A very nicely appointed hotel with a wonderful view across to the island of Gozo. It is a 20 minute walk to the ferry then a 20 minute ferry ride to the island. The hotel has plenty of facilities and is very well kept. The indoor pool is like a warm bath - ideal in February. The buffets are plentiful,... More

It was a very relaxing stay, kind and helpful staff, a comfortable room too. The upper floor rooms possibly are warmer than the others. A lovely reception area and outdoor pool area, and the spa is nicely equipped. Buffet breakfast and dinner were quite satisfactory, nothing too extravagant, but varied flavours and items; dining room staff were efficient. We enjoyed... More

Enjoyed my recent stay in the Riviera Hotel. Stayed with 3 friends on a girly holiday. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Food was good in both restaurants. Enjoyed Spa treatments in the Spa downstairs, very enjoable and affordable. OK free WIFI, good in lobby, in the rooms it seems to drop coverage and then pick it up again. Hotel... More

We only stayed here for one night and were glad it was only one. Whilst the facilities are good, when we used the indoor pool we could not find the showers so had to go back to our room wrapped in a towel. The restaurant was busy and reminded us of a buffet at a Butlins-style accommodation. We went into... More

We stayed half board and the food was really very good for both breakfast and evening meals. There was a cooked and continental breakfast (though no fruit) and a selection of meats, vegetables, pizza, pasta, salads and desserts for dinner. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean. This hotel should be rated as three stars and not four. A few things... More

Checked out this morning,and am writing this as soon as I got home. Twice I found cockroaches in our bathroom.Also the bath plug did not fit,so the bath drained itself pretty fast.On the last night it took 10 minutes to get our paid for drink from the restaurant. Otherwise this place id full of potential,it will just depend on luck.For... More

A very pleasant stay - we had breakfast lunch and evening meal. The food was very good considering the amount of people and Nationalities they had to feed the trick was to establish hot or cold - we considered the Bistro but the only real difference was 'steak' - all the food on site was cooked in one place.
