Coming in Bulgaria by car, I was always preoccupied to have a safe parking place. And the Riviera Resort is providing that. But my wife and I love really the hotel, with all rooms to the sea front and with beautiful view. Well, maybe not 100% five stars, but definitely more than four stars. The park is great, you can...

The hotel is fantastic. The view, the pool area, the beach, the rooms are very nice. Services including cleanliness, staff and food quality are medium to poor. Cleanliness - not once I found dirty cups & glasses or food remains on cutlery. Also, the bar from the pool area could be cleaner. This is not acceptable for any hotel 1*... More

I visited Golden Beach because of a congress held in the Riviera Beach hotel. In late May I did not even think to go swimming, but I saw others doing it. The beach looked great and the pool was big.
