Great Value

The apartment complex is well maintained, the staff is friendly and always willing to help and discuss any concerns you may have. Merced is an awesome manager, his staff Rena, Nichole, Kenneth and Simone are always welcoming and enjoy speaking about any concerns you may have. I definitely recommend coming in the office and introducing yourself, they are overall amazing people! Aside from having good customer service, the maintenance always will find the opportunity to attend to every maintenance request as soon as possible. I know they can have a busy schedule but they definitely do the best and try to finish each task in a timely manner! Also I love the pool, the community really thrives at the pool and have made life long friends by just meeting people at the pool. The community is really welcoming and great for every age or family. The pool is a peaceful place to work and focus on any work that you have or want a great place to just get away and take time to relax. This is a pet friendly community so plenty of pet owners if you have one. I also love the location, it’s next to the Tran and you can take it downtown Tempe if you don’t prefer to drive! Highly would tell other people to move to Rio!!

8 Month Review

Rio has an infrastructure problem - the place is falling apart. My individual apartment is fine, but the buildings proper have a host of problems (elevators scream and shake, car gates work intermittently, the stairs in bldg c are rusted orange and buckling, and the gym has lost AC, doors, bathrooms, and equipment at various points). The staff have always been great to us personally - and rush to fix things when they can. I do not believe that this is a case of negligence, but of being overwhelmed by the sheer amount of problems that crop up in a decaying building. But my main reason for this review is that our mailbox lock is broken. We have not been able to receive USPS mail since June 2022. For some of us who receive medicine through the mail, this is a serious problem that the apartment management does not seem able to address. I do not understand the delay and while I do appreciate that life complicates things and causes delays, nearly three months without mail delivery is ridiculous. The rent is too high per month for a place where you cannot have mail delivered.

Hi Aaron, We thank you very much for taking the time to write this review, and we would like to address your concerns because we share and sympathize with them. Our buildings, like all buildings, require up keep in order to maintain. We have partnered with a new elevator vendor in the last year in order to address elevator issues more efficiently. The vehicle gates were recently repaired and require up keep due to their age. The stair cases and fitness center issues are a result of high usage and age. However repairs are addressed as soon as possible. The mail boxes were broken into and damaged several months ago. The repairs required the post office to repair them however the post office refused to repair the mailboxes until we upgraded/replaced the mailboxes. We had to find a new vendor and schedule the work. The mailboxes are now repaired and residents are receiving mail again. Unfortunately this process took longer than anticipated but the office had no alternate options since mail delivery and mail box locks are managed by USPS only. We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this, and we sympathize with your frustration. We want to do anything we can to improve your experience here, and so if there's anything you need please let us know, we're eager to help. Have a wonderful day, The team at Rio Paradiso
