You get what you pay for they say and this complex fits in, room 007 was really poor, paint crumbling off the walls and ceilings, kitchen units had missing fronts, inadequate power points, very dark a death trap waiting to happen. One of the oldest televisions I have seen, now the best bit. The restaurant at Rio is run by the most miserable, rude, uncompromising owners I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. when you are on holiday you want an enjoyable experience. When we arrived at the hotel, we checked in our room in much need of a drink after our journey, we headed to the bar restaurant ordered our drinks, but to be TOLD to move tables if you are not eating, very abruptly I might add!! kind of set the tone for the week. Luis had no people skills what so ever. It didn't seem to matter to him whether you Spent 20 euros or 65 euros of a lunch time or evening.
All seemed to be to much of an effort for the restaurant owner, not that anyone staying at the Rio apartments had much choice to but to spend their money with them, as it was an half hour walk to the marina .They even closed on Mondays rather than bring in staff to provide a service to all the residents ,Apart from the hot stone steak the range of food was mediocre and every meal came with chips, we ask for boiled spuds or mash on the last night, we ended up with powdered smash, not a bad effort after 6 hours notice. He is Portugal,s Basil Fawlty , stay well clear.
