“First holiday in Riva lake garda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

The best three star hotel we have ever stayed in. And better than some so called five star hotels!!!
Must give a special mention to the two girls who work in the restaurant . Well done girls you work very hard and it was appreciated by us. Meal times are well run and the restaurant is immaculate.
Will stay at this hotel again.

Just returned from our second trip to Riva and our second stay at the Riviera. We had the same fantastic rooms and service as last year - talk about a sense of 'deja vu'! We thought before we set off that the experience couldn't possibly be as good as the last time - how wrong we were. Maurizio, Cristina, family (+friend) and staff were absolutely brilliant yet again. As my wife said you sometimes forget that you are in a hotel and think that you are staying with a family in their house. The fact that they referred to it as their home a few times reinforced this. Our son is a very fussy eater but by the end of the holiday he was trying things on the menu that were outside his comfort zone. The weather was a lot better than last year so we spent some time at the pool and we can particularly recommend the outdoor hot tub. The nightcap gin and tonics were as impressive as last year and the young man behind the bar was brilliant. On the last night we were having a final drink outside when he drove out on his way home. He made a point of parking his car and coming over to say goodbye to us. That is friendly service! If we can save enough pennies we will be returning to the Riviera for another brilliant holiday in the near future. Mille Grazzia.

We visited Lake Garda on May 2013 and stayed in this hotel for one week and had a very enjoyable holiday. This is a family owned hotel and the owner paid particular attention to detail with the place being well maintained. The food was mostly Italian with large starters and medium size main course which was good and well presented. We found this hotel to be in an excellent location in a quiet area of the town and approxmately a 15 minute walk from the main square in Riva. We travelled by bus around the lake wondering where we would stay if we were to return, but for us we liked Riva the best. (maybe Malcesine would be our second choice)
We booked our package holiday with Crystal holidays travelling form Belfast. Just before our departure we received an email saying our return flight was change to 6hrs earlier. We would NOT recommend using Crystal for your travel.

we have just returned from a two week holiday my husbands only second time flying after twenty years ( hopefully he will fly again ).this hotel was faultless from the moment we arrived and until we departed.All the staff made us really welcome and nothing is to much trouble for them they also wished us well when we left and i do hope we will return there one day.This hotel is small and friendly which we feel is more welcoming than the larger ones that you can often feel just a number.So a big Thank You for a wonderful time.

We've just returned from a great holiday in Riva and really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Riviera. Staff are welcoming and friendly and quite helpful. Serving staff are also helpful and friendly. Rooms are fine, but pillows were a little hard for me and the air-con, once we got it working, noisy at night. Hotel has a great location being only 20 min walk from central Riva itself. Great views of lake and surrounding mountains. We are definitely going back!!

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room facing the lake if you want good views, but one away from the lake if you...

Have just returned home from a fabulous week staying at Hotel Riviera. The hotel was faultless and the staff could not be more helpful or friendly. Evening meal was great and the owner even got up at 5.30 am to see us off on our last day with a breakfast packed up for us! The location is just right - lovely stroll along the waterfront into Riva or the other way to Torbole and the views from our room overlooking the lake were amazing. I cannot wait to return. Even our teenage son enjoyed the whole holiday with loads to do on and around the lake.

Room Tip: Rooms on either side have great views - lake one way or mountains the other way!

Couldn't be faulted.
Had a front room with balcony and view over Lake Garda. The accommodation was modern and clean. The staff were very welcoming but not in any way intrusive. Breakfast had a good choice of hot and cold fare. Evening meal was four course and excellent every night. If I'd stayed longer I'd have had to drop a course or two, I must have put on pound or two. Wine and drinks were reasonable priced. Pool area well appointed and very clean.
