We stayed in the Riveria Beachotel and we had a lovely time. The design and layout of the hotel is excellent. The food was delicious, with plenty of choice for every meal.We were spoilt with the fantastic array of desserts, They even had a whipped ice cream machine included. Drinks at the bar and at the dinner service were very reasonably priced. The staff were helpful and friendly.
Only one street away from the lively night spots and two streets fron the beach. Lots of shops nearby and a large market on sundays and wednesdays 200 yards away.The best hotel in Beindorm.

This hotel is beautiful and spotless, food was good, not exceptional, the rooms were a good size and clean towels everyday. The pool is very small and in the shade for most of the day. The bar seating area at the front of the hotel is lovely and comfortable and the prices are reasonable too. The reception staff are very helpful and will offer every courtesy.. Overall this is the place to stay if your going to Benidorm. Benidorm is a different story very old in places and very rough and rowdy at night, cheap food and drink

Its easy to see why the riviera is NO 1 HOTEL in Benidorm ,it certainly is this & more!Myself and my partner had the erge to go to Benidorm,so i logged on to Trip Adviser & got up 10 best hotels in Benidorm,with fingers crossed...RIVIERA is a small hotel in comparison to the "sky scrapers"that seem to be the norm there.WOW when we pulled up the sheer quality outside,then inside,we just knew our week was going to be perfect.Ihad booked full board & i can only praise the restaurant of its excellence on quality & presentation,it trully is outstanding,so much so that we ate every meal there,so much choice for everyone...The clenliness here is second to none,staff lovely and friendly,rooms minimalistic but in a tastefull way,beds so comfatable with memory foam matress,showers a dream ...all in all seriously you would not go wrong to book this hotel,its all & so much more.

Right from checking in to checking out everything about this hotel was brilliant. We arrived at 2pm and was met by a friendly receptionist who checked us in very promptly. She then informed us that as we were full board lunch was served until 3pm so we went to our rooms and dropped our luggage off and then headed downstairs to lunch. We were greeted by Antonio the restaurant manager who explained to us about times for meals and saw us to a table and asked us what we wanted to drink. he was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The choice at all mealtimes were brilliant, breakfast choice was anything from cereals and fruit to hot breakfast such as bacon, eggs, beans etc. Everything was self service and lots of choice. Lunch and dinner comprised of salad choices and lots of hot food to choose from. Then we come on to desserts well they are to die for from cakes to fruit and the ice cream machine was a bonus!!!!! Carmen and Mohammed also worked in the restaurant and they were fantastic and worked really hard however always smiling and so friendly. Our rooms were on the 3rd floor and were lovely and clean. The beds were comfortable, bathroom had a lovely walk in shower and plenty of space around the sink for all your toiletries, hairdryer in the bathroom and a nice big mirror. Towels were changed every day and the maid cleaned our room daily to a high standard. Our balcony had a view overlooking nextdoor hotel pool and to the side of us we could see our pool. Can be a bit noisy at night if you leave the door open onto the balcony however we shut it and put the air con on and could not hear a thing so slept well every night. The bar and outside sun terrance was a great place to sit and people watch. Drinks were cheap costing from one euro a small beer to one euro 50 for a pint. Cocktails 5.50 euros but well worth it. Only one small downfall and that was that the bar downstairs wasnt open therefore no entertainment but people watching from the sun terrace was entertaining enough and plenty of nightlife if wanted it not far away. Would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to benidorm and is well worth the 4 stars.

If you want a funky looking fresh and clean hotel in the middle of Benidorm the Riviera is the place.

stayed at this hotel with Friends for 6 nights in early may,, its a lovely clean and very smart hotel,, the rooms are spacious and the bed very soft that's the good points,,so for the bad one, first there is no mirror on the bedroom walls ,the only mirror is 1 on the sliding wardrobe door, so you have to use the mirror in the bathroom to do your hair and makeup,,I went out and bought a free standing mirror to use on the dressing table so ladies take a mirror or you will have to stand in the bathroom to get ready,,the dressing table area as plugs for your own hairdryer there is a hairdryer in the bathroom but it is not very good as you have to hold the button in or it goes off, so take your own,,so that's the mirror situation sorted,,,the safe is in the wardrobe and you are given a card to put in and select a number of your chose,, then when its set that's it,, you just open it by putting your set number in,, so you have no card or keys to carry round with you,so that's great,,,,now make sure when you go out that the door is shut right if you just let it shut itself it will not close fully so always pull it shut tight,,it can be locked from inside on a night just turn the catch and you can easily see it lock so it is good security,,,,,so that's the room sorted now the restaurant first breakfast its served till 9am but don't be late down or you wont get anything.. its not that good.. there is cereals and 2 different juices... 3 different breads,,, you wont get a soft fried egg as they are always hard and the bacon and sausage is the same they seam to over cook everything , but if there is scrambled eggs on have that as it is not too bad,,we were on half board so we came back in at lunch time it is on 12 till 2 they have soup, salads, and hot food there were plenty to choose from but there again it was always over cooked so some things are that well done you just cant chew them,,its a great shame that a lovely hotel like this,,,, and it is a nice hotel,,, but the food lets it down badly,,we were never hungry and we always found something to eat, even thought we had to waste some food some days to find something suitable,, but the desserts were very good with fresh fruit always on and always a hot pudding with custard but the custard always runs out before the pudding and they never brought any more custard out ,,but there is a ice-cream machine so you can have that if there is no custard left,,,the staff are nice in ever part of the hotel very helpful and always speak as you walk by ,,,the bar area at the front of the hotel is great for a smoke or a drink very comfy chairs and waiter service too the prices are good too,,,the pool area is nice plenty of sunbed but the sun does not get to the pool till lunchtime so if you are a sun worshiper you will have to go elsewere,, but the bar area at the front of the hotel is a sun trap so you could sit there till dinnertime then go to the pool ,,,benidorm itself is a great place we have been a few time in different times of the year we always enjoy it but I don't no if I am getting old but I find it is gettin more and more rowdy there were lots of hens and stags and party groups I no there is always gangs of young ones but for early may there were more than usual ,,but its still a great place with plenty of acts to see....hope you have a great holiday and the riviera hotel is the place to stay,,,I will stay there again when we are next in beni........
