Everything was amazing. To the wonderful staff that took care of our little party. We are so incredibly grateful to y'all for taking care of us and working with us through all of the rescheduling that occurred due to Covid postponing our surprise birthday party for a year. We were so happy that we were able to give our girl her big special day at your beautiful room. This is party that we will remember. It was simple but beautiful and fit for the birthday princess.

This place was perfect. Walking distance to lovely hotels and St Mary's Church. We had the Grande Vista Ball room & 130 guests. At first I was concerned that it would be a little tight, but there was plenty of room. I would definitely recommend this place for a wedding or any other large celebration. It was perfect!

There aren’t enough words to summarize how incredible the Rio Plaza team is! From day one, they delivered top-notch service and exceeded all expectations. My husband and I were assisted day and night from the team, and they helped to keep us calm every step of the way. We had our rehearsal dinner at Pizzarita’s at the same location— it was amazing. The food was so good, my husband and I went back the next day to grab a bite before our wedding that night. We went with Grande Vista for our ceremony and reception. We wanted an intimate, romantic event with our 110 guests... and boy, did the Rio Plaza team deliver! The food at the reception was amazing, the drinks were excellent, the rooms are stunning, and the staff members are very professional! Many of our family members and friends told us the next day how this was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to.

Milestone Birthday 


Rio Plaza was absolutely the BEST venue for my Disco Birthday Party. The Team at Rio Plaza was helpful, professional  and efficient. Most importantly,  they understood my vision for this milestone birthday party. They were also on top of all the deadlines and coordinating with the DJ, LED dance floor and lighting crew, the menu and bar. I took the decorations to Rio Plaza, explained what I desired and they accomplished it perfectly. The Staff went over and beyond to insure that my birthday party was a success!!!  I would highly recommend Rio Plaza for your celebration!

We chose the Grande Vista room and OMG! after walking in on my wedding day July 6 this year and seeing the room all set up I was just in Aww! It was perfect. Christine, Kimmie and Melanie we're perfect. These ladies helped me from beginning to end. I couldn't have asked for anything better

Our event was very well attended and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.  Your staff was amazing.  Thank you for all your help!

The Team was amazing. The attention they gave us and our event was second to none! They definitely went above and beyond exceeded our expectations! The Staff's demeanor and customer service skills were phenomenal! They made us feel very comfortable and explained everything in detail.... NOTHING hidden, EVERYTHING upfront!  Their sense for decorating and ideas for setting up our decorations.... WOW!  Job well done!  We will definitely hold future events here!

Rio Plaza was the perfect venue to host our social event. The host was very quick to respond with any questions and concerns, and was even flexible to modify the menu a few days before the event. The staff was very friendly and had everything set up as needed. The venue itself had a very pretty interior with great views of the river walk below. Would definitely recommend!
