    My family and I decided to go on a holiday to Goa and on the suggestion of a few friends, we booked into Resort Rio. We had heard a lot of good comments about this hotel so we stayed there. It was a 3-nights trip that was simply fabulous!

    Firstly the deluxe rooms were absolutely spacious and the kids had enough and more space to run around in. The hotel had an elegant, no-fuss deco which really appealed to me. We tried their Mamma Mia restaurant a few times, for a different taste and it didn’t let us down one bit! The chefs there are really good. A must try for everyone with Italian taste buds! The kids enjoyed their time at the pool and were completely fascinated with the elephants spouting water.
    The staff at the hotel were cordial and we didn’t have any problem with them. The beach is also pretty close and one-way transportation was usually available…..The only thing that we regret is that we were unable to experience the spa treatments due to lack of time. But we will surely be back for that sometime soon!

    We went goa for a few nights and stayed in room 207.
    On arrival we were greeted with a cold drink and had our heavy cases taken of us..
    When we were shown to the room we were like wow what a plush room, it was beautiful. If I was to be fussy one of the tables has not been cleaned and was sticky. The light fitting was not fixed on the wall properly and the power shower fluded the shower as the drainage was slow other that that every thing was 5*. we had dinner in one of the many restaurants it was excellent as was the entertainment with all the staff joining in with singing and dancing.
    If maintained well this hotel will be a winner in the future

    Truly a hidden gem, hardly 2 kms away from Baga & Calangute Beach. Excellent Ambience, and service beyond imagination. The rooms are a dream and best suited for a couple or family of 3. For larger families, they have the apartments & villas with Living rooms & kitchenettes.
    The staff go out of their way to fulfill every wish or demand. Activities throughout the day for children & adults. Live music with karaoke in the restaurant and an excellent spread of food every day. If you don't like the buffet, they will cook up a special dish of your liking at no extra charge.
    Enjoy the drinks at the pool bar, indoor sports and a wonderful spa experience.
    The only thing that disappointed us was that they shut the pool at 7 in the evening!
    But, overall, a great holiday destination!

    Room Tip: Ask for a room/ villa with a pool view

    Dear Mr. Gupta,

    First of all I would like to thank you for getting back to us with your observations. We certainly do value them a lot.

    We are definitely glad that you think of our resort as a “truly hidden gem” with excellent service and facilities. We deduce from your review that you definitely had a remarkable time during your stay here. Undoubtedly, we do provide unlimited fun, entertainment and much more.
    At the same time, we follow certain rules and regulations at the poolside and this includes ending of the swim session at 7pm. We are very grateful to you for co-operating with these rules.

    We thank you once again for your review and we invite you to visit this “great holiday destination” more often.

    Regards,
    Terence Nunes
    General Manager

    making my family happy is all i want to do. i saw the comments and reviews on this site and also was browsing on the site of Resort Rio... from what i saw.. i fell in love with the pictures on the site but the reviews was leting me down.. i wanted to see for myself and a family outing to Goa at resort rio was my plan. the journey to the hotel... was waiting to c the marvelous place.... the road towards the hotel was an adventure... we had to pull back because of a pickup coming the opposite site since the road was narrow, that's what i want to say all good things come the hard way. arriving to the resort, my family was over whelmed to see the the massive structure, it seemed like a palace, my check in was done by a gentleman named saby ( i hope i got that name right) he was a professional his accent phewwwww....... the rooms no words to describe... i told my wife i wish i could go to work from here everyday. the nights went fast and so the days.... guess i was having the time of my life with my family, i was entitled of all meals, i remember sachin and ryan served us most of the times and service no issues.. food was good.. i tried the mamamia pizza and guess what i got a 20% discount the pizza was worth more.. thanks for taking me to Italy when m in goa.. will come back for the pizza. the onli issue i had was the currents flactuation but the it wasnt for more then 10 to 15 sec... but the AC had to restart! the pool so wide, a sit up bar... bartender Jose and deston, i just asked how u going to get me drunk? and they kept making me drinks somethings out of their menu but really consumable... the coffee shop must have more then two guys.... coz we take time to order and others wer geting left out. if i had to read the bad reviews and dint wwant to come here i would have missed it all... the staff who were ready to help the massive rooms with lovely bath area.. i met Mr. Benny sales and marketing mgr he was such a down to earth man and neville he treated us like we wer family... i would say it was like home away from home... resort rio i will be back for more. guys i would suggest " go to this resort" you will not like it but love it

    best wishes
