The Riviera is an excellent Hotel. Bedrooms and all public areas are immaculately clean. The staff from management to chabermaids, bars and restaurent are all friendly and well disposed to the British. The reception staff were especially accommodating and helpful.
For the kids there was always someone from the hotel to play with and entertain them in the pool area.
on the down side, and this is not particular to the Riviera but probably to all such resort hotels catering for so many people, the restaurant whilst always having a good choice and range of foods to suit most europeans the quality was not what it might have been. Even things like the excellent home made soups were spoilt by being luke warm. Luke warm is a fair description of most of the food except for anything from the live cooking station which I think was always a pasta meal.
By far the majority of the guests were German but fortunately not the sun bed grabbing variety. Queing however is still a concept that elludes them.
Marfa bay is well off the beaten track with the only other hotel being the Ramla Bay across on the other side of the lagoon that serves as a small harbour. There are NO other bars or restaurants A life saver was a local man who had set up camp with his mobile emporium on the street outside the hotel. He sells everything imaginable, even cooked breakfasts. if he doesn't have something he will, if possible, get it for you.
Across the bay are the Blue Lagoon boat tour people. their speedboat tour of comino and the blue lagoon is both exillerating and informative and worth every penny. Not to be missed.
