I had an exceptional stay here. The general director, Mr. Ignacio, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and offered me suggestions on what to do as a solo traveler who enjoys going off the beaten path in such of an authentic experience. I enjoy a tasty breakfast overlooking the river from the top balcony. The entire staff was very kind...

Fabulous in every way. The staff and management were amazing. Would definitely go back again. They greet you with fresh wash clothes, Margaritas, and chips and guacamole! A wonderful breakfast is also included. Ignacio was very welcoming and helped us with reservations for dinner. They paid attention to details. The suite we were in had luxurious bedding and the bath...

I planned this trip for a surprise for my daughters b-day. With all the help from Rocia it made it all the more special. Rocia recommended the Cortes suite which was outstanding. Rocia made special b-day signs starting at the airport found the best red velvet b-day cake. What I didn't know was Rocia works off site and we only...

This is my second visit to the Rivera Del Rio - and it was just as amazing as the first. The hotel has continued its great maintenance and even has improved since I visited years ago. The hot tub still is as amazing as ever and salt water based. The cleaning staff ensured my room was completely clean each day....

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. The building is eclectic and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. In some parts (especially the pool area) it looks like something out of a Duran Duran music video. If you value privacy, this is the place for you. It is definitely not for kids though due to the many staircases...

Wonderful time. The Villa that saw Elizabeth Taylor and Kevin Costner while in town provided personal service and jungle trip planning as well as relaxing massage and breakfast. It is an oasis on a back street where the real people of the town live and laugh and play in the rain. The staff arranged for a fantastic over the top...

Everything that everyone said about this place is spot on. Great B&B, so unique and overall it is wonderful. I can't really think of anything that I don't like about this place. Staff and service was excellent.

This place was soo nice , it's a couple blocks from Garlands but it feels so private. The staff is always on call but they aren't in your face trying to sell you anything. I felt like I was coming home nightly to my private castle. Garlands is a little bit more social and Rivera is a little more exclusive

Rivera del Rio exceeded our expectations! We loved the greeting by Oscar with guacamole and margaritas. Nice touch. Breakfast each morning on the little bar facing the Cuale River was wonderful. Our room, the Cortez Suite, was massive on five levels with two bathrooms. The entrance is on the street level which is convenient. The rooms were beautifully decorated in...

This was my third time staying at Rivera del Rio. It didn't disappoint! The location in the heart of PV's Romantica Zone is perfect for the traveler who wants to mix with the natives instead of staying in some huge insular resort. I've stayed here in the spring, summer, and now fall. It was the end of the rainy season,...
