        Perfect value for money/ outstanding staff”

        We first stayed at a guest house but wanted a bit more comfort so we were looking at very expensive seaview bungalows. In the end, river top staff showed us the rooms and the hotel and we instantly booked the rooms. The beach with own sunbeds is only 2 mins walking. Sunbeds with matress and shadow on the best beach in Ngapali (no rocks in the water). (Standard) Rooms perfectly clean and sufficient for us to stay 5 nights. Two times housekeeping per day. Also pool is nice and the food in the hotel restaurant is good (try mango smoothie!). Breakfast better than in most other Burmese hotels: you get eggs, toast, jam, fruits, normal bread, cornflakes, cheese and Standard Burmese breakfast. The best is the outstanding staff - they always have a smile and try to do their best to make your stay perfect. Excellent! One of our top two hotels in Myanmar (other was tai house in Hsipaw). Also snorkel trip price was good. We’ll come again for sure!

        Great location”

        Great hotel, I stayed in one of the room which was a good size, clean and all appliances worked well. All staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurant has a great breakfast selection I did have dinner here a few times and the food very tasty. The beach is a short walk and the hotel has it's own sunbeds, it also has a pool with sunbeds, sparkling clean. A number of people have mentioned wifi not working well throught Myanmar but I've not found this in any of the hotels that I've stayed in. I would stay here again, wonderful peaceful pkace and area to end my holiday.

        Look no further... this is a great spot ”

        Located across the street from the beach...1 minute walk. (Staying in the cheaper suites of a resort ‘on the beach’ would be just as far from beach but much more $$$) Very clean rooms with lovely surroundings . Staff are very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was very good with a mix of Asian and Western options. We visited other parts of beach; this is the nicest. Close to many other restaurants and shops. One on the beach (down path and immediately on the left) was very good! Slow because he makes everything à la minutes, but what’s the rush?

        One of the best beach holidays ever”

        If you haven't been to Ngapali Beach, Myanmar, you should definitely go. It's beautiful and not as touristy as many beach destinations and the Burmese are extremely thoughtful and gracious. And if you're a value-conscious traveler like we are, you'll love the Rivertop Lodge. The rates were substantially less than those resorts located directly on the beach, but it's only a 1 minute walk to the beach from the Rivertop Lodge and its facilities are immaculate. The staff is very helpful and friendly, there's a beautiful pool, and the on-site restaurant serves delicious authentic Burmese/Rakhine cuisine, as well as some of our American favorites. The concierge was extremely helpful and booked two of the best snorkeling trips we've ever been on. The listing said the Rivertop Lodge was a 3-star but it was actually more like a 4- to 4.5-star resort. We loved it! When we return to Ngapali Beach we will definitely be staying at the Rivertop Lodge.

        Fantastic Hotel - Highly Recommend”

        Great staff, big clean rooms with great air con and showers. Really good breakfast - any type of eggs you want plus all the usual buffet breakfast stuff. Nice clean pool as well. 100m from the beach, with sun loungers and bamboo umbrellas for guests. Best bit of the beach at the south end, no rocks and great spot to see the sunsets. Near a good selection of restaurants too. Such good value for money and would highly recommend.

        The free beds of the hotel on the beach are good and the hotel is comfortabel. When you have choise do not take the rooms close to the road. That is very noisy from the road and too close at the reception.

        Brilliant location, lovely staff”

        Rivertop Lodge is super close to the beach, and the beach is beautiful! The room was lovely - a good size and super clean. The staff were so friendly and happy to help with airport transfers, booking taxis and organising a fabulous snorkelling trip. The pool was fine - nothing amazing, but great to have. Breakfast was ok - maybe a bit more variety and healthier options eg more fresh fruit, muesli/granola, freshly baked bread, etc would be good. All in all, an excellent stay.

        Excellent deal across the road from the beach”

        We really enjoyed our stay at Rivertop. The manager who has now left there made a huge difference to our visit as she was personable and spoke English so well. All the staff did their best and were smiles. The massage was good. The internet could have been stronger. The breakfast was quite good and they made sure to have vegan options for us which was much appreciated! They have reserved beach chairs and beach towels across the street at the beach. Every hotel is considered with preserving water and the best way to do that is to serve more plant based meals and less fish and animal products as it's better for our health and the environment.

        Very nice hotel close to the beach”

        The rooms are really nice as the furniture is made of beautiful wood. We enjoyed the pool and of course the wonderful beach that is very close. Especially the free airport shuttle was excellent. The Staff was always very friendly and helpful. We had a nice stay! The only thing that was a problem sometimes: we had a lot of moskitos in our room. On the second day we talked to the reception and they sent someone to put a repellant on the walls which helped a lot I wish I would have known about this option in our first night when I got some bites which was really scary regarding health warnings in that area.

        Excellent Clean hotel with pool and beach”

        We thought the staff were so helpful and kind. The room was perfect and cleaned beautifully every morning. The pool is great and the hotel has its own part of the beach with comfortable loungers. We would definitely stay again.

        Superb!”

        Perfect hotel 2 mins from the beach, great value for money; decent breakfast which was slightly different each day. The staff was helpful although not everyone could speak good English. The location is absolutely perfect since there are nice restaurants all around, the hotel restaurant is also great!

        Clean, Friendly small hotel”

        Located just across the road from the beach with free sun loungers on the beach we had a lovely few days here. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was good with western and Asian options including an egg station doing fresh omelettes. Free shuttle to/from the airport also a bonus. Bar area was pretty deserted at lunch dinner but staff err very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help. WiFi is ok, about the same as elsewhere in Myanmar.
