We had an unforgettable stay at the REX hotel. This is a 3 star hotel with 5 star standards!
Prior to arriving to Rex our email correspondence with Franco, the owner, was extremely cordial and accommodating. We were going to Riccione to attend a 3-day sporting event. With our early evening arrival we noticed that Rex is located right on the beach front with a pedestrian area, no busy road to cross, no noise and ample parking. We were warmly greeted at the front desk, an airy entrance with views. Our 3rd floor sea view room, was neat and extremely clean, including the bathroom with hair dryer, toiletries, soft thick towels. Comfortable cotton sheets too! Plenty of closet space. Breakfast is buffet style, served downstairs, with a wide selection of fresh sweet and savory options also including plenty tasty fresh fruits, yogurt, muesli etc Any type of coffee you request is made for you and served at your table by two friendly and efficient attendants who are at your service and replenishing the buffet. Although we did not have young children, there is a play area conveniently located off breakfast area so the it never gets too busy or noisy. During our stay there were all age families and couples. Lunch and dinner are served upstairs in a large luminous room, if you don't want to bother with going out the cuisine at Rex is delicious. Our stay was so comfortable that we opted for the half board option on the second day. In addition to the menu options it offers a large salad bar as well as fresh grilled and roasted veggies. The Rex is a real 'find' in an otherwise touristy area. It is a self sufficient gem of a place driven also by it's family history, it's not just any hotel, this is visible by the care, attention and friendly expertise of the staff. Franco's great grandfather started the Rex hotel, there is a well done picture book of the the Rex story, and an exquisite display of wall photos of it's history. I think that is why they genuinely care for the customer at Rex...friendly professional service, fresh food and comfortable accommodation. Hospitality and high standards in service, have been part of their family culture. When we go back to Riccione it is the only place we would stay and recommend. Feels like we have family there.

Room Tip: Front and side rooms have seaviews.

I stayed here for a week with my husband and son. The position, right opposite a well-kept beach is perfect and the distance from the promenade and shopping areas is also very convenient. The hotel is, I think, old but has been fully refurbished and everything is modern and well-kept. The owners, reception and waiting staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The food was really excellent (we are all good food lovers) with a varied buffet antipasto which included all sorts of cooked dishes and fresh vegetables and the menu was very varied with lots of fresh fish and some creative as well as simple dishes. Breakfast is perfect in terms of variety - with some organic offerings and a good selection of cured meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, jams and ESPECIALLY lots of fresh fruit which is extremely welcome. Our compliments to the chef who really was careful about what and how he served it. There was some dust under the beds but the chamber-maid resolved the problem directly when I mentioned it to her. The only real down side was the fact that for three of us a double room was a bit tight and there wasn't really enough cupboard or drawer space. Other than that, we really had a lovely stay.

Excellent Hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Right on the beach and close to all the restaurants and shopping area. Epic cake selection, pastry, cold italian meats, cheese ect.
clean room with free sky sports, exactly as shown on the website.
We will be returning to the Rex Hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 3rd floor with no sea room {this was made clear on booking} it was nice and quite, very clean and practical with a safe and mini fridge.

The three stars should not confuse!!! This is an excellent front-line hotel in a wonderful location in Riccione. It is a family-run business driven by knowledgable and friendly staff. Customers are indeed in focus. For example, you will see one of the managers walking around with a polite smile in the canteen and serving drinks along with the waiters - a clear sign showing that the management cares for their business and the well-being of the customers.
We chose for the all-inclusive package which means a full board (meals 3 times a day), reserved sunbeds and an umbrella on the beach and welcome drinks. Parking is also available for EUR 8/day. The amount, the quality and the varieties of food are distinctly superior. Cleaning the room twice a day is another asset worth mentioning.
The town itself offers quite a few places of interest, particularly for children (e.g. italia in miniature, oltremare, etc.)
On the whole, we were very pleased with the hotel and would definitely recommend it to others as well.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view - lateral or front.

We stayed in Riccione for 8 nights during the world masters swimming championships and enjoyed our stay very much. We were able to use the hotel bicycles every day to access the pool, and walked to restaurants all within a short distance. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and included 'a daily lesson in Italian' for free. Our room at the front of the hotel had a large balcony and although it was a modest size inside it had all we needed. We would happily return.
