My husband and I were very pleased with Villas Del Rio. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the the breakfasts and liked shopping at the on site market. The outdoor pool was heated and very inviting. I recommend this facility to anyone looking for an outstanding, reasonable place to stay.
