I found this resort through Google and booked it through Agoda. Lovely location right on the beach , quiet ambience , interesting space . I was surprised by the spacious room . It provided a view of the sunset and sea waves . Anyone looking to spend quality time and have conversation with sea waves , this is the place . Food is ok , service and hospitality very friendly .

I stayed here with a friend in the middle of December. We went into the trip not having anything planned at all, and our new friends at Riva Beach Resort made sure that each day was a delight! They made excellent recommendations for restaurants, places to visit, and how to spend our time. The room was kept very clean and neat. The food and coffee at the resort was wonderful. Mr Manoj at the front desk became a great friend and took care of us! I can't wait to return to this place one day!

Room Tip: Request a room that faces the beach.

One of the best places we have visited.... The location was simply awesome. The Beach Front cottage provides a magnificent view of the sea & the beach. If someone is looking for a secluded, calm & serene place for holidays then this is it. The best thing that was the photographs posted in the website for Riva Beach resorts were not manipulated and it displayed what the place is in reality. Would visit again for sure.

Room Tip: Choose Beach Front Cottages....they have a superb view and very peaceful !!

Riva beach resort is an excellent resort in the northern most goa, at Mandrem beach near Arambol area of Goa. We stayed there for three days from13th to the 16th Feb.

Pros:
1. On the beach property, separated by a small river with a wooden bridge leading to the beach giving it a scenic look.
2. Most rooms with a clear beach view.
3. Mandrem beach is a quiet clean beach, ideal for people looking for a peaceful time rather than the commercial madness of Baga or Calangute.
4. Decent food options in the hotel and the shack outside.

Cons
1. Some of the cottages do not have a good view, avoid them if possible.
2. Breakfast is not a buffet but pre-fixed menu.
3. Travel to Baga, Calangute


Overall a recommended property for someone looking for a good 3 star property.

Room Tip: Delux rooms, Ocean facing rooms, Suites are good. Courtyard cottage Avoid.

I booked an overnight stay at Riva as a birthday/thank you present for my sister and husband, 5/2/14. On arrival the management upgraded our rooms. The rooms are lovely, flat screen tv and facilities to make a cup of tea. The sound of the sea is so comforting. We had a fantastic couple of days, and staying at RIVA only added to it. We will hopefully be back next year

Room Tip: We saw 3 rooms while we where there and all looked lovely
