This is quite frankly the most beautiful hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The scenery from our bedroom, the pool, both inside and outside and the restaurant really made the trip worthwhile. It is the perfect place for a quiet romantic getaway. The food was tasty and not too expensive, the drinks were well made. I...

The location of the Hotel is excellent. The service offered is of excellent quality. The rooms are fantastic with a spectacular view, either to the river or to the mountain. Breakfast with all the good that the region has to offer. The people are of enormous sympathy. Place to repeat for sure.

I will break my review down into sections and hopefully this should make it easier to read. I will start first with the pros about this place. PROS The location is perfect.

The Hotel is situated alongside the Douro River and so you get and outstanding mountain/river view from your panoramic room. Minimalist, but comfortable, facilities and a very nice staff add up to an outstanding stay. Quietness, peace and tranquility are also a given both in and outside the hotel.

Just around the corner after visit Porto, this very nice hotel gave me a full relaxing time. Staff was great and the room view to Douro underfull. Really worth the value for money. The massage in the SPA was great and the gourmet experience to.

Came here for a four night break and initially we couldn't believe that the hotel is just part of what was obviously planned to be a much bigger venture. The top of the building is closed off and partially built - doesn't materially affect your stay but it doesn't look nice. The location is fabulous we had room 32 which...

We found this hotel because we were looking for an hotel with an infinity pool and within our budget. The rooms are big and bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub. The best of the room is, of course, the views over Douro river. The room is a large rectangle with one of the walls being completely made of...
