3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I would rate it more a 3 star then 4, the food wasn't that great. It was a comfortable enough hotel great for relaxing, not much going on at night. I found that the staff are what makes the place a good stay, especially the Animation team who work really well together and are really good with kids and making... More

I travelled with my partner and although he had been on holidays before this was my first holiday abroad and it did not disappoint!! The hotel was lovely the rooms were a bit outdated but that's what we expected for the price. The room was spacious and air conditioned and had plenty of drawer and wardrobe space for your belongings.... More

We visited this hotel after the Tunisia incident, it was a short notice choice, anyway here goes, we arrived very late due to being the last drop off from the airport, on arrival we were told that any food service was stopped and there was food in the room! Well after hauling heavy suitcases up the stairs we were given... More

This was my first all inclusive holiday and i wasn't sure if it would be for me. The Riviera Resort is very pleasant, clean and tidy with mostly efficient and friendly staff. The reception staff were all very knowledgeable and keen to help except one elderly gentleman who always seemed disinterested. The bar staff were great especially Mario, one note... More

I stayed in this hotel last summer with my family and the hotel is lovely! Food was very good and tasty, there was lots of choices to have! I am a fussy eater and I thought the food selection was good. The pools are quite big and nice although they are salt water. Rooms were clean and spacious. The only... More

A fairly cheaply priced hotel which is good value for money if a little dated and in need of some decoration and modernisation. The food is good and plentiful. Most of the staff are very helpful but some of the reception staff seem to be lacking in knowledge and experience. It is lovely to have a beach so close but... More

My stay at the riviera resort was very pleasant. The staff were all very friendly and always gave service with a smile (karen the bartender is amazing,not enough praise in the world for her hospitality). The animation team were all lovely and were keen to get you involved in activities. The 2 female animators worked tirelessly all day everyday and... More

We were a party of 3 and I was the only one who had visited Malta before as a youngster 37 years ago! I had fond memories and wanted to get out and about with the opportunity to have chill-out days in all inclusive luxury when we wanted. This resort and hotel fitted the bill perfectly. The staff were brilliant,... More

My family and I have today returned to rain..from our amazing two week vacation. Our party of five had a mix of 30's, 60's and young children. When picking our summer holiday location I tend to RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH!! Something that I fear those with negetive experiences did not. As such the trip fulfilled and exceeded in places our reasonable... More

Just back from a 2 week family holiday, and for the first time am finding this hard to review! I would like to issue a 3.5 score but unable to! I have to say this is a 3 star not the 4 star hotel advertised. It seems to attract the "stuff our faces and drink as much as possible" all... More
