We were at Rio Guest House for a week and we definitely loved the place. The location was perfect for us (3 minutes walk to Dover beach public entrance and 5 to main part of StLawrence Gap). For what we paid (about 40 US a night for both of us) we had our room cleaned everyday, sharded access to kitchen with all facilities and to a nice balcony to have our meals. Guests there were really nice and respectfull, the balcony closes at 10 so no party in the house at all. People were also kind in cleaning the kitchen carefully after cooking and by being "almost" quiet when coming home late. we had the opportunity to meet australian, germans, british, italian, american... But if you are not the "social" type, it's ok too, you can do your own buisness and people respect your privacy. People were in between 20 and 50 years old, mostly in the late 20's early 30's. but it's only a week.
Our room had two comfortable beds, a small desk with mirror, and private bathroom with big shower and hot water almost all the time we needed it (remember they heat it on te roof with sun pannels). There were a safety box too. It was very clean, never saw a bug or anything in the entire week. there are mosquito nets on the windows, a ceiling fan, one other fan on the wall and token AC (we never had to use it). Maybe the decoration of the house is the small small negative point. Like painting the walls, hiding the holes... But really, who cares about that. You'll see in the pictures, it's all ok. Just making the remark cause there is always room for improvement.
The people who take care of the place are always there whenever you need something (use of the internet access or international calls for reasonable price, banks beer for sale if you miss some, etc.). You can rent sports gears, or ask them to boof tours or activities for you.
Thanks to all Rio people, Natasha, Denis and his wife (who I can't unfortunaley remember the name). You made our stay comfortable, safe and fun.
See you soon!
