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

Possibly this is a lovely hotel but despite having confirmations through hotels.com of my reservation and my taking the trouble to advise reception that I would be arriving late (after 11pm) I arrived in a taxi to find the hotel was completely closed. Although I was accommodated in another hotel of the group which was lovely, I was given no... More

We stayed at the Ria Park Garden Hotel for a short break in August, just for a few days. Found the hotel quiet and relaxing, but only a few minutes walk (Or shuttle bus ride) from the beach. As our stay was a short one we spent most of our time down at the beach and only ate breakfast at... More

Hotel has nice rooms (we had a family room), pool is quite nice but unfortunately no view of sea (and is middle of quite deserted holdiay area). Food was very average - very mediocre buffet at night. Beach is lovely, only 5 minute shuttle, but as wehave small kids we had to have lunch at the hotel pool bar. This... More

Put in this hotel while waiting flights as partner had had operation. Had to ask for room service, still waiting for breakfast in spite of paying full price! I suspect snobbish staff are waiting for tips! No ATM for miles so you need a car.

We stayed at the Ria park at the end of a villa holiday. We booked a seaview room and when we arrived the seaview room was if you went outside on to the balcony and looked around the corner!! All seaviews are like this so really don't bother with it - the rooms all over look the hills! The bathroom... More
