We have just returned from our first holiday in Italy staying at the Riviera. Having read the mixed reviews before we went we were not too sure what to expect but we need not have worried. The hotel was spotlessly clean, in a great location and the owners and staff were brilliant. We suspect that some of the negative reviewers would complain about staying in the Hilton. We noticed that some of the reviews complained about the staff talking more to the German visitors - did they realise that in this part of Italy German is taught in the schools as a second language not English? Did they try to speak Italian? A few simple phrases go a long way. This is a three star hotel (could possibly be a four star?) and you get what you pay for. The room we stayed in was immaculate and the view from the large terrace we had was truly amazing. Our son is a very fussy eater and the staff went out of their way to make sure that there was something available for him to eat for dinner. The waitresses, Anna and Niki, were always friendly and attentive and we appreciated the Italian lessons during the meal! The buffet breakfast contained enough permutations to satisfy anyone. The nightcap in the bar was an experience as no measures were used and the gin and tonic arrived in a half pint glass! When we left the owners helped us with our luggage,shook our hands,said goodbye and waved us off. ( a nice personal touch). We will be back to Riva in the future and when we do we will stay at the Riviera again.
