We stayed at Hotel Boa-Vista in June. Our room was located on one of the higher floors and our view was quite lovely. Breakfast was delicious and the view from the lovely rooftop bar/restaurant was great. The view from this hotel is great from the higher floors. You can see the Douro River meeting the Atlantic Ocean. For a small... More

After spending a few days roughing it camping out in the wilds it was a very welcome moment. The hotel is well placed right down overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the old fort. The staff were very pleasant and spoke both English and French. The room was perfect, mini bar full, bathroom well equipped and very comfy beds. Swimming pool... More

Boa Vista hotel is an adorable hotel in a unique location for your stay in Porto, Portugal. It is situated at the intersection of the Rio Douro and the Atlantic Ocean with an elevated view of both. The hotel is clean and neat and the service is very good. Walk to restaurants along the Altantic coast or head up river... More

This is a lovely hotel, no frills but that is reflected in the price. The hotel is spotless and the breakfast was good. I stayed one night. I arrived at 10.30am and check in wasn't until later in the afternoon. My room was ready and they let me check in early. The hotel is no smoking but they put me... More

A clean and comfortable hotel right by the sea. The roof top restaurant/ bar and pool have gorgeous views over the water. It's worth staying here just for that. Some of the staff were exceptional, going well beyond expectations to help. Others not so helpful, particularly on sunday when nothing is open (including the hotel restaurant) and you will struggle... More

I was booked in Boa-Vista by a business partner so I had no prior knowledge of the hotel. Boa-Vista is almost on beach boulevard and from the top floor and rood top restaurant / bar / terrace / pool you can see the ocean. Location was good for going for a run along the beach and it was to get... More

The hotel is in a good location for getting into Porto as well as to the motorways if you are touring around. There are many good beaches to both the north and south. The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean - housekeeping is impeccable. We went for a room without sea view and used the money we saved to... More

My colleague and I booked the Boa Vista for 4 days after we finished the Camino. The primary reason we booked this hotel was because it had a pool and we thought we could use some serious down time after the Camino. My colleague was going on to Ukraine to consult in a University and I was on to the... More

Would advise to upgrade to a suite for the few extra euros. Well worth it. Far more room. Access to a balcony etc. All good. Breakfast room a little dark but good selection. Terrace bar is very nice. Bring a jacket though...can be brezzy

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. João Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
