    I would like to start with I had a great time visiting Rio dr jan all the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Gabriel We really enjoyed the rides and all the other amenities but I was a little disappointed as soon as I entered the room I found everything very cool during the day I went to shower, hair on the shower floor, the most disappointing dirty sheet !!! was not changed from the last guest. The breakfast was good but my husband and I found dirty glasses of lipstick.the location is very good. was near everywhere we wanted to go. The great thing about this hotel is the location and the front desk staff gabriel.

    Food was sub-par. We ordered dinner and the staff took too long and had to return twice to bring things they forgot. The chicken was tasteless and everything came cold.
