Close to a lotsubmitted by Brittany D. - |Recommended: YesPolite staff, great gym, and nice pools. Close to so much INCLUDING the light rail that can take you into downtown Phoenix or Tempe. Tempe Marketplace is close which has restaurants and shopping.

Love itsubmitted by Annie M. - |Recommended: YesThe apartments are nice and spacious, everyone is super friendly, great community.
response from property -Hi Annie, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide wonderful feedback regarding our community! - Rio Paradiso Team
We LOVE Valeriesubmitted by Tara S. - |Recommended: YesThis is an older complex so obviously things will be older and not as shiney and new as some of the other complexes in the area. That aside, the staff is great and are very understand and accommodating. Valerie has become like an old friend and she is beyond exceptional at her job. She has gone above and beyond to help us with a transfer that came up unexpectedly due to unforeseen circumstances. We cant express enough how great she was The only complaint I have as a resident of almost 7 years is that the maintenance is horrible. It's easier to fix lights and filters on our own than wait 3 days for them to help this was never the case years prior . Unfortunately the grounds are not being cleaned and kept as they should be. That aside, the apartments are spacious and I cant say enough about how great Valerie is
response from property -Hi Tara, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience here at Rio Paradiso! We think Valerie is exceptional too!

Website isn't good enoughsubmitted by Garrison W. - |Recommended: NoThere is no way to look at the breakdown of your monthly bill it, I click on show more balance history and nothing ever happens. And the weidner apartment homes banner at the top blocks me from clicking on the different navigation tabs on chrome. Do you guys even look at your site referring to the weidnerphoenix portal.

I love living heresubmitted by Paul M. - |Recommended: YesI love the property, the amenities, the staff, the view I have - the proximity to downtown and Tempe, the ease of the light rail, the convenience to the airport. I have not had any negative experiences since living here with the community or staff. The only complaints I would have are concerning tenants but have lived in enough apartments to know that this comes with the territory. We are only 3 months into our lease but hope to renew when it comes up in 2020

Good living spacesubmitted by Jared G. - |Recommended: YesA lot of early problems that were addressed promptly, but no problems after the first week. Not great package handling, wish there was a better system. Though furnished apartments are advertised, none are ever available, so make sure you look into furnishing pricing.
