Definitely 4 star maximum !!!! Stayed here for 7 nights. Positives......nice building, very clean, comfortable & quiet. Negatives.......apart from the guys on the door who also drove the beach shuttle bus who were amazingly friendly the rest of the staff were pretty miserable (especially the waitress in the pool-side restaurant, had lunch every day, don't think she smiled once !!!)...

While I read many reviews of Ria Park, some good and some not so good, my wife and I were really pleased with everything about the hotel. We stayed in room 239 which only had a view of the car park but since we didn't spend much time in the room that was OK. It looks like the room has... More

Just dropped in for a nightcap to this beautiful hotel Miguel the bartender is a Master and a credit to Portugal as he promotes local drinks to perfection. Well worth a visit. The pianist is also superb

Save your money travellers! Go elsewhere. That is unless you like service with a scowl and poor service. From breakfast waiters (we actually told them it might be an idea to smile) to room service who will tell you " we are busy right now" when asked for milk that had not been delivered. The pool boy is not there... More

This describes our visit where we had booked for 10 days. We were lucky In that we had booked a de luxe room with a sea view, expensive yes, but the alternative to be overlooking the car park is unthinkable. The pool was really lovely surrounded by Palm trees and looked exotic. The sun beds were comfortable and the pool... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff are amazing so attentive, kind and helpful. I had my one year old son with me and never once did they allow me to carry a bag, they went out of their way for you and made you feel so welcome. The outdoor pool was fabulous and was never over crowded. The hotels... More

I loved this hotel from the second I arrived, it looks gorgeous and exactly like what you see in the photos. The rooms are large and full of everything you need and the whole hotel feels new and clean. The pool is large and welcoming and has an extremely relaxed feel with plenty of foliage. There are plenty of sunbeds... More

WoW loved it sooooo much, it was our anniversary, and we were given, Champagne, and Strawberry's, went to the reception, to say thank you. Vale Do Lobo is now my favourite part of the Algarve, and also the surrounding area, we loved it that much, we are looking into living out there. Breakfast was delicious. Definitely a 5*

What a great hotel never seemed crowded the first hotel I have been too where you can choose a sun bed at the pool. Friendly hotel staff from reception to pool and in all restaurants.
