Riviera Beachotel
Ranked #2 of 192 Hotels in Benidorm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Having stayed at and reviewed this hotel before, we knew the standards were good. Rooms still clean and maid service excellent. We had previously always had a shower over bath room but this time we had a walk in shower in our room and found this much better. A new music lounge has been added since we were last here and it really compliments the hotel with 3 acts at regular intervals from 9pm. Food still good and the staff in the restaurant are excellent.
The only gripe we had was with the dress code in the restaurant. When we have previously stayed here there has been a notice telling guests that a polo or shirt and long trousers had to be worn in the evening. This has now been removed and we seen people eating in the evening in shorts, sleeveless sports vest and flip flops. Ok breakfast and lunch maybe, but seeing someone reaching over to access food with hairy armpits is not nice to see.
Apart from this, it is still a great hotel to stay in with good sleep quality and spotless rooms, pool and public areas. We will still return to this hotel as it is central and has a pleasant atmosphere.

Having just returned from staying at this Hotel for 5 (May 5th -May10th) nights my wife and I would definately return.

Our previous experience of Benidorm was not good with the so called 4* being probably 2*

Very helpful and friendly staff on reception, rooms of a good size and very clean & modern, the entire hotel has a very high standard of cleanliness.

The restuarant very spacious and clean the quality of the food was of a high standard however we felt that there was a limited selection of type of main course, the salad selection was good it was a pity that the other choices available did not have the same variety however there was always something that we could have.

Your first instinct says, this is a David surrounded by Goliaths, but stands tall in every aspect.
The hotel is clean in all the inside and outside spaces, the rooms are spacious with a shower, bath and small fridge and balconies.
All the staff were helpful, courteous and cheerful.
It was a very enjoyable week and is well worth another visit soon.

Stayed here at the end of April, the majority of the facilities were very very good especially the check in which was dealt with quickly and very efficiently..
Just two gripes, you could not charge drinks etc. to your room and you had to pay 3 euros per night to activate the room safe.

Did not stay at this hotel but went for a drink on the terrace most late afternoons . Lovely sun trap where you could sit and people watch. Drinks were reasonable priced that is if you could get an order. You sat for ages waiting for a waiter and they lost many customers due to this . Tables sat dirty for ages before being cleaned. The toilets were inside the hotel were ultra modern . After several days of waiting for ages we decided to give up and try other places where service was faster.

I have just retunred back from a five day break at this hotel, it was truly amazing. I had booked through Alpharooms and got really good value for money. As soon as I arrived at the hotel, which was mid morning as I had a very early flight from Gatwick, my room was ready. The receptionist was friendly and very pleasant. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the towels and the sheets changed every day. The food was fantastic, lots of choice and something for everyone.
The staff are extremely friendly and cannot help enough.
I particularly liked the bar at the front of the hotel which is openair and a great place to sit and watch the world go by. I travelled alone and never felt uncomfortable once.
It is easy to see why this won the Tripadvisor award this year.
I cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Room 809 had sun from late afternoon until dusk perfect for sitting with a drink,

Stayed here for 2 nights and can't fault anything about the hotel. The staff were very helpful from the minute we got there and the hotel looked very modern and new. The hotel is in a great location if your looking for the beach and Benidorm nightlife. The rooms have everything you need for your stay including some Sky TV channels. The food is of great quality and there seems to be good selections to choose from every day. All in all this is a great hotel and would definitely stay here again if we come back to Benidorm.
