From memory the Riviera is up close to the busy road - the Pez Espada is not - also see www.medplaya.com

I would say the Pez, in a better location if for nothing else. Check the reviews for both and then weigh them up.

Do not know about the Pez Espada but have stayed many times in the Riviera, which is a very comfortable hotel and does not accept children under the age of 16. As you are going at half term this might be a consideration.

If you want a spanish flavour to your holidays only one choice the Pez Espada based on the carihuela the old fishing village of torremolinos. The Riviera is in Benalmadena a very english resort in spain. A 30 minute walk along the front between either hotel so you can visit both areas whereever you stay.
