I have been here twice and both stays were just divinal!

Stayed here with Newmarket Holidays as an 'allocated on arrival' Very pleased, hotel was clean and the food was buffet style. Right on the beach with an easy walk into Povoa. Good swimming pool area and large lounge area beside bar.

We spent 3 days here with our family, 3 beds in each room , a good size, which was fine. The beds could have been more comfy. One room had a balcony. It has been redone recently so all was in excellent shape and the spaces used well. The bathroom was large although lacking in shelf space and hot water... More

A non-pretentious hotel that delivers. A fine location. The room (seeview) is ok, the breakfast is good, the swimming pool is what you expect it to be, and you are just a few steps from the beach. The only negative is the size of the lifts – as mentioned before. A perfect choice for the summer holidays.

We have just returned after four nights and we were highly delighted with the hotel which provided everything we needed. The only complaint I would have is about the bar staff who tended to go missing for long periods but everything else was excellent. the rooms were clean and everything was in good working order. i would certainly revist this...

Decided on excellent because of the amazing staff who could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Fernando, on the front desk, had a great sense of humour and on several occasions really went out of his way to help with car hire and suggestions of where to go. He arranged for the car to be delivered and collected -... More

I stayed here on a Newmarket Travel Hidden Portugal tour and was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. There were a couple of minor problems. As other reviewers have pointed out there are only four small lifts and at busy times you can wait some time - our record was 10 minutes and, as my wife has... More

Very clean and modern and an excellent location. The only down sides were that there are only 4 lifts each only holding 4 people - with 12 floors to cope with there was a bit of queuing at peak times! The staff were friendly - especially in the bar and reception and there is also a small shop selling a... More

I stayed here for 7 nights as part of the Archers/Cosmos coach tour Discover Northern Portugal and the Douro Valley. I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel and its facilities and would return. As a single traveller I often do not have very high expectation of the room I am allocated, even after paying a single room supplement. However, this... More

We have just spent 8 days at this hotel, very modern, very clean and we'll run. The food was excellent with a very good choice of main courses. We were on Newmarket Travels Hidden Portugal which was very well organised, and the tours were brilliant. We would definitely go back. We think some people complain just for the sake of... More
