Had a lovely time at this hotel. Attentive and very friendly staff almost across the board (the cleaning staff wished good morning every morning, which was a lovely touch). The view was lovely and it tended to be pretty quiet. We felt very accommodated all around. Really nice beach space as well- not too easy to swim in, but very... More

Riviera is a very nice and comfortable hotel, it is a very settling hotel with very kind staff, I went there with my family and we had a very great experience, I would highly recommend going here, especially those who like coastal hotels with great sea views!

Bar closes at 11.30, local drinks are included in all inc package and reasonably priced if you wanted more well known brands. Food - OK ish breakfast i think is the better choice for the day. Not many choices at lunch. All in... More
