Check-In and Reception
We stayed at the Riviera Hotel for a week from Easter Sunday, April 2014. We booked through Thomsons.
The transfer from the airport is about 20 minutes, and the reception check in was extremely well organised and swift.
The room was clean, spacious, plenty of storage, comfortable beds – and nicely decorated.
The room was on the right hand side of the hotel (as you stand and look at the hotel from the front/road). The balcony had a nice sea view and of the beach.
Restaurant / Half-Board
The food was nice – at breakfast, we often had an omelette made, and ate a few times in the evening, in the restaurant. It had a nice selection, and was well presented.
The pool area was clean and tidy – we never used it, but many of the other guests were making use of the facilities.
We always found everyone we spoke to was friendly and helpful, particularly the Thomson rep.
We would recommend staying here.
1.65 Euros per journey – per adult
Chesters – a nice pint, and the Spanish bar across the road from the hotel was very nice.
There was a great Indian restaurant up the road (heading towards Torremolinos) – called Indian City, which we would thoroughly recommend.
Mama Gina’s on the promenade – also did great pizzas.More
