This hotel's best asset is its location: over the Adriatic, on the slopes of a small cliff, the sea is outside of the windows to smell and gaze day and night. The rooms are split between those in the older hotel below the Strada Costiera and those above it, which- although further away from the restaurant- have a broader view... More

Stayed in may for 2 nights in two different rooms. The view is absolutely amazing. This is not so easy to find on a coast where the most hotels have no view at all. Theay reopened after a reconstruction and I would say all the precedent reviews can be now forgotten. The food is from good to very good, nice... More

Lovely hotel with fantastic view over the sea. Beautiful restaurant terrace and good food and wine selection. Rooms are not very big but have all the necessary amenities. Most rooms face the sea. Breakfast is good and reception very helpful.

A magnificent venue, unfortunately spoiled badly spoiled by stingy maintenance and inadequate 'food and beverage' staffing levels and competence. We were assigned a room in the original wing (built 1898) and found it quaint if somewhat tired. Having spent eight nights there we had the opportunity of observing the various services..... breakfast service: two waiters to serve over a hundred... More

A beautiful Hotel right on the cliffs above the Adriatic Sea, was spoilt by the lack of service and poor food in the Restaurant. Our room was small but had a great view of the sea and a balcony. The Hotel itself was gorgeous. They just need to hire a new Chef and teach the staff about customer service.

We absolutely loved Hotel Riviera & Maximilian's. From the moment we were warmly greeted at check in we felt very much at home. Our room was probably a bit on the small side but the view was to die for. Sitting out on the balcony watching the Adriatic glisten in the sun and listening to the waves swirling below us... More

The location is superb view wise and it is a treat to have meals on the veranda overlooking the sea and the town in the distance. There is a steep route down to the sea which you can walk in 5 minutes or take the elevator. The hotel provides free towels but you will need to pay for a lounger... More
