I have stayed at Riverina on two occasions and both have been memorable. The senior management went out of the way to make us feel right at home. We were treated to a lovely sea view room, long hours in the sun and a special cultural show on Friday night. It was a heavenly experience that made us want to... More

Nice hotel located on the beach with reasonably big rooms. Stayed here for 3 days/2nights. The food was pretty average overall on the a la carte options that we ordered (did not go for the buffet). The breakfast was the pretty standard spread that you would expect. The crowd was mostly groups of senior citizens and needless to say there... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in April 2009, a ;ate review, so may be different now. A long journey from the airport, especially after the flight from UK via Dubai. A nice pool area, but beach and sea not very enticing, so spent all our time by the pool. Food here average, even had curry on the breakfast buffet... More

We've stayed here for 1 week, it is right on the beach, but in December 2010 the beach was very dirty, was after rains, so the sea was fresh like a river (which is few hundred meters away). Hotel rooms were clean and at least twice a day was checked by staff. Hotel itself would need a bit of renovation,... More

The hotel itself is ok. Lobby, restaurant, garden areas and rooms are a bit run down but adequate, however the water pressure is bad and the shower rooms are moldy. The worst thing was the incredibly pushy crowd of hotel employees trying to sell overpriced wine, lottery tickets etc, they would bother me everywhere, including the pool area, restaurants and...

A good hotel which is raised to excellence by its fabulous staff and position on the South West Coast of Sri Lanka. The local tour guides Ronnie and Baba have become good friends over the 3 visits I have made to the same hotel. Their knowledge is second to none.
