Having read reviews on this hotel I was a little anxious before going. I needn't have worried after a friendly welcome with bottled water and a sandwich (as it was just after midnight). We went to our room which was nice and very functional. We were all inclusive and could have eaten from 7am to midnight if we had wanted.... More

Brilliant hotel with perfect rooms and a lovely pool with an abundance of sunbeds, however the hotel is greatly let down by the bar staff. The bartender for evenings, Karen, is very good at ripping you off without you knowing. We asked for cheap €3 cocktails and she tells us she is making it a special one. We thought this... More

This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review, and basically my reason for doing so is because this hotel was so disappointing. Shabby would be an understatement. The gentleman on reception when we arrived couldn't smile if his life depended on it. The corridors are dismal, the rooms generally okay but not 4* quality. The... More

We celebrated our wedding in Hola Beach, part of the Riviera Resort and Spa, and we have no regrets. In preperation for the wedding the management and staff were very helpful in guiding us for the best options. Our demands were all met plus a few very well appreciated surprises. On our great event the beach was magical, very neatly... More

It was wonderful waking up to such a fabulous view and just perfect to relax either by the pool or at the beach bar and in August there was still enough sunbeds for everyone despite the hotel been full. The location is fabulous right on the water overlooking Comino and Gozo and is a short boat trip away to explore... More

We booked an extremely last minute holiday to The Riviera Resort & Spa. On making the booking, I needed to email the hotel and ask some additional questions about the All Inclusive service. This was not our first time going AI, however it was in Europe. To be totally honest, the reason we needed a break was to get away... More

Just returned from one week, all inclusive at The Riviera. Holiday was a well needed break for my husband and I. Due to mixed reviews we went with open-minds as never been to Malta and not sure what to expect. We were both surprised in a positive way!!! The hospitality we received from the minute we arrived until the minute... More

Stayed for 2 weeks at this hotel and was not disappointed. Check in was very easy. The food was varied, very fresh and there was always something for everyone. We stayed all inclusive and mostly dined at the Mirasol but used the pizza restaurant on a couple of occasions and this was also excellent. I can't understand a previous review... More

We have just returned after spending 8 days here all inclusive. The hotel definitely lives up to its 4 star rating. Lovely food, different menu every day/evening. Very clean restaurant and all the staff were great. Packed lunch available if you book it before 12.00 the previous day, not exciting, sandwich, apple and a biscuit, plus a bottle of water... More
