Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit.

This is one of the worst hotels I have stayed ever. The hotel has a nice location (view on the ocean and when the weather is good, it is pretty cool to sit at the terrace). The hotel is very old, everything in the bathroom was leaking (the bath, the toilet). Although there was a proper bath in the room, we could not fill it with water. When requested to take a look at the problem, the cleaning lady asked twice if we want to take a bath and when I said: "No, just shower" she replied "Well, if you want to take a bath you should ask for another room". Breakfast is the same everyday and fruits are not fresh ever. Very limited choice as well. We had to ask multiple times to get tooth paste renewed in the room. The room itself was very small and no good ventilation either (all the cloth was always wet due to the humidity). I had the feeling we got the most horrible room in the whole building. Reception workers close the doors at night, so when coming back from the city after midnight we had to wait at the entrance for someone to open the front door to us. There is a swimming pool at the terrace which is not warmed up so when it is raining, you can't swim there either which is a pity. Would have made so much more sense to heat it and also clean the water every now and then. I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Roof top swimming pool, great for morning or afternoon swim. Rooms are nice and clean, very high stantard for 3 star hotel. Breakfast needs to improve., lovely restaurants near by. Half an hour walk to the city center, but with a nice view.

When we arrived there was head splitting renovation. My wife was sick and we needed someplace where she could rest. The staff we belligerent and suggested there was something wrong with us because we didn't want to spend the whole day out. Greedy, unethical. Clearly many of the other guests were equally disturbed.

Not in the City, yet just a short busride or a nostalgic tram ride from downtown and even closer to the great fish restaurants in Matesinhos. Unbeatable location and one of the rare Porto hotels actually on the sea. Add to this nice, comfortable rooms, a pool on the roof, and a stunning view - and you will be happy.

We were absolutely gutted when we saw our room.So so disappointing. So overpriced and staff unhelpful and one receptionist incredibly rude. We booked a twin room at the front of the property which we paid a supplement for. However we got a room looking directly at a brick wall and the rooms opposite. However the management insisted that it was a room at the front and insulted our intelligence be not taking our complaint seriously. . Do not believe the photos on the website. We had to keep the net curtains closed to give a little privacy. The view from the terrace is good but this property is very outdated. Horrible dark,dingy room. Had to have the lamps on in the middle of the day. Bathrooms have mouldy grouting and the pool has a thick scum layer around the walls. We didn't venture in. Supposed to have tea and coffee making facilities but we got one teabag and one sachet of coffee and no milk per day. Too bad if you both want tea!!
