The restaurant had a great view over the river
The restaurant - and bar - were closed on Sunday night! How can you have a 4* hotel which has no dining or bar facilities?????
Staff friendly and helpful
No milk in the room to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee
Nice location next to the crocodile river! Krüger Gate Malelane is nearby.
Location,location, location. Restaurant overlooks the river & the park. Great food and service. 10 mins from the Malalene Gate. Comfortable rooms with good A/C
We stayed overnight at Rio Vista Lodge on our way to Kruger from Durban and found it a very welcoming comfortable stop over. Meals are served on the deck overlooking the Crocodile River - a wonderful view
The restaurant has great food and you can see a lot of wildlife from where you are eating. The room had a nice patio looking over the garden and river. We could see elaphants from our room. The pool is nice for a hot day.
Wonderful location directly at the crocodile river, oposite the Kruger park. You see the animals from the deck while you eat a delicious dinner or breakfast. Convenient close by are shopping, gas station, etc. Great, friendly staff, which is very helpful.
nothing i can think of
The friendly staff in the Quarterdeck restaurant!! The comfortable bed. The room's balcony The view from the Quarterdeck restaurant!!!
The noise generated by the people partying and having a braai around the pool while I was trying to have an afternoon snooze. Not the establishment's fault.
Ideal location for entry into KNP. Staff friendly and helpful. Deck Restaurant good.
Excellent view and relaxed atmosphere ,,, take you bionoculers
Install screen doors so nightlife from kruger can be heard
Perfect location, clean and beautiful room, friendly stuff
Breakfast was a bit poor.
Very neat and clean place, the rooms are well looked after, the air is so clean at Rio Vista, the staff is so professional and helpful. The landscaping is matured and formally designed, I love their garden
The food has been the same since 2000, when I visited the place and it get worse by time, they don't have variety of channels, I think there's about 8 tv channels, If they can improve the above,their turnover will definitely triple. Thanks
Chemical smell in bathrooms
The staff dont know how to do their work. They made a mistake in our bill and they called insulting us instead of apoligiing and asking for the money. They mixed your account with the account of another gests.
Spotless and great comfortable bed. Located on the river where I had a terrific kingship fish dinner
Difficulties with the wifi
arrived late and staff at the front gate had our booking details and keys ready for us to go to sleep; excellent view over kruger/river nice outdoor pool
cold shower in the morning very poor/average breakfast

Staff very helpful and friendly. Garden was lovely. Amazing views from the lawn and restaurant deck of the animals on the river. Room excellent. Quiet and relaxing. 10 mins from Kruger Park so ideal to use as a base or start of your trip.
No restaurant facility on a Sunday night. Although the staff gave us a map to find an excellent restaurant 10 mins away called Hamiltons.
