Main Wing in a Deluxe Twin Room with a Sofa Cum Bed(for kids), the Bed Room & Bathroom were both spacious(disappointing shower area - as no shower curtain due to which the bathroom would get wet & sink - as design was bad if you are not careful you would get wet with the force of the tap pressure), the breakfast spread was good & quality of food was also good/fresh, Hospitality of all the staff-Front Desk, House Keeping & Restaurants warm & courteous.

Location was also good(3-7kms) from all the popular beaches in North Goa.

I wasn't sure about the Resort as didn't know anyone in person who had stayed there, but Thanks to TRIPADVISOR after reading the review booked it & enjoyed my Holiday.

Well where do i start. We had a retreat of 175 people at this Resort in 2nd week of Oct 2013. I was quiet concerned how the Resort would manage such a Big Group.
But let me tell you, from the Front Office, to the House Keeping to the Banquet Facilites, to the Restaurants, The Team is Just Awesome. The kind of Experience we got was of a 7 Start Facility, cos, what makes ur Experience Excellent is the Service.
I Must say the Hotel Team, strives to give the Very Best Experience by going out of their way to provide you, an awesome Experience.
I would like to personally thank Mr. Priscilo, Mr. Agnelo, Mr. Patrick, Mr, Bosco for their great Service, their Great teams!
The property allows u to Enjoy everything of North Goa, within accessible distance and also keeps u away from the really crowded Goa. After staying several times, in Cidade, Taj Village, Taj Exotica, i must say it was a True Value for Money 1 week stay at this beautiful Property!!!!

We reached Goa and were picked up at the airport but looking at the vehicle for pick-up well just left us a bit worried about the resort as it was a tired looking Wagon R but that is the only thing that left us with a worry after that it was a smooth ride as the resort was simply great ... the staff was excellent and the best part was the detail to cleanliness in every place.... we had a terrace view room and had booked in the American plan which included the meals up to 1500 per person per day..... and well we thought that would be enough but one look at there menu we realized it would not be as the prices are very high ... but at the end of the stay we did not have to pay anything extra for the meals... the cost of liquor is also very high especially any decent ones and the ones included in the package were very less the so called house brands .. but during 7 to 9 an upgrade to other liquor is 50 % less and that was good ... The quality of food was excellent but we did not try the Jalsa restaurant as it had a fixed menu and although being vegetarians we rarely liked the menu on offer ... but Pickled Mango was more than good with the food and the in room dinning was very prompt and good ...
We had gone to Goa to actually do our diving and stayed in the hotel for 7 days ... and had done the booking well in advance ... the hotel has a very good ambience and is very nice and quite they have an amazing pool and one thing is that they do lack some colour as the place has some activities like karaoke night etc but not much ...
This is a resort which is best for people who like to relax and take it a bit easy. For people who want to have some music and some lively fun .. sorry this is not the place as the location of this resort is close to beach but not very close also .... it is located well away from the main road and that has its pros and cons .....
But for both me and my wife it was a time of our lives .... and thanks to all the staff at the resort rio for making it that way ....

Room Tip: The rooms with the Terrance view are great if you want a garden in front of your room otherwise try...
