I just got back from a girls' weekend at the Riviera, and it was a lot of fun! Riviera was apparently redecorated just a few years ago, and the look is funky but still relaxed. The suite rooms are spacious with private balconies.
Pool on site is small and pretty empty on Friday. If you want to go on Saturday or Sunday, show up early to get a spot. The pool bar serves up a decent menu of food. Drinks are average, but about what you would expect for pool bar fare.
The on-site restaurant was very nice for dinner. The setting is romantic with live performers, fire pits, and lanterns hanging from the trees.
The Spa Terre on site was one of the better ones that I've been to - we did the spa on Friday and it was pretty much empty, and it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Their summer special prices for treatments are reasonable as well.
The reason that I rated Riviera at 4 stars is that it seems to have some issues with room cleanliness. When checking into our suite, the first one smelled like a recently used bathroom although visually it seemed to have been cleaned. We called the front desk and they were quick to get us a second room, which had a trail of stains on the bathroom floor. The hotel quickly sent a maid that cleaned up the bathroom floor and we kept the room.
