The primary role of any hotel let alone a 5-star luxury hotel is to keep their guests and their possessions safe. In the case of Luxury Hotel Riva this they had comprehensively failed in that task. Our 2 teenage sons were asleep in their room and the night porter/security were duped by 2 drunken women that their husband was in our son’s room and the night security took them up to our son’s room and opened the room door for the 2 women to go on in. This was all done without checking if the 2 women knew the ID of the people that were registered in our son’s room or even checking with us who was in the main billing room for our son’s room. Having got into the room they came out having taken the room key from the wall slot and then proceeded to return to the room staying in the room for 10 minutes to rob my sons of their various valuables and credit cards. When I reported this story to the police at the police station, the first police officer commented that he had been working in Krk for a long time and this was the first time he had heard of such a case. It is easy to blame the hapless night porter for such a serious lapse of security if it wasn’t for the fact that he clearly lacked any training as in a meeting with the owners of the hotel after the event it was clear that basic identification of people requesting to be let into rooms without a key was something they still had to put in place.

Amazing stay in this hotel. Great location. Although in a pretty busy area, no noise from outside. The room was extra large, simply decorated, comfortable and clean. Very quiet air conditioning. The restaurant and food is the same great quality. And of course the staff is top as well. Thanks for the stay

The boutique hotel is in an excellent location only 10 meters away from the see and with phantastic sea view. The hotel is decorated nicely and modern. There is an outside and inside pools, sauna and jacuzzi. The personal is very friendly, the menus are excellent with a selection of fresh fish and meat. Food is really outstanding, especially the patisserie. One of the best sacher tart we had in a long time. The massages are also great and the gym is equipped well.

Best boat trip ever from Tom and Niki, very attentive and couldn’t have done more for us, Niki explained every island we went to and even swam with our stuff to the islands so they didn’t get wet 10/10.
