Very good 8.0
Service very good but restaurant lacks atmosphere and had no clue about dairy free which vital for one of us. Lovely hotel.

Watch out for hidden costs
Hotel in an amazing location and shuttle bus very convenient to get to the beach. Rooms leaves little to be desired for the money you pay. no water supplied in the rooms and again an extra cost. . Having to pay €15 was ridiculous . All in all I felt a little ripped off ! Breakfast was pretty basic but nice .

Relax in lovely hotel to the tunes of piano man.
Overall a very nice stay in a classic contemporary hotel. Rooms very nice & spent a lovely few hours by the pool which was well maintained with comfortable beds & quality towels. Restaurant by pool was also a treat with white linen & experienced waiters. Piano being played in reception was an added feature.

Steven, gb1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Nice enough but go in season.
All the staff were great, room was fine, good selection of tv channels, shower wasn’t very powerful mind. Stayed in a suite. Uber from airport was 25mins and cost €20 great. Restaurant wasn’t upto much considering the price of meals. €30 for a steak and some microwaved veg isn’t great. Pool bar was very decent, used it a lot. Breakfast buffet was very nice, great selection. Hotel was nice enough, quite small which isn’t a vibe you get from the pictures, only 1 pool on site and the other is a walk away and not great. Would feel quite crowed if all the rooms were booked out, didn’t seem that much room around the pool. The beach is about a 15minute walk, not ideal. Booked it because we thought it’d be great for little one with the the kids club and all the toys indoor and out to keep them occupied while we swam and sunbathed. They were off site and all closed and locked up, same as the beach sunbeds and sunshades. We went very end of May so was expecting most things to be available considering the price we paid. Pretty disappointed as it was a choice between Ria and Pine Cliffs for the same money and chose Ria because of all the children’s toys which our son never even got to use. Wasn’t made clear anywhere in the booking.
