                            The salt water pools next to the sea- access via a tunnel under the road and breakfast was good the unobstructed sea view from the ballcony was worth the extra (superior room) the beds where very comfortable - big thick mattress good ac, no coffee or tea facility though

                            Nothing to say good.

                            Very Expensive. Too much Expensive but the room is small, hard bed, small bathroon, breakfirst was poor items, no chef to cook eggs, no complemental water, no electic pot, Its really waste of money.

                            I loved the location of the hotel as much as very polite and trained staffs. Everything was just perfect except the price that was not comparable with other hotels at all, but I enjoyed my stay there specially the amazing beach, swimming pool nd the fresh DJ's they had. Plus a very helpful front office manager (Elie) who was so polie and flixible with guests requests. Riviera will be my first destination again in the next trip to Beirut.. :)

                            The staff was extremely kind and accommodating. When I arrived they upgraded me to a premium room, and were very helpful with anything I needed. The beach club is a lot of fun, but only go if you want a dj and a swim-up bar! It gets busy after lunchtime. This is one of my favorite places in Beirut.

                            The facilities, especially the swimming pool and the restaurant at the swimming pool ( au goura sel ).

                            LOCATION and facilities.

                            You can see is is an old hotel although they continiously renovate it. Rooms are ok, the younger part of the staff is louzy and lazy, the older ones are good. The beach/pool area is fantastic. Lots of local (the beautiful) people that have to buy a membership to enter the pool area. But as hotel guest you always get the best spot on one of the pools or at sea. (No beach). 15 taxi minutes away from the airport and 5 to10 minutes away from downtown which is hot for dining and clubbing.

                            The sea view rooms are spectacular. Location. Location. Location. The resort/pool area right on the sea is 5 star. We were upgraded to a full sea view. The room was older, dated and 'tired', however. Insist on a newly renovated room, but they are priced accordingly.

                            Again, this hotel is dated and 'tired', but service was excellent - 5 star service. Insist on renovated room on the higher levels.

                            Friendly and professional staff, good location on the Mediterranean, and they have a very nice private beach. Some floors are currently under renovation. The 4th floor is already renovated and it is very modern and elegant. I had a premium room and I really liked it.

                            Location at the centre of the corniche. Reasonable price compared to the likes of the Movenpick which was overpriced compared to other Movenpicks stayed in. Helpful tourist desk and lobby staff. Breakfast included in rate and good. Nice beach club, handy for families. .

                            3Rd floor refurbishment continuing till after 10pm.

                            The staff were very friendly - gave great advice about where to go in Beirut. T.V in room had great choice of programmes

                            No tea/coffee making facilaties in the room.

                            We arraived at the hotel at noon and the greeting was excellent, despite the 15.00 check-in time we were upgraded to a premium suite and in the room minutes later.

                            If you book a superior suite and arrive looking forward to a long soak in the jacuzzi you will be dissapointed! The Riviera doesn't have any rooms with a bubble bath! Room service is ok but if you put hot food on cold plates guess what happens by the time the order is delivered to the 5th floor! As for the food....... not bad, we have both tasted far worse!

                            Frontdesk and staff was very helpful and pleasant. Furniture was well used, but classic and tasteful. Balcony had nice view (North facing) and was equipped with double sliding doors. Internet available for 10$/5hrs which you can use as needed.

                            Hotel is in bad need for structural repair (loose floor tiles, walls chipping, door lock broken, door not sealed against outside noises, faucet leaking (was quickly repaired). Carpets are totally worn out and stained. The elevator dropped 10cm when we got on, 2 persons. I took the stairway from then on...Breakfast looks nice, but toast was dry/hard and attendance was low. Location on busy road (Corniche) but amenities 10 min steep walk away. Forget the taxi for short trips, Beirut is a traffic jam. All in all not a 4 star, 3 at best today. Repair is ongoing...
