"Very nice villa. You felt you were staying in someones home"

lovely Villa in a good location overlooking the golf course. It was spacious inside with all the facilities you need. Some very nice touches by the owners such as a bottle of fizz on arrival chilled and ready to drink. The fridge was also stocked with some wine, soft drinks etc which was helpful. There is noise from the nearby road but we got used to it and it was much quieter at night. We enjoyed the pool and used it everyday. Our flight was delayed and so we missed meeting the maid. However, the owners were great as they phoned me to make sure we had arrived and explained where the keys were. Very thoughtful of them.

"Fantastic time with amazing friends."

Stopped here for my hen do with 11 girls. We had the time of our life. Eva n Jose had a bottle of fizz waiting for us on arrival. There were the perfect hosts and we're accessible by text, phone and email. The villa was spotless and spacious, we will definitely be back again. Taxis to banus were around 20 Euros and to marbella 11 euros which isn't much when there 4 to a taxi. Thank you again Eva n Jose.

Thank you for your reviews, it was a pleasure to have you in our villa, thank you for looking after it as if it was yours! See you again soon!

"Amazing Villa"

Hello, This Villa is very well kept by the owner, we had no problem. They kept a bottle of Cava as a welcome which was a nice surprise!! The views of the Villa are very nice and not far from Marbella City Centre. I would recommend this Villa to be booked.. absolute fantastic. The Pool is very nice and all the bedrooms are great, the kitchen has everything and is great for big groups. Akash

Thank you for your review, Akash! We hope to see you again soon!!

We stayed at this beautiful villa in September for a girls long weekend break to celebrate a friends 40th birthday - it was perfect! We arrived and Jose came to meet us and was very friendly and welcoming - he showed us all around the villa and told us everything we needed to know before driving a few of us to the local supermarket to stock up on supplies. He was only ever a phone call away and more than willing to help us during our stay. The villa was amazing and had everything we needed, the swimming pool was gorgeous too. All I would say is that when there's a group of 12 girls like us there was definitely a lack of mirrors around the villa! Jose and Eva could not have done anymore from the moment of booking to our departure date. We were made to feel very welcome and all had a fabulous time. Thank you so much, we would definitely all like to return one day! Thank you Jose and Eva!

Thank you for your review, we are happy our villa met your expectations! We will try to get some more mirrors to please our female guests, even though there are 5 already! Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Eva & José

"Perfect holiday!"

Myself and 11 family members stayed in this villa for 10 nights and it was perfect! The garden is beautiful, plenty of seating and a lovely pool. You can hear the motorway but it is not excessive and you soon get used to it. The villa itself is spacious and clean, all kitchen utensils are provided and the lounge area is very comfortable. We explored the local area a little and easily found the beach and the local bus stop where we caught a 220 every night into Old Town. We will be coming back!

"Clean spacious villa!"

I stayed here for my hen do, we were a group of 12. There was plenty of room for us all and the villa is very clean, spacious and well equipped. For a large group of girls staying it would have been nicer to have a few more mirrors around the villa but we all managed and wasn't too much of a problem. Its a nice sized pool, could of done with a few more sunbeds as there are only two, but not a major issue. Its is a 15 min cab ride to Puerto Banus, we used the local mini cabs who came quickly to take us where we needed to go. Jose was very helpful and available on the other end of the phone if we needed him and also recommended a few places to go. I would recommend the villa for large groups and family holidays.

"Great villa for a large group - Everything you need!"

I stayed at Villa Rio Real Marbella over Easter bank holiday with 7 other girls for a Hen do. Jose and Eva were very helpful with information from the start and Jose kept in contact with us while we were in the villa. The villa was clean and well stocked with drinks which was great when we first arrived. These could be replaced or payed for. There was an Ipod dock which was great so we could listen to music. We had some trouble with taxi's often getting lost, even though we used the directions given to us by Jose. It was also bank holiday weekend so it cost us 50 euro to get to Puerto Banus and 25euros to get to Marbella town. However I am sure it is usually much cheaper. I suggest you hire a car if you want to go out and about. Other reviews said there were shops and beach in walking distance but we didn't find these. The pool was plenty big enough for all of us, however it rained most the weekend so we didn't get any use out of it. I wouldn't recommend it to older people/wheelchair users or people with very young children that would require a pushchair unless you have help to get up and down the stairs to the villa. They're very steep and it could be a struggle. The only criticism I have is that we booked a personal chef to come and cook a BBQ for us. I checked with Eva in advance that the BBQ was big enough but when arriving at the villa it was quite obvious it wasn't big enough for what we needed and also dirty. Instead the chef used the two ovens in the kitchen which were handy! The front door was broken from the previous guests, this wasn't a problem as there were other doors to use and Jose kept us informed about what was going on as soon as we arrived. Although there are plenty of showers for 8 people the hot water ran out quickly. When there are 8 girls trying to get ready at the same time it caused a problem. Overall we all had a great time and there is everything you need. I would recommend this villa. Thank you very much Jose and Eva.

Thank you for your review! I wish the weather had been better for you so that you could enjoy the pool and the garden more. Thank you for the comment with the BBQ, we didn't realize it might not be large enough for large groups, we will make sure that our future guests know about its actual size and make sure it is nice and clean for them to use. We apologize for the inconvenience with the door - sorry we couldn't fix it prior to your arrival, some guests leave surprises behind! We are doing our best in having the villa perfectly ready for our guests, I believe this defect was an exception. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Eva & José

"Highly recommended!!"

We booked this villa for a hen do ... And it was perfect! The location was superb, despite the motorway being close by, we really didn't notice the noise. You'd definitely need a car if staying for more than a few days; but a taxi to old town Marbella was only €10 and to the bars/clubs it was only €18. Communication between myself and José & Eva was fantastic, right from the start! They were so helpful, from recommending taxi transfer companies from the airport to directing us to local supermarkets. The villa itself was lovely! So spacious; it was perfect for 9 women!! The pool was fabulous albeit a bit chilly; but it is March!! We all agreed that it was a fantastic villa and have all said we'd love to return - I've already passed on the details to a friend! Thank you to José and Eva xx

Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure, we are looking forward to seeing you again soon! Eva & José

"The perfect stag do"

We had 5 days and nights at Villa Rio and wished we could have had more. Jose greeted us upon arrival (at 01:00) with a big smile and warm manner. From the outset he was accommodating, polite and bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, which included him driving us to the local supermarkets himself. As for the Villa, it is situated just off the main Autovia (dual carriageway), up on the hill. Although it overlooks the road, you soon get used to it and concentrate more on the view of the sea and south facing garden which allows Spanish sunshine all day. The gardens are well kept and the pool was big enough for all 8 of us to sit and relax comfortably. There is a BBQ and seating area which we used most evenings, overall a very relaxing area. Inside, there is a spacious living space which we found more than big enough for all of us to sit and relax. There are plenty of rooms available and nobody felt cramped or living on top of each other. The kitchen at the bck of the villa was enough for us to make breakfasts and snacks, however due to being all white needed regular wiping down. This wasn't a problem though as all cleaning utensils were readily available and it was all easy to clean. As for getting around, a taxi into Marbella was between 10-12 euros and they arrived within 5 minutes. However, if you were looking at going further afield, i'd recommend hiring a car. The beach is a short 10 minute walk away and there are watersports and beach clubs available nearby. Overall, a fantastic Villa close enough to Marbella to enjoy the town but a nice distance enough to be in the countryside. Spacious, clean and fantastic service. I look forward to having a reason to head down again soon!

Thank you very much for your words, it was a pleasure to have guests like you. We hope to see you soon again! Eva & José

"Excellent Hospitality, friendly and helpful owner"

Myself and 8x friends stayed at the villa for 6 days and enjoyed every minute. The villa itself is spacious and clean and there was more than enough room for all of us. It is situated approximately 5 minutes from Marbella so it is in an ideal location. The only thing is I would recommend hiring a car. Even though it is close, the villa is situated near to a motorway so taxi's or a hire car are essential. Jose and Eva couldn't have been more helpful. Organising the villa, transport to and from the airport and transport around Marbella itself was made easy and stress free and they both went out of their way to help us. We couldn't have asked for anymore. We all really did have a brilliant time and would not hesitate in recommending this villa

Thank you so much for your lovely words, it was a pleasure! Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Eva & José
