We arrived at Porto Palacio Congress Hotel this morning and was totally blown away by the quality service. It's a beautiful hotel with a contemporary design. The staff are very friendly. Extremely important to us, was to have a great workout facility in the hotel; it exceeded our expectations. The Workout facility is the best I've seen at any hotel...

The hotel is clean with friendly personell and a good possibilities to eat. The terace on top of the hotel is fantastic! The location is ok - there are hop-on-hop-off bus that stop in front of the hotel - other than that it's far off down-town. You need to walk an hour to get to the sight seeing places. The...

Hotel rooms are very nice, big bedrooms, nice marble bathroom, separate toilets. Breakfast had a good choice of food and fresh juices, cooked breakfast might be improved but is a slight detail. Staff was very attentive. Lovely roof terrace with view over Porto and the sea, ideal for a cocktail in the evening, shame it open from 5.00pm only, can...

The Porto Palacio feels like a business hotel and there was a mix of either very friendly or off hand staff. Upon checking in we were told, in a way which suggested that the clerk was enjoying it, that our rooms were not available. Not very welcoming. We were also not offered the customary glass of port although the decanter...

It's not often a hotel with 5 stars is actually 5-star, however the Porto Palacio definitely rates its 5 stars. We stayed here for two nights and cannot fault anything. We were on the 11th floor overlooking the city with a view of the ocean in the distance. The room was ginourmous, spotlessly clean and with a super king sized...
