Visited in June with my daughters, lovely hotel with beautiful grounds by the pool area. Walking distance to the beach and the hotel also provides a shuttle service. Great buffet breakfast and lots of great restaurants nearby.

Relaxing and enjoyable stay
The hotel is very nice, the pool is fantastic, it was a very relaxing stay. The front desk were very helpful too. It's a short drive to the beach and to restaurants, which are very pricey.

Nice hotel, nice stay but not 5 Star.
Although I have rated Ria Park 3 out of five, the hotel was an acceptable stay, clean, tidy and the staff were great. But I would not consider this a 5 Star hotel based on my other experiences. I would suggest 4 star being a more suitable, for example; Having to pay for the hire beach sun loungers at private hotel beach No Iron or Ironing Board in Room so only laundry service (at a cost) Average Breakfast, no food cooked to order No pool side service
