4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for two days in Riva in the mid of August. The room allotted was good and had a brilliant view (very few rooms have such view). Food was not the best: we took dinner once which was not good at all but, the complementary break fast was good on both days.. The resort overlooks the beach which is almost... More

The resort is decent, but the F&B service department is way too hopeless. My wife & I stayed there, they have a restaurant called "the waterpoint ", we gave a small order of paneer tikka masala as my wife is vegetarian. After a while the guy served us the food & the food served was chicken... to my surprise how... More

Beautiful view from the rooms. Clean rooms Private beach. Tasty food. Kayaking in a small river flowing through the resort. No water sports on the beach as it's a turtle hatching beach. Would recommend for a peaceful stay away from the normally crowded places in Goa.

Please do not book looking at website. The actual rooms are very different and dirty. We had booked coco cottages but they tried to fool us by giving normal rooms. The picture on website shows direct beach view and our rooms did not have any view. The aircondition also does not work

I am happy that I booked Riva. Few good things about the place is that it is right on the shore line (back side of beach leads to a small river, which leads to the sea). So there is no dearth of fresh air and great view. Nearly all rooms and/or cottages have a sea view and a nice sit... More

Stayed in Riva Beach Resort in mid August 2016. It's a nice resort with a beautiful view. Rooms need to be maintained a little bit more. The pool is well located and very well maintained. The lawns and the trees are nicely maintained. Breakfast buffet is lengthy and tasty. The staff is polite and courteous.
