The Rivera hotel is in need of updating. The pool has decking which is becoming loose in arrears. The staff in all arrears are faultless they work long hours but still are so polite and helpful. Our room, which we were told was the last one in the hotel when we booked, ground floor 175 facing the pool,ideal for 2... More

Just returned from a week stay at the Riviera with my partner Brian. We had never been to Malta before and so didn't know what to expect really. We were there attending a family wedding in another hotel. The hotel like other reviews say is pretty out the way which was perfect for us. Local buses are really frequent and... More

We are in room 175 ground floor which overlooks the pool area. Very convenient and considering the proximity to the pool the room is quiet. Compared to our previous holidays at four star hotels ...there is no comparison we have obviously enjoyed a higher standard.The room we were in was a reasonable size we were surprised to see single beds...
