We stayed at this hotel for two nights due to our flight being delayed. the rooms are nice and clean, the manager can be rude at times, the reception staff are excellent and the food was of a good standard for buffets, although there didnt appear to be much around the resort but spare ground.

Spent a week there with 3 young children, luckily they were happy to play in the pool all day which was lovely but not much else for them to do. The kids club was a 5 min walk away from the hotel! hotel very clean with nice food but expensive. nice and quiet a very relaxing place to be.

We stayed here for two days as it was convenient for where our friends were staying. It is a comfortable hotel and we stayed in a family suite with two bedrooms which was a lot better than all sleeping in the same room. The suite was large with a nice balcony and quiet. The only drawback was that for security...

We stayed here for 3 nights and chose the hotel after reading revues on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Hotel was clean and our room was huge. Gardens and pool lovely. Family friendly and good mix of nationalities. Hard to fault in any way.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ria Park Garden Hotel - Algarve A relaxing hotel set in decorative gardens within the Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the peaceful atmosphere of its secluded location, it plans to offer good quality accommodation that suits a wide range of holiday makers. The hotel is just 20 minutes away from Faro International Airport situated in Vale do Lobo and 800 meters from a beautiful sandy beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, on the south coast of Portugal. Ria Park Garden Hotel is set among pine trees in the Ria Formosa Natural Park near Quinta do Lago, is ideally placed to take advantage of some of the best beaches and golf courses the Algarve has to offer.

Horse riding facilities are within four kilometers of the hotel, and numerous water sports activities and deep-sea fishing are within ten kilometers. The nearest town, with Roman remains, shops, entertainment and a casino, is Vilamoura, just 12 kilometers away. Estoi (20 kilometers) also has Roman ruins. ... more   less
