Need to improve connectivity
The rooms and hotel is amazing but the internet connectivity is bad. No connectivity in hotel rooms and in common areas need to login multiple times. The hotel is not very close to the beach. Hotel provides shuttle service to beach 4 times a day. Spa services were okay, my mom took the back neck and scalp massage package, but they don't do the scalp massage. Over all the stay was good except for a few glitches.

5 Star Hotel Not worth it!!!!
I would not recommend this Hotel, I was move 2 time from my room, 1 they gave me the wrong room, second the room had a very bad smell. So I lost most of my afternoon moving from room to room. There's no WI-FI in the rooms been a 5 star hotel u will think they would have a WI-FI everywhere, the lobby is full of people trying to get on the WI-FI, and they give u this little papers with the WI-FI codes, but they expired every couple hours, that's crazy, so if u need to use the Web u would have to used plenty of those little papers they provided, so disappointed in this Hotel, not what it seems from pictures and everything is way to expensive, I would not recommend anyone to this Hotel ever.

Worth staying at.
Decided to stay here based on the other reviews and I was happy with the decision. We stayed there for 3 nights last week. We arrived fairly late at night due to a delayed connecting flight and they had the room ready for us. Even though it was like 1 am, they brought us a welcome drink. That night I tried to take a shower and the water was body temperature, but the other 3 days, it got much hotter. We stayed in a Luxury Deluxe room 207. The bathroom was large, had a separate tub and a shower. The shower had a handheld unit and a overhead rain shower which was really nice. From our room/balcony, we could access the wifi connection, though from where the bed is situated, it was just intermittent from there. It was a little annoying to have to get the paper password/login info from the front desk as each login is only good for 100 minutes. The pool was nice and clean. The bar had quite a few drink, but I mainly just drank beer. Reasonable priced for a resort. Pizza's were good. Breakfast had a wide variety of food. Though it was pretty similar everyday. The hotel is situated at the end of a deadend street. We ended up renting a scooter to get around. Beach is about 5-10 minutes away. There are a few good restaurants not too far away as well that we tried. It's easy to get a taxi there as well. All in all I thought it was worth it and would stay there again.

Expensive to eat and drink
Drinks and food far too expensive for Goa. Internet poor unless you paid for it! For a 5 star resort this was unacceptable

Worth Staying Again!!
We planned for the Goa trip again after 4yrs and were confused which hotel to stay. Based on the previous experience we went again with Resort Rio and I must say they didn't disappoint at all. In fact I could recognize most of the staff which speaks a lot about the staff retention and happiness quotient among them. Being a returning customer we were upgraded to bigger room with awesome view as a complementary (thanks Durgesh for the gesture), We really appreciate this gesture. When we thought they were done they surprised us with the welcome cake in the room, talking about hospitality and the care they took. The hotel staff called us everyday to ensure that we were taken care of nicely. Overall I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Ideal if travelling with kids (we had two small ones to mend). Very courteous staff, excellent food and lavish as well as sumptuous breakfast spread. The House keeping staff were very prompt and ensured that they cleaned the mess which our kids enjoyed a lot making. Location wise too this hotel is ideal being close to Baga beach, Tito's lane (most happening place in Goa with all the clubs around) and Calungute beach as well as market. The property is worth staying with excellent swimming pools and lots of in-house amenities. One of the best place to stay near Baga beach and the most happening place in Goa!!
