Nice pool area, good location

Posted Sep 22, 2016
Pros: location and pool area
Cons: Updating and feeling less stuffy, also, needs a bit of maintenance here and there.
Location: Location good, beach is 10-15 mins walk with nice restaurants.
Nice hotel but needs a bit of love and attention. Needs to feel less formal and stuffy and bringing into the 21st century. Palms by the pool are out of this world, room was lovely and bar area nice. Restaurant was too formal.

Lovely hotel with good facilities

Posted Sep 22, 2016
Pros: Room size. Facilities. Staff
Cons: Only let down that the tea and coffee making facility in the room wasn't re stocked with milk/coffee/milk etc.
Location: Five minutes from the beach - 10 minutes by foot. Three restaurants on the beach nearby. Plenty of golf courses in the area and beautiful beaches.
We had a very pleasant stay at the Ria Palace. The staff were excellent. Lovely pool area with plenty of sun loungers. Room was spacious and comfortable with balcony. Plenty of car parking spaces.

Not a 5 Star Hotel

Posted Sep 16, 2016
The Hotel was ok but definitely not a 5 Star Hotel. Some staff were helpful but others were very unhelpful. It was the attention to detail that lets this hotel down. It was the small requests that could not be fulfilled that any true 5 Star Hotel would have passed with flying colours

Great Hotel + Staff

Posted Sep 14, 2016
Pros: We liked everything about this hotel. It's grew for a quiet break. We went in the 2nd week of September.
Cons: Only thing is the beds are too firm. They had toppers on the mattresses but still too hard for us. I would suggest thicker toppers.
Location: Close to the beach and some very good beach restaurants. Quinta do Lago golf courses very close.
Was not expecting this little gem. Were greeted by warm and friendly staff who could not be more helpful. Looks like room was recently refurbished. The decor is traditional and very clean. New beds, flatscreen TV with English channels. Coffee and tea making facilities. Great bathroom with a very good shower. The outdoor pool is the highlight of the facility. Very beautiful and very clem. The poolside bar and cafe were fantastic serving drinks and basic food that was very tasty and well prepared. The spa was very nice and the treatments reasonably priced. They provide bus transfer to the beach but you can also walk there in 10 minutes. The buffet breakfast had a very large selection of continental and cooked items. Only wish they had omelette chef on the floor. Will definitely return.

Beautiful location and super-friendly staff

Posted Sep 13, 2016 on Hotels
Top place to chill out and stay away from noisy parts of Portugal. Super-friendly staff, hotel very clean not only guests room but in general. Breakfast in the sunny morning is the best thing you can ask for. Great place to re-charge 'batteries', when you don't know what day of the week is then you know you are on great holidays.

Family holiday to Vale De Lobo

Posted Sep 8, 2016 on Hotels
Great hotel for a short break - 10 minute walk to the beach and excellent seafood restaurants with access to free shuttle service. Good breakfast buffet, free wifi and live piano music in the bar. Have visited several times and will be back.

Towel Attendant

Posted Sep 6, 2016
Overall it was a nice hotel however one of the towel attendant by the pool was quite rude! Lacking in customer service and was quite abrupt! The other guy who mans the area mostly was very helpful and lovely.
