8/10 Very good

Good choice for ravellers
This is a good choice for travellers as it’s clean, quiet and comfortable and close to the bus and ferry terminals and with in easy walking distance for sightseeing. Rooms are not large, but they are comfortable. Wifi is good and the breakfast, though not extensive, is enjoyable. The owners and staff obviously take pride the their establishment.

Clean and comfortable small hotel close to ferry
I spent one night at Hotel Rivera and really enjoyed my stay. It's just a short walk away from the bus terminal and ferry station. The historic centre of the city is an easy ten minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel was very clean, staff were really friendly and the buffet breakfast was good. I would definitely stay again.

Great for the price
We had a great experience at this small hotel. The staff was wonderful. Location was fabulous. Everything was walking distance. We decided to have our own lunch at the patio and they set the tables for us! Kudos for this hotel!!

8/10 Very good or the hotel needs to get it together
When we first checked in they didnt have our reservation. Something they have to fix with we had to stay on the phone with for 30 minutes to fix this. In the end I have to say it an OK stay. But the host was amazing.

Fantastic and welcoming hotel just off the ferry
We visited CdS for one night and really loved the town. The hotel is in a great location, just off the ferry, so very easy to access. It's a brief walk in the historic area and all the restaurants and waters edge. The hotel staff were very welcoming and even setup our breakfast in front of our room so we could enjoy the lovely sun. Recommended.
