The view by the pool says everything. The staff is very friendly yet lacks some preparation. The restaurant is great and the food is worthy recognition. But the snacks are not in the same level.. the rooms are wide and the bathroom is wondurfull with a bathtub inviting. Breakfast very good and diversified. The worst part is the decoration, that...

For a 5 star hotel it's not what is should be. Rooms a clean and nice but most of the staff is unprofessional and lacking in basic English. Even simple things like ordering orange juce at the pool bar can be a challenge.

The hotel and spa in itself sits in a beautiful location, nice modern bungalows and good food at the restaurant. But a bit weird to have to pay extra for a cup of tea or coffee if you make one in your room since they call themselves a five star hotel, and extremely slow check in. Arriving in a group... More

It is true the view, surroundings and room are beautiful but that is where it ends I'm afraid. The reason we booked the hotel was because of the pictures of the outdoor infinity pool, the photos of which are plastered all over the website. We thought to end our 4 day stay trekking round Porto with a relaxing couple of... More

I was there with my wife (no kids, this time...) for a relaxing weekend and we have appreciated every minute... From the warm welcome at the reception, to the excellent food and divine wine at the restaurant under a full moon, with all the calm of this paradise of the northern Portugal. The excellent technique of massage in the SPA... More

Nice views of rural Portugal... Almost a great place too bad the exterior pool is colder than the North Pole and the access to the heated interior pool is very hard even though both pools are together. Comfort was not a priority when whoever designed the exterior pool. Great place to spend one day with very nice views of the... More

I went for a weekend far from the city. I loved the SPA, it's very good. I just found the restaurant overpriced. The bungalows are far from the breakfast room, but they are very spacious, elegant and overall, very good. The breakfast could be better, but overall it as a good experience and i will return.

After having stayed in this Hotel in Christmas a couple of years ago, we decided to stay again in Spring, and couldn't have been happier. As we already knew, the location is amazing, and the hotel is very well equipped, and has large, private rooms/luxury cottages. This time we were pleasantly surprised by the service at the restaurant. Unfortunately we... More

This hotel has a perfect setting with great views. This is a very good quiet place for a few relaxing days. We've stayed in a junior suite. This is a very good and comfortable room, with a good bathroom with a separate shower and and separate toilet. The service at the reception and Spa is very good, but I can't... More
