Magnificent hotel with drab food.

Stunning views and lovely rooms, shame about the food. Drab and tasteless food, no specials and the same menu for our stay. I think the chefs are lazy as you have no choice.

Tranquil picturesque setting

Posted Aug 5, 2014 on Hotels
Set in a beautiful location on the River Douro, the hotel was a warm welcome after a long drive. The staff were courteous and helpful and the restaurant food was very tasty. We would of appreciated a coffee making facility in the room, but otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Was a bit difficult to find the hotel. But once we found .. everything just perfect. We will be back as soon as possible.

Very nice hotel

Posted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels
Stayed 2 nights here a really nice hotel. Found food to be good but service too slow one night when only one waiter/waitress available. Could do with more activities as location is right on the river and disappointed with this. I think this would be much better in the high season. I would recommend the wine tasting offered at a local vineyard!

Beautiful retreat by the river

This is a beautiful hotel with a great spa and two pools with river views. It is perfect for a retreat, but not for those seeking to walk around Porto. It is a bit far of a drive.

Relaxation Central

Posted Jul 11, 2013
Pros: Beautiful views and great food in the restauant
Cons: Kind of a windy, therefore slow, drive to other places
Location: Right on the Rio Douro!
Hotel is great but a bit off the beaten track. If you want a beautiful place to relax for a day or two --- this is it!

Finding and dining

Posted Sep 22, 2012 on Hotels
The hotel is great, beautiful surroundings and very high standard and great SPA facilities. However, it is difficult to get to if you haven't got a car; the website says they organize transfers to the hotel from the Porto airport, however when we rang the hotel about that it turned out they don't do them. Also very limited choice of food - there is only one restaurant with a very small menu (3 choices of pasta, 3 fish, 3 meats) and the room service serves pretty much the same dishes, which is a bit of an issue if you stay longer than a couple of days.
