Riviera is right on the beach on the PCH. Walking distance to the beach. Beach has firepits ready to use. Easy to get to off the highway. Rooms were clean, spacious, but a little outdated. We were on the back side of the facility with a gorgeous view of the retaining wall streaked with water marks. Couch was early 1980...

We were in the newly remodeled building(It's the last one on the right as you enter the lobby.) We were in room 419 and had a great view of the ocean. I was also impressed that they have gas BBQs on every balcony. The beach is a short walk from the resort. and they have free bikes and helmets to...

Came to this resort for a timeshare presentation. Our appointment was at 9am, we arrived early and were greeted just fine! As soon as they got wind that we were not interested after only a few questions...their hospitality ended there! They gave us their little group presentation and then when they took us to the room where u get an...

This is a wonderful location with a tired hotel. Interior doors need replacing, bathtub drains are dirty, bathtub caulking is way paste the "use date" and it just is tired. Since I am an owner I am very unhappy with the situation. Maybe beach goers only care about the ocean?

My parent's were supposed to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary at this resort. TODAY!!! Booked the stay in 2016 & modified the room type on March 20th (arriving April 14). Both, the 3rd party and I contacted the hotel on various occasions. Each and every-single time. Not an exaggeration. Literally, every time we called we were told "we don't have...

We stayed here for 6 nights and will not stay ever again. The room was spacious and nice but that's all I can say. The room was cleaned only one time during the 7 day stay, that is their policy. Also, this is a time share facility so there was a pitch to buy into it. The sales lady called...

We were invited here to stay in exchange for us doing a time share presentation. Nice place for an overnight or two, but I would never come here for an extended stay. First off your ocean view rooms are right next to the Pacific Coast Highway, so if you want to take a book on the balcony to enjoy the...

Came for a relaxing weekend away. We arrived late on a Thursday for a 3 night stay. Was asked if I wanted to get reservations for a breakfast to listen to a sales pitch. I declined, but the concierge made reservations any way. When I didn't go to the breakfast/sales pitch I never agreed to attend, I was charged $20!!!...

Let me start this out by saying that I travel a lot. My family is platinum members with diamond resort and they got a few rooms for everyone. The rooms were loud at night because of the road and train, there is music playing in the hallway all night long (I've never seen a resort do this), and our fridge...

We are Diamond Resorts members. Riviera Shores was easy to get into (two ocean view suites) on relatively short notice. We wanted something close to an airport (Orange County) and Disneyland. This worked well for short..under an hour ... drives. We had a group of six adults and three children. The rooms were comfortably furnished. The bed and linens and...
