I was down with a friend for the Cayman Cookout in January, and this was the best hotel we could find online that wasn't outrageously expensive. When my cab pulled in I was pleasantly surprised to see how great the view was and the pool and hotel bar right there. When I checked in the person at the front desk... More

The hotel was modest but clean and pleasant (not a resort). Has refrigerator, microwave and hot plate. Located under flyway as planes come into airport. There is no beach access here. The hotel is next to the ocean but the ocean is deep with a craggy rock shore. Have to walk a mile to Georgetown to catch a public bus... More

I have been staying at The Riviera for the past two weeks while I was looking for an apartment on the island. I have had fantastic service and the staff really went out of their way for me. They actually feel like family after my two weeks here. I am extremely impressed and actually very sad to leave! Great place,... More

We stayed at here on a Friday night since we could not check into Morritt's until Saturday. We arrived on Christmas day in the evening and the only staff member there was the bartender. She checked us in and also gave us a few items that were not in the room (pillow, sheets, blanket for pull out bed). The room... More

the staff was rude and non accommodating. We felt very inconvenienced by the lack of hospitality. This hotel is not near any attractions. The rooms are run down and small and very dirty! Do not waste your money on this run down hotel- motel 6 is better than this place

In December I ran the 2015 Cayman Islands Marathon which had a 5am start time. With this in mind I needed somewhere within walking distance of town and not too expensive. As anyone who's been to Cayman knows inexpensive is non-existent but compared to the hotels up on 7 mile beach this place was near perfect for me. I personally... More

If you wish to spoil your Cayman vacation stay in Riviera Hotel between two oil and gas storages. Yes, you can save money on a rental, but leave wrong feeling for Cayman atmosphere. Oh, snorkeling from the dock is great there, that's for sure.

We flew into Grand Cayman on Friday and didn't have access to our resort until Saturday so I booked in here for one night having found it on Booking.com. The room was very clean, we had two double beds and looked out onto the pool area. The kitchenette was compact as was the en suite shower but it was fine... More

A great little motel right on the waterfront near the drop off point for the ferries. The food here was great - we loved the breakfast burritos and also enjoyed some tasty and very ethically sourced lion fish tacos one evening. The room had good amenities and the pool was fantastic, deep enough to do scuba training dives in. If... More

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. Not because of the rooms or service, but because it was nothing like what is advertised. There is no hotel lobby area, just an office that is sometimes open and sometimes not. The pool and bar are too close to the rooms, so if you have a first... More
