“nice resort but for me 4.5 stars.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

very nice resort with some very friendly and helpfull people.ive had an appartment with a large balcony and separate bedroom with a realy good bed. good working airco.and bigscreen tv.also tv in living area. the food from the roomservice was good but somethimes not enough for the price you pay. also they should pay a little more attention on the minibar.the dates of some products and make sure when the custumor uses something they put some new back.because youre not allowed to bring anything from oudside. also the internet should be a little beter sinds you pay 1000inr for 24hours. its a loth of money for internet these days.i have no problem with paying but it has to work properly then i believe.they only give you about 200 kbs maximum. it should be for free.it should be at least 0.5 MB/sec.sometimes when i entered the hotel i had the feeling to many employees ware bussy with doing nothing while one guy was doing everything. my advice:keep working hard for not losing the 5stars....

My recent trip to Resort Rio was an excellent experience. This was a great choice to unwind and relax with family and friends. This was my first trip to Goa and my stay at Rio made it even more memorable. The resort was very well maintained, the staff was very courteous and caring. The reception folks showed all the types of accommodation available and ensured that we were provided with best possible rooms. The deluxe rooms were very well maintained and had fantastic views. The food and room service were good and the Pool with pool side bar was very addictive. The 24 Hr coffee shop was also very handy. Will look forward to visit again. Special thanks to Durgesh Yadav for the hospitality and assistance during my stay.

Room Tip: This was a great choice to unwind and relax with family and friends.

We had booked a deluxe room....it was around 500 Sq feet of space with a nice balcony and a huge bathroom. I got a pool facing room as promised by Durgesh at reservations and let me say that it was a great experience to stay at this resort.

New property and very well maintained, large and tastefully done rooms, clean and large pool, good food, nice different cuisine restaurants, good breakfast spread, a very friendly staff, Large LCD TV, pool side drinks,Table tennis, Spa etc....all in all we had an excellent time thanks to the friendly staff and excellent service standards. The pool side staff was also very helpful, in fact i learned floating with a bit of encouragement from one of the staff.

In terms of proximity to Beach, its not very far from Baga beach (though not walking distance) you have 2 wheeler available outside the hotel which you can hire for the day. They do a bit of bargaining but one should be able to close the deal for INR 200/250 for a 2 wheeler.

DURGESH thanks once again for helping u have a splendid time at the resort.

The few small things which i can think for improvement are:
1. TV was not facing the bed and was bolted to the corner wall thus making viewing difficult from the bed. There should be a L bracket to make the TV move sideways.
2. I would have preferred more lighting in the Bathroom.
