Firstly, thanks for the upgrade prior to arrival, I’m sure made a difference to our week. The hotel is clearly a Spa hotel and as we were on the island to explore the historic sites being at the far end of the Island (Valetta can be up to 90 minutes by bus) on full a full board deal was really...

Traveled to Malta for the first time for on weeks winter brake in January - me, my wife and our son who's 1y8m old. We rented a car, so it there was no problem... More

We stayed here for a 5 night winter break. The hotel is in the far north of Malta, away from the towns, which for us with a hire car was fine but for non drivers it may be more of an issue. If you do rent a car there is plenty of free parking. Check in was quick and easy... More

We enjoyed our 7 night stay at the Riviera. I was very glad that we had read all the reviews before going as I felt it helped us get the most out of our stay both at the hotel and for getting out and about. The staff are all very attentive and go out of their way to make your... More

We stayed 5 nights in this 4 star hotel and we have no regrets. All the staff was very welcoming and helpful at all times. Food was good. Our room was on the 4th floor number 461, it was comfortable, clean and with a nice view. The spa was great had a nice massage booked at a good price. A... More

I've just arrived home after 4 days at the riviera. We could not fault the hotel! The staff were lovely and for the price we paid we were very pleased! It's a little out of the way a 20 minute bus ride into the main town. The food was lovely very tasty and a different buffet menu was available each... More

We returned from the hotel two days ago and we were very satisfied. Given that we look forward where the hotel is located (out of city - by the sea, no shops or anything, just a mobile stand which, however, you can buy almost everything from drinks, bagels to fruit etc ...) so we were not surprised and we were...

I have not encountered a 4 star hotel before which charges 3.50 euros per day to have a kettle and tea-making facilities in the bedroom. There were not even enough kettles to go round, and after asking Mary, the receptionist, for one for three days, I pointed out that with all the money that raised, it should have been possible...
