The hotel is extremely well run, clean rooms, very good food and a Spa should you wish to use it. The only downside was the Saturday entertainment was not as expected and did not get many people up dancing. In fact quite a few people thought that they were playing for a care

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review following your Masonic weekend with us. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your break here at the Riv. Just to note, the Saturday entertainment was actually arranged by your group rather than by the Hotel. I'm told that the entertainment that we provided on the Friday night was very well received. If you need us to organise both nights' entertainment for your 2020 event, just us know! See you next year! A

You have to be 18, and have a credit card which they will scan at check in to hold for damages to the room (standard procedure for all hotels). You should probably check with the hotel directly before you travel as you don't want to travel there and then not be able to check in. Look at their website and call or email them

Are there any adult only times in pool or free for all all the time?
There is a live camera to the pool located at the reception desk so there itself you can see if there are a lot of people/kids in the pool. There is No adult only time . However the children are lesser earlier in the morning and during lunch hour or after 8pm

"We always have the same room which is a family room with a sea view if to crane your neck but that is not important."
"Try and go for the second floor sea-facing room if you can, or some first floor rooms have the view as well.."
"Try and request the lodge but I don' know if you can make a request. Trying can't hurt though"
"Ground floor room gave quick access to restaurant"
"Have a room with a balcony with a sea view"
