Great for the hearing impaired
The resort is clean and lovely, however it has the misfortune to be between two LOUD LOUD LOUD discos that go to 4:30 a.m. I saw that a reviewer said it was quiet and I just was shocked -- the vibrations from the bass was reverberating in our room. I have photos of our children on the beach at 3am because no one was sleeping. The food and staff were very good. If you are a spring breaker this would be a great place to stay. If you are a family go up the beach.
What a great place!
The Riviera is a really great place to stay. My 2 biggest priorities are safety and cleanliness when I travel and the Riviera excels in both.
The staff and facilities continue to go beyond my expectations.
I've been going to Mazatlan for several years and continue to stay at the Riviera. I love a place that goes above and beyond to make their customers happy. I don't know if I'm ever happier than when I'm in Mazatlan!
I Felt So Spoiled
I very much enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were clean and very functional. The staff was all very friendly and very helpful. We did do the all inclusive. That I'm not sure if I would do again. The food was good, the drinks were good but there were so many cheap and good restaurants around the hotel you felt a little confined to the restaurant sometimes. The spaghetti was good, we ate that quite a few nights, but the menu was somewhat limited and more choice would have been nice. The prices were quite reasonable and if you want to spend your days at the pool or beach having drinks the all inclusive is the way to go. I would stay at this hotel again with no hesitation. The beds were a little on the hard side for me. I'm not sure if this is just me or if everyone thought this but they were still comfortable enough that it didn't affect my sleep one bit.
Home away from home
We have been going to this hotel for what will be our 10th year. We have about 10 - 20 in our group every year and it promises to be the best week of the year. The Riviera is without equal in our travel. It is very easy and simple to have a great time at the hotel just doing nothing. The staff is very wonderful and helpful. You feel like they are all there to ensure you have a great time. If you can only go one place each year make it Mazatlan and stay at the Riviera.
We love the Riviera
Me and my family have been going to Mazatlan for the past 9 years and would not stay anyplace other than the Riviera. The staff is without comparison. Mazatlan is known for their friendly folks and the Riv has the best. From top management to the cleaning staff they are tops. We have a group of 10 - 25 go every year and there have been a lot of things happen and the folks at the Riviera have helped us more than a few times. They have done everything to summoning a doctor at the cost of the hotel to aid my sister who had a seizure at a local restaurant and they insisted she see a doctor. We have nothing but good things to say about the Riviera. Last year I brought my then 1 . 4 year old daughter and it was remarkable. By the third day of the trip the entire staff knew her by name and were never in too much of a hurry to stop to try to get a smile out of her. Awesome.
Spring Break 2003
Mazatlan was awesome. Best spring break ever. Highly recommended!
Lock your suit cases
We have been going to mazatlan for 14 years, and have never worried about anyone taking our belongings. we have used this hotel for our children and stayed two days until we could get into our other cond. we just arrived and changed clothes and shoes . then went to eat. we were gone about 45 minutes at Tonys and came back and my husbands new shoes were gone as were my sandals and a sundress. we had had a man knock on our door while we had been changing clothes saying he ws the housekeeping. we told him we were leaving , to give us a few minutes. that is the only thing we could figure,when it happened. they didn't do anything about it but assured us there were no thieves in there hotel. we were pleasant enough and said they must have need shoes worse than us and left it at that.
I am surprised Mazatlan is not considered as one of popular vacation because my friend and I went there for spring break and we had TEARS leaving the city!! The workers in the Golden Zone were unbelievably friendly... and everything in the Golden Zone was just what we needed. It's a place to be. If anyone ever considered taking a vacation to Mexico--- consider Mazatlan!!! Stay at the Riviera Beach Hotel! WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME THERE!
Great week of Rest and Relaxation
The accomadations were very neat and clean, but the best part was probably the staff. Even with numerous students for college Spring Break, the staff was very warm and engaging. They were probably the best part of our stay.
Reasonbly priced, clean and quiet. I enjoyed my stay at the Riviera Beach Resort very much.

I got up about 7:45 am & Barb & Mike were just up making the coffee. We sat out by the pool & enjoyed the cooing of the doves & a beautiful morning with not a cloud in the sky!! We got showered up & ready to go & struck off to have breakfast in the Market area. Restaurant was called we did some sight seeing ...
... are mindful. What the road lacked in quality, the locals had attempted to make up for in beauty. From the turnoff it was 5 more kms and every 20 feet or so the entire length has been planted with bougainvillea of all different colors. It was so beautiful and almost caused us to overlook the garbage dump just outside the town. The smell gave it away. Too bad bougainvillea does not have a scent.

Our trip started with quite a bang. We were only a couple of hours out of La Paz when Patti decided it was time to do some fishing. The sun was out, the wind was light and the sea was calm. Perfect for catching dinner. Rick was below staying out of the sun as Patti grabbed one ...
... I step out of the car, immediately turn into a melting popsicle in this 100 degree heat, and quickly find shelter under the providential tree. At this moment I realize that 1) I am standing 3 feet away from a cemetery, and 2) I am not the only living creature enjoying shade: something moves in the bush – probably a gecko, though it might also be a snake or a scorpion… I don’t want to know, I just want to peeeeeeee!

... everything comes out beautifully. For dinner, we have created shrimp ceviche, tomatillo pasta, and achiote garlic shrimp, served with Rojo Cielo for drinks (beer, clamato, lime, and a dash of pepper in a glass lined with tamarind paste and chili salt on the brim). Yannick finds this coctail so yummy he has 4 glasses -- sans beer for him, of course ;) This is the best dinner we've had on the bicycle trip so far...amazing. Great teamwork! ...
