Just back from a week in the Riviera. Nice hotel and lovely location. Food was ok and I thought it had weird combinations.

Stayed for 4 nights at this lovely & cosy hotel with my family for a wonderful extended weekend break. The staff are really helpful and the food is great. Rooms are clean with a wonderful view of the outdoor pools and the open sea. We look forward for our next weekend break!

This exceeded our expectations. We wanted somewhere away from the hussle-bussle of a busy resort but that had nice sea views. The food was very good with a good choice, room service was excellent and hotel staff were very helpful overall. We had a rental car, which meant we didn't have to rely on local buses (although the buses apparently... More

We stayed at the Riveria R&S as a time share exchange and knowing RCI standards we thought we knew prior to arrival what to expect - A very high standard - 4/5* On arrival we decided to upgrade to ‘all inclusive’ (A/I) as opposed to room only. We were allocated room 405 which turned out to be located next to... More
