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

When I entered the hotel I wondered why this hotel wasn't a 4 star hotel, the entrance is really beautiful and quite luxurious. But during our stay I understood why it only has 3 stars. Our room was good, we had a 2 room suite with a little balcony. The hotel had told us we wouldn't have a balcony so... More

Foz is about 6km from Porto and this is our fourth visit to that great city and our fourth stay at this quaint and quirky hotel and we love it! We walk to Porto and catch the 500 bus back which stops about 200m from the front door. The hotel itself is a true 3* with its beautiful roof terrace... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week in this hotel in Foz.which is about 7 km from the centre of Oporto. It couldn't be more convenient for the city but is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. The promenade just in front of the hotel takes you into the city - you can walk,... More

I have stayed at the Boa-Vista on three of four different occasions at various times of the year and will continue to stay here. The hotel is away from the downtown core so it is reasonably priced. A historic trolley car stops near by and takes you into the heart of the city. The hotel overlooks an old castle (now... More

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
