Resort Rio Rocks! My favourite hotel in the world

I would say Resort Rio is my favourite place on earth.A little piece of Heaven. And it's not just because of the beautiful architecture and design.not just because of its beautiful peaceful location.But because of the incredible people who work there. It's the service, the staff, the genuine care and warmth one experiences that sets this place apart from the other hotels and resorts. My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful resort and as I write this review sitting in the lounge at Mumbai Airport having left Goa this morning, I am ... missing the wonderful people of Resort Rio already ! We received genuine service- straight from the heart- from the moment we checked in and as we were seated in their coffee lounge with cold towels and a choice of welcome drinks. Durguesh at the front office dealt with our check in formalities with the minimum of fuss whilst we enjoyed a cappuccino and a duppio expertly prepared by Armando. I can tell you that the coffee is better than anywhere you will taste in India. We were then led to our villa which overlooked a creek with incredible views. The villa itself was beautifully furnished, extremely spacious and large enough to sleep around 6 people. That evening we ate by the poolside and what a sumptuous buffet they had laid on with soothing music being played by a small band. However, more than the food, it's the service from the ever smiling waiters that we will always remember- Saahil, Patrick, Rohit, Shankar, Silvanus, Bosco, Joel to name but a few of the ever smiling staff. Thank you all! Infact we tried all their other restaurants during our stay- the Italian, the vegetarian as well as the Goan shack by the poolside but my favourite by far is Pickled Mango. The Resort's spa is also very good and we tried quite a few treatments during our stay there. Thank you, Suvidha, Betsy, Meena and Dipak for looking after us and I appreciate your perpetual smiles and the genuine care that you took. Our villa was very well looked after and kept clean by the ever smiling Sumitra. Thank you everyone at Resort Rio. We really do appreciate the fantastic manner in which you looked after us and we will not forget the genuine warmth and the incredible service that you gave us. We will be back soon. Missing Resort Rio already. Thank you, Jose for the daily chat over a kingfisher. Thank you, Uttam. Thank you Sunil, Agnelo, Silvestre. Thank you all for an incredible time that we had. And thank you Anwar and the rest of housekeeping staff of rose little surprises every day and the genuine warmth and care you showed read hotel review

    Excellent restaurants. The all day dining Pickled Mango serves a variety of international cuisine including of course Indian. There is a vegetarian restaurant also which was simply outstanding, and there is an Italian pizza and pasta restaurant which is also very good.
