In all my years of extensive travel, this was a first for me. I had reserved 2 rooms there for 1 night.

Nice room with a balcony, you could see the fish swimming in the river. Great breakfast, wifi in lobby and walking distance to town. Luckily my boyfriend was fluent in Portuguese, it's not a huge tourist area.

The Hotel Ribeira is situated right on the river with beautiful views. A short walk across the bridge takes one into central Arcos. Our room was excellent and comfortable. Breakfast was extensive with plenty of choice. Even though the hotel was crowded with a large number of young people, unlike another reviewer of this hotel we had no problems with... More
