We have stay at the hotel in July 2016 for a family vacation. The hotel facilities was quite good although the room we have staying was basic. The food was avarage even below that in some of the days. There is not much to do outside of the hotel a transportaion is needed for day tours (driver recommandation - Davide... More

We were sold a deal (by Eshet Tours) promoting the Riva Marina as an all included vacation, the truth was very different. Everything besides the meals and afternoon pizza costs extra, that means every-thing. Pool towels are 5€ and another 15€ deposit each; compulsory pool hats are 3.5€; tennis courts are free but equipment is 10€, table tennis is 5€;... More

Dear B B, we thank you for choosing Riva Marina Resort for your stay. We can assure you that no Tour operator sells Riva Marina Resort as an All Inclusive vacation because we sell the Riva Marina Special Full Board with buffet meals and typical Puglian dishes, but also national and international cuisine, with water and wine included (on draught)...

Visited the hotel and area after recommendation from a close friend who has family originally from the area. The hotel was chosen from a list of many on a UK booking website. Location is great and easily reached by Bari or Brindisi airports (Google map location is not quite right so check carefully). The beach is fab and well suited... More

We stayed at this resort in July 2016 and we loved every day of our holiday. The parking place was well organized and the check-in was fast, we received the keys of our room in less then 1/2 hour from our arrival at 1 PM. The staff was really helpful, everybody looked working hard to keep tourists happy, especially the... More

The resort was beautiful but the restaurant was basic. Food was below standard for a 4 star resort. Our opinion was taken on board by the manager and more staff were on duty during our stay with tablecloths put on our tables, plus jugs of drink for our guests. Yet the quality of the buffet menu was not what we... More

We were part of a wedding party of around 100 and it was slightly pre-season but my view is that a place is either open or closed. The Riva Marina is a very nicely laid out large resort but whilst the staff are very pleasant there were few things to do particularly if the weather is bad which it was... More

We came to this resort as part of an organised trip, expecting a high class, relaxing and quality place. Instead, we were exposed to the ugly side of the local tourist business. This resort is built solely on looks instead of actual quality of service, the English speaking level of its employees is simply unacceptable, with all of the staff... More

After a very negative experience in a nearby 4-star hotel in the Ostuni area of Puglia, we discovered this true gem near Ostuni, adjacent to the beach. RMR is a 4 year old villagio resort with two story villas and a central client area including a large and well prepared buffet room, entertainment center, pool and spa area, wellness center,...

The Resort is only 10-15 minutes from Brindisi and Ostuni. Very near to Fasano Zoo and Alberobello. The place itself is gorgeous! The accomodation is organized in hotel rooms (with air conditioning) but each room has a litthe poarch and chairs and tables so it looks like you have a little house for the holiday. There is a huge swimming... More
