Had a really good family fun filled holiday
A wonderful place to relax. We are getting ready for our third visit to this little oasis. The only thing wrong with our visits are that we have to leave for home at some point. We have made new friends here as people love this place so much they keep coming back. I look forward to seeing our friends when we get back. The rooms are extremely clean and neat. The grounds are immacualte thanks to John's fine efforts. You will greeted upon arrival by Jenny and will immediately feel like you've come to your second home. this one's worth the trip. Don't miss it! I know I won't!

Hey lets just start off with saying they are DOG FRIENDLY, We got into Fla on a wensday night, and couldn't find A PLACE THAT TOOK DOGS. We called Rivera Beach Resort, and our vacation turned arround. We reached the resort and had the best time we could ever think of having. The owners of the resort are two of the niicest people that you could ever want to meet. They go out of the way to make sure that their guests are satisfied. You couldn't ask for more beautiful Landscaping, and the apartments are kept in immaculate condition.The Rivera Beach Resort is our new HOME AWAY FROM HOME. And we recommend it to anyone wishing to have a good stay in Longboat Key...We'll Definately be back.Thanks Jeni and JohnKen Tim Mercadeze and Jag
After visiting the riveria for the day over last christmas, I had to visit again for my summer holiday. The Riveria is a little bit of heaven. The appartments and the grounds are immaculate. The White sandy priviate beach is perfect.
The owners can't do enough to make your stay a very happy one. The other guests in this little community were wonderful, I made two very good friends, and hope to see them at the Riveria very soon.
Heaven on earth
My family had the most wonderful time here this year. The lush palms, the clean white sand, the beautiful ocean and the real friendly welcome. We won't go any where else... ever!
Affordable confort & serenity
We love this lush tropical quiet setting on a beautiful beach. They make you feel at home and wish you could stay everytime! We are going back again for a 3rd time! We recommend it highly! THANKS, FUN N DA SUN TOURS & TRAVEL.
What an awesome place to spend a few days, whether with children or on a romantic getaway. The owners are very sweeet and courteous, and you feel as if you're living in a little community a short walk from the beach, even if only for a day or two!
