I spent a week in Villas del Rio. Location is really good close to most of the business areas. Apartments are spacious, a bit old furniture but comfortable and clean. If your apartment is on the street side, it could be a bit noisy. Breakfast was good and the rest of facilities such a pool or gym were OK.

We loved the location and the hotel service as much as the spacious rooms and buildings. A little outdated and smelly. Not sure if the air conditioning was working properly or not. However, I would still recommend it.
