Fodor's Review

This hotel mostly attracts business people and gamblers, but it's a stone's throw from the beach and has some great sea views. 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, but elegantly minimalist with furnishings in pastel shades. The sea views from the higher floors are spectacular (it's worth the slightly higher price for a sea-facing room). Mediterranean cuisine is a speciality at The Riviera, but local favorites are also an option; for a more relaxed setting, cocktails are de rigueur at The Bar. The 36 suites in the towers are more luxurious than those in the hotel.
