Loved Riveria Apartments! What an amazing find! Clean spacious and with great views with parking!
Kitchen well stocked with appliances, bedrooms well decorated, bathrooms modern and clean.
Service great from lady on phone- very friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough to be helpful for us!
Location of the apartments is brilliant, near the seafront and just at the back is Teignmouth town centre which was great to go shopping or a bite to eat.
Cannot leave this review without mentioning the incredibly friendly local population - if you're not from Devon like us, then you may be just as bowled over at how nice people are in this neck of the woods. If we asked people for directions they insisted on taking us to our location, people smile and say hello, lots of friendly old folk too, and lots of friendly dog-walkers too. Lovely holiday vibe to the area.
We were fortunate enough to make friends with others staying in Riveria Apartments and had a look around the other apartments, Penthouse One and Two seem to have the best views, and so does Penthouse Five.
We have only one other place to compare Riveria Apartments to and that is to the other five star seaview apartments we have stayed at in Scarborough called The Sands. I would say that although The Sands in Scarborough were closer to the beach, Riveria Apartments were half the cost we spent on the penthouse is Scarborough and Riveria Apartments had lots more space in the apartments! In addition the locals in Scarborough we found to be consistently unfriendly to the point of rude which had sadly impacted on our stay whereas I really cannot emphasise enough how lovely people in Teignmouth are!
There was only one thing that I thought Riveria could maybe improve that would have led to me give five stars overall and that was the checkout time. Checkout is at 10am here which we found a little early for us.
It's really nice when you're on holiday to be able to have a lie-in to remind yourself you're on holiday and not at work!
However in order to get up, shower, breakfast, tidy up and double check our packing, we did have to get up at 7.30am on our check out day, which was not nice time to have to wake up when you're on holiday!!!
So if there was one suggestion I would request for next time is if there is any chance to extend the check out from 10am to 11am then this place would be perfect! Current check in is 3pm, but I'm sure most people would be grateful for an extra hour in bed on checkout day even if this means check in now changes from 3pm to 4pm for the cleaners to be able to service all the apartments? Just a suggestion to make this place absolute perfection :)
Other than this very small negative, everything here is lovely and I would not hesitate to recommend others to stay (in fact I have already to other friends!!). One word of advice: check availability as much in advance as possible, as the apartments are understandable popular. I know that we will definitely be back :)
