We chose to stay in Rio for this trip because of the favorable reviews in TA and the room rates were ~2/3 the cost of staying in the more popular casino hotels, inclusive of breakfast.
Booking was thru their website, prices quoted in HKD. There is no shuttle service to/from the ferry but it is only about ten minutes walk from the ferry if you are familiar with the area, otherwise it can take up to 20 mins. If you are carrying big luggage, it might be more convenient to get a taxi, it won't cost that much.
The hotel is in a good location, being walking distance to the big name casinos in the area and even Senado Square, and has a few nearby bus stops.
Staff were friendly and spoke very good English. We checked in at 9am and the room was available by 11am!
We stayed in a very spacious corner deluxe double room with a view of the park and Orient Arch, the bathroom was also huge with separate shower and bath tub. The safe was of ample size and could accommodate a laptop, ipad, compact camera, DSLR and extra lens (even telefoto). For us the bed was firm (not hard as others found) which was fine; it was not luxurious but we slept well. A tall person may find the bed a little short. Bar items were limited but reasonably priced, eg., canned soda at MOP20. Coffee and tea making facilities were provided. Door had a smart sensor lock. The only setback was the limited tv channel list (English movie channels would've been nice) - upon retiring after a full day of exploring Macau, we would've preferred to watch something more entertaining than C-span.
The breakfast buffet was disappointing for the room rate, which the hotel was charging HKD85, also not worth it. The food selections were geared towards Asian taste but even the dim sum was of poor quality. Options are limited for vegans. The coffee was good though!
Rio hotel provides a very good 3 star hotel room with a few 4 star features. Considering the bed quality, room entertainment and breakfast buffet, it seems rather pricey but this is Macau, it might be acceptable for medium range accommodations.
