We were booked in the sister hotel - Ria Park Garden but were delighted when we arrived to be upgraded to the Ria Park Hotel and Spa due to the Ria Park Garden being closed for a refurb. A very welcome sight of a beautiful hotel after a nightmare transfer from the airport by a taxi driver who didnt even know the area let alone the hotel !! Anyway, the Hotel is stunning , very clean and excellent staff, especially the reception staff who were always very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are lovely and well equipped - apart from having no Iron or tea making facilities. Pool area great with free supply of lovely clean towels. The only down side was the very expensive cost of food and drinks ( eat as much of the lovely breakfast buffet was the order of the day!) and taxi's to get anywhere, just glad we were with loads of people that we knew and didnt have to stray too far as the taxi fares were extortionate :( Short walk to the beach and bars and the hotel provides a courtesy bus to the beach and back all day for those who require it. All in all a lovely holiday - would definately return.
