We are on of 24 couples staying at the hotel on a golfing holiday. The facilities are very good, the rooms are spacious and the restaurant is also good especially the breakfast.finally the staff could not be more helpful.

Customer service at this hotel is awful. On arrival we proceeded to the reception area to check-in, and we're confronted by Luis Lopes, or should I say Victor Meldrew. What an arrogant and unhelpful person. We had a problem on check-in and there was absolutely zero help from the reception staff. Rooms were very dated, and when they say a...

We booked for four nights, as part of attending a birthday celebration in the area. Our booking was with the Ria Park Garden Hotel, which we had the impression was a smaller annexe, but when we arrived we were expected at the Ria Park itself, which wasn't a problem for us. We had a double room with a sea view...

I really enjoyed my two night stay at this hotel. I had a lovely spotlessly clean room with a very comfortable bed and a distant view of the sea. The reception staff were delightful. So helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to returning in the not too distant future.

Definitely 4 star maximum !!!! Stayed here for 7 nights. Positives......nice building, very clean, comfortable & quiet. Negatives.......apart from the guys on the door who also drove the beach shuttle bus who were amazingly friendly the rest of the staff were pretty miserable (especially the waitress in the pool-side restaurant, had lunch every day, don't think she smiled once !!!)...

While I read many reviews of Ria Park, some good and some not so good, my wife and I were really pleased with everything about the hotel. We stayed in room 239 which only had a view of the car park but since we didn't spend much time in the room that was OK. It looks like the room has...

Just dropped in for a nightcap to this beautiful hotel Miguel the bartender is a Master and a credit to Portugal as he promotes local drinks to perfection. Well worth a visit. The pianist is also superb

Save your money travellers! Go elsewhere. That is unless you like service with a scowl and poor service. From breakfast waiters (we actually told them it might be an idea to smile) to room service who will tell you " we are busy right now" when asked for milk that had not been delivered. The pool boy is not there...
