"I booked the Hotel Select for a long-planned trip to Riccione, based on the reviews here. And I'm not sorry I did! What a wonderful hotel. I stayed for 5 nights in Room 42. The hotel was still being renovated while I was there although it was almost finished by the time I left. The room was quite small but it was spotlessly clean, as was the entire hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable with nice bed linen. There was free wi-fi which was excellent, and the bathroom although small was lovely with a great shower. The room had a great view of the sea which was obscured by the scaffolding while I was there... but the scaffolding will be gone by now!
The staff were absolutely fantastic...they really could not do enough for you. The restaurant staff were especially good. I stayed half-board in a "Venere" room which included breakfast, dinner, water, coffee and wine with meals and coffee at the bar. The food was of a better standard than most restaurants...it was a buffet and you could eat as much as you wanted! The reception staff were also great...when I was leaving the hotel I asked them if they could phone me a taxi and they gave me a lift to the airport in their free hotel minibus.
The hotel has a beautiful Spa which I used during my stay. It has a swimming pool, sauna, turkish bath, salt cave and a relaxation area with fruit, tea and juice. I was in the Spa for nearly three hours and it was a lovely experience.
I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel Select again. When I left the scaffolding was being taken down and the hotel was starting to look really beautiful. The minibus driver asked me if I was coming back in the Summer and I really wish I was! The town of Riccione is beautiful as well and I really did not want to leave. I can't wait to go back to this lovely hotel and beautiful Riccione."
