“2 more great stays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

I’ve been lucky enough to have two more stays at Riviera this year. My 6th visit was for a long weekend in February, and just returned from my 7th visit, a 5 night break over the Easter weekend.

My previous reviews all still stand and both of these recent stays went without a single hitch, and I’m very grateful to the hotel for their continued hard work and high standards. It is great to be recognised as repeat guests.

If you’re thinking of booking Riviera, here’s some things to bear in mind. The pool is small and is overshadowed by the neighbouring hotels. In April, each sunbed probably got around 6 hours in the sun, so sun-worshippers may need to move around to get a couple of extra hours. If the pool and sunbathing are your highest priorities, this might not be the right hotel for you. But, the sunbeds are good and it’s a nice area to relax.

Food – I think the food is of a very good standard. It’s a small hotel, so choice isn’t wide, but it’s high quality and refreshed regularly. You’ll find some nice fish, beef, lamb dishes, plus with veg, rice, pasta. Plus cold meats, cheese, fruit, different soups and fantastic sweets. Breakfast has hot and cold buffets. You will not find chicken nuggets, chips, pizza, burgers served at every meal, so if you’re looking for bucket loads of ‘English’ food, this probably isn’t the place for you. The dining room is well run by some lovely staff. I just wish that the hotel would enforce its dress code for guests in the dining room.

Entertainment – the new Music Lounge has made a big different to what’s on offer in the hotel. The Lounge is very smart and comfortable. The singers are all really good, but there’s not really anything particularly different than you get in other bars in town. You’ve also got nightly bingo. If you want variety, you’ll need to venture out.

The hotel is generally very quiet; it’s not the place for big groups who want to make a noise, so you’ll get a good nights sleep, despite being on the edge of the nightlife. You’ll also feel very safe here – only guests with their room keys can use the lifts and, at night, the gate is locked so you’ll have to buzz the night receptionist to get back in.

I can’t wait to get back to Riviera and Benidorm, both of which are starting to feel like a second home. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Our second visit to this excellent hotel , super location with great rooms well furnished and kept spotlessly clean , the reception staff handled our request for a double bed without any trouble . The food is very good one of the best places we have eaten at in a hotel in benidorm great breakfasts with all you need from cereals to a full English , the evening meal again of a high standard with a good selection even for any of the fussiest eaters , think the price for a safe is a little high at 15 euros a week and the bar staff in the outside area could do with a little help in the evening - have a new area downstairs for evening acts - didn't go in to watch but the bar looks very comfortable
Overall 8.5/10 and we are looking forward to our new year break here

We have just returned from a weeks stay in the Riviera Beach Hotel in Benidorm. Had a great time hotel is excellent, staff great, food fantastic, nothing any bother at all. Great location and will definitely return to this hotel, in fact would not go anywhere else. The selection of food on offer was excellent and staff's attention to detail in restaurant was very good. 10 out of 10 all day long.

Room Tip: Choose a room with balcony, suites do not have balconies although they are lovely.

My husband and I went to the Riviera at the beginning of April for 10 days and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is as everyone says on Trip advisor modern, clean with lovely bedrooms etc. There is a really nice new music lounge with comfortable chairs and sofas and 3 good acts every night. The 2 girls who work in there were great. The food was really good we were full board and the choice was excellent. The deserts were some of the best deserts I have ever had abroad. There is a front terrace where you can get drinks, which are very reasonably priced. This area is very comfortable and is a great sun trap.
There are a few things I would like to mention though;

The pool does not get the sun till the afternoon.
Some of the main meals they have tend to be made from cheap cuts of meats.
It would be a good idea if there could be someone to introduce the acts during the evening. One night one of the acts didn’t turn up and everyone was sat not knowing what was happening

These are only small things and would not stop us going to this hotel again or giving it 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone going to Benidorm.
