We stayed at the Ria park in July/August 2014 and had a great stay so we booked again for 2015 but we decided to go in September (just outside the season). I have to say that I was very disappointed this time, mainly because of the restaurant but also the fact that even though the hotel was not full, the... More

Arrived to find the hotel closed !!! There was a sign on the door telling me to go to the Ria Park hotel. Same company but it would have been nice to have been told in an email. Just be aware if you book this hotel you won't be staying at this hotel. Not sure when it will open again.

An absolute disgrace, treated with complete disdain and rudeness. Fed separately from other guests, food cold and just thrown into buffet. Absolute disgrace. Evidently this is an upmarket hotel but we were treated like steerage passengers from the titanic.

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 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.
