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

This was one of the nicest hotels my husband and I have stayed in. It is tucked away among the vineyards in the Duoro Valley and the views are spectacular. This hotel is meant to be lingered at and enjoyed! The room was wonderful with a large king size bed, many pillows, plush towels, spacious shower and a separate bathtub.... More

Tried to book for two nights but only one available - having now stayed there for the one only regret the further night was not available. The hotel is unusual not least because of unusual levels, very open spaces and subdued lighting but the staff very welcoming on arrival and throughout our short stay.. Our room was not ready so...

Idyllic, if remote, setting with an incredible view of the river and surrounding area. Don't come expecting to find much in the immediate vicinity. If you come to here to relax and unwind, like we did, you'll be immensely pleased. Would happily recommend Aquapura and hope to be back again

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
