The hotel is a nice with excellent pool area but was bitterly disappointed with my "Garden View" room. I paid good money to have a garden view and all I got was a road and a tree which apparently 'is' the Garden View?!! Joke! I explained this to Pedro who was in charge of the hotel. The only compensation he... More

The hotel is very quiet with clean spacious rooms. This building is the original Ria Park hotel. The new Hotel is up the hill a few blocks away. It's a good place to relax, that's if you don't mind children playing and yelling around the pool. If your looking for exciting evenings, this is not the place. The lobby bar... More

Yes the better 5 star sister hotel is 15 mins walk away but you don't need to visit this Hotel other... More

I went to Algarve in Aug 2015 for 5 nights with my family. I booked Ria Park Garden hotel through Expedia. Positives: The room is very spacious. Negatives: The room given to us was 15/20 minutes walk from the main hotel and we were not aware of that. The restaurants and the swimming pools were near the main hotel and... More

Enjoyed our stay here. Peaceful and relaxing. Staff friendly and relaxing. Hired off-road bike and cycled on Ria Formosa every day. Room excellent with lovely veranda with garden views we loved. Food excellent. We used shuttle to beach both day and evening as restaurants good and could walk back (20 mins). Breakfasts excellent but need to get there early as... More

We have been put up in this hotel by our incompetent airline Norwegian Air, the hotel is clearly run down and in need of desperate work or knocking down. The hotel is practically empty and it's the second week of June, the grounds are kept but there are so many palm trees it could be a jungle. We were given... More

We stayed there with our 2 children, our villa was about 2m shuttle away from the main hotel. Room was spacious with a minute walk to the pool, really quiet but you could walk to the main hotel. The main hotel "Ria Park and Spa" different to the "Ria Park Garden" was also about 5m walk away from us with... More

We stayed here with our 3 children for a short 4 day break. The hotel is "OK " that's really about it. There is absolutely no customer service, and the hotel reception seem to have an unexplained arrogance about them, are very curt and extremely unhelpful in every aspect, from checking in to checking out. I was also very concerned... More

Not a bad place for the golfing type. We were meant to stay in the Formosa Park Apartments but got bumped a couple of days before arrival to the Ria Park Garden Aparts. Nice, clean, Aircon, a 5-10 min walk to main hotel for breakfast. Good breakfast and staff very attentive. No complaints there. The Keycards stopped working each day... More
