My wife and I were in Beirut two weeks on business. Our time at the Riviera was a very good experience, although we didn't use the seaside facilities because of unseasonable winter weather. First, all the staff, from the front desk to the waiters were very cordial and attentive. Secondly, we had a partial ocean view from a corner room and couldn't keep our eyes off the sea and the corniche, the broad walkway that runs miles alone the coast.
Although locals took us to a number of their favorite restaurants around town, the food at the hotel, whether room service or in the dining room, was equal to any other place. We never grew tired of the abundant breakfast, as we could vary the meal dozens of ways from the buffet.
Sure, it's not really a five star hotel. There is no in-house fitness center. In a few insignificant ways the service failed, such as the morning paper being late, or laundry taking 24 hours instead of the promised 8. But those things can happen anywhere. We recommend the Riviera for the location, service and food.
