When we saw the picture of the building on internet we were not really convinced concerning the style of the hotel. Arriving there we were really surprised. It is a modern and very stylish hotel, well situated in the Douro area. Beautiful rooms and equipment. A joy for the eye. Open, calm, inventive, creative. Even more than design, art. The... More

Superb design hotel with beautiful views over the Douro valley. Trendy, yes; light switches only for the tech-savvy, one must confess; but 5-star all around, especially the rooms facing the river with breathtaking views and the impeccable service. Perfect to relax (the pool is great and the spa is phenomenal) and to serve as headquarters for a trip along the... More

It was a fabulous few days in the middle of the Duoro valley. Aquapura has fantastic service - I have never had such good service anywhere else. Nicely designed hotel too. Valet parking. Views are good. Very nice tennis court.They lent us some racquets and balls. The food in the restaurant is outstanding - but a bit expensive. The nearby... More

We only stayed one night & it was not peak season. The rooms are substantial, with a few irritations such as the light switches. The colour scheme is shades of brown,which is restful, but means the corridors are very dark almost eerie. The facilities are extensive,indoor,outdoor pool spas etc. when we were there only 2 others were using the indoor... More

The hotel is beautiful and the view is spectacular. We had a river room and felt very at ease and relaxed. Unfortunately after a wine tour, we came back to our room and found that the door had not been shut properly and this was 100% due to the fact that the cleaning crew had left it open because our...

A fantastic place to stay. Had a lovely room which could have taken ten people with a beautiful view over the river. They are due to upgrade so will be closed for a few months soon but you couldn't tell. I strongly recommend meeting up with Pierre the smellier who hosts a wine tasting for 5 euros each evening with... More

Before we decided to stay here, I too read the reviews about how dark the hotel is, and I glossed over it because how dark could it possibly be? Answer: very. For some reason the owners decided that dark brown was their color, so carpets, wall decorations, wall color, furniture, even the staff uniforms are all brown, brown, brown (as... More

We stayed at Aquapura Douro Valley for 3 nights in early September as part of our 2-week honeymoon and we loved it. Yes, the interior lighting is a bit dark, but there was plenty of natural light available in our room and the surrounding areas are so beautiful that we were very happy to sit outside by the pool /...

The place is unique and the experience was a blast. Stayed at suite 503. Pillows were very relaxing and beds were extremely comfortable. The staff were very friendly and available. Dine at the hotel two nights, birthday dinner was very pleasing. The hotel offered birthday cake and a glass of champagne for adults. The best for a relaxing break. It... More
