Not suitable if you want to 'see' local life or surroundings.
Hotel staff not willing to share local knowledge with us that are not part of the golf set.
Accomodation,access to beach, great.
No information avaluable at hotel or locally, thank goodness for a good WiFi access.

We have visited this hotel on four previous occasions. It really suits us, family of five with three boys(18, 16 & 11). The pool is great, rooms great, but the selling point for us is the staff. The are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Praia do Ancao beach is a short walk away, but you do need to have a car to get to most of the other surrounding beach areas of Val do Lobo, Quinta Da Logo etc. Access to restaurants and other amenities in Almancil and further away in Loule would also require a car. Overall, a good location, scenic and picturesque, with fantastic views of Ria Formosa and the sea. A very quiet hotel making for an enjoyable, pleasant family holiday.

"Superior apartment in quiet setting close to beach"
We arrived early morning and were allowed to check in early. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Fresh bread delivered daily. Spacious apartment that met our E xpectations. In September pool was quiet and always plenty of sun loungers. Excellent restaurant and gym. Would definately return

Excellent hotel and breakfast.
Room view over the hotel is worth it and the service is the best.
I will return as truly luxurious and the area is beautiful.
There are a few shops nearby and restaurants but other than that you will have to get a cab to other areas.
Well worth a visit

Just arrived back after a most pleasant stay at the Ria Park Hotel. All the staff were friendly and most intentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel itself was clean and tidy and the pool area was surrounded by palm trees and we spent many a relaxing time under them along side of the pool. The only downside, if any, I would suggest hiring a vehicle as it is in a residential area and we had to hire taxis to get to the various places to visit. I would highly recommend the Ria Park Hotel.

Just 15 minutes from the airport in Faro, the small town of Almancil is typical of the Algarve and known for its local pottery. However, Almancil is best known for being close to the top-end resorts Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, which offer luxury accommodation, top-notch food, and excellent golf.
