Ria Park Hotel&Spa
Ranked #5 of 14 Hotels in Almancil
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2006

The hotel is supposedly 5*, but felt more like 3*. However, the food and drink prices were definitely more aligned to the former.

Room was quite small and underequipped (e.g. no tea and coffee facilities). The grounds also were quite cramped, especially by the pool which felt quite claustrophobic.

There is a shuttle service to the beach, which we found to be very unreliable which was inconvenient given young child and pregnant wife.

Beach was probably the saving grace.
