“Good hotel & location - book a sea view”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Riviera good location easy to get to local sites walking or by bus. Close to many restaurants & bars.
Food excellent good choice & always hot. Definitely recommend a superior room with sea view as other rooms can have a poor outlook.
Vouchers given for a welcome cocktail & 13 free teas / coffee in the bar (per couple) nice touch!
Only gripe is having to pay for pool towels & umbrellas which I have never experienced at a hotel before but, believe this is typical of the other spa hotels in the area.
Would recommend as a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Recommend a superior sea view as a good choice!

Having just come back from Slovenia I have to say that the Hotel Riviera is excellent. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms very good with a shower that mists you. We had a balcony that could be used from first thing in the morning until late afternoon. The restaurant provided superb meals on a buffet style with plenty of choice for vegetarians, you had your own table for evening meals with a choice of sit anywhere for breakfast. The waiting staff were all very friendly, couldn't do enough for you inasmuch as we were moved to a table by the window without our requesting it (they had noticed that we sat by the window every breakfast). The porters were also very friendly and on the ball for moving luggage. The hotel had 3 indoor swimming pools with bubbles and one outside and a large sunbathing area. it also had a spa facilities for various treatments. It is located on the seafront with bus stops just outside. I can highly recommend it and Slovenia.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony on an upper floor as the view is better.

To enjoy this hotel you really need to pay extra for a balcony & sea view, otherwise very average. The room was a reasonable size & everything was clean & the buffet breakfast & evening meal freshly cooked & well presented with a great choice. Not impressed however by school trip approach to seating us all at long tables in the dining room (we were on a tour), spoilt our dining experience. Not a lot to do in Portoroz & three nights were long enough.

Room Tip: Need to have sea view & balcony.

The hotel has an excellent location with first class view of the sea.
One major plus was the quality, variety and amount of food. For example at breakfast there were eggs being fried on the spot whilst at the same time a good range of cold meats etc. There was therefore a choice for either a good continental breakfast or a hot breakfast. The evening meal was again good.
Another major plus were the warm, fairly large heated pools with the option of an outside area if wanted. Note a charge of 6E for hire of a robe.
We paid more of a sea view and whilst we got a very good view on the eighth floor it was noisy in the early morning due to street cleaning etc.
We would stay again.

Room Tip: Think hard before you choose a sea view room if you want to sleep in !

pros:
-rooms are nice and spacious, take the seaside view, its worth it
-clean rooms
-good breakfast
-very good wai thai center
-very good cleaning ladies
-very good barman
-very close to the walking paths which are excellent if you have small kids
-very nice playgrounds only 5 minutes away

cons (this is only written in hope that management takes it as a positive criticism):
- for a 4 star hotel would expect a richer variety of fish and meat at the dinner
- they should take more care at refilling the cheese & ham section; if you don't mention it is hardly a chance they refill after 9am (breafast is until 10am)
- only 12 hours per day of free internet (4 star hotel) - for me not acceptable in 2013 (in 1998 yes but not today)
- free fitness only from 8am - 1pm (4 star hotel) you have to pay in the afternoon
- you have to pay for towels at the pool (4 star hotel) and the usage of bathrobe
- air temperature in the pool area definitely to low for children (it is not 30 degrees Celsius; maybe on paper but not in reality)
- free coupons only available at the time you are very likely not to use them
- bar in the lobby works from 9am...is hard to get a coffe from 7-9am.
- some staff in the restaurant appear to be tired already and it was the 1st day of hotel opening

Overall:
would rather pay a little more then to get a feeling that you are being ripped off for every little thing you do accept sleeping and eating.

Room Tip: take the sunny side

The Hotel was quite average to be honest. Nothing special and not entirely convinced that it deserves the 4 stars. The rooms are very small and we didn't request a sea view but I was surprised that we only had a wall of the apartment block across the road as a view. The hotel seemed empty. The staff were very helpful and made our two single beds into a double as soon as we asked them to.
Breakfast was great, decent coffee which is always a bonus.
