If you really must stay in Ouistreham, the choice isn't great. I can't comment on Riva Bella as a hotel nor even as a place to dine. My experience is purely as someone who wanted to meet some friends off the ferry for breakfast. Was it good? Yes, it was excellent and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a... More

Best things first: The spa and the staff are really nice, the hotel is very clean and the beds very comfortable. But that's about it. No idea how they got planning permission to build such an ugly building right on the beach, surrounded by an ugly fence. It wouldn't be out of place in an industrial area. Our room was... More

This hotel is a good base for a tour to the Normandy D Day beaches, being adjacent to Sword beach and the ferry port. Excellent staff, friendly and courteous, nice rooms and decent food. Being a spa, there are many people wandering around in towel dressing gowns which is a bit disconcerting to begin with!! A calm oasis and a... More

A modern hotel linked to a spa. We only used it as a base to go and see Pegasus bridge before getting the ferry home so did not use the spa. Details of how to find the hotel were not good. Typical modern hotel next to the sea. Most residents seem to be there for the spa. Restaurant good and... More

We stayed in this hotel because it is located in front of the beach, has a very nice indoor swimming pool with spa-facilities. In our booking breakfast was not included. We did not try the hotel's restaurant because prices are above average for the area. The whole hotel looks very clean and the staff is helpful. Free parking is provided... More

Ok I'll be honest, we stayed for one night before a ferry trip, so it would be unfair to offer too much criticism. So here's some facts. On arrival the reception staff were absolutely brilliant, very friendly accommodating and looked after our bikes etc. Said I could pay in euro on leaving, said they could get us in restaurant etc...

We stayed at the Riva Bella before Christmas and we liked it a lot. Our room was rather small but the access to the spa all day long made up for it. The staff at the pool were very friendly and helpful. We liked the location as you can walk along the beach; go to the village center very easily.... More

A very pleasant hotel in an excellent location close to the beach and the Porstmouth-Caen car ferry terminal. Spa was good but very busy and room nice and quiet even though it was next to reception. Only downside was lack of variety on the menu in restaurant so you may want to eat out if you are either a vegatarian... More
