We stayed there in first week of April 2017. Apartments are bit outdated, but clean, roomy and have everything you need for self catering. En-suite was also decent quality. At that time of the year apartments and restaurant downstairs were really quiet including night hours. Restaurant itself is a real gem thanks to great hosts, food and relaxed atmosphere. There's...

We arrived and there was no atmosphere what so ever, it was so quiet, no music quite depressing! we got the keys to our room and the smell of stale smoke was so bad. The room size was good but we had very uncomfortable twin double beds. For a self catering apartment we couldn't get the oven to work! The...

We had a lovely stay at the Rio, we will definitely be returning. The beds was comfortable, and clean, we had fresh towels and bed made and changed twice on our week stay. The reception staff was very helpful and gave us maps of the area to help us get about.

I booked the holiday roughly 4 weeks before the actual flights etc. I chose Rio Apartments because it was cheap and only 20 min walk away from the Marina. Missus and I had day tours booked on 3 days, so we didn't spend much time in the apartments itself. We used the apartments for the basic amenities. For what we...

On arrival there was nobody at reception as it was closed, we had to ring a number off our own phone to get somebody to bring our keys to us off (which cost a fortune). The rooms are pretty grotty, no plugs in the kitchen to plug the appliances in, the beds are so uncomfortable we haven't had a good...

We couldn't have asked for anything more, the apartments were clean, the beds very comfortable and the staff were so very helpful. The receptionist Maria, went out of her way to help us with so many aspects of our stay. The cleaning ladies kept us supplied with clean towels and changed our beds regularly. We had 10 nights of pure...
