Visited the Ria park hotel for a break with the wife and arrived early from our flight, although checkin was from 2pm we were allocated our room early and used the services in the hotel. The lobby is grand and the check in was easy and staff very polite. The hotel is located in a lovely complex in vale da... More

An extremely comfortable four days spent in this spotlessly clean, efficiently run hotel. The most outstanding feature were the staff for whom nothing was too much trouble & everything possible. The buffet breakfast was above average & Al a carte evening meal surprisingly good even if on the more limited half board menu.

I took a tennis and yoga group to the hotel and a shuttle bus took us to the vale do lobo tennis academy daily with 5 star tennis holidays. The combination worked very well and we based our accommodation on half board which was excellent as the food was very varied and tasty. The staff throughout the hotel could not... More

stayed here whilst visiting Vale de Lobo Tennis Academy with a group from my tennis club including our own coach for 5 days of tennis 'bootcamp'. What a fantastic hotel! Fantastic staff, breakfast was amazing with lots of choices and plenty of staff on hand all the time to clear away and keep topping up food selection. Our first night... More

Stayed for 4 days due to French air traffic controllers strike. We were not made to feel welcome at all on our arrival and were shunted into a villa room out the back and across a road which had obviously not been aired or occupied in months. We had no hot water and this took 2 days to sort out.... More

Made an unscheduled 3 night stay at this well appointed hotel and cannot praise enough. The overall quality and facilities certainly live up to its 5 Star status. The best 5 star rating however would be the staff. They came under fire from many a disgruntled guest who had been 'left' there by airlines due to a strike but they... More

Due to 'air traffic strike' we were 'stranded' in Portugal for 4 days. The airline paid for us to stay at the Ria Park. The staff were so helpful and accommodating considering the pressure they were under at silly o'clock to place everyone. The rooms were spacious and it was a delightful interlude.

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
