Royal Riviera Hotel & Resort
Ranked #6 of 15 Kumarakom B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 February 2014

the royal definitely does not live up to its name, the rooms are big but not clean, there was a lizard in our room and the food is pathetic. the hotel offers free boating withing their premises but the location is probably the worst in kumarakom, there are no attractions around the hotel and the only place to visit is the bird sanctuary where you wont be able to see any birds. all in all the hotel and kumarakom is a waste of time.

Good hotel to stay, I with my wife stayed for one night on 8th Jan, 2014. Room was nice and clean, staff was excellent. Hotel has its own indoor activities like boating, swimming, carrom, table tennis ensures that you are not bored. restaurant food was also good, Breakfast was ok. Will recommend this hotel if you are visiting kerela. Don't go for shikara ride or sunset view visit if you are planning to go for Houseboat as same view and experience is available in houseboat as well.

Stayed here for one night. A well done property with excellent rooms and good room service. However, the restaurant had limited options to offer. The gardern and lawn areas were beautifully maintained and overall a very neat and clean place. If one look at the type of rooms and services offered, cost wise it was a complete value for money. Not too expensive but offered great facilities!

I visited with my family to the backwater of Kerala and stayed in this hotel. The ambience of the hotel was excellent and surrounded by backwater. The food was good, hotel staff was efficient and courteous, rooms are spacious and well maintained.

Had stay for one night and it was awesome.The hotel is located inside and the road is bit rough but the location is awesome.Its right opp the backwater lake.Rooms are big and clean.Its divided as an studio.both drawing room and bedroom has LCD tv and ac with small refrigerator.it also has small balcony which faces fields.Coming to food..it though not big menu but carters most of cuisine.Taste is also good.One can enjoy buffet dinner/lunch which is reasonable.Right from manager and staff everyone is courteous and helpful.Children can have lots of activities like playing indoor outdoor games.it also has small pond where one can do boating.They also of spa which offers traditional Kerela massage and its amazing.overall this place is family friendly and relaxing.Highly recommended for comfort stay.
