This hotel maybe OK in the height of summer...but is grim at other times The hotel is right on the long sandy beach but appears to be at the end of a road with nothing else much about apart from a few small hotels Pull up outside and your heart will sink...the rooms facing the pool don't look that bad...

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. I am sorry that your experience was less than you anticipated.

We stayed here two nights as part of a tour of New England. Unfortunately the weather was rather poor. We had a great welcome from the friendly and helpful staff .

Check in went really easy and the receptionists were very helpfull. After visiting our room we came to the conclusion that all was fine; a large room that may be a bit outdated but all worked well and was really clean.

The resort is located right on Nantucket Sound. The beaches are beautiful! The staff was very professional and polite. The room was comfortable, and had all the necessities although a coffee machine would have been nice. Overall, for the value, it was a great place to stay!

The grounds are beautiful. The staff is friendly and extremely professional. The front desk staff was informative and took time to explain the benefits of the resort.

I stayed at the Riviera Beach resort for 2 nights this August with my husband, teen daughter and 4 year old son.
