I've been working for many years in the golfing sector and played many times Rio Real. For me it's always been one of my favorite courses in the Costa del Sol and I will continue to reccomend it! today the definition of the fairways was really impressive! Well done Rio Real you are doing an excellent job!

This is a lovely quiet hotel in beautiful surroundings and excellent staff. The Par room that we stayed in was very spacious and had a massive double bed. The bathroom has everything you need and the shower is nice and powerful. We never saw the cleaners but they obviously did a good job as the room was spotless everyday. All...

We stayed at the hotel for three days. It was low season with few guests. We liked the hotel and especially the hospitality but the hotel has obviously peaked and parts of the hotel needs renovation. We saw for example broken tiles in the bathroom and walls that needed repainting. The breakfast was good but the bread was outdated( dry)....

I visit this complex annually . Staff are brilliant. Breakfast has improved greatly. Golf course although always fully booked, doesn't feel too busy. The course is a good test without being ridiculous. I have walked and used a buggy both options are fine.

We stayed in several hotels during our trip and this was my favourite, small enough to feel intimate, this hotel is designed beautifully.
