The breakfast is certainly a good reason to wake up for. And for a main meal I strongly recommend the tuna salad!. All fresh and carefully prepared. Must...

One of the best I've ever been ! From the room to the SPA everything is really five stars ! And I felt this way all the 5 times I've been here ! Like some commercial say: JUST DO IT (from Nike of course). Now seriously, do a favor to your self and try it !

We arrived believing this to be a 5 star hotel, as described on the website. We travel quite extensively & are more than happy to stay in a 3 or 4 star hotel, but when you are expecting the luxury and everything else that should go with a 5 star hotel and walk into the Ria Park you WILL be...
