Fodor's Review

This hotel is a stone's throw from the beach, and like the adjacent casino, it's designed in the art-deco style of the 1930s, which is in keeping with some of Durban's architectural heritage. The rooms are rather small, elegantly minimalist with furnishings in pastel shades. The sea views from the higher floors are spectacular (sea-facing rooms are slightly more expensive but worth it). The hotel mostly attracts business people and gamblers. Mediterranean cuisine is a

speciality at The Riviera, but look out for local favorites as an option; for a more relaxed setting, cocktails are de rigueur at The Bar. The 36 suites in the towers are more luxuriously appointed than those in the hotel.
