We arrived home 13/09.

Simple hotel. Beautiful garden, rooms are divided in some sorts of bungalows. Everything is white and blue, which gives you a sense of calmness. The room itself was big enough, with a small terrace with garden view. Bathroom was small, the shower had no curtain which made quite a mess when you took a bath. Also the drain was clogged...

Rivari is only 10 minutes from the airport so a really quick transfer. It looks nice and big from the front. Only a 10 minute walk to Kamari beach front which was nice. Felt really safe walking around at night and the hotel keeps doors open all night so you don't need to worry about being locked out! Reception area...

I've just come back (today) from Rivari and can happily say that it was the most perfect break. Yes, the weather was spectacular and I will always love Greece but Hotel Rivari was really fantastic. Bougainvillea and grapevines everywhere, a lush garden with pomegranate, pear and lime trees as well as beautiful succulents and leafy plants. The main reception and...

Although there's is a slight walk to the beach front to the restaurants, I can recommend this hotel. The pool is lovely with plenty of sunbeds.. No need to rush after breakfast. The breakfast is ok... One warning, if the milk tastes funny it's because it's long life and they store it in kitchen... However their kitchen, like other kitchens...
