Calidad constante de modo natural

9.29/10

Un hotel maravilloso, que funciona con personas amables, eficaces, naturales, alegres Manolo, p.ej.. Donde la playa está al salir del hotel, y la piscina en el mismo hotel con vistas de encanto. Comida rica y variada, en un comedor acogedor a pesar de ser muy grande con vistas a la mar. Mucha y puntual limpieza. Los animadores, gente activa con propuestas orientadas a la comunidad inglesa nos gusto, nos ha dado oportunidad de escuchar bonitas canciones inglesas o americanas. Especial mención al color del hotel, como queriendo pasar desapercibido en el paisaje gris, acompañado del color aluminio claro del metal de los balcones. Así como la estancia de la recepción, espaciosa, con mobiliario suficiente, nueva, moderna, clara, alegre, noble...

Best hotel I have tried in this area! Excellent!!!

9.64/10

We had a beautifull stay the views of this hotel are stunning! the stuff is really cool and kind! The food is excellent and the hotel and rooms are modern comfortable, quiet, I am so impressed I was there in December for my birthday and I am going back in February. The staff wasn't just friendly but great people to talk to. I thank again the maitre for his kindness, as he had the beautiful gesture of serving a bottle of cava on the house. I recommend this hotel over every other one in Torremolinos, which need refurbishment.

Hotel refurb.

7.86/10

just got back from a fortnight at the hotel Riviera and found the refurbishment of the hotel superb.The rooms are quite lovely and the maid service is as always very good.Loads of choice at mealtimes but sometime the food could have been hotter especially breakfast the bacon was like it had been in the oven all night very well done and so hard your fork wouldn't pick it up.We can't comment on the entertainment because we like to have a wander up to the village and have drinks in the local bodegas in the evenings.Bars are less expensive up in ebensa square and loads of people about to chat to.Can't think we'll rush back for a while because I think it's gone far too expensive towards the other four star hotels in the area.One thing we missed out on was a visit to the a la carte restaurant because unless you go to the welcome meeting no one tells you its free to all guests once a week.We visit the area loads of times so we don't attend the meetings now and I just think it should be advertised somewhere in all the bumph they leave in the room or through the rep. Room Tip: all rooms are up to the same good standard now Sybil e; Reviewed 13 June 2013 //TripAdvisor LLC//

Good hotel needs work!

8.21/10

We stayed at the Riviera last week and had a lovely time. Food was good and a great location. Highlights of our stay where the Lionel Richie act and the Duo 'Te Switch'. Was great to stay in the hotel and have such great acts brought in to entertain us. Other Entertainment was not great but seemed to be improving after speaking with other guests about previous weeks! Needs more variety, its great to listen to the duo but there is only so much music I can take would love more events that had audience participation! Hopefully everything gets sorted out but overall a very pleasant holiday! Well done all. MartinSmith1 Reviewed 9 June 2013 TripAdvisorLLC

Good first visit

8.57/10

Having holidayed for 17 years in Benalmadena in an apartment, my husbands health meant that we needed hotel facilities. We chose the Riviera because we had visited friends who were staying there last year and were very impressed by the facilities and entertainment. Just want to mention a couple of negatives. The entertainment was absolutely dire. It was 'organised' (and I use that phrase very loosely) by two very young girls, one of whom was more interested in her own reflection than the guests. They were very inexperienced and the whole atmosphere was very flat, on one evening it was so bad that a group of guests sent a deputation to reception. The only relief were the signers brought in from outside occassionaly and the lovely jazz duo. We very much felt that, as the hotel had only been open two weeks, that we were being experimented on. The other issue is the toilet facilities around the pool. You really had to make up your mind that you needed to go before you did. The toilet on the pool area was accessed down a very poorly lit steep flight of steps or a ramp which I would defy tarzan to push a wheelchair up and down. Otherwise you had to go down steps, up in the lift to reception, along a long corridor to the only gents loo in reception. Not good if you are disabled. Positively, I can't understand the comments about the food or queue for tables in the dining room, never had to wait ourselves, food was delicious, varied and always hot. Roberto, the matre d and his team were wonderful and very helpful. The rooms were excellent, we had 607 which was a superior room and had a sun lounger on the large balcony and got more or less all day sun. Huge beds and very comfortable, very spacious with a lovely bathroom. Excellent maid service. Lift down to the promenade is great and gave us the chance to have some lovely strolls along after dinner, in the wheelchair, so that we could escape the entertainment. It would have been nice for the Manager to mix more with the guests, he was seen sometimes, not making eye contact heading for his office, but other than that was not visible. The Thompson rep Christina was perhaps the best holiday rep that we had ever met, so very helpful. Would most definately go back but only if the entertainment is greatly improved. Don't want Las Vegas shows but simply professional entertainment. // SueColin. booked through Thomson. Reviewed 3 June 2013 TripAdvisorLCC //

May Holiday

4.64/10

This was a new refurbished couples hotel by Thomson. Rooms very comfortable, Had to wait to be seated at dining room sometimes up to 10 minutes, food was very poor, never very warm, popular dishes were not replenished on a regular basis. Coffee always luke warm at breakfast, again food luke warm. Entertainment was shocking. At start of second week some people who were regular visitors to this hotel requested a meeting with the Thomson management team. This resulted in the resident entertainment team being sacked and another duo employed who were not much better. Various artists were equally as bad. The Hotel had no atmosphere and certainly not what one would expect from a 4* hotel. Guests were going home to cancel trips for later in the year. //Booked through Thomson.
