Had one end of a, well, cabin and it was quite spacious and close to the beach. The location of the area was good, close enough Castiglione Della Pescaia. It was also closed area, so quite good for kids, if you have any.

Food was good and service excellent in all the restaurants. The minigolf on the other side of the road was terrible, do not spend your moneys there. There were laundry machine at the area, if you need one.

We were not so lucky with the weather, on the other hand we experienced a positive stay at Riva del Sole with good service and great food. The resort is quite big and, although it seemed full, was never crowded.

Hallo
I've had a good time, Riva del sole.
Very nice and quiet
Here are some suggestions to improve
1.three or four options on the cheap lunch
2nd better cooperation with flight
To reduce the transfer cost
Or why not charter a private flight from Arlanda with transfer
a few times during the year
3.offer bus trips to a greater extent
Look at the bus company Ölvemarks in Sweden

Mvh Kenneth

This is a little village where one can find everything, from supermarket to pharmacy to multiple bars and two very good restaurants. For families with children this is the perfect location, as the hotel has a baby swimming pool, a playground and special children menu which my son enjoyed every evening. It was funny to see the amount of buggies parked at the corridor of the hotel. The hotel was built by the Swedish in the 60's as a resort for Swedish people lookign to recover from accidents etc. They would arrive by plane to the nearby Castiglione and go to the hotel. The beach of the hotel is also very good and very very undeep, so perfect for children. One word about the spa and the restaurant. The staff at both locations is just amazing. The guys preparing the pizzas and the fried food in the restaurant are very friendly, and gave my son a free portion of french fries every time we would go see how they bake the pizzas. The spa is also very good and has everything one could desire. One special word for Roberta who revived my very painful back in no time with her magic hands! She is a treasure. Also the cleaning staff were very good and efficient, making sure our room was getting cleaned while we were with our child out for breakfast, as it was important to us that we get back and find the room ready to put him to bed if necessary. I must say that the friednliness of the cleanining staff was exceptional and much more than the reception. Languages spoken are Italian and German primarily.

Room Tip: We had a standard room which was very good with access to the garden, which was important for our li...

I have been visiting Riva with my wife for more than 10 years, attracted by the facility, the beach and the hospitality. We are one of many returning year after year.

Riva has four stars, but is getting closer to 5 star.

Some of the rooms are now upgraded to superior rooms. The location of the superior rooms is still not great, over the bar, but new superior rooms are likely to be added before next years season.

Investments in the spa and the pool environment in recent years have added significant value.

For me and my wife, the beach is still the hotel's number 1 attraction. And no other hotel I have visited has offered a similar breakfast. And staff is just great..

Lunch at the "pizza bar" is good value. Service top.

Room Tip: We never stay on ground floor -and never toward the road to the beach.

Beautiful located at the boarder of the Mediterranean. Good service in a smooth, luxurious hotel built in the 1960s. Great breakfast and dinner buffet and a well placed beach bar. Just a bus ride or a short walk to the old town Castiglione della Pescaia.

We stayed at the hotel for a fortnight in August 2013 and had a marvellous time. The room was nice and clean, the service excellent and the food .... delicious! The resort is nicely situated in the pine wood just by the sea and offers a lot of activities. It is clean and tidy and feels very safe.
It is also easy to make trips to other cities, as several buses stops just outside the resort. Bikes can be rented as well. I do hope this was not the last time we stayed at Riva del Sole Resort & Spa!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have nice terraces.
