We love this place. Have been coming here a few times a year for the last 9 years. It is our home away from home. The pool is heated and the spa is always nice. Very beautiful and so close to the beach.

We've been coming here for over 20 years. When our kids were small, it was great having a kitchenette, having a pool, and being just steps from the beach. Now that the kids are grown, we skip the kitchenette if it's a short stay (the free breakfast is good, and there are lots of wonderful restaurants in the area); but we still love being just steps from the beach. We prefer upstairs so we can sit out on the balcony, but be aware there's no elevator. They did an extensive renovation a few years ago, everything is in good shape. You may need to ask the desk for help in figuring out the new wall heaters, but they work well (no air conditioning, and you don't need any). Highly recommended.

Have stayed at the Rio Sands on two different occasions. Very pleased and will be back again. Everything you hope for when booking a room on the coast. Walk to a great beach, clean quiet rooms, friendly staff, immaculate grounds, nice continental breakfast , etc. I could go on and on.

Very relaxing. Hotel attendees were so kind and corteous to us, even after i went up to front desk asking different questions. But the young man there made me feel comfortable and of No bother. Hope he did well on his deep sea fishing escapade. Wish i could have stayed longer.

First 4 nites were great. Last 2 not so much. Loud families stayed & disrupted our sleep. No one answered at the front desk. I called 3 times. Breakfast room was a mess last day.

Wonderful place to stay especially for families. The staff is great! They really put every effort into making sure that your stay is as stress free as they can. They pool is clean and kept at 80 degrees. The hot tub is wonderful too. At 9:00 P.M. everything is closed and covered so everyone is wound down for a good night's sleep. Breakfast is served in the commen hall 7-10 A.M. only steps away. 5 different coffees, O.J. is the best. Waffles, regular or blueberry, cereals, fresh fruit, different breads and bagels, yogurt, All self serve. Beach is only 200ft from the Hotel. Rooms have different configurations to fit many different families. All in all 5 of 5! Will be back next time.

Room was newly renovated, spacious and lovely. This is an ideal location and super close to the beach. Walking distance. Free enhanced continental breakfast. The grounds were well taken care and there was delicious hot coffee in the lobby all hours. The employees were helpful and friendly. Lots of noisy kids during this visit but it should not be a reason to score this place anything but a 5 star . After all, isn't the beach all about family time?
