My wife and I spent three nights at the Virago Palace during our recent trip to Portugal. The hotel is truly a "Grand Hotel" in the early 20th century meaning of that style. The property underwent a meticulous restoration within the past few years so the rooms are fresh and have all of the modern luxury conveniences, while the public... More

From the moment you enter the grounds and see the awesome Palace built for the King of Portugal in 1810 you realise that you have the privilege to experience something exceptional. Beautifully restored to its original design the lounges, dining rooms, the wooden floors, tappisery carpets, impressive staircase and interior decorating are all inspirational.

Lovely hotel with very good spa and sports facilities. Had a great 2 night break. Service was excellent from the moment you arrive and are given an escorted tour of the hotel to familiarise you with the facilities and surroundings

Hard to add any more superlatives to those already made by others. The hotel; its location, food, ambience, and above all its people (staff seems way too mean a word) are all a bit special. if you like that little bit extra, but superb value, then put this one on your bucket list!

The Palace and golf course we're impeccable. Everyone from housekeeping, doormen, restaurant, bar, reception and golf staff created a mood of calm, understated efficiency. We were a party of eight and, on behalf of all of us - it was the best combination of elegant relaxation and sport we have ever experienced.

Superb 5 star Hotel with all facilities including excellent parkland golf course. The location may be a bit out of the way but the trip is absolutely worth it. We travelled with a golf group and all had a superb time.

Having had a major operation last year I was looking for an hotel with facilities such as spa and swimming pool to help recovery and a sunny break for a week. As indicated on the Vidago Palace website and in all the reviews I could find the VP seemed to fit the bill exactly with excellent facilities and good food.... More

A one night stay after reading an article in the telegraph. Most wonderfully restored hotel, beautiful decor, sensitively restored. A wonderful hour spent in the spa. Dinner was exquisite, could not be improved (apart from oiling the door into the kitchen) a great nights sleep in top quality bed linen and wonderful breakfast completed the stay.

Northern Portugal is less visited probably and with Porto so close, foreign travelers probably stop there. The Vidago Palace is a stunning Belle Epoque building, the entrance is magnificent. We trotted in on the hunt for a great hotel for high end clients and we immediately got the sense that THEY GOT IT! Very pretty rooms and bathrooms, breakfast outstanding,... More

A magnificent Hotel in a still unspoiled region! Rather than say something that will seem always insufficient just go there and feel the experience. If you go on cold season please go to the SPA and enjoy the outdoor heated pool, incredible sensations. This place is on my "must go again" list.
