ONLY FRESH AIR SOURCE inside rooms is the AC. All windows are tightly sealed with glass. But then, not all ACs are working, I had to change my room. Guests with any kind of breathing problem or asthma or heart patients - beware! You may feel suffocation. EVEN TO BREATHE FRESH AIR - GO TO TERRACE OR GET OUTSIDE OF HOTEL, yes, the corridors are tightly glass sealed. Now, about my personal experience. My first step into my room revealed that the AC isn't cooling and there's foul odor due to reasons stated above. They changed the room; the AC worked for the first two days, then the last two days were horrible. AC stopped working, they didn't repair it & didn't change my room. I tried my best to seek answers for how am I supposed to breathe in a non-AC room whose windows don't open. Should I sleep with the room door open at night? They were silent. Staff were so shameless that they didn't hesitate to ask for tips during checkout. Forget about compensating for the problem which they couldn't solve. I paid for AC rooms for four nights, but actually lived two nights in non-AC suffocating room! So friends, all that glitters isn't gold (location factor, RK Beach etc.). If you're lucky, then good, otherwise be prepared for a hell-like experience. Don't argue, they're terribly rude and highly insensitive people. And also in drunken state at night. Oh! There's no in-house kitchen. You have to dine outside or take help of Swiggy or Zomato. SMOKERS STAY AWAY from here, NO SMOKING inside rooms or corridors. Go to terrace or get yourself out of the hotel - to smoke. (No smoking in public places, restricted in public, 5 years ago. People from other states, please note this point.)

Stayed at the front side rooms. Nice location on the seafront. Though the room and the bath could be a bit larger, the bed was large. View from the rooms were splendid. Basement car parking facility available for the boarders, if they arrive by car. Nice complementary breakfast. They also encourage you to visit their rooftop area, where you are welcome to sit and enjoy the breeze and the view of the sea. I shall recommend this hotel.

We booked the hotel after going through the reviews as we wanted a beach side hotel from where we can enjoy the sea and the sunrise. As we planned so we acted. The rio beach hotel gives you a beautiful clear view of the RK beach . You can enjoy the sunrise from your bed sipping on your cup of morning coffee. What else do you need?? The guys in the reception were quite helpful in most of the times. They don’t have an in-house restaurant, but will provide you the cutlery and dish for free if you order your food from zomato. Few things that needed improvement- 1. No WiFi network from your room (we stayed in 314). 2. The room key never worked. So every time we moved into the hotel, we have to ask for the master key. 3. The parking is a headache. They have dedicated parking lot in the basement, but the front of it is always crowded with number of parked cars. We checked in in the late evening of Sunday and had to keep our car in the open common space till late night when the way to the basement parking was cleared. So, this is a real nuisance and the guards are least helpful. 4. Language is a real issue !! Apart from the front desk guys the staff don’t speak Hindi or English... so you need to be an expert in sign language 😂 5. The glass window doesn’t open nor there is any balcony, which would have been great to enjoy the sea more.

The hotel is located opp the RK beach beach and the rooms are neat and clean. There are close by hotels available next to the hotel, in case you want to have breakfast or lunch. The hotel has no inhouse restaurant, hence no cimplimentary breakfast is provided. Water bottles are provided as complimentary

The only great thing about the hotel is the Elite room as its beach facing on the RK beach. The hotel is just next to Matsya darshini. The room was big and clean, bed was clean. The bathroom was clean. Tv and AC were working fine. I stayed in their premier room as well and you can see the sea partially from the side window, this room was also clean and good. They offer room service as in, food will come from hotel Punjabi grill and i had ordered dinner once it was ok. Breakfast was served on terrace and it was also outsourced. breakfast was tasty but very few items. If you dont go early, few items like medu wadas, fruits and juices would get over, the tables would not be cleared and you will have to look out where to sit! They need to manage well and give good service. Staff was polite, its not their mistake, only one guy to manage breakfast for so many guests. Many guests were complaining during breakfast time and called the manager. Laundry would take 2 days, the receptionist told. Now a big shout out to this guy called Kranthi Kiran who took my booking! First i was offered 2 nights Elite room and 2 nights Premier and a quote was sent on sms. Then i called again and i asked for 5th half day and again a quote was given to me verbally. I discussed at home and came back with the requirement of 2 nights Elite room and 2 nights Premier room ,a quote was given to me verbally and this guy asked me to make 50% advance payment which i did. During Check out the receptionist charged more so i asked this was not agreed, she asked to speak to Kranthi. I called him and he started shouting and yelling and said show me where i have given this quote to you. I checked my data and told hime the agreed rates. I paid the remaining 50% only and hence lot of time was wasted. i would suggest whatever booking u are doing and agreeing with these guys take it in a sms or email so they dont charge more during check out. I have stayed in many hotels in various places but i have not seen a guy speaking rudely to a guest on phone like this guy Kranthi. They need to improve their customer service/ experience. I would suggest that let Rio beach be the last option in Vizag, if you are not getting any beach facing hotel then go for it !

The hotel is right on front of RK beach. The promenade is worth watching and the place is hustling and bustling from 6 am till 11 pm at night. Our room was on 4th floor and beach facing. The rooms were spacious and stay was overall comfortable. The property does not have a restaurant though, but a small pantry to serve breakfast. The view from the terrace at the top is worth. We were here for 2 nights and Overall, value for money.
