This hotel looks fancy from the outside but isn't. The rooms are very clean, meals are very good and the dining area isn't busy, so no mad scramble around the buffet area. There is no tea making facilities in the room and balconies are very small. I had requested a room on the other side of the pool as it gets the sun from about 4 pm onwards but on arrival the receptionist said most people like to overlook the pool which gets the sun early morning. The pool we were overlooking was in fact the hotel next door which only highlighted the fact that the Riveria Beach Hotel pool was very small and very dull, the sun doesn't get to it until 1 pm and if you want a drink you have to leave the pool area and go to the front of the hotel, there is not a table and chair area around the pool only sunbeds. We spend the week around the Rosamar pool which is far superior. We eventually changed the room to the other side but were given the only room that had a large tree in front of it there the view from the balcony was restricted. We were there in April just before the Easter holiday and there was no air con switched on. On day one when we arrived late in the evening we thought we had turned it on and in fact it was heating the room. When I asked the next morning if the air con could be looked at, the receptionist informed us that it was too early for the air con to be switched on, even though the weather was really hot. The only way to cool the room down in the evening was to leave the balcony door open which let in the mosquito's and the noise from the main road, we were eaten alive. Other hotels in the area had their air con on, therefore I feel the Riveria Beach were just trying to save money and not look after the needs of the visitor. The new entertainment room is very nice, just pick the acts you want to see, some better than others.
