On arrival you drive past the casino that is advertised on the website...however this is just a... More

We stayed here last year and had such a disappointing holiday, the hotel is more like a 1-2* at best. The weather was beautiful and the beach was amazing but the hotel was just awful. It is disgustingly filthy, the decor is old and paint is falling off the walls, the (fake) river that runs through it had no water... More

We initially booked with the sister hotel, Sol Y Mar Riva Club but a week before departure it got closed down, not surprised if the Sol Y Mar Riva Beach goes by anything. We then had no choice and got moved to Sol Y Mar Riva... More

Disappointing isn't the word, the pics looked great, the reality was something else altogether! reception was shabby with a derelict 'river' running through it, a la carte restaurants and most bars were closed. I'm not big on entertainment at resorts, but they didn't even have the bar open in the area???? Public area toilets were on a scale with the... More
