I booked this hotel on october last, from the photos I found it attractive. They provided me a room which I refused to take as the door was cracky and the view was not good even after spending money for luxury deluxe room. I asked the receptionist to change my room but he responded in cold way that they don't... More

We occupied 3 rooms with my family members for 2 weeks. It passed like 2 days. The best part of it is its setup. It is built within lush gardens dominated by coconut trees and beautiful landscape. The scenery is heavenly at any time of the day. The coconut tress offered an amazing feature with the sea in the background.... More

Next comes TV does not work, electrician took 2 hours to fail, again they shifted us to a different room. Coming to food, I would prefer something on the... More

The views from the deluxe rooms are serene and worth spending... More

We stayed here for one night last year.... At that time Spa was not operational.... Rooms were super clean and comfy.... It has small bridge to cross which will lead you to very clean and very less visited Mandrem beach....

The best place to stay in Goa! A bit far from crowd but a happening and soothing place…Not so far though! The beach view was amazing! We celebrated our first Marriage anniversary there and due to this place it was fabulous…just as we wanted it to be! The entire Resort staff is polite and did provide efficient service! Some technical... More

First of all, I personally went to many places to look at accommodations. While Riva is not the very best in the area, it is in the top 3. We got a pretty good deal for our 2 week stay, and I enjoyed it overall. We stayed in the bungalow facing the beach. We left our doors open and let... More

But this year- March 2014 on recommendation of a good friend I stay at the " Riva Beach Resort " which is situated in a quiet and pleasant village called Mandrem in north Goa. The hotel is fairly new, beautifully constructed and is... More

A horrible experience to put it very politely. This resort is dirty and the service appalling . We checked out three nights after we checked in and had to pay out an extra 275 British pounds over what we had already paid for this holiday to check ourselves into another hotel. We could not have survived 14 nights here! All... More
