Was taken to a back room, behind what appeared to be an old storage room. Although the room was clean, the smell of both the room and blankets caused for lack in sleep. However, the pool appears clean and the complimentary breakfast is tasty - including coffee.

We just ended up in Rivasa Resort again in March 2016. To be honest it was a horrible decision. There were power cuts, bed bugs, smelly rooms and on top of everything, staff was not courteous enough. The complimentary breakfast had very less choices. Might be mine last visit in Rivasa ever!!

Good and budget hotel with small swimming pool. Staff's are very co-operative. They need to do some maintenance of room. Rooms were very small but we managed. Near to calanguate beach, 10 min walking distance from calanguate beach. Breakfast was good and unlimited. Good for family. One can easily access to market and restaurants.

We checked in Rivasa in February 2016. I think this is the best resort in budget. We got the room onnly inRs.750 per night as we got it in deal. Breakfast was delicious and best thing is its near to calguate beach and easy public transport available near the resort.
