The hotel is very quiet with clean spacious rooms. This building is the original Ria Park hotel. The new Hotel is up the hill a few blocks away. It's a good place to relax, that's if you don't mind children playing and yelling around the pool. If your looking for exciting evenings, this is not the place. The lobby bar...

Food excellent. We used shuttle to beach both day and evening as restaurants good and could walk back (20 mins). Breakfasts excellent but need to get there early as...

We have been put up in this hotel by our incompetent airline Norwegian Air, the hotel is clearly run down and in need of desperate work or knocking down. The hotel is practically empty and it's the second week of June, the grounds are kept but there are so many palm trees it could be a jungle. We were given...

We stayed here with our 3 children for a short 4 day break. The hotel is "OK " that's really about it. There is absolutely no customer service, and the hotel reception seem to have an unexplained arrogance about them, are very curt and extremely unhelpful in every aspect, from checking in to checking out.

Not a bad place for the golfing type. We were meant to stay in the Formosa Park Apartments but got bumped a couple of days before arrival to the Ria Park Garden Aparts.
