The douro magic is so much appreciated in a panoramic suite that is so well designed, with lot of mirrors in strategic points. All the hotel is a well balancement between the old and the new, with such a stunning environment.

On a quit site next to the Duoro river this hotel is meant to give you ultimate leisure and comfort experience. Staff is professional and friendly, helpful, experience in adding value to the hotel. Rooms are luxurious but dark (from november 1st 2014 hotel is closed for refurbishment and by saying colours will be brighter). Bar is perfect stocked, barmen... More

I and my wife chose this hotel to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Everything was excelent: from the room to the restaurant, from the spa to the breakfast. Highly recommended. The best: the view, the pools, the garden, the breakfast. What might be improved: our bath was a little too hot; confusing light switches in the room.

My mother and I stayed here in September and had a wonderful 3 days visiting wineries and enjoying the great Aquapura hotel. The room was very spacious and comfortable, the only strange thing was the huge window looking into the bathroom from the bedroom... The restaurant was excellent, albeit a little pricey - service was a little patchy with food... More

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...
