8/10 Very good

Very nice treatment of 2 difficult boys
The hotel owner was very nice even though we were usually drunk and annoying, but he was able to shrug it off and made our stay very pleasant. Above a pub also which is handy.

Awesome hotel, close to everything, the beach, the supermarket, restaurants and take aways, ATMs. Great service by all the staff. A big thank you to Apostli and Poppy who always looked after us for breakfast, lunch, drinks , midnight snacks.

A place to remember
I have no words to say enough thanks to the lovely hotel's owner mr. Vasilis for upgrading our room.for the entire stay (10 days) We loved the views, the neighbourhood, the staff (not many, but efficient ) This place is literally in the middle of everything, from nice dinning spots to souvenir shops and just across there is a CARREFOUR. The beach is 2 minutes walk away from this perfect spot -RIO HOTEL. If somehow we will return to KOS i am sure that RIO HOTEL IS OUR NO.1 CHOICE. Alexandra& Gabriel (room #201)
