"Having chosen this hotel based on previous tripadvisor reviews, it certainly lived up to our expectations. The food was excellent, especially the buffet dinner, which we chose to have most nights, simply because it was so good (especially the hot pasta dishes) with the menu changing each evening. All of the reception, restaurant and bar staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome, with a surprise card and bottle of champagne on my daughter's birthday. The hotel spa looked beautiful, however, we didn't use it as treatments were expensive, even compared to London spa prices. Riccione itself is a lovely Italian seaside holiday resort (we didn't encounter a single British tourist in 11 days!) with plenty of shopping to tempt you. All in all, we had a great stay at Hotel Select and would highly recommend it."
