First of all, I have to admit, that I am not a big fun of club resorts and All Inclusive/ Full board hotels. So in few points, my opinion would not be appropriate for one, who like this type of holidays.
Nevertheless, Club Robinson Quinta da Ria is the best club resorts I have ever been to. It is more stylish, has better food and it is beautifully located away from congested and loud tourists spots. It lures upmarket clientele - people that expect more than just lots of food, lots of alcohol, sun and beach, that is a typical demand of mid-range all inclusive resorts quests.
RESORT AND LOCATION
This is one of the strongest points of this resort. The hotel is big, but located on very big ground, so you do not feel it's size. The architecture as well as gardens are modern and stylish.
The hotel is located away from cities and other hotels, located between golf courses and fields. It is an excellent for nature lovers and people who seek peace and nice views.
The hotel is located ca. 500 meters from a beautiful beach of Ria Formosa.
Within 2 km distance there are 2 small villages with few local restaurants: Fabrica and beautiful Cacela Vehla. I strongly recommend a simple seafood restaurant just opposite to the church in Cacela Vehla - if you like authentic, local dining.
We stayed in standard double. The room was nicely decorated, but nothing special. It was very clean and comfortable. What surprised us very positively is a separate WC and a wardrobe, that are not standard in other hotels. Unfortunately the air conditioning was not efficient at all.
I am not a fun of buffet dining. I prefer a la carte much more. But for a buffet standards, the food at the hotel was good. There were even few very good dishes like grilled sardines, local clams and oysters. There were also some dishes that were really bad like pasta with gorgonzola without any gorgonzola but with cheap blue cheese instead, most of the meat was dry and tough. The complimentary wine is drinkable, but not good.
Service is very good. People are nice and friendly and spoke excellent English and German.
ANIMATION AND ENTERTAINMENT
The hotel provides a very wide variety of sports and animation. I do not like hotels animation, so I will not value it. There are also many sports activities: Golf, biking (good quality CUBE bikes are available), aerobic, yoga etc. There is one medium size pool and one kids pool as well as one indoor pool.
To conclude, if you seek club resort in natural, peaceful location with upmarket touch, this is a really good choice.
