I stayed at the Ria Park Hotel and Spa for 6 days in August 2014. At first glance, this is a nice enough looking hotel. The lobby is very open, clean and inviting. I had arrived late in the evening, and the night staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. After checking in and looking around a bit more, you start... More

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of August 2014. Every staff member we met during our stay was so accommodating and professional. The food was so good In the hotel restaurant that we only left the hotel on one occasion for dinner and actually regretted it and didn't leave again! The breakfast was a buffet... More

We had a family holiday here last week. The staff are great and very attentive. The room was really spacious even with an extra bed for my son. Everything was very clean. My only slight problem was the wifi as it was really bad and the lack of English tv channels for children, although we didnt really spend very much... More

Just returned from a five night stay at the Ria Park Hotel. This is a wonderful hotel for anyone looking for a discreet, luxurious break, away from the madding crowd. Service is top notch (although very slow), formal and the atmosphere quiet - if you are looking for any sort of entertainment or other places nearby to eat, you will... More

At first glance this looks like a decent hotel with excellent reviews however what we found was the complete opposite. The main issue here is the atmosphere- there isn't any. Short staffed we have waited 20 minutes for a drink. You go to the bar and you are told to sit- only to wait for ages for someone to come... More

I just stayed 3 nights in Ria Park Garden Hotel, that I booked online. Please beaware that Ria Park 5-star hotel is different from Ria Park 4-star! This last one is using Ria Park branding and probably being used as an overbooking customer deposit! At least this is the only reason I find for opening an hotel only during August... More

Just back from a most enjoyable 3 night stay in the Ria Park Hotel & Spa. Accidentally booked Ria Park Garden which is part of the same group but not as high quality as Hotel & Spa. We only realised this on arrival. I asked to upgrade to the Ria Park Hotel and was told that it was no problem... More

Just returned from two night stay. We were hugely impressed with the service and the friendly atmosphere within the hotel. The staff really wanted us to have the best experience possible and went out of their way to achieve that. Breakfast very good, nice frequent shuttle bus for the two minute drive to the beach, pool excellent. Good air conditioning.... More
