The location is beautiful best beach in Goa and right on it.. The rooms were gr8 and we were upgraded on arrival as there 10nights.. The staff were gr8 super friendly and helpful especially Diveya in reception.. I have to be honest though and wouldn't go breakfast option again as the breakfast was terrible.. Never any plates cutlery or milk and utter kaos..The door was always caked in grease from people's greasy hands.. Would definitely stay again just wouldn't get breakfast was a great restaurant on the beach that was cheap.. Also they need to chill out about pool towels as your on holiday.. Overall a great stay apart from breakfast and would stay again.. I think it's more of a 3:5 star than 4 star though to be honest.. If ever I returned I would stay again..

Nice location, excellent white sand beach”
Property is well maintained. courteous staff. Restaurant is great, spread and food quality was really good. Morning breakfast had a vast spread and good taste. Room sizes mentioned are not real, the room was relatively cozier than mentioned while booking. Swimming Pool is small, just good enough for kids to enjoy a splash. We tried using other facilities like fishing in the adjoining creek. We were fortunate to get a catch as well, we all enjoyed it. Only down side was the lack of parking space for your own vehicle, you have to just park outside along the road side, no dedicated parking area

Not the expected kind of place”
The day after we checked in we were advised that a Russian pool party was being organised every Sunday. The pool rapidly filled with an unsavoury crowd of party goers paying 100 rupees each to enjoy the resort for the full day. Not minding the fact that a bit of activity was happening, we thought we would go with flow and try enjoying ourselves. All the chairs in front of my verandah were used by the crowd, we were told that drinks we’re only available from the party bar. Fighting with my elbows against drunken people was not the most pleasant thing, neither the attitude of most of the crowd. I believe that as a paid guest the minimum service should be to have a bar reserved for paid guests and that some complimentary food and drinks should be offered as a compensation for the hassle. In term of cleanliness, the place is ok but the bathrooms and walls are in serious need of attention. The blinds are super mouldy for exemple. I’m not Convinced about the quality price value.

Great week spent at Riva ”
Just came back from spending 6 nights at Riva and we loved it. The hotel grounds are really beautiful, lots of palm trees and a 2 min walk to the beach across a wooden bridge over a peaceful river. Our room was clean and modern, nice big bed and seating area inside along with a balcony which was perfect to sit out on in the early evening. The bathroom was a wet room with a waterfall shower - which was the only part of the room that looked a little tired but still perfectly functional. Lots of options at breakfast and they also had an omelette and crepe station - although on two mornings the station didn't have anyone serving which was disappointing. Perhaps we were arriving a little late, so would recommend going before 10am. I would say the only thing that upset us was the taxi's waiting outside of the hotel were pricey and they seemed to quote high compared to other taxi's we got in other parts of Goa.

Good place to be but not the best place to be”
There are some contrasting features about this resort that's quite confusing. Few of the elements are good - 1. Nice location 2. No insects, mosquito inspite of rainy season 3. Restaurant serves good food 4. Room sizes are good and interior is attractive Few basic elements are so poor 1. Intercom to place order through room service suddenly gives you busy tone for 20-30 minutes continuously 2. While I checked in, I had a baby and after 12 hours road trip I requested reception to hand me keys to one of the rooms (I booked two rooms) so my wife can get the baby freshened up and they denied saying I need too fill forms first. I repeatedly said it can be done in 5-10 mins but to no avail. 3. While assistance was provided to shift luggage from reception to the room, the designated person didnt carry umbrella at first (it was raining heavily and we were to walk for 3-5 mins to get in the room) and asked us to wait till rain got over. With baby in lap, it was quite insensitive

The hotel was in a beautiful setting, the staff were very polite and efficient and the breakfast each morning was great. The breakfast had a very good selection each morning, and the restaurant was very reasonably priced. The hotel is abit in the middle of nowhere, but for a mere 20 ruppee you can catch the local bus directly outside and head to the local town for abit more of an adventure.

Best Place for Couples to Enjoy Solitude by the Beach”
We went to this place at the end of July. The resort is about 2 mins walking distance from the beach and we made the best of this. The beach is very clean and well maintained. The hotel is also perfect- has a swimming pool and the cottages are beautiful. We got one with the sea view and the view is awesome- you can just sit in the balcony stare at the sea and have a fantastic time. There's a scooter rental service available right outside the hotel and they charge you about INR 250 a day which makes it really convenient to roam around Goa. Arambol beach is at a walking distance of about 30-45 minutes (around 3 KM I think)- the sunset there is awesome. The breakfast needs a little improvement though- it has both Indian and Western cuisines and the Western cuisine to me looked like they made available just for namesake. Overall it was a great experience!

Riva beach resort was a value for money if you are looking for quite getaway from busy life, this is a perfect place to be in Goa. The location is faroff from the city life and thus makes it more comfortable stay. Food is awesome, Please do try their cheese naan. They do try to get some extra charges like if you break some crockery or misplace you keys they would be charging you very high for even nominal things. My overall experience was good. Would recommend a stay here

Everything thing was nice except for the cab service around the resort . Resort doesn't have its own cabs and the third party cab charges are exorbitant.. Being far from main parts of Goa and airport, transportation is very costly affair and may irritate when u are not able to enjoy the night life in Goa for this stupid cab unavailablility/costly cabs.

ravishing experience at riva :)”
The resort is exceptional. The facilities are fantastic and the location is beautiful. Beach is just a few steps away and many rooms even give a partial/total view of the sea. The rooms are very spacious however the prices are slightly on the higher side. The river side enclosures meant for sitting serve as perfect relaxing points. We would definitely prefer riva when we visit again and would recommend to all

very happy and satisfied.. 5stars..”
First of all, the Agoda "app" is troublesome, dont rely on it as far as dates r concerned.i booked a stay for 24-26th, the app showed me 23-25th (now while writing review, it shows my stay as 22-24). Out of all dis confusion,i rchd my destination 1 day prior, but the ppl here at Agoda are awesome n very co-operative.In a matter of minutes,Agoda managed with the hotel staff, n gave me d desired rooms a day in advance (n of course, compensated for the trouble too).. Abt the resort, it is simply amazing. best location, with crystal clear water on the beach; v less frequented, so less polluted. Premium suites are spacious,cozy n comfortable, n provide direct beach view. Swimming pool was js next to my suite n was v well-maintained. Restaurant serves decent food at reasonable prices. Staff is well-behaved n professional. Amenities are 5-star. The property is 1 of the best in Goa. Definitely recommend a stay here, at least 2-3 days, if not more.

I Booked a Sea Facing Villa. And Room Which i was given while i checked in was not a sea facing room”
I Booked and i paid for a Sea Facing Room. And the Room Which I was given while I checked in was not a sea facing room it was just a basic garden facing room. I wasn't given any compensation for that. Forget about any apology. i Just ended up making my wife upset because we didn't get what we where promised by agoda or say the resort. And the only purpose for us to come Goa was to stay in a Proper Beach Facing room for which i paid and had a conformation for the same but what i got while check-in was "Sir we don't have any beach facing room available right now, you will have to take a normal one." If i knew that the aggressive pricing by agoda invites unpleasant surprises while checking-in then i would had never booked. Its a Seafacing resort but only a few rooms have a actual seafacing view.

Beautiful Resort”
This resort is one of the prettiest we have ever seen in India. The lawn, the coconuts trees, the swimming pool the decorations around the lawn is well thought out. Very pretty. It is so close to the beach and the walk path to the beach is lovely. The receptionists were very helpful and very accommodating to the best of their abilities. The restaurant has good tasting food, however breakfast was not that great. The waiters are a little out of their service element. Only one waiter was good - the rest are not service oriented. They like to hurdled together doing their own stuff. We would have loved the wifi to be better - much better. It was too slow and keep dropping frequently. The other thing was the blackouts - it happened a few times while we were in the room. Sadly on our last day just before checking the resort had some water problems and we couldn't shower. We spoke to the nice receptionist and she said there was a pipe burst down the road or something to that effect and the hotel was working on it. She decided to sent us a pail of water to shower before we had to leave. We were pleasantly grateful to her and her decision. In spite of all this I do recommend staying here. Also like to mention that the resort have drivers waiting outside in queue to take you around Goa. We had a driver named John D'Souza - he is an excellent driver, very knowledgeable and have a chat with him on things to do in Goa. He is pretty good. The next time, we will let him tailor our day, giving him a picture of what we would like to do.
