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.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ria Park Garden Hotel - Algarve A relaxing hotel set in decorative gardens within the Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the peaceful atmosphere of its secluded location, it plans to offer good quality accommodation that suits a wide range of holiday makers. The hotel is just 20 minutes away from Faro International Airport situated in Vale do Lobo and 800 meters from a beautiful sandy beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, on the south coast of Portugal. Ria Park Garden Hotel is set among pine trees in the Ria Formosa Natural Park near Quinta do Lago, is ideally placed to take advantage of some of the best beaches and golf courses the Algarve has to offer. The Algarve, with its pleasant climate, is a perfect place for leisure and sports enthusiasts. Golf is particularly high on the list of things to do, and there are numerous golf courses to test even the most ardent player. At the hotel, of course, there are reduced green-fees at most of the vicinity golf courses, available only for our guests. Horse riding facilities are within four kilometers of the hotel, and numerous water sports activities and deep-sea fishing are within ten kilometers. The nearest town, with Roman remains, shops, entertainment and a casino, is Vilamoura, just 12 kilometers away. Estoi (20 kilometers) also has Roman ruins. ... more   less
