Just returned today from another perfect stay at Hotel Riviera. We last went October 2011 and as we felt it was 'Simply the Best' we decided to take our daughter, son-in-law and our twin grandaughters with us this time and we have had a great time. Our granddaughts who are 10 years old didn't want to come home and said they have had a fabulous holiday.I must say we did have the most perfect time together. There was never a dull moment, we laughed from morning until night and definitely wished we could have stayed another week.
The hotel has a really good atmosphere, the entertainment is second to none, the team work so hard to make everyones' stay a great one and by that I mean children, adults and senior citizens, they cater for all. During the day there is plenty of laughter around the pool, when they get as many guests involved in activities eg Bowls, Darts, Water Polo, Table Tennis, Darts and more. Then the evenings are filled with various shows, all of which are excellent.
The hotel is very clean, in fact, I would say 'spotless' the maids upkeep the rooms very well and the other parts of the hotel are cleaned immaculately by other members of staff. They are all very pleasant and never pass you with out saying hello.
As for the catering side of things, I don't think there is anything bad I can say. The main restaurant is where we have eaten most of the time and have never been disappointed with the variety of food to choose from. If anybody can say the food is awful I would have to say they must be blind as besides being delicious, there is absolutely plenty of different dishes to choose from.
Walking around the hotel I was interested to hear guests talking to other guests saying how many times they have returned to the hotel, some as many as 7 and 8 times. In fact there is one couple who have spent 3 months at a time there and who are now staying 6 months, so this says it for itself about the hotel.
If you like to spend your days at the beach you will adore this one!
I do hope therefore if any of you are deciding to go to Tunisia for a holiday, take my advice and book the Hotel Riviera, you won't be disappointed and as I said last year it's 'Simply the Best'!!!!!
This time we had Rooms 421 and 423 which were on the top floor with a pool and sea view.
