I took my folks for lunch at the restaurant and to see what the timeshare was like. We were warmly welcomed by one of the new staff members who escorted us to the outside pool area. The service was outstanding until the meal arrived. My father and myself felt like steak but saw that there was only Rump on the...

I went to the Riviera Hotel for my honeymoon. The setting of the hotel as well as facilities is great. What attracted me so much is the bath and mirror with the lights in. It is very neat and the staff is very professional.

We have stayed in a self catering unit (number 16) at the Rivera Hotel. Got great service from all the staff, the place is cosy and clean and has amazing views. Will recommend it anytime for a single traveller as well as for a family vacationers. Superb manager and staff that really makes an impression.

We had a nice family room. But was dissapointed because of the self catering. The room doesn't have a stove or microwave, not a fridge and no kitchen utensils except a cup and teaspoon. The bathroom wasn't up to 4 star standards and the shower looks dirty..

We spent some time here whilst looking for a wedding venue. The staff were friendly, and very helpful. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Sure, the service was a bit slow some times but they clearly state that in the menu. I'd rather enjoy a drink and a chat whilst waiting for good food, than be rushed to eat...

Nice place to have a Sundowner. Good food to little staff. Overlooking the lagoon just gives you the holiday feeling. Nice music at night. Outside braai with braai packs to buy and enjoy onsite.Pool needs to be cleaned every night for the amount of people using it.

Unbelievable setting, good infrastructure but total lack of service....actually non existent. Yesterday room service only put the duvet back over the sheets, not even trying to make the bed up. Sunday evenings in high season the kitchen is closed......not even a toasted sandwich on offer. Really... It is criminal that such a beautiful venue must be mismanaged to the extend...
