My daughter and I booked this fabulous, stylish hotel in Aprril, and we stayed here for 5 nights. Antonio greeted us with a warm reception and showed us our beautiful, spacious room on the first floor. The room with balcony overlooking swimming pool with palms trees was simply charming. We loved this hotel!!! The staff was fabulous. Gabriella and Yanina... More

This hotel has everything - great location close to the shops, restaurants & beach. It has lovely staff who really enjoy their jobs and are so friendly. The rooms are lovely and spacious and clean. The pool is an added bonus because when we visited in June the sea water was warm and not at all refreshing, so we found... More

Room was spacious and clean. There was air con, wifi in the lobby, (average wifi in the room) and free bottled water. We got a good deal on expedia for just over $100 per night for the room. Perfect location, right next to the Main Street (5th avenue - where all the restauarants and bars and shops are) and down... More

My husband and I booked this little hotel on our last trip to PDC from 6/6/14- 6/1-/14. The hotel is small and nicely located. Overall we loved the hotel. The staff was great. Yanina was by far the highlight of our stay. She was so caring, friendly and polite. Her attitude made us feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. When we... More

We stayed here for 7 nights on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The staff were so helpful with any questions we had and activities we wanted to book and we entered the room on the first day to find rose petals on the bed and a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting for us. It was such a treat after... More

Stayed here May8-12, 2014. Nothing but great things to say about this hotel. Service, location, and rooms were spot on. I'm glad we didn't we didn't go the 'conventional' all-inclusive route. The beach is only a 5 minute walk and the staff is very good with recommendations. Gabriella was simply amazing and exceeded all of our expectations. I would highly... More

Gabriella greeted us with a warm reception, personally showing us to our beautiful room on the first floor. The room was spacious, clean and wonderfully air-conditioned, a welcome relief from the heat outside. Complementary water was provided daily and an inexpensive mini bar was a convenient touch. Our balcony view looked out onto the pool which was well looked after... More

I have to start by saying that the complementary breakfast exceeded my expectations! It was simple but very delicious. I wish I had more time to try the brasserie. The rooms were nice and simple. The bathrooms could use an upgrade. There was almost zero water pressure and basically stood under the dripping shower head. The bed was a bit... More

After a week in Cancun we really enjoyed staying at Hotel Riviera del Sol for two nights. The hotel is charming and well maintained. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was quite good considering it is free. The location is great, only a couple blocks to the beach and a five minute walk to the hub of Playa. Would... More
