Rio Real was a fantastic choice for a quick golf getaway in the Costa del Sol region. I chose Rio Real because this quick trip (I booked the 3 nights with golf booking) was a solo trip with golf, and a little touring, being the focus. The Rio Real is smack dab in the middle of the golf course and you've got fewer than 50-100 steps before you're in the Pro Shop. Drew and the team were very welcoming and accomodating for my entire stay, and I think for any group looking to have it all on one property this is an excellent choice. First, the golf course - as it's off-season the course did have a couple of holes being worked on (closest to the sea), and because it's off-season there were a few holes where the fringes were quick bare. While that was unfortunate the entire golf experience was still fantastic (it's -20 back home after all). Overall the course was in fine shape. There are multiple tee boxes for any level and the bunkers and greens were maintained and kept up by staff even though the number of players was low during my stay. It was easy to pick tee times and the Pro Shop staff was very helpful and very flexible. I rented clubs during my short visit - they were very solid (Ping Woods and Callaway irons) and I was quite pleased (they even set me up with a left-handed putter - Canadian that I am). The Pro Shop is fully outfitted for any needs. They had nice pricing and very high-quality merchandise. Second - hotel. My room was tremendous. It was very comfortable and spacious (King Bed/Small Sofa/writing desk/etc.) and the extras made it a fantastic spot to rest up. With warmer temperatures they do have an outdoor pool and they are adding to a fitness centre in the coming months. I didnt' book any spa style treatments but you can book massages in advance (or upon arrival). Restaurant - I just love Spain! The wine and food is excellent and the pricing is so reasonable. A nice buffet-style breakfast is available and the restaurant staff were happy to create omlets to your preference with no issue. All in all a great Hotel/Restaurant setup. While the temperatures might have kept some locals away for anyone from a colder spot (Canada for example) the temperatures were completely fine for golf in January. I would definitely return and stay there again. It's a short hop into Marbella. The Casino is fun and there are plenty of fantastic restaurants for any price point. If you are looking for a great burger check out CHEAT - just a short walk from the Casino.

The hotel, golfing experience, restaurant could not have been better..very attentive staff, good food and a brilliant golf course...HOWEVER, after 3 days in the hotel room, each morning I had been badly bitten, I thought at first it was mosquitoes.... BUT, I was mainly bitten on my feet, legs and body. Finally, when I returned home, I had a multitude of really bad bumps and bites. I wrote an email to the hotel....no reply... I think I was bitten by bed bugs!!!!!

Dear 809barriep, We thank you for taking the time to comment about your trip and stay at Río Real Golf & Hotel. We are saddened to read your opinion however we did not receive your email about this matter. Since we did not receive the email, no further action was taken to take the room out of order for inspection by a third party specialised in this area. If it had been the case that you mention, it would not be an isolated incident, as there would be many more cases and more comments about this but yours is the first and only mention of this. Mosquitoes can be bad during the hot season and especially due to our greenery, the mosquitoes are prevalent. On another note, we are pleased to read that the hotel, golf and restaurant experience was good. Sincere regards, Rio Real Golf & Hotel

We enjoyed our stay very much, very nice rooms with high end finishing, very spacious junior suite. Good atmosphere but don’t expect a trendy hotel. Service is good in line with 4 star hotel. Restaurant is in the golf club house, both diner and breakfast we like very much.

Perfect location for relaxing days in a quite environment on a superb golf course. Small but nice pool area. Because of closeness to Marbella, the missing dinner capabilities in the restaurant is no problem and doesn't impact the stay.

If your looking for a resort type course but it still within a 5min drive into town, then this is your place! Everything from the quality of the hotel, bar, restaurant, pro shop and obviously the course was awesome. The service from all the staff is second to none from the minute you arrive. I’ll be definitely going going back. Even my wife, who has only been playing for 18months really enjoyed.

Myself and my wife stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February and had a fantastic time. The rooms were very big (we had a par) and all overlook the 11th hole. Very thoroughly cleaned each day. The golf course was fantastic. We both have handicaps of 20 and 22, and found it to be challenging but achievable. Loads of entertaining holes but the bunkers are very deep and the holes are well protected by them. David the golf pro was particularly friendly, and really encouraging. All the staff were lovely! We did have some other guests who were playing very aggressively behind us on the Saturday, despite us being right behind the group in front. If you’re looking for a relaxing round I would say don’t play Saturday pre 1. That was our mistake, and the other 2 rounds we played on Friday and Sunday were much more enjoyable and all the other guests much more relaxed! All in all a great trip, we will be back!

We had learned that the management had done some serious changes over the last year to improve the quality of the restaurant, both in the kitchen as well as services, and we decided to give it a new try for Valentine. It was a pleasure to note that the rumor was correct, the staff provided excellent service throughout the evening and the food was delicious! The meat was cooked to perfection and we had a great evening with our friends. We have also tried the daily menu several times, and again thrilled to say the food is now to the standard one would expect at such a beautiful place. This uplift is highly appreciated and I hope this change will last forever!
