We didn't book and just rocked up and still got a room for five nights. I don't recommend that but it worked for us. Brian and Chris are fantastic managers and helped us with where to go and with downstairs parking issues. Our room was on the fifth floor no 42 which is a two bed two bath big lounge... More

We had a short family holiday here for 3 nights. Booking & check-in was quick and easy with the friendly owners. - 3 bedroom room was huge and had plenty of room. We were on the 5th level and the only concerning part being up high with young children, was no screens on any of the windows. Furniture is under... More

We have been to this resort four times and find it a relaxing place. This time we had a two bedroom unit with a large balcony which is extremely weather proof. This resort is situated across from the beach and also has a good pool and sauna. We enjoy it as we can sleep in or have an afternoon rest... More

We chose this particular resort as my son was competing in sport on the esplanade and we wanted to be within walking distance of his event. I'm sure in it's day the Riviera resort was ultra modern but now appears quite dated & in need of an upgrade. Many of the apartments seem to be privately owned so the decor... More

I stayed at this property for business in mid december and was immediately impressed with the warm greeting I received at the front counter! I had stayed at this property a couple of years prior under a previous owner and was less than impressed. New owners are friendly and eager to please. Apartments are exceptionally clean and comfortable! Beautiful gardens... More
