Reviews for Rio Vista Lodge
This is a very nice place- 5 star class inside the rooms! They seem to be recently renovated but the lodge staff forgotten to mention that we might be smelling some paint like vanish like kinda smell in the rooms due to the renovations, but otherwise the rooms are top class- I loved the bathroom design specifically! Oh, no WiFi in the rooms is another downside of the lodge- one has to go to the restaurant or reception to get WiFi! Best views of Kruger national park, with animals parading around the river all day!
Great value, easy access to Kruger National Park, attentive staff, clean and comfortable rooms
Nice hotel with garden and restaurant over krueger park fencing
The room top level and the and the food was so delicious, don't change those chev they know their story.
This place is wonderful. The staff is super friendly, the view can't be beat, and the grounds are well maintained and welcoming. I highly recommend anyone staying here if they're planning to visit Kruger.
Very nice room, big, and the food is also good and everything for a just price. The restaurant view is awesome. The staff is very kind.
Fantastic setting, really friendly and helpful staff. Overall a really nice place to relax and recharge. Look forward to visiting again in the near future.
Amazing hotel in front of the river and Kruger Park. Very romantic with that nice garden and the intimate swimming pool. Restaurant is also good. We had one of the best rooms I think with a balcony, a good view. Personal was good.
Best place to stay in Malelane. Good restaurant. Excellent view of Kruger Park. Staff, amenities, etc. etc. Excellent.
Awesome view. Great food.
I stay here 3-4 times a year, for the last 6-7 years, still waiting for a bad experience. Nice view, ambiance and good food at the Deck restaurant. Ill be back!
Great views, aircons that work well and a lovely breakfast.
Stunning in every way staff are friendly and helpful beds are comfortable wildlife on your doorstep couldn't ask for better
"Very enjoyable one-nighter!"
Just want to thank the staff at Rio Vista Lodge for their friendly service and hospitality. We made a last minute booking due to unforeseen circumstances and our request for availability was dealt with quickly and efficiently.Thank you to Anita for showing care and concern to all the guests by greeting and chatting.We'll definitely recommend the accommodation to friends and would love to come stay again in future.
"Would have been 4 Stars if not for..."
First the good points: Rio Vista is located on the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking the Kruger Park and offers the possibility of seeing wildlife from The Deck Restaurant - which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is also about 10 minutes away from the Malelane Gate to the KNP. The rooms are well-appointed and have good facilities. Our stay was however spoilt by the dirtiness of the rooms and the corridors. It appears that the only "cleaning" that is ever done is making up the beds and changing the towels, I don't think anyone ever checks if the rooms have been properly cleaned. The carpets and floors were dirty, the balcony was never cleaned in the 3 days we spent there, and the list goes on. I would gladly have given Rio Vista 4 or maybe 4 and half stars, but I can't.
