“Even better this year !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Loved this little hotel last year so much, back here again ! There have been a few small but significant improvements, and enjoying sharing the experience with my son and his partner. Staff made us very welcome as returning guests , nothing too much trouble. Breakfast is improved with buffet of hot and cold dishes daily. Fresh exotic fruit platter delicious ! Tokens for a welcome drink a very nice gesture, had a great Margarita in the bar . Overall everything's perfect except the weather but here's hoping for some sunshine .

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor overlooking pool

This is absolutely 5 stars. The staff is wonderful. Everything they could do to simplify my trip, they did....looking things up on the internet, giving excellent recommendations that were authentic! Great location.

When I make it back to Playa. I will stay here!

Riviera Del Sol was a lovely place and a joy to wake up and go back too!
The staff where amazing and makes this place hold the 5 stars I have given it... Great location but I would not recommend Mamita's beach club as the staff there are extremely rude even though I have been visiting them for years and have always tipped well? The boutique hotel felt like my home and the staff felt like family... Thank you Riviera Del Sol you made are holiday so WONDERFUL!!!

Me and my friend spent there 3 nights.The place is located about 7 minutes walking from all the night clubs. The staff is very nice. we paid 92 USD including breakfast (basic). It is not on the beach but it's very near - 3 minutes walking.

Room Tip: The rooms are quite the same..

We traveled to Mexico ,as a family, for our son's wedding .
The great location,together with , the big rooms,picturesque pool area and convenience to beach, restaurants and shops made our stay most enjoyable.
The major point for us was the professionalism and friendliness of the "Front of House Staff"
They were amazing.
We would recommend Hotel Riviera Del Sol , Playa DelCarmen ,without reservation.
We had a ball and hope to go back some time.

We just returned from Mexico and stayed here for 3 nights as part of our trip. We originally planned on staying two nights but decided to stay a third. The hotel's strength is it's staff. They are very helpful, pleasant, and hospitable. This is a very nice small hotel, which we prefer to the larger hotels. The rooms are clean and our bed was comfortable. Our room was quiet with no noticeable outside noise. They were no english language television stations available, but that was fine with us. The internet worked well in our room. The grounds, while small and nice and comfortable. The breakfast was simple but excellent. (We like simple breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and juices).

We did not have hot water for our shower our first day. Normally this would be a reason to leave, but we stayed and had no problem after the first day. I think the problem was that our room was far from the water heater and there was alot of use that morning.

The hotel in not located in the busiest part of town, which is nice, it does take 15 +/- minutes to walk to the center of town to the bus station, restaurants, etc.

We were able to use Mamita's beach club which is a 5 minute walk and has a nice beach. We went on a Sunday and had trouble finding chairs with an umbrella as it was very busy. Menu prices were high, when buying food and drinks.

If you do not want to pay alot of money for a hotel on the beach, this place was great.

Coozy hotel with nice pool area, great location close to the beach and the main street with shops and restaurants. Nice big rooms, good breakfast, free wifi and beach towels, friendly staff and welcome drinks are offered upon arrival.

Only little thing was that the pool area only had like 4 sun beds and unfortunately there were a family that occupied all of them for 2 days so there was no option for us to stay by the pool unless you only wanted to swim in the pool. But that is the only thing I can think about. Other than that it was great!
