We have been coming to Riviera Beach Resort for
over 20 years. Obviously we like the place. The landscaping brings us, the new owners, John & Jenny, are the best. The whole Key, the gulf. It is, for us, fantastic. We leave our cold Canada
and enjoy for 2 months.
For us it is simply the best. Highly recommend it if you can get a spot.

Our friends steered us to exactly the place I was looking for but didn't believe still existed--a slice of "old Florida" charm nestled in between condos, mansions and sometime overly landscaped properties elsewhere on the key. The Riviera Beach Resort had luscious vegetation with overflowing bouganvilia (sp?), gardenias, palms and resident wildlife to boot (chameleons, snails, heron) to delight our children. The various sitting areas so carefully planned--by the pool, the waterfall, the table and chairs behind a screen of plants, were lovely in addition to each room's comfortable patio. The accomodations are comfortably modest but we enjoyed being outside as much as possible. The 1-minute walk to the beach is great. We'd love to come again!

From the moment we pulled into the parking lot we feel in love with all the flowers and lush green landscaping. Jenny and John love English roses. We had a wonderful vacation It was Mothers Day while we were there and Jenny and John got us all together for a cookout everyone made a dish .It was like family we were there for 7 days this year we will stay 10 days The apartments are so clean and beauifully decorated.
If heaven is like this, then i am going to pray more Linda

Where to begin!! We got a fabulous Christmas gift by discovering the wonderful , charming and well kept Riviera Beach Resort! Jenny welcomed us so warmly we even had a fresh tray of Christmas cookies in our room.
Jenny and John went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to accomodate us beyond our check out date when we decided we wanted to extend our stay. The Riviera is located on the Gulf side where the sunsets are gorgeous the water is a beautiful light blue. You can walk to no less than 4 excellent restaurants . A real bonus for us was the fact they are pet friendly our Bichon enjoyed Christmas with us!!
