Don't go there...

Posted Oct 14, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel has a great potential, however the current conditions are so bad. Staff is extremely unfriendly and talks as if you were bothering them. There was no internet in the room even though it was advertised, when you speak to the staff about it, they say the hotel does not guaranty wi-fi in the rooms, but only the common areas, which is also not true, as we could not connect in common areas too. As for hotel condition and cleanliness, HORRIBLE!! Despite the very nice location, the hotels is so old, the rooms are worn out and poorly maintained. Washroom, rugs, walls, curtains and even light switches were dirty and in some case sticky. Room is so big, with one heater on the ceiling, that was not enough to heat it, so it was a bit uncomfortable to sleep in a relatively chilly room. The only good things are location of the hotel and food.

Beautiful location up in the hills, but conversely very isolated with no facilities or villages available by foot. Hotel itself has seen glorious days, but is now very tired and in need of decoration and upkeep. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Wi Fi reception was awful, often not working at all, despite the hotel advertising it. Very frustrating.. . Good parking facilities -- one of the better aspects. Overall quite disappointed with the whole package..

A wonderful retreat to relax..

Posted Nov 11, 2012
Pros: Location... Location... Location.....
Cons: The TV was quite old for a four star rated hotel,but the rest of the hotel easily compensated for such a trivial matter.
Location: Excellent surrounded by trees up in the Falperra area of Braga in the hills. Wonderful fresh air and walking tracks in the forest.
Excellent and poite staff who were very helpful indeed. Beautiful location in the hills with pleasant surroudings,and very relaxing and peaceful. It is an unusual setting as it is an old medieval convent/monastry converted into a hotel,but that adds to it's exclusiveness and attraction. The hotel room balconies are very large with pleasant views. Also an excellent restaurant next door that specialises in traditional Portugese dishes. Overall a splendid stay and good value....

Good amenities & great breakfast

Posted Jun 29, 2012 on Hotels
Hotel wasn't hard to find. The beds weren't extremely comfortable but the breakfast was great (and included). There was a sauna and Turkish bath as well as an indoor and outdoor pool. Mall wasn't too far and you could get fresh mountain water just outside the hotel. Overall it was a good hotel.

Calefacción deficiente y piscina peligrosa

Posted Dec 12, 2016 on Hotels
Nos alojamos en una suit porque éramos 2 adultos y 2 niños. Muy espaciosa. Pero hacía mucho frío en la habitación, el pequeño climatizador era totalmente insuficiente para caldear la habitación. En el cuarto de baño hacía mucho frío y el agua no salía suficientemente caliente. Horrible para ir fuera del verano. Atención: La piscina interior es peligrosa, pues el borde tiene un pavimento de piedra pulida y al estar mojado, es muy resbaladizo. Sufrimos una caída que podía haber sido muy grave. Mucho frío en vestuarios. Por estos motivos, para nosotros fue una mala experiencia. No repetiremos este hotel. por decir algo positivo: el desayuno

buen hotel con piscina y jacuzzi interior

Bien, buena habitación aunque la piscina exterior ya no tenía mantenimiento. Buen desayuno. Llevar gorro para la piscina interior y jacuzzi. Ubicación escondida si vas de noche.

Para os vários hotéis aonde temos estado foi bom no global.Jantamos a mariscada que os hotéis tulip fazem como ementa, mas estava apenas suficiente. A do tulip Estarreja é melhor, no paladar.Tem outro sabor.
