We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our holiday in Portugal. The hotel was luxurious and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was a great size with plenty of space around the pool to relax.

I must admit, I have to agree with Carl2535, this hotel is very quiet, but has very clean spacious rooms. We stayed in "B" block room 714 and only accessed Ria Park Garden on arrival and departing. We were a short walk away from the Hotel, so accessed our half board there. The lobby bar was quiet. The restaurant staff... More

We stayed overnight prior to moving onto an apartment that we had booked elsewhere. It was ok but it's not a 4 Star hotel. The room was pleasant and clean, but no tea / coffee making facilities. The staff at breakfast were terse and people appeared to be smoking at any point in the restaurant (I cannot abide this). When... More

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

Try not to be put off by all the bad reviews. This Hotel is clean and great for a relaxing holiday. The rooms are very spacious and have a separate twin bedded room if you book a family room. 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
