The bathroom was a generous space as was the bedroom. The bar & restaurant were sufficient to our needs. The pool indoor & outdoor looked nice although being late... More

We booked here for 5 nights. The first room had carpet that smelt strongly of urine. We complained the next day and was moved a few rooms down. Here the mattress was uncomfortable, bed linen smelly, the windows (old crittal windows that unfortunately can't be replaced as double glazed units wouldn't fit) we couldn't open the main window to let...

Asked to change rooms and didn't mind paying for upgrade, took us to another room. At first it looked ok after a few minutes and... More

Really nice hotel. Just a couple of negative comments. View was someone else's window so couldn't open the curtains and could have done with 2 key cards as when my daughter went out I was left in darkness. Positive comments nice comfortable room with very comfortable beds. Had the best night sleep

As soon as we arrived at the Riviera; both myself and my wife said the same thing: ''I don't want to stay here''. Looking closely at the photographs of the building you will see it is not a hotel in the sense you might expect but it is apparantly a former holiday camp made up of a complex of chalets... More
