Critic Reviews



A party place built in 1958 and renovated in 2008, the Riviera attracts young, well-heeled, bikini-clad guests who hang out around the pool by day and the Bikini Bar by night.

Travel + Leisure


Celebrity treatment includes the 12,000-square-foot SpaTerre, classic cocktails from the Bikini Bar, Circa 59's prix fixe menu, and the rejuvenating powers of this historic property.


The puzzle-piece-shaped pool is lined with cabanas and lounge beds perfect for posing or people watching. Music, both live and from a DJ, gets the whole place rocking.
