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.

Much needed break

We stayed at the hotel Rviera this week 4th visit to Benalmadana & 2nd visit to this hotel. We Are discerning travellers with a sharp eye for detail.. Last time we stayed here a few years ago it was like being in an O.A.P home . This time completely different smart/modern decor laminate floors/flat screen t.v's glass & stainless steel balastrades walk in wet room ,super king size bed ..the list goes on etc etc Situated in the heart of the bars & entertaiment area of Benalmadana this hotel is ideally situated for night life yet is not affected by any road noise due to brand new double glazed windows & doors. We stayed on a room only basis knowing that we can eat out cheap & convieniently when we want to eat.. Breakfast at miday etc - nice. Sunbeds were available all the time we were there never a time without 2 being available for us to chill out on , Some reserving did go on by the inconsiderat minority but most guests showed due consideration for others. We will definately return.. hopefully this year as this hotel would be very hard to beat. Top tips book online room only & eat out - works out as cheap as half board & gives you freedom of choice. Rodeo steak house rump steak for 2 & a bottle of wine only 25 euros. Do not book a transfer from airport collet cases & catch a 128 bus from just outside terminal building which drops you off just accross the road from the hotel at only 3.60 euroes each.More

Riviera Hols

I have just returned from a week at the Riviera Hotel with my boyfriend. We booked a premium room with sea view. The room was large with a fantastic balcony which got the sun all day. The bed was massive, you could have fit a family of six in it! But very comfortable. We received a bottle of cava and gorgeous fruit basket on our arrival. We also got the fridge for free. We only stayed on a b&b basis but could not fault the quality of food and the wide choice. We ate out at the marina most nights which is only a short walk along the seafront. I recommend spending the extra and opting for a premium room.More


Good location

This was our first visit and we are thinking of returning. Room was spacious, clean with great walk in shower. Adults only which was very restful. There is a lift down to the promenade which runs along the beach edge. Turn left out of grounds and it is a short walk to the wonderful marina which a great place for morning coffee. Turn right and there is a great selection of restaurants. I was using a mobility scooter and it was easy to get around the hotel and the promenade. We did not go up in to the town area as it is very hilly and the beach gave everything we needed. To get to the hotel restaurant there are some steps after getting out of the nearest lift but there is a longer way around using the promenade lift which also stops at the different levels of the grounds. We only ate breakfast in the hotel which was adequate with a lot of choice. All staff are helpful, friendly and efficient.More

Two's up

A good two week stay This time we stayed on the street side of the hotel and like others have said the noise from the traffic isn't any good if you want to sit on the balcony and watch the world go bye When the balcony door is shut the noise is thankfully kept out No English tv other than sky news and CNN news on the usual half hour repeat Would have been nice to watch a hour of tv before bed 42 € for the safe same for the fridge is a bit of a pants down experience Food was ok ish but after 3 days we ate out every evening Will we return??? Probably not there are better and cheaper optionsMore
