Hotel Riviera  


This new addition to the Thomson Couples collection was made-over in summer 2013 to include a new wellness area, a speciality restaurant, and stylish new premium rooms.

Thanks to a head-to-toe refurbishment, the Hotel Riviera has made it into the exclusive Thomson Couples collection. TripAdvisor reviewers approve of the upgrade, gifting it a Certificate of Excellence.

Rooms have been completely made over, with plump beds and sound-proof double glazing. Premium rooms even come with hydro-massage baths.

Just back after a 7 day holiday at the Riviera. This is the most modern hotel I have stayed at in Spain. Rooms are spacious and very well equipped with an extra large bed and a shower room with twin sinks and all are kept immaculately clean. The air con is very good and is so quiet it doesn't keep you awake at night. One minor grip is that the bed and pillows were a little on the hard side for my wife and I. I would recommend asking for a high up room away from the road if you like sitting on the balcony of an evening. The dining room was spacious and had the usual choices at both breakfast and evening meal however I liked the show cooking area which offered freshly cooked omelettes and pancakes at breakfast and meats and fish at the evening meal. The poolside bar also had a decent menu for lunchtime and bar prices were reasonable. The entertainment was a little on the embarrassing at times however the reps Danny and Laura soldiered with what they had. The music was mainly 70's so it was to our taste!! Staff at the hotel were all very friendly, helpful and cheerful however i would like to mention Manolo in the restaurant, Kino in the bar, Francisco and Juan at reception and especially the Thomson rep Christina who was always helpful and very upbeat. The pool is lovely and there are plenty of sun beds both poolside and at the many garden areas dotted around the sea side of the hotel. The Riviera is ideally placed with the marina a short walk away so if you want alternative entertainment or dining there is plenty on offer. All in all this hotel and staff are very deserving of the 4 star rating and we would go back.More

First time On The Costa

Not my first time, but the other 'alfs. Picked at random and overall have to say we were not dissapointed. Rooms, service, double glazing and overall Hotel good. The food was solid but unadventurous. As more than one person has said, the entertainment was a bit dire. After the first night e didn't stay in past 9.00 at all, instead we found a bar with live music just across the road. Despite the problems there is a good chance we will be back there again next year.More

Spot on!!

No complaints about anything regarding the hotel or it's staff. Ideal position in the resort and really friendly staff. The restaurant is bright and uncluttered and plenty of variety in the food offered. The A La Carte option is a pleasant change and experience.More

very good

very good hotel, right beside the beach, nice pool, food was above expectations,5 mins fom the marina so handy for everything. only downside was the entertainment was so bad it was funny at times but you really need to leave the hotel for entertainment as its dreadful. but we never went for that anyway and found our own out in the town.More

thompson's couples. just stayed for 10 days, superior room. 7th. floor, sea view. good dining room for breakfast, dinner left a little to be desired, never stayed in a 4* hotel with such a low dress standard for the dining room, t-shirts, jeans, and flip flops for men at dinner??? the in house entertainment was something like the curate's egg, good in places, the thursday night (our last) was the best with a quality male singer, whilst some of the others were a little poor tbh. the overall evening entertainment within the resort drove you into the hotel on an evening, and whilst benalmedina is attractive during the day, it offers very little at night.More
