I spent a long weekend here with a friend at the end of September. The hotel is easily accessible from Ferragudo train station which is handy if you are travelling by public transport. The hotel itself is pleasant, the rooms were nice, the pool and restaurant overlook the river, which is lovely. Staff were helpful and friendly - they helped... More

Our initial greeting at the hotel was by a receptionist, she clearly didn't love her job! The restaurant staff were wonderful, especially Bruno and Maria. They couldn't do more for us and we were always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome. I'm not sure why there are some negative reviews on the food here, I'm a vegetarian... More

I would say this is a good place to stay if you have a car and know your way around the area. The rooms are big but the bathroom drainage and plumbing is bad. I had complained twice about the problems and yes the staff were very polite and kept on saying that they will get it sorted but this... More

I love this property, I keep coming back to this hotel. But standard rooms are small and nothing special, suite junior are great, large with fully equipped kitchen, two large TV screens, pool is great, SPA small but good(free wich is great). Show signs of ageing outside. Need more maintenance

I read all the poor reviews and everything stated is true, I also read all the outstanding reviews and everything written is true, The Hotel is in the middle depending on what you want and expect, it is not a 5 star and is more like an English 3 star, there seems very little evidence of any management around the...

Having arrived late in the evening there was no food provided, even though we were half board. The rooms are very well fitted out, but the food although waiter service became quite tedious, with the menu not changing a great deal over our two weeks stay. Staff very pleasant and helpful, especially the 'senior' housekeeper on the landing. Unfortunately on... More

I can't fault the hotel at all it was clean, the staff were helpful and polite. It isn't in a central location but we had a hire car so it didn't matter. The only drawback was the food at dinner, some of the meals were bland like the asparagus risotto which seemed to only consist of rice and asparagus. The... More

I am still impressed by their service. The hotel had everything we needed. The swimming pool has a perfect view to the River. The restaurant staff was superb!!! Dinner was amazingly tasty. If you are going to this site of Portugal, I would strongly recommend to hire a car, as there is not much to do around the hotel. I... More
