The friend I traveled with is a bit difficult when it comes to hotel rooms – she’s used to have a certain standard whereas I’m quite easy with accommodation. Due to that fact we booked a more exclusive hotel, but to be honest I was the one being disappointed. First of all the room looked quite old – it was clean, the shower and toilet worked fine, but I expected something more. The breakfast they offered was okay - a lot of sweet and savory dishes to choose from – I especially enjoyed the pancakes with chocolate. But the coffee and croissants were disappointing. The taste of the coffee was just dull and the croissants were small and dry. My friend and I wanted to enjoy one day at the spa, but they charge EUR 6,00 per person for “renting” a bathrobe and without bathrobe you are not allowed to enter the spa. I think a 4 star superior hotel should provide bathrobes and slippers free of charge. We would have booked massages, but we didn’t want to use the spa under these conditions. Furthermore at check-out the lady at the reception was rather unfriendly.

The hotel is nice and it has a great location in Portorož. The staff was also nice and friendly. Breakfast and pool are also ok. Worth the 4* overall. I wasn't fortunate enough to get a room with balcony and ocean view but didn't care much since I spent most of two days at the business conference. But now the --- When I got to the room there were many, many flies. And they were big! I tried to smack them all but in the morning I found out that there were a lot of them still flying around, disturbing my sleep! I didn't even opened the outside door, so they must have been there before. And someone (cleaning staff) should noticed them before me and do something about it. I hope they will clean the mess (you can see at the photo) and call the exterminator.

This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. It was exceptionally clean, food was great and Im a very picky eater. There is great swimming areas and hot tubs and Jacuzzis something for everyone. The salt water was perfect for me as I have a respitory problem so that was a great bonus even though its not advertised as such. The reception staff were really helpful and all the dining staff efficient and friendly. What more can I say, wonderful views if you pay for a sea view, large room , and what tickled me was there is a red carpet, probably the only time ill walk up one .

Stayed for three nights as part of a tour. All the staff I encountered were helpful and courteous. The location is very central and my room had a great view over the bay. Front rooms can be noisy but that's not unexpected given the location. The room was spacious but there were no drink making facilities and only a very low power hairdryer attached to the bathroom wall. I also found that the room safe is too small to hold a tablet or larger camera - which contrasted with what I found in other similarly rated Slovenian hotels. Hotel has free wi-fi but the connection is too erratic to be useful. In terms of food there was plenty of choice at breakfast although no cooked vegetables to go with other cooked items. I didn't see any fresh coffee but only service station type machines which was surprising for a four star hotel with so many international guests. Dinners again offered plenty of choice although at peak times it feels a bit like a canteen and can take a while to place a drinks order. All in all it does the job of providing a well located and comfortable place to stay but lacks some of the typical features guests expect from a 4*.

This hotel was somewhat disappointing. The room was shabby and the bed uncomfortable. The staff were very helpful, though. It's location is very good and is an ideal base for getting out and about in Portoroz. Steep charges for towels, etc when using the pool.

I have spent a 10 days holiday in the Hotel Riviera, Portoroz (Slovenija) with my Family in the middle of July 2016.The two rooms (one double and one triple) were spatious with fantastic panorama to the see, the outern and intern pools were excellent as usual, the staff were professional (reception, waiters, cleaning women). The half board was absolutly enough and varied every day. You can reach the beautiful Piran by a small local bus in 5-6 minutes. Proposed nearby excursion places are the following: Izola, Koper in Slovenia and Trieste in Italy. Thomas 655

Portoroz is a very busy seaside location. Hotel is on the main road opposite the sea front. Our room was on 8th floor with balcony and sea view which is nice but pay extra for. Not so good if like me you don't like heights and noisy from the road. When doors are shut you can't hear the road noise but the air conditioning unit is very loud. Room large and clean, complete with fridge but no kettle. There is a private beach with sun beds and umbrella but costs 12 euros per day. No beach as such, concrete promenade with steps into the sea which is deep. There is a public man made sandy part but everywhere very busy. Lots of cafes and bars and fab ice creams! The hotel pool is nice, salt water pools and the most vigorous jacuzzis ever known. You have to take room towels with you but best to have own beach towels. You still pay for umbrella by the pool 4 euros a go. Food not bad overall, plenty of choice but feels like large self service rather than special meal. Not a great deal to do in Portoroz unlike Lake Bled.however local bus , outside hotel, only cost 3 euros each to go to neighbouring Piran. Well worth visiting for the day. Again no beach but very venitian style, alleyways with shops, main square to sit and drink and people watch. Not visited salt pans yet, attempted walking there but got lost.despite lots of boats about day trips onboard are very costly. Otherwise costs are reasonable to eat out, slightly less than back home. Seen lots of injured folk about, not ideal for those with limited mobility. Hotel has a Thai massage and beauty centre, 50 minute massage for 51 euros. You also have access to their thermal spa and wellness centre but again you pay extra for treatments.

the foyer looks great the rooms are renovated and the breakfast was nice but apart form that is was a little ordinary and well over priced for what you got. i am not sure if there is any better in town but not sure i would go back there anyway as it is a little over commercialised

Reception were very friendly and spoke good English even though we were the only English staying there..... Room was clean, shower and bathroom good. Not many places to sit and relax after meal etc. The breakfasts were really good but the evening meal choice was poor. We had to sit next to a foreign couple every night for our evening meal which was awkward as they couldn't speak English and we couldn't speak their language! We never used the spa facilities but would have had to "rent" the robes which we objected to. Well situated at the end of Portoroz leading to a nice sea walk to Piran. Once we found the bus station we went to Izola and Koper very cheaply .

I stayed at the hotel Riviera between June 12th - June 15th 2016. I think that the hotel is quite overrated. The restaurant is of medium quality. Many limitations are present in the use of the facilities that are claimed to be available. The gym is not attached to the main building and there is a 100 mt walk to do to get there (as a matter of fact the gym is within the Grand Hotel Portoroz) and it can be used for free only between 9 and 1 pm. Other services like the sauna are not included in the hotel rent. Finally, the room cleaning service is poor on many aspects (i.e. towel change, shampoo, soaps top-up, glass change). The room is not as comfortable as you would expect in 4 star superior hotel: the bathroom is small, the hair drier is old and noisy.
