They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts – and that’s certainly true of this place. From the outside, it’s a typical high-stacked Benidorm hotel. But inside, it’s recently had a serious makeover – especially the shared areas. The bar, for example, has a funky retro vibe, with orange and white chairs. Likewise the lobby and lounge have a stylish edge, with geometric sofas and low-slung armchairs. Rooms, meanwhile, are quite simple, but are kitted out with the essentials like air-conditioning and satellite TV.
The hotel scores points for location, too. It manages to walk the line between ‘in a secluded spot’ and ‘in the heart of the action’. You’ll find it on a quiet road that’s only about a ten-minute walk to the main bars and restaurants of Benidorm. Another ten and you’ll be at Levante Beach.
As for the pool here, it’s a decent size and is split into three separate sections. You’ll also find a pool bar, serving up pizzas and toasted sandwiches during the day.
On the subject of food, buffet meals are served in the restaurant. Like most parts of the hotel, it’s been given the minimalist treatment. Rounding things off there’s a British pub, where you’re guaranteed a decent pint.

Just had 2 weeks full board including transfers and everything went very smoothly - booked online with Thomsons for £425 each - (great customer service) You can't get decent self catering for that Bar prices are very cheap Rooms are kept very clean Entertainment is much better quality But although food is generally good - the quality of the fish and meat has gone down in my opinion and I hope it improves before our next visit in September That said it offers outstanding value for money and as other people have stated you can eat some meals out - and even then it is still good valueMore

Recently stayed in the Rio Park. Rooms basic but clean. Great choice of food, my husband is fussy but always managed to find something. Our party included 2 children one aged 13 and the other 10 they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Staff very friendly. New entertainment team working hard. Competitive prices for drinks inside the hotel was a surprise. Not too far from bars but just enough not to be be blasted our. We will definitely return to this hotel.More
Stayed 9th-18th April.This is my 3rd stay in the Rio Park Hotel and was just as good as I expected..The staff are very friendly and do a wonderfull job..Rooms basic but cleaned daily..Hotel spotless..Great food,better than some 4*hotels in Benidorm.You can also buy pizza,chips,burgers etc at the poolbar or main bar.Swimming pool is a good size and you never feel crammed in even in high season,plenty ov sunbeds and deckchairs and even covered areas.They do adults and childrens activities at certain times during the day which my daughter loved.Drinks reasonably priced even though they have increased slightly..Went out most nights so cannot comment on the entertainment but the staff done a Grease show which was fantastic considering they only had 13 days to practice for it.Some people state this hotel is only for old people,this is not true,as like most hotels in Benidorm if the schools are on holiday there is always plenty ov children around.10 min walk to the beach.Great hotel,and hope to be back soon.More
