I cannot say enough how much the Chandler family absolute adore the Rio Bella Resort! To add to our 5-star review, I must include the hospitality and kindness from the General Manager, AnaLisa and owners, Rob and Carole. We could not stop smiling and just taking in the beauty of this resort and all its amenities. They think of everything for you! I am so excited that we are booked for next year! Thank you, AnaLisa, Carole, and Rob. You will forever be our Frio Friends! Thank you again for making our trip so memorable! God bless!

Rio Bella is a wonderful resort located on the best stretch of the Frio River. Three generations of our family had so much fun there and thought it was “glamping” at its finest. The cabin was awesome with a well supplied kitchen, comfy beds, and spacious bathrooms. The balcony was a perfect place to enjoy a meal or a cool beverage. Other perks include wagons to ease packing, floats and kayaks, shade and chairs in the river, hammocks, fire pits, and outdoor games. The cherry on the top was the super friendly and helpful onsite staff. This is something you don’t get with most vacation rental services.

...My husband and I were drawn to the beauty and peacefulness of the clean, clear water of the Frio River. Floating on a tube was so relaxing. There were chairs, hammocks, and swings along the river front to soak up the sun or enjoy the shade. The cabin was clean, organized, and we had a river front view from our gorgeous cabin. Right outside on the patio was a picnic table, a place to barbecue, and a pit for your private evening fire. If you want a place to build memories with your family and friends, this is the place!! Carol and Rob will truly make you feel as though you are a part of their family. Thank you Carole and Rob for the beautiful memories Jim and I created at your fabulous resort. Until we return, take care.

Rio Bella is the nicest place to stay on the Frio! Our cabin was so cozy, clean and beautiful! The pictures online do not do it justice. We stayed in the Trinity cabin with four adults and one toddler and had plenty of space. The air conditioning was kickin’ and made it perfect to come in and relax after spending a hot summer day out on the river. We loved the areas to hang out right outside of the cabins too. We made a fire, played games, and roasted marshmallows. The view from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking! They seriously have the perfect spot on the Frio river to swim and relax. Everyone we encountered at Rio Bella was so welcoming and helpful. I can’t wait to go back!
