As a retired couple on a first visit to Portugal and looking for a quiet spot by the ocean and near to Porto we couldn't have had better location than the Golden Tulip. We stayed for 7 nights from 13/11/17 in a large, clean,comfortable room with a balcony(common to all rooms) that had a great sea view. The bed was one of the largest I've slept in and the shower and toilet facilities were very good. Very good wi-fi connection throughout the hotel.
The breakfast whilst not outstanding offered a good selection that always filled us up.
The hotel also has it's own restaurant, Casa Branca where we had 2 outstanding evening meals.
You are only 50 metres away from the beach and a bus stop with 3 routes into Porto as well as a bicycle path/footpath that takes you along the River Douro to the port wine cellars via Afurada, which is worth a visit in it's own right.
However, what really marks this hotel out are it's fantastically friendly,helpful and courteous staff. We are already looking forward to another visit in 2018.Mike HMore
