The restaurant of this hotel is really good and the place is just amazing. Service is impeccable too. It was a pleasure to find this place in the valley. Just an advice: make the reservation before going.

The Aquapura is a beautuiiful redone hotel. Unfortunately we got a room out of the main building. It did not have the views of the main house and we had to walk a bit to the restaurants, which are all in the main building. Its wine countru, you are sorrounded by vines, and the Duoro river. The iews are incredulous.A... More

This is one tired hotel! Opened in 2007 and not been touched since. Lousy service accept at the poolside, which is fab. As too the pool itself and surroundings. The spa was pot luck with things working. One day no steam room, the next laconium and herbal sauna down, the day after, sensations showers. Not good enough for the money... More

This hotel has a perfect locating in the Douro valley and is very famous for its spa and wine culture. Our room had a garden view, however, for a 5 star hotel the room was small and not even a sofa or arm chair was present (actually i think that would not fit in there). Strangely the corridors and interior... More

What a great hotel. Beautifully appointed in a gorgeous valley with stunning views. Peaceful and romantic with the most incredible spa . But... Help! Mastering the shower was a challenge, resulting in husband and I laughing trying to avoid a scolding or freeze! Also... The light controls took us a good 10 minutes to work out and we wondered if...

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
