This place claims to be 'ecological'......the only evidence of that were the bamboo cabins. The water that came out of the taps was orange and remained so throughout our stay and tasted of iron. The toilet blocked on a couple of occasions. Whilst the food at Riversand was good, it wasn't cheap - there was far better and cheaper food...

Oh take me back to Riversands!! This was our third (and not last) time staying here. We love it..... always have beachfront hut. Love going back to basics. There's nothing like listening to the sound of the sea on the shore and the most amazing sunset view from your hammock. Bamboo bungalows raised up, large clean bed with mosquito net....

The restaurant is nice located but straff is really rude. We waited 1,5 hour for our food and when asking the waitor he Said "it arrives today". We will not come back and recommend no one to go here for lunch! Really bad!!

Spend a fantastic 8 days here. If you are looking for 5 star/sophisticated accommodation or even air conditioning, look elsewhere. If you want minimalistic then this is it. The staff are friendly and always ready to help. The beach this spot is situated on is shared by only 3 resorts, this River Sand included, giving it a very secluded, uncrowded...

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights. Nice location and quiet. It was a nice experience to live in a simple bugalow.

First I was afraid because it was a guy but finaly he's very kind and look after you very well. The only negative point is the owner : not...

Origina; huts made of straw, thatched roofs, plain plank floors (mind the gaps, little things tend to fall through to the sand underneath ). Huge, comfortable beds, realaxing hammocks on the verandas! Simply paradise! We booked 2 nights and stayed at the ocean view huts. Laying on the hammock and enjoying the magnificent sunset and the sea from your veranda...

The hammocks on the balcponies are...

We stayed in the 'small garden view' bungalows for 9 nights over New Year and it was perfect for us. It was very simple, raised up on stilts, the bungalow was just made of wood and bamboo, with gaps looking down onto the vegetation below. Sometimes we were joined by little insects, but it truly was like being in nature....
