Staff couldn't of been more helpful explaining things to do around the area and also helping to book tours for us. Hotel has all the facilities that you need lovely resort style pool, great tennis court as well, and spa and sauna. Rooms very spacious and everything that is needed is there just the decor is dated and could do... More

Very pleasant stay, unit was nicely furnished, clean, reasonable sized fridge, excellent cooking facilities, good sized balcony and across the road from the beach. It was nice to stay and have everything you needed at hand, only one negative there was no bread/cutting board. Good washing machine/dryer. Parking was undercover. There is a trolley available in the basement to take... More

Excellent location, across from the beach, a few places to eat within walking distance, beautiful swimming pool. Manager is friendly and helpful. Unit was very quiet, even if we had neighbours above, under and next-door. Not much noise at night even it's on the esplanade. Only 'negative' is that interiors look a little bit tired. That said, we would stay... More

We booked in at the Riviera as they had the cheapest accommodation available for our family in Hervey Bay. What a surprise! The apartment was way bigger than we expected and the kids loved the pool and the beach. The staff were helpful and friendly.

They don't really show much interest in the guest as the apartments are overpriced for what you get. They take your money but the accommodation is not what you expect. Old apartments. Didn't feel comfortable. They need to update the apartments and the building and show some interest in their paying guests.

We booked 4 nights, & found 4 sachets of tea bags & 4 of coffee on a papier mache "plate" fortunately I brought extra. The bedroom was so small we could not close the door. The toilet was in a separate cubicle. Two doors from the bathroom. The shower would have been great if the cubicle was bigger, as the... More

Overpriced budget accommodation. No queen size blankets so we had to use single blankets from the second bedroom. Office closes at 5pm so when I called at 4:55pm to tell them the heating for the apartment was not working the disinterested man at reception told me not all apartments have heating, you will have to look in the cupboards to...

Beautiful place to stay. Great service, clean rooms. Was like a home away from home. Staff were friendly. Close to beach and shops. Great view. Plenty of room to move in the living and bedroom areas. Plenty of room for the whole family. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

Stayed there over the Easter holidays in a 3 bedrooms apartment. Apartment clean and comfortable with fully equipped kitchen. Large balcony - a bbq would be a good idea for the balcony! Pool area is small and can be crowded at busy periods. Resort itself is within walking distance to all amenities and a good Irish pub served pub grub... More

This resort is in a great location on the esplanade close to everything but set back from the street so there is no traffic noise in the rooms. Great size rooms with all the requirements. Beautiful pool area perfect for families with children of all ages. We will return!
