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

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
