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

Very good hotel , 2 great swimming pools. Great views over the Douro. Very good breakfasts and we had two very good dinners in the restaurant. The wine and port collection first class. Excellent service. They are doing a refit on the rooms in the winter which should really make it a top class hotel.

This place is a bit like a Peter Seller's movie in that it is incredibly beautiful and tasteful but just below the surface lies technology run amok and a slight incompetence that is comic. First, the beauty. This is stunning hotel nestled in a lovely part of the Douro Valley with elegant appointments and rates to match. It stacks up... More

We stayed at this beautiful hotel/spa in May/2014 and shared a T2 VILLA D4 facing the Douro River. Our brother in law and wife stayed at the Douro-facing room that has a breath taking view. But they didn`t like the "no privacy" bath room (what seems to be a Registered Mark of the famous designer Nini Andrade Silva - she... More

Maybe I'm just not the market they're looking to but thought this place was just too clever for its own good. Absolutely gorgeous views from all the rooms and the location is great, but i still want a TV that works and be able to figure out how to turn on and off the lights in the room. It felt... More
