Stayed here 1st 2 weeks of July, booked literally last minute as changed our holiday from Egypt. On arrival we were greeted very nicely by a lovely Irish gentleman who was very informative. Our room was on 3rd floor, lifts take literally ages to arrive so we mostly took the steps. Room was very pleasant, bathroom could do with being... More

We booked The Riviera through 'on the beach' and the booking was smooth. However, the 'private taxi' was a shared taxi. That was disappointing but not down to the hotel. We arrived, eventually, around 10.30pm - the check in was quick and simple. I asked if there was anywhere to get food as we'd not eaten, the receptionist said they'd... More

The pool is very clean, but for the price we had paid for we aren't satisfied. Drinks only during the lunch , the buffet lunch was too poor .... even the lemonade from the machine tastes like sparkle water. Coffee time only for residents. for lunch they told us to stay in a different area without a/c.

The hotel is 30 min away from the airport by a private transfer. We arrived to a nice room with sandwiches and fruit. You can buy 6 large bottles of water for 3 Euros at the restaurant. Both pools are nice and loungers comfortable. The animation team do yoga, Zumba, Aqua gym, darts throughout the day. My sister and I... More

We have been to Malta 6 times before so know the island pretty well. This was a last minute booking as was booked up originally for Tunisia and when looked at travel sites the hotels in central Malta were not up to scratch so decided after reading reviews on Riviera to book even though aware in north and quite isolated....

The atmosphere, food & overall service at the Riviera Resort & Spa in Mellieha, Malta is incredible! Me and my boyfriend took a Chinese buffet in Zelano (restaurant within Riviera), which apart from the mouthwatering food, customer service was at its best! To this, I would like to show my extreme graditute to Mr. Drago who took great care of... More

We were booked for Tunisia but due to the tragic events we scrambled for an alternative. No real research done. We just needed a holiday. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't know very much about Malta and I had always dismissed it. However, Malta is so beautiful we will be going back and I cant recommend it enough. LOCATION; is... More

We were at this hotel in July 2015 and felt it had everything that you would need for a family holiday. It is located outside Mellieha with convenient access to the ferry to Gozo and has access to daily boat trips to the blue lagoon and Comino. The hotel is on the waterfront, with amazing views across the bay to... More

Dear Deb4119. Thank you for sharing your personal opinion on Riviera Resort and Spa which I am sure is a very different Resort as well as location that you had originally booked in Tunisia. This is not the type of feedback that we like to receive. From your comments I can see that you were not satisfied in full with... More
