We have just returned from a 1 week stay at Hotel Grand Riviera in a junior suite overlooking the bay. It isn't necessary to have a junior suite to get a sea view. All rooms seemed to be to a very high standard and extremely clean.
The hotel has very attractive communal areas including a fabulous terrace bar.
The beach deck area is easily accessible using the lift and there are plenty of sun loungers and beach umbrellas for all.
The pool area is sufficient enough for lounging and swimming but not if you want to swim athletically. The views are great from here as it is situated on the cliff top. It is not geared up for children but does have a small children's pool. It is very peaceful because of this. It does become shaded in the late afternoon due to the situation of the neighbouring hotel.
We selected the half board option and were certainly not disappointed. It is table service and not buffet, with plenty of choice for all tastes. Each family is allocated their own table for the duration of their stay.
The service is like being in a high end restaurant with excellent cooking. You will feel out of place if you're not dressed for dinner.
Bar, restaurant, pool and beach staff are very attentive and respect privacy. They are obviously proud of what they do.
Many of the people we met have visited on numerous occasions. The hotel has a very calm atmosphere which is great if you have been out visiting any of the tourist attractions.
We are sure to visit again...and again...
