“What we wanted”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

I came here for my stag do to catch the closing party atmosphere and whole of Ibiza was buzzing. This hotel was the perfect base for us 13 lads. Be aware that if booking in a big group. The reception can get very confused very quickly. Good points are the area has a strip of shops and bars 30 seconds away, which we used several times. Be sure to visit Peppers bar for a few beers, and kebabs over the road pretty good. We went all inclusive( defiantly recommend even just for the drinks till 11 each night) and food was better than expected. More than edible. Decent choice of drinks available on all inclusive. But if you want a big name or something more premium u will be charged. Only downside it is 2 drinks Max per visit to the bar which can be a pain in small cups, especially if u send some one to get a few drinks. To be fair the all inclusive saved us all so much money. We all came back with loads of Euros. We went for 3nights four days and spent an average of £150 each. That's including a present for the misses( we never went any of the superclubs but we didnt need to, we had an amazing time.
One point I have to mention is the security guy. BIG JOBSWORTH, even when walking past him silently he would shout at you to be quiet. We learnt our lesson first night, I advise just be quiet when coming in of the early hours and ignore him. Then u will be fine. Would not go there with my fiance or family, but groups of friends and stag/hen dos perfect base.

We stayed in the Riviera hotel in May 2013, the hotel was very clean and staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help.

As it's a 3 star hotel, you get what you pay for, food was edible but not up to scratch which was lucky as we only had bed and breakfast which was nice.

From what we could see, they had a bit of entertainment on but we didn't see/hear much of it going on.

The hotel is situated in the middle of the Bay close to pubs/shops and cafes which is ideal, it was never noisy but we could of done with air conditioning as it was boiling hot in the night, I wasn't sure if air con came at an extra price or not.

Didn't see many older people in the hotel or families but it appears suitable for others not just youngsters which were mainly there but were quiet.

A very enjoyable stay over all and would consider staying with the Riveria again if we went to Ibiza :)

We have just arrived back from this hotel. One adult and two 18 year olds. There wasn't a kids club so I wouldn't recommend for children.
Staff - all of the staff were friendly, helpful and polite.
Rooms - our rooms were kept spotlessly clean every day. The housekeeping staff worked very hard keeping the whole place clean.
Food - you get what you pay for. I like fish so had fish, salad and rice or chips a lot. The girls were more fussy and are chips a lot with a bit of the bit meat dishes. They are fussy eaters so I let them get on with it. They always found something to eat.
Snacks are served in the bar by the pool daily. There are sandwiches, fruit, biscuits and sometimes they have pizza or nachos.
Bar - the bar staff are lovely. Tony is funny and they all have a laugh if you order 'sex on the beach'. The cups may be seen as small to some but we found them ok. We went in Sept though and there was hardly any queues. Good selection of drinks. We had vodka cokes and had to ask them to tone down the vodka as it was so strong.
Rooms - the walls are very thin and you can hear everything. People coming home in the early hours can wake you up but hey you're on holiday and everyone is entitled to fun. I was lucky that I had my two girls one side and a quiet couple the other. The girls had a family next to them who were very disrespectful and made loads of noise all times of the day and night. Respect goes a long way. The beds are lovely to sleep in. Very comfortable. Not what I was expecting. We shut the balcony door when out of room as we had a small roof under our balcony. We did hire an A/C remote. The one done both rooms which was good but if you didn't have the remote over night it got quite cold. It may be worth getting two.
The room and bedding were kept clean. The bathroom was nice. The shower was very powerful which was a surprise as it didn't look like it would be. You can hear everyone else's toilet flush or shower on but it's not a bother.
There was entertainment in the afternoon and evening. During the day there were quizzes and competitions to join in with. They break up the day and we had a laugh. We also had a foam party! That was fun. We loved it. The music was good at times and maybe a bit repetitive.We found the male DJ to play the music he wanted to listen to but the women mixed it up more. There was also Karaoke.
There were other places to go out locally or you could get the boat or taxi into San Antonio for the bigger clubs and other bars.
Overall we had a good holiday. For the money we paid it exceeded our expectations. We were expecting a lot less quality. There were young and old staying here which was nice to see. But there were a few bored kids but that's not the hotels fault.
I don't generally go back to the same holidays I've been on but that's me. I would consider going for a few days break though as its a nice, cheap and friendly hotel. Go all inclusive! We spoke to some that didn't and they all had run out of money.

Been to Ibiza on numerous occasions and this is by far the worst hotel I personally have stayed in.
To be fair it nothing to do with the staff who if we had a problem or query the were answered honestly and quickly..
The hotel it's self is more catered for All inclusive.. Ie the bar was closed when we came in at night sometimes at 12 or 0300.. Obviously when All Inclusive guest don't pay they don't stay there... We were on the second floor and the noise was terrible from people coming and going. Also music from some rooms was terrible complained one morning but it never changed.. Was there for seven nights struggled to sleep on 3 off the nights..

Room Tip: Read on here before I went should have listened to it ask for room on 5th floor and as far as possib...
