This was my second visit to Goa and again it was Resort Rio. They were fabulous with their service again specially Reception area (Durgesh, Monica, Manoj and Bhavana). the resort was over booked and full but still the service was exclusive. The Deluxe rooms are gorgeous and the ambience is comfortable. Pool with Bar service adds to the fun which Goa is famous for. Had a great time. I have recommended it to 8 couples and they too have had a similar experience. Will surely recommend many more. Thanks

Visited Resort Rio again with my family.....must say that they havent changed a bit.... the service was warm and very efficient....be it the front desk, the Pickled Mango restaurant, the swimming pool bar or the room service. They have really kept up to being one of the best resorts in Goa... special thanks to Mr Durgesh for your special care during our trip. Look forward to visiting again!!

One of the local taxi driver by the name of Mark recommended me this resort. The property is very beautiful with the lovely Sean of the arpora fields and away from the hassle and Burrell of the city. The pool is huge and around it are the Sun beds and restaurant. The garden area is quite big which makes you feel one with nature. The rooms are well maintained and the bathrooms are well spacious and furnished with the latest technology. The food and service is excellent. The staff are very helpful. If any plans in goa do contact Mark the taxi driver for any arrangement and quarries. He provides transport and other amenities at a reasonable rate (9860287170). We will definitely make a trip back here. Thanks to all the staff.

Resort Rio,
It was my 4th time at this resort, with 1st time being in May 2012. And I must say, things have only improved.
The ambiance and the services of the hotel are so up to the mark that we don't feel like staying at any other property in Goa.

The best assets of the Resort:
1. Size, Decor and feel of the rooms which no other hotel in North Goa had.
2. The amazing big pool with the pool bar and gr8 music all the time.
3. 4 Different restaurants with amazing food quality and flavours.
4. Durgesh - The, Customer Relations Manager. This guy truly justifies his title. Always keen to help with a smile.
5. Each and every staff member who would always be pleasing and smiling.
6. Location - Not on the beach, yet in a location close to the beach and the main areas.
7. Zaara - The in house spa which is superb.
8. Luxury Villas - If you are travelling with a group, you won't find anything better.

So, what else do you want when on holiday.

This hotel won't be the cheapest one on your list of hotels, however each and every penny would be worth spending.

There's no flaw that I can think of.

All the best Resort Rio, see you again.
