We were a bit concerned at first as we had to check into the Hotel Mirage which looked absolutely lovely much nicer than the residence. However when we asked to upgrade our ground floor apt to a higher one they did so with out fuss and even gave us a discount on the new room rate.
The apt was basic but very clean. and a very good size. We had a one bedroom apt and so had a seperate lounge kitchen. This would easily sleep 4-5 people.
We had friends staying all over riva due to a wedding and because we were a couple of hiundred feet up the mountain (walkable) we had by far the best view. Most hotels in Riva don't offer good views of the lake and mountains so if you like ti sit ion the balcony and sip wine, whilst chatting away. This is an ideal location.
Overall a very nice holiday location and very good self catering accomodation. If we ever go back to Riva then we will almost certainly return to Residence simply because of the views.
One major draw back is that there is no Air con and it can get very warm. Although we felt safe enought to hae the massive doors and windows open 24/7 and that did help some.
The pool was very nice and cleaned out daily and there is a large grassed area with table tennis table (provide your owns bats and balls) and a bbq area too.
Overall good clean and well equipped for a self catering. Aircon would be good and i'd have been willing to pay extra for it. but did not spoil holiday.
