This was the second hotel on our road trip, we spent two nights here, great 3rd floor corner room, good views over the garden and down to the sea, lots of different bars to choose from, parking although secure was not under cover and of course it did rain a little, breakfast was excellent with a great choice, endless good...

Stayed for 4 days due to French air traffic controllers strike. We were not made to feel welcome at all on our arrival and were shunted into a villa room out the back and across a road which had obviously not been aired or occupied in months. We had no hot water and this took 2 days to sort out....

Made an unscheduled 3 night stay at this well appointed hotel and cannot praise enough. The overall quality and facilities certainly live up to its 5 Star status. The best 5 star rating however would be the staff. They came under fire from many a disgruntled guest who had been 'left' there by airlines due to a strike but they...

Due to 'air traffic strike' we were 'stranded' in Portugal for 4 days. The airline paid for us to stay at the Ria Park. The staff were so helpful and accommodating considering the pressure they were under at silly o'clock to place everyone. The rooms were spacious and it was a delightful interlude.

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 7 years and it is always first class. The food is excellent, both the very varied and delicious breakfast to the superb dinner, which is excellent value at 35 euros for four courses plus amuse bouche. The staff you will always remember like they remember you, especially Fernando !!...

We stayed in the Ria Park Hotel for 3 nights in mid October. Unfortunately, the weather wasn`t too good, which is quite unusual, even in October for Portugal.

My wife and I spent a week at the Ria Park, and thought the hotel ticked all the right boxes. We stayed in October, and this might have been the reason for the hotel being very quiet (which we prefer). The weather was not so good - lots of heavy rain, and this resulted in us only being able to...
