Stayed two nights and enjoyed it tremendously. Lovely location, nice room, enjoyed the pools. Wide, plentiful choice of food. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Worthy of special mention is Karen Nowak who worked under pressure in the Lobby Bar yet always had a ready beaming smile. That's pleasing to see anytime ..it makes a person feel welcome! We... More

My fiance and I recently stayed at the hotel mid September, for five days during which he proposed at the hotel, I was surprised the hotel didn't offer us a glass of champagne. They didn't acknowledge it at all which was a bit disappointing. Slobodan is really lovely, and extremely helpful. Our room was only cleaned on request. The website... More

We stayed here from 6th September for a week. We chose the hotel for its beautiful setting and views but we ended up in a room which overlooked a car park. This was after asking to be moved from a room where the entire view was blocked by a large tree which gave the stray cats access to our balcony... More

We spent a week at the Riviera Resort and Spa on a full board special offer in September 2014. After an interesting mini bus transfer from the airport with a driver who spent a large part of the journey with his foot pressed on the floor on roads with steep inclines and hair pin bends while texting on the phone...

Just spend 2 nights on all inclusive basis at the Riviera Hotel through a local offer. Overall our stay was enjoyable, although the property lacks when it comes to entertainment (as hotel offers entertainment for only an older crowd) whereas there is no where to go that offers entertainment close to the hotel. Rooms are a descent size, but cleanliness... More

My wife and I spent the first week in September 2014 at the Riviera. We both found the staff to be very friendly and helpful with a great attitude. The room was lovely and kept spotless. I am a vegetarian and was still utterly spoiled for choice every day and the food was delightful and varied. We simply couldn't fault... More

We went to the Riviera Hotel and Spa in September 2014. The hotel as a whole is excellent. Clean, very good facilities and the views are beautiful. As we were on the all inclusive package, we were wary of what type of food would be served. We had nothing to worry about. Every day for both lunch and dinner there... More

First trip to Malta and to the Riviera Resort for my wife's 50th birthday surprise which we both thoroughly enjoyed. The service was excellent and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The facilities and accommodation was clean, food varied and plentiful, and never a problem in getting a prime spot sunbed. The pizza restaurant was first class,... More
