4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Everything was so much better than I expected & we both had a very relaxing holiday which was exactly what we needed. I hope that the ' upgrade' in a couple of months does not take away from the hotel's current, relaxed and charming 'ambiance' . All staff were both polite & professional at all times [ & thankyou Cecile!... More

For the money, I'd say perfect. However a 4 star hotel it js not. There is a plaque for award winners in 2005 and maybe this was their hay day. The food is ok...the rooms are cleaned to a good standard, the pool is ok. The beach is fantastic for snorkelling - in just one meter depth you can see... More

The Riviera Resort, Malta is a lovely hotel the staff work tirelessly to clean and help. The food is good and plentiful with their own brand of drinks and refreshing cocktails. Marfa Bay, we think is the best location on the Island. We visited most of the other resorts and this one is hard to beat as it is very... More

Good destination if you plan a relaxing sea-side vacation - sunny quiet place, close beaches, great bay and sea views, exciting snorkeling for young siblings, boat renting and water sports at hand. Warm and welcoming hotel staff proving all the help you might need. Cleaning every day, smiling desk receptionists, cheerful bartenders. Rooms are big with a bit old furnishing... More

Had a week here with husband and teenage daughter and was pleasantly surprised after reading some previous reviews. Staff could not have been more pleasant, always had a smile and time for you. Our room was changed to a sea view, food was faultless, great choice, amazing Chinese. Hope that the refurb does not lose the wonderful character of this... More

Stayed at this hotel with my husband and daughter and loved it. If you are looking for night life, bars and shops then this is not for you. This holiday is for couples who want to relax in a hotel that offers excellent service from their staff. The staff work very hard and are very friendly. The receptionist who booked... More

Just got back from this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel it felt good. Although we checked in, our room wasn't ready for a couple of hours. That wasn't a problem as the receptionist said we can use the facilities. So we headed straight to the bar 😆 First impression of the hotel was good, it was clean, friendly... More
