We have had a great 5 days at Rio apartments arriving Moday 4th Oct and returnin on Fri 8th Oct, there were 3 of us travelling there so we booked a one bedroomed apartment and a studio apartment too as my mum had previously been there last year! On arrival reception was shut for 1 hour due to the receptionist being called way to another Garvetur apartment block. When she returned she was quick to process us with our keys and and even gave us a room upgrade as our room was not yet cleaned and ready.
The studio apartments have had new (comfy) beds and decor and are currently awaiting new kitchens, whilst the one & two bedroomed apartments have had brand new kitchens and are currently awaiting new beds and decor throughout.
The outside of the building has also been repainted a bright welcoming (orange/yellow) colour and had a new sign and lighting put outside the entrance. (any pictures that are already posted on here will now most probably be outdated due to the refurbishment)
Beds in the one and two bedroomed apartments are very hard and quite uncomfortable . . . however, no matter where we have stayed in Vilamoura over the last 10 years all the beds have been the same, even when we stayed in a 5* hotel near to the marina.
Pool was cleaned every morning, and although very cold it was extremely clean. There are only about 30 beds round the pool (some with blue matresses), so if you are planning to sunbathe by the pool all day it is advisable to get down to the pool quite early, with the excpetion of a Wenesday when the pool will most likey be very quiet due to most people going to the local market in Quarteira.
Overall a brilliant 5 day gettaway, which will be made even better when all rooms are completely refurbished. Will definately be returning early next year!
