Pros: All-inclusive catering with food and drink continually available.

Stayed in accessible room with sea view on ground floor, with hired mobility scooter.

Good friendly hotel lovely views

Posted 21-Aug-2016
Staff helpful and polite. Hotel little dated but very clean. Location quiet but town accessible by local bus. Food ok although restaurant slightly chaotic,not well laid out and often short of cutlery and crockery but staff always polite and helpful. Good value for money.

Brilliant views of Comino and Gozo. The speedboat trip to Comino is a must. Lots of lovely places to visit in Gozo. Personal service given by hotel on arrival extremely high standard.

Hotel is within a few metres of a rocky beach.

Posted 25-Jun-2016
Pros: The friendly staff.
Cons: The quality of food for vegetarians; the variety of food that is available for breakfast and all inclusive should mean all inclusive .
Location: Not a lot except ferry to Gozo and private boat hire.
Not at all satisfied for an all inclusive deal. No kettle in room to make tea or coffee. No bottled water supplied on daily basis except upon arrival. Poor facilities for vegetarians which we are). Hotel staff were excellent. I would not recommend this as an all inclusive deal.

Perfect for visits to Gozo

Posted 21-Mar-2016
Pros: It was not full of pretentious people showing off. But full of real people enjoying great value for money.
Cons: Great rates always come at a price to the building. Attention to detail is super hard on a tight maintenance budget which can lead to some faded glory
Location: The Gozo ferry is close by, so visit is a must as it is equally as good as Malta itself. Great views.
The hotel is a short distance to the ferry to Gozo. This is a great little island with a slower pace and great walks, with views that will take your breath away. Even the ferry is a pleasant diversion. The Hotel Riviera Resort and Spar is all that most will need to spend some time on Malta. To start the day you will be treated to an all you can eat breakfast which has an amazing variety. Packed lunches are available at reasonable rates. Evening dinner in the Sol e Mar bistro are a pleasant experience at a cost that belies the quality. The staff are considerate and informative, who carry out their duties in a quiet and efficient manner. An unfussy approach does away with the stuffiness of some hotels and focusses on what is important. Yes if you want the 'Ritz' this is not it. However for magnificent views and tranquility at a great value for money hotel then stay at the Riviera Resort and Spar. The transfer from the Airport is about 40 minutes by car. Our short stay (three days) was all to short, which means another visit would be most welcome.

could have been much better

Posted 23-Jan-2016 on Hotels
the room was amazing and it had a beautiful sea view,you actually have 2 rooms that are huge with balcony and large terrace,a living room and a bedroom.air condition was amazing.our only disappointments were not having coffee/tea making available in your room(but you can get it available if you request it from reception with an extra charge on a daily rental)could have been appreciated if we were told upon arrival as we didn't realize that until we read the information sheet on our second day we stayed there,and having lunch wasn't easy unless you booked lunch as per before(buffet)considering that we visited the hotel on an off season most of the restaurants near by were closed so you had to go far to get a decent lunch.breakfast can surely improve;)however we took dinner from sol e mar bistro every evening and food was amazing!

Pros: Indoor swimming pool
Cons: Air conditioning didn't work properly and fridge in the lounge area was constantly leaking. Small bed in the living room wasn't comfortable.
Was a pleasing stay at the hotel. However the heat was excruciating and horrid. Not recommended to travel to Malta when it is full summer season. Harbour cruise was fabulous. Gozo ok. Food was ok, although very repetitive at times and dinner left overs were served again for lunch the next morning. Spa staff were very welcoming.
