“Perfect place to relax”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Excellent ambience and a perfect place to relax. Really, really good coffees especially the espressos and capuccinos made by their well trained baristas Armando, Uttam and Joel. Italian style or as Armando would say "Gangam style" ! Perfect place to read a book or listen to soft music. And excellent atmosphere in the evenings for a drink or two.

“No atmosphere”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Stayed in the hotel and went to the cafe often but never ate or drank there as it was always empty with no atmosphere at all. Was used as a corridor from main hotel reception to the pool area by most guests

Dear Valued Reviewer,

Greetings from Rio Cafe Bar at Resort Rio !!

First of all we would like to thank you for having taken time out to write this review following your visit to Rio Cafe Bar.

We agree to your point that some of our guests who want to go to our pool do make use of the cafe due to it's location and we refrain from asking them to use the way through the stairs adjacent to our kids club and Spa so as not to inconvenience them to go back all the way Back.

However the fact that you never dined at the Cafe because you never saw any one there is a bit difficult for us to believe as our sales figures tells us otherwise.

We would also like to bring to your kind notice that we have renovated the entire place and has a new and interesting upmarket menu in place for patrons like you and we hope that you will definitely give us a chance to serve you at the Rio Cafe Bar.

Warm Regards

“Nice place to hang around”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Cheap place and almost empty all the time, polite staff, although not very friendly, as believe they wanna give u ur space and not get into it unless u ask for it. Needs more sitting space though as it can be a rocking palce if they handle it nicely.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Rio Cafe Bar at Resort Rio !

Thank you for taking time out to post your feedback following your visit to our Rio Cafe Bar.

We are glad to note the positive things from your review like the polite service associates and that it has a potential to rock. However we have noted your suggestions and feedback on the price and we have therefore renovated the entire place and put in place a new up market menu and also increased the seating capacity. You would definitely agree with us that we advise our staff to refrain from being over friendly so that our guests can have their own time between themselves and in doing so give our guests some moments of privacy.

We are sure that you should re visit our all new Rio Cafe Bar now to see how new and different it looks than before and that you would surely have the time of your life with us at our cafe here.

Looking forward to having you soon at Rio Cafe Bar.

Kind Regards
