Beautiful scenery, wonderful locations, just 1.5-2 hours driving from Porto on the hill of low mountains. Rooms wide and well furnished, staff service attentive and qualified, breakfast high quality, WiFi - good. One of the best places for a week relaxation not far from Porto. Highly recommend.

Very nice service and nice overall standard of the facilities. Had a wonderful view from the bed. SPA treatment (massage) was ok. Amazing pool. We came with the train (lovely ride by the river - recommended!) and the staff came to pick us up with a car! Restaurant food was not good - we tried it twice.

This is absolutely the worst stay I've ever had at a hotel. This was the last part of our Honeymoon in Portugal and it was nightmare. First of all we had a horrible time finding this hotel. We had rented a car (the ONLY way to get there) and got lost a few times. If you're not from the area,... More

We spent some days in this hotel, during the summer. The hotel is pleasant our room had a beautiful view, for the Douro Valley, and the swimming pool, even though small for the number of guests, was ok. The hotel is clean and well maintained and the staff, in general, was nice... Except the restaurante man who was the head... More

An excellent location to escape from the hustle and bustle of life. The views of the Douro Valley are fantastic, and the facilities in the hotel enable you to enjoy peace and tranquility. The Spa facilties and restaurant are first class and add to the experience. A car is vital if you are staying at the hotel as it's in... More

We stayed a weekend in this hotel and we loved every second. We started with massages, sauna and Turkish bath in the SPA. After when we arrived the room we had a bottle of wine and fruits. The dinner was in the restaurant and after we listen to live piano music in the hotel bar. The night finished in a... More

We had clean rooms and it looked quite modern compare to other hotels in European hotels. I found that the price was perfect not too high for the rooms. The only thing that was negative about our stay was the mattress. I didn’t have problems but my partner said the mattress were too hard not comfortable.

Douro Palace is a top place to rest away from the city. Good pool, good environment, good food, outstanding view of the Douro River You need to beware of the following facts: 1) The hotel Restaurant is good (although some may find it expensive) but in longer stays you will like to experience other places as well 2) The Location...

Great modern hotel in the Douro Valley Location: In the middle of nowhere, nearby just a few small villages. Nice views to the river. It´s possible to hear the silence. The road to the nearest small city (Baião) is narrow and sinuous like almost everywhere in the Douro Valley. No restaurants nearby, so you have to use the expensive (by... More

One night spent here, the hotel is nice but we found some room for improvement. The service was hit and miss, the reception people where great but the bar staff was not so good. The rooms look great and have a great view (except for the 3rd floor) but the bed is a bit too soft and when the sun... More
