We've been there more than once. It is a nice stay and very central.. you can walk where ever you want to be - it is in close distance of lots of restaurants, Mojo market, a shopping mall, lot of other shops and you can go for a nice brisk walk on the promenade

We had a nice stay at the hotel.. the room was really nice… only downside is we were next to the reception and they are Extremely noisy I would not book here again as the noise levels are high.. the other negative is they only cleaned the room once so not really a holiday when u have to clean your own room!!$

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Riviera and whilst we were there this time we booked again for next year. The location is fantastic, straight across the road from the sea, excellent views, we watched the whales every morning whilst we ate our breakfast. We stayed in E1 a 2 bedroomed apartment, the bathroom is quite small but you don't need to spend too much time in there, the other bedrooms were a great size, loads of cupboard space, same with the kitchen. We had an issue with the drains and the maintenance man came straight away to have a look, he didn't fix it but I think it is a general problem and maybe can't be solved. The staff are what make the resort really special, all of them are so happy and friendly, especially Faheem and Elizabeth on reception and Yolanda, our housekeeper. Can't wait to go back next year

Really enjoyed our stay at Sea Point Riviera. The staff were lovely and welcoming. We were greeted in a warm and friendly way everyday. Our room was well appointed but I am not a fan of an open bathroom - I would prefer more privacy. Also, there was no option of twin beds (sharing with my daughter). It was also a shame that the coffee shop wasn’t open yet but we would definitely book a stay again. Thank you for your lovely service.

The first thing you notice about the Riviera Suites is the helpfulness of the reception staff and this continues for the duration of your stay. For example, when the hire company omitted to collect the hire car on time, the reception staff continued to remind them on the telephone. The location was as good as it gets in Sea Point. The room was fine other than a problem with the cold/hot water mix for the shower. It was difficult getting cold water through and the maintenance engineer advised that a new part needed to be ordered. This was the only downside requiring careful setting of the shower mix to be able to take a shower. We have stayed at the Riviera Apartments twice before without any problems, so we would return again.

Riveira Suites are an honest proposition in a dynamic market. Nicely positioned for walkabouts along the broadwalk , close enought to the V & A and City bowl. A friendly professional atmosphere and comfortable. Television in bedroom and lounge - but quality of signal needs to be addressed.

Self catering units on the popular Beach Road in Sea Point. Position is within easy walk of many shops and restaurants. Also an easy drive to many popular tourist attractions. Beautiful walks along the shoreline on the prominade and a large tidal pool is nearby too. The resort also has bicycles on site for hire. V&A is within easy reach too.

Although this is a small hotel the staff and facilities are fantastic, not overly expensive and decorated to a very high standard. Hotel has a small pool to cool off in. Right on the sea front and opposite the hotel is a huge outside swimming pool.
