The hotel is popular with an older age group and most are return visitors, some return several times a year for weeks / month at a time (some appeared...

We booked a 10 night stay here which included the New Years celebrations. We were allocated room 618. This room was very close to the main road which was very very busy for 20 hours every day. As previous reviewers have noted, the air conditioning was not switched on at all, and the only way to cool down the room...

Since my visit in 2016, the Riviera is now part of the Sensimar group rather than Med Playa. Fortunately, it's as good as ever in most areas. A welcome drink upon arrival; speedy check-in; my room not quite as good as last year's , though I did have a balcony this time. However, be warned...one side of this hotel is...

Very good hotel in excellent location alongside the promenade. The majority of the staff were always happy, smiling and helpful. Our room on the 3rd floor facing the pool and sea was excellent. Clean, large, plenty of storage with fridge, kettle etc and safe included in the price. The heating did seem to be on and we could not get...

Great hotel, great food, good location....very good staff. Lots to do in the area. Would definitely go again. The best rooms are with sea views and sunshine all day. Lovely walks along the sea front from the hotel, both ways.

My wife and I visited the Riviera for a weeks break early in the New Year. The Hotel was just as previous reviews. Nice room, helpful staff, great food. A La Carte restaurant is free of charge for one visit and was very nice too. We didn't stay in the hotel in the evening as the entertainment was aimed at...

Stayed here with my partner for 11nights over the festive period. Staff in all departments were lovely and reception staff were very helpful. Becky the Thomsons rep was very helpful too. Meals were of a good variety but could have been a little warmer most times. Restaurant staff were very efficient at clearing tables and always with a smile. Guests...
