From the moment I checked in, I felt like royalty! from bell boy to check in, I was addressed by my name. It was evening and I was tired, and was asked if I would like them to book dinner for me in the hotel, I did. It was amazing - atmosphere, food, ambiance, brilliant service. I stayed for 4... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 7 years and it is always first class. The food is excellent, both the very varied and delicious breakfast to the superb dinner, which is excellent value at 35 euros for four courses plus amuse bouche. The staff you will always remember like they remember you, especially Fernando !!... More

We stayed in the Ria Park Hotel for 3 nights in mid October. Unfortunately, the weather wasn`t too good, which is quite unusual, even in October for Portugal. This is the 2nd time we`ve stayed in the hotel, we like it very much, a lovely breakfast with so much choice and the staff throughout are very pleasant and helpful. The... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Ria Park, and thought the hotel ticked all the right boxes. We stayed in October, and this might have been the reason for the hotel being very quiet (which we prefer). The weather was not so good - lots of heavy rain, and this resulted in us only being able to... More

This is the first time I have felt the need to write a review for a hotel but it gives me great pleasure to recommend this hotel to anyone. My husband and I spent 10 glorious days and had the most wonderful friendly service from all the staff from the front desk to the cleaning ladies who made sure our... More

We stayed 5 nights in this super hotel in late September, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are wonderful. The hotel is a few hundred yards from an amazing beach and even have a shuttle bus for those who prefer. The breakfast is just what you expect in a hotel of this class,you will want for nothing I...

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights . Room was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Stayed on half board basis and both breakfast and dinner were excellent . Hotel is quiet but that is what we wanted so we could relax and unwind and that is exactly what we did!

Excellent hotel (20 minute cab ride from Faro airport at around 30€) but not quite hitting the full five star expectation. The bedrooms are just OK and not fantastic; they'd benefit from updated furnishings and a touch more luxury. The aircon unit housed on the balcony blows hot air which encroaches on the balcony experience a little. Effective inside the... More
