The room was large and comfortable with a large bath, the parking was on site and convenient and safe and they were quick to answer any questions and... More

I had some trepidation before we arrived that this five star hotel had a few negative reviews...however, in our experience this hotel was excellent. Quality of staff was first class - always helpful, fantastic... More

This is a lovely hotel with nice facilities. We choose this hotel as we like the beach that is local and the Quinta shopping area, we have stayed in this area many times before but always in privately rented villas but as this was only a long weekend thought hotel was the better option. The staff were very friendly and... More

It was a nice experience to stay at the Ria Park. Everything was fine with a helpful staff with all the request we had. The beach with a few restaurant is in walking distance, but a shuttle drives their on request on short notice. The beach is wonderful.

This is a traditional hotel, nicely located in vale do lobo. The beach is 10 mins walk, but the hotel has a bus that take people in and out of the beach every 30 minutes. Rooms are big and confortable but a bit old for my style. Be aware that not all the rooms are located within the hotel. Some... More
