Great Hotel Great location

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

Beautiful location and super-friendly staff
Top place to chill out and stay away from noisy parts of Portugal. Super-friendly staff, hotel very clean not only guests room but in general. Breakfast in the sunny morning is the best thing you can ask for. Great place to re-charge 'batteries', when you don't know what day of the week is then you know you are on great holidays.

Very Good8.0
Family holiday to Vale De Lobo
Great hotel for a short break - 10 minute walk to the beach and excellent seafood restaurants with access to free shuttle service. Good breakfast buffet, free wifi and live piano music in the bar. Have visited several times and will be back.
