Party-seekers love the carnival-like atmosphere at the 4-star Rio Hotel & Casino. “In Brazil, Rio is party central, and in Las Vegas so is this sprawling resort just west of the Strip,” says Fodor’s.

The off-the-Strip location may be a deal breaker for some, but big-name acts keep this hotel in the running. The hotel is home to Chippendales, Penn & Teller’s signature magic show and a 100,000-square-foot casino that hosts the World Series of Poker every year. Thankfully, there is a complimentary shuttle that runs between the hotel and The Strip, which is about a mile away.

The party starts at VooDoo Beach, where real sand meets four tropical pools. The 21 and up crowd can enjoy pool-side cocktails and a live DJ in the adults-only section known as The Voo. As the sun goes down, head up to the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub for an "open-air party worth checking out" (Fodor's). The views from the top are phenomenal. More adventurous guests can also catch a unique perspective from the 400-foot-high zipline, strung between two towers of the hotel.

All rooms here are called suites, though they don't have separate rooms. They are, however, spacious and many come with “spectacular views” (Gayot) of the city.

Make the most of Vegas with deals for spa days, gourmet dinners and world-class shows.

From the press:
  • "The overarching Mardi Gras theme of Masquerade Village has been toned down in recent years, but certain aspects remain – Voodoo Beach pool has real sand and waterfalls, while VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub is an open-air party worth checking out” -- Fodor’s
  • “This hotel doesn't lack for creature comforts ... Each suite has all the basic amenities plus spectacular views of Las Vegas" -- Gayot

Enjoyed Most: No there was not.
Other Comments: The hotel room itself was a big let down. I had never satayed at the Rio before and was expecting it to be a little more updated and clean. There were blood stains on the wall! I don't see how that could be left to dry. Overall, it felt like a cheap motel rather than a "Vegas hotel."

Enjoyed Most: The room was very nice and spacious. Liked the pool area.
Other Comments: Minor complaint - ice machines on multiple floors did not work. Restaurants were kind of pricey$$ but food was good.
John Sep 12, 2016 Poway, CA, United States
Enjoyed Most: Floor to ceiling window view, in room mini fridge.
Other Comments: Extremely crowded everywhere, very long lines even at check in, despite already paying through a third party, bed linens and in-room utensils (cheap plastic and paper cups) not indicative of a 4 star resort. Pool area nice, but saw trash in some of the pool area- again very crowded and closed promptly at 6pm.

Rose Jan 30, 2016 Duluth, MN, United States
Enjoyed Most: The room was very spacious, view of strip was good. We took advantage of the free shuttle which was right out front of the building. They had heaters going which made it more comfortable to wait. It was a good location.
Other Comments: This is not against the Rio Hotel itself because all of the hotels were the same with respect to smoking. Unfortunetly I will not be able to return to Las Vegas because of them all allowing people to smoke. Hopefully someday not in my lifetime but perhaps in my grandchildrens some very smart person will build a smoke free hotel.. Wish I had tthe money I'd do it myself.

Enjoyed Most: They upgraded us to a beautiful suite on a high floor.

Enjoyed Most: Dim sum restaurant.
Other Comments: Very unhappy with TRAVELZOO. Booked as a "special price" but found that the room was actually less expensive. Hotel refused to lower the price. Not pleased.
