This is a beautiful area of Portugal! The hotel is very modern, maybe almost too modern for my taste, but still well appointed. The pool area is gorgeous with the views, but it is a bit disconcerting that you have to either walk through the bar area or the restaurant in your pool attire, which is uncomfortable when people are...

We're new to the Douro Valley. A friend recommended we make a stop here and stay at the AquaPura. We were slightly apprehensive as our typical choice would be a beach destination. We forgot about that about 10 minutes after arrival if the drive thru the valley hadn't already romanced us into submission. Highlights, the service. It's held to a... More

Our experience at Aquapura for 2 nights was good! The pool is gorgeous-competely surrounded by the river, hills, and vineyards. I found it so relaxing! We heard the spa was amazing, but we didn't use those services. Our room was great and the bed was very comfortable. My only complaints would be: room and hotel are very very dark. I... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Aquapura after a long road trip through Spain and Portugal. The atmosphere was amazingly quiet and peaceful. The service was impeccable and they offered to plan any "excursions" outside of the hotel like wine tasting and tours, dinner, and sightseeing. The staff even washed our car! The bed was very comfortable and the... More

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful location and an easy drive from Porto. I went there for a five night stay but could easily have stayed longer. The staff are great and really helpful. The pool is lovely and gets the sun all day. The only downside of the room was that the bathroom isn't private (which would... More

It is a very disigned place, though you have to like the darkness everywhere - the hallways, the rooms everything inside pretty dark. Furthermore one has the impression its so dark because the place is not really in top shape anymore. The color from the walls drops off, the repair work isn't done properly - you see many signs of...

I attended a conference in early June this year and stayed at the hotel.The hotel is well designed and is set amongst beautiful vineyards overlooking the river. The staff were well trained and the wine and food really good. The rooms are very well appointed, comfortable and modern, albeit a bit dark. There is a great pool area, spa and... More

My wife and I just got back from a trip to the North of Portugal. We spent 4 night at Aquapura which is an hour 30 minutes drive from Porto city centre. We have been to some good hotels/ resorts and I must say that Aquapura is way up there. I couldn't help but appreciate the effort put into the... More
