My family and I have visited The Riviera Resort and Spa several times and we are always satisfied with the food and service. All the staff is extremely helpful especially Ivan Drago and Vincent Curmi. Looking forward to visit the hotel again in the near future.

Had an overnight break with my two daughters and was lovely. Very clean staff lovely. We stuck to the times for children in the indoor pool out of respect for other guests attending without children. Room was great and highly recommend.

Well, the hotel was lovely. We were very fortunate to have a giant pair of suites (guess it was because of the time of year). Unfortunately this hotel turns the heating off at night and in the morning, which is the cold part, and puts it back on in the afternoon, which is the hot bit. Fortunately, they provide blankets...

Disgusting food, not enough choice. Everything bit of food was very simple and nothing for kids to eat. Rude staff. Not enough things for kids. Staff don't like kids been around. Indoor pool is lovely. The outdoor pool is very cold, didn't see one person in there because it was far too cold to cope.
