We were in this hotel for 5 nights during our holidays. It is perfectly located on the seaside, the next great big sandy beach is located within 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel is only 45 kilometers from Porto airport. Nice architecture with the swimming pool in an atrium, in this atrium you can also have tea, cocktail or breakfast.... More

I have stayed here twice with my husband. The night we got married and once on our anniversary. We always get the hotels best room which has a lovely view over the sea and a balcony with table and chairs. The staff are very accommodating.

We stayed as part of a largish group in September 2014. The manager and staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating and made the holiday for the whole group extremely enjoyable. Service was excellent and the centre-piece of the pool area, surrounded by bogenvelia, was really lovely. Although one or two rooms are showing a little sign of... More

We ended our holiday in North Porugal & Spain at the end of October in a storm; there was an Atlantic gale and the rain was pouring down almost horizontally! We had planned to spend the night at Viana do Castelo, but hopeless carparking there and the desire to keep dry made us abondon this and move further down the... More

We had a week here in September. Our room with a small north facing balcony was clean, comfortable, good bathroom but not overlarge. Quiet apart from a cockerel that celebrated 5 o'clock every morning and went on to 7:30. Closing the window solved the problem. The hotel has a good pool with a childrens' area and a spacious bar with... More

We stayed here for a week in mid September on a group trip from London arranged by Success Tours. Francisco, the manager, and his staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our waiters, Tiago, Antonio et al were especially welcoming. The breakfasts could have had more variety (every day had the same choices). The evening meals were typical Portugese cooking... More

Very friendly staff, especially Ricardo in the bar who kindly opened my bottle of wine from the supermarket on 2 nights and packed it in an ice bucket to take away. Breakfast is pretty ordinary, 2 Douwe Egbert coffee machine that produce the rank dark water that Dutch offices have. But you can ask for real coffee and the waiter... More

This was my first trip to Esposende despite living in Portugal for many years. When I saw that the hotel was only three stars my expectations were not too high, but wasn't I surprised! The quality of the rooms, the common areas, the facilities, the location, everything was four star. I really don't understand the rating system because I have... More

Suave Mar is an excellent hotel that could have been rated 10 out of 10 points but unfortunately we cannot rate it higher than 6 points due and only due to the fact that whereever you are horrible jazz music hounts you.
