“Unforgettable Weekend in Riviera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the Riviera Apartments in Apartment 5 for 4 nights and upon entry it was breath taking. The view, the apartment, the rooms, the bathrooms, the balconies all simply wonderful. Apartment faces manly beach, simply awesome. The parking downstairs is tight so if you have a big 4wd then be careful. I hired a Nissan Xtrail & that fit fine. The main bedroom is fit for a prince or princess but the only complaint would be the size of the bed. It's like parking a mini in a garage that can fit 2 cars. Other then that its PERFECT!! Will definitely stay again & again ...

Returned to Bella Vista in June 2013 and stayed in a side, top floor penthouse. Three Bedrooms, three bathrooms and the extra loo all made our stay very comfortable. Loads of space, plus you have the bath tubs for a good soak. Found the staff very helpful and friendly. Walking distance to the Manly Corso and all the pubs and restaurants that are nearby. Great location on the beachfront opposite North Steyne Surf Club.

This is quite a large organisation, they manage a few apartments in Manly ranging from 1 bedroom up to 3 bedrooms. The majority of their apartments are found along North Steyne Manly, which is the main road along the esplanade of Manly Beach. These apartments are; Atlantis, Bella Vista, Pine Court, Mystique, Riveria and the one we stayed in Upper Greycliff Apartments. I could only find one review on this apartment, and in some respects on reflection, find this review misinformed. It is not in a great location, and I would recommend any tourist to have their own transport.
While it is at the end of Manly Beach, being Queenscliff, it requires a lot of walking and climbing of stairs, both from the road - about 4 flights up to the apartment complex, then another 4 flights of stairs up to our apartment. If you catch the ferry here, with your luggage and then stop by to do some shopping, it is about a 2.2km walk to this complex. Public transport is not very good, as we found, so had to hire a car from nearby Brookvale, which required a taxi to get to.
The apartment has had some modernisation done in the kitchen, but the bathroom and other facilities are basic. Television is not digital, but was on the old analogue receiver, so we did not have access to many TV stations in Sydney, especially the sports.
The bathroom consists of bath, and shower above this, which may not suit some people with disabilities. The saving grace to this apartment was a coffee shop next 'Café Splat' which served great breakfast and coffee, and the amazing views over Manly Beach. Constant traffic noise into Manly from Queenscliff could be a turnoff, but thankfully we were on the fourth floor so not too bad. I would recommend for tourists to stay along the esplanade and just be handy to all the shops and restaurants and give this area a miss.

Room Tip: Look up the area on Google, it is at Upper Greycliff Street, Queenscliff

I recently had a girls weekend away here. We stayed in a 3 bedroom ocean view apartment at bella vista. Views and facilities were amazing. Beautiful balcony with table and chairs to enjoy views. Best equipped kitchen I have ever had in a holiday apartment. Bosch appliances and plenty of platters for entertaining.
Short walk to corso and plenty of nice restaurants. Beach is just across the road. Enjoyed watching the surfers. Even saw Tony Abbott having a surf!
We each had a spacious bedroom. 2 bathrooms and extra toilet. Only soap provided so remember to take own toiletries. I took my own hair dryer but they were available if you asked.
Feedback from all girls was 10/10. We had a memorable weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for beach facing apartments and ring to check your booking before you stay. Ask for room on lev...

We have just returned from a great week stay at the Atlantis Apartments [98 North Steyne - across the road from the North Steyne Surf Club].
The three bedroom apartment was beautifully presented. Over $15000 worth of Miele appliances, plus granite kitchen, marble bathrooms etc.
And the position - across the road from the beach & far away from the Corso not to be disturbed by noise.
Double lockup garage.
And the air conditioning worked a treat during the record heat wave.
Friends were staying next door at Bella Vista & further down at Ocean Royale, and both said ours was the best unit.
A few negatives:
Limited cutlery meant the dishwasher was on after each meal
Bed linen was a synthetic mix - not good quality
No vacuum - carpet was white
Second TV had problem with aerial - spoke to Management but no action during our stay

Room Tip: Higher floors. Apartment 3 on 1st floor had good view, but up higher would be better. Eight apartmen...

I had originally booked a two bedroom apartment for four people and was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a three bedroom unit on the ground floor at the front of the building with views up and down Manly Beach. The apartment had a very large loungeroom/dining area and a huge private entertainment area at the front of the apartment which worked out perfectly as we entertained family who reside close by for an early Chritsmas celebration as we could not celebrate it together on Christmas Day due to different circumstances. The unit was very clean and the front staff were very friendly. The only down was at night you could not sleep with the sliding doors open due to the street noise and the garbage trucks picking up garbage from other unit blocks. However with the doors closed and airconditioning and fans on it was ok. It is not cheap but you have to expect that with its postion straight across from the beach and walking distance to the Corso and restaurants. We would stay there again.
