Beautiful location and beautiful accommodations! Very convenient to dining and shopping. Wish we could have stayed longer in Split. Highly recommend Riva Suites! Breakfast was phenomenal! Communication with personnel was very prompt and efficient as was transportation arrangements for us to and from the airport.

I could not think of a better place to stay in Split. Location is stunning! It is a bit tricky to get to the apartment with the luggage, but this should not scare you. The help we have received from Josko was amazing. This will be my first choice of the place to stay when I'm back in Split.

Place was amazing, so tidy! The view from the room was unbelievable! It was more of a honeymoon suite with the bath etc. but was great! Quite pricey but is deffs worth the money! I would 100% stay here again on my next trip

We were travelling with a young kid, all three of us had a great time staying at the master suite, the cherry on top is definitely the private rooftop facing the Riva promenade and harbor. The location cannot be more central, you are right on top of the action. The complimentary breakfast at "7" was also top notch, we had... More

We were in one of the two apartments at #12 on the Esplanade. Mr. Josko Luketin was a great help to us in every way. He found us in the dark, in the wrong car park & helped us park. Then escorted us to our "suite". He thankfully also carried our bags up 34 uneven stairs. Our room had an... More

First, no parking and no cars. It is on a pedestrian sea view boardwalk. They made it very clear, and I planned to return our rental car the day we checked in. There are a number of rental companies close by and I walked the 5 minutes to the room. Arranging check in was easy. Communication by phone was easy... More

I just have to love the atmosphere in our suite. Whoever design the suite (we've got the 40 m2 Suite with Sea View) has an outstanding taste. The location is unbeatable. Mr. Josko Luketin is a terrific manager who always has an open ear and tries to meet our wish. I less like the property's key system. I believe nothing... More

My husband and I started our Croatian honeymoon at Riva suites and it was a great place to feel spoiled. We stayed in the junior luxury suite with terrace. The apartment is gorgeous but the real selling point is the terrace overlooking the promenade and sea. The apartment has all the gadgets you need with built in speakers including on... More

Tip: reach out to the suites and ask where to park - and listen to the directions they give you precisely. When you get to the lot - the attendant (90/10 chance) will declare the lot it full (especially in the high season). When you tell the attendant that you are staying at Riva they will take you to a... More
