We were delighted with our choice, based on other reviews. Located on a quiet corner one block off the "Quinta" and one long block to the beach. All the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Breakfast changed every day, with lots of options, nice setting overlooking the pool. We had a superior room with a little balcony---very bright, cheery and... More

Stayed wife my wife in September. It was a lovely little hotel, well positioned as it is at the less intense end of 5th Avenue.

Our room was very spacious and very clean, the air conditioning was excellent, the rooms were... More

They say good things come in small packages. Riviera Del Sol is a perfect example of this. This hotel is not for the All-Inclusive traveler wishing to only stay on the property. There are many Boutique hotels scattered around PDC all claiming to have the best situation for their guests. The great advantage to RDS is location; half a block... More
