The best hotel of our recent trip to Portugal. The hotel is beautiful, in a rustic chic zen style. Our room (a duplex suite) was spacious and comfortable, with separate shower and soaking tub. Breakfast was plentiful, incuding excellent homemade yogurt, marmelades, waffles, eggs. The hotel's restaurants are also nice and convenient. Staff was very accomodating and helpful. A special...

I have stayed in many 5* hotels but rarely found one that deserved all of them. A luxury experience is not just a question of having a big bed in a big room in a hotel full of big lounges. It´s much more than that and this place offers you everything. Besides the fantastic location one gets a mixture of... More

Dear Elísio S, Many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay with us at Six Senses Douro Valley. You are so right when you say that luxury is more about emotionally engaged, attentive and friendly service than about the physical product which is a given at this level. And while we are very thankful to... More

Stopped here for dinner. Asked for a tour and we were told they couldn't be bothered, even though it was apparent they were less than half full. Overall, the place left a cold and unfriendly feeling. The dinner was quite good but the ambiance was not exactly cozy.

Dear Thaddeus G, What a shame we did not manage to show you round when you popped in for dinner last Friday. I know we spoke on a couple of occasions during your time with us, but if I had only known that the misfire had occurred, I would have been delighted to show you round myself. I do hope... More

We had very high expectations for our stay at Six Senses Douro Valley based on the brand, pictures etc. I am happy to report the GM, Nick, and his team exceeded them with flying colors. As I told both Nick and my husband, it's "relatively easy" (a gross oversimplification I know) to provide outstanding facilities, in this case a gorgeous... More

The hotel was truly a 5 star experience. Honestly, the main reason we booked a trip to Portugal was inspired by this gorgeous resort. The staff, specially director of staff was exceptional. The concierge, even the bell desk guy went out of his way and would always have a smile on his face. Well done and good luck!

I loved the experience, the hotel is extremely charming, the personal was very welcome. The wine bar gives a very attractive and charming environment to the main room, and besides being a 5start Hotel there is a feeling like being at home. I definitely feel like coming back.

We have an excellent long week end. Location is unique and the hotel is top. We were given a river view room which I strongly recommend, as waking up with such a panorama really changes your stay. Food is excellent and also the wine selection (despite a bit expensive). Spa facilities are top class.

We had a great 6 days stay. All the staff was amazingly smiling and caring and made us feel at home. The hotel facilities are modern and comfortable. And the spa was really worth the experience. And we discovered the beautiful Douro Valley with great wines not to be missed !
