What You Need To Know:
Rio is a pretty nice joint, the decor is classical hotel architecture but the casino has definitely shown some wear. The table minimums start at HK$25 for roulette inside bets to HK$100 for baccarat and blackjack and go higher. The crowd is reasonably friendly although not much, if any, English is spoken here.
Rio Hotel Macau is a very pretty hotel located on the north side of Avenida de Amizade about mid-way between Grand Lisboa and Golden Dragon. It is about a 10 minute walk from Hotel Lisboa to the west and Star World to the south.

Rio offers 449 guest rooms and suites plus a Presidential suite (I wonder which President stayed here?). The rooms are very well appointed and feature flat screen tvs, mini bar, broadband internet, safes, movies on demand, walk in shower and separate tub. The rooms are clean and very well maintained... if you cant get a room at one of the newer joints, Rio is a great option for the discriminating traveller.
Rio Hotel Macau offers four dining options including: Fu Ho Ah Yung Abalone Restaurant (abalone), Iida (Japanese), Rio Coffee Shop (international), Rio Lobby Bar (booze and wine).

Rio Casino is one of the nicer of the 'hotel joints' in Macau. The first floor features a handful of baccarat and blackjack tables with pretty low limits. A quick jaunt up the escalator you will find even more baccarat as well as roulette, blackjack and a bunch of slot machines tucked away in the far corner. The next floor up is all VIP.
Attractions and Things To Do:
Attractions listings are coming soon.
Is it possible to have a casino that is shiny and clean and run down as well? If this makes sense to you then you understand the Rio. The facilities are very well kept, but the table games are quite worn and possibly need to have their felt and chips replaced.
Casino Games Offered:
Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Three Card Baccarat, Sic Bo, Video Slots
