The Rooms of this 1950 design are big and airy and all come with a Balcony with a marvellous view of the Beach. The Pool can be a little bit on the fresh side in terms of Temperature which is the same as the Jacuzzi

This Hotel stays quite near the Atlantic Ocean water line with huge stones, sandy beaches and roaring waves. In August it was not safe to swim because of giant waves, but it was nice to walk along the water line. The personnel of the Hotel is very friendly. From a large balcony we enjoyed seeing the changing Ocean. Not far... More

We were supposed to stay for two nights but end up checking out after first night as it was a nightmare of staying at this hotel. Our biggest mistake was not checking the review before we booked our hotel. The hotel is very dirty and and people at the reception were unwelcoming/ unfriendly. There were no amenities at all and...

Me and my husband wanted to stay in this hotel for 2 night in June 2014! When we arrived we already had a bad feeling about it! The hotel is very old and dirty!

We are a mature couple and have been on the road for 12 months. We stayed here 6 nights. We like the situation of the hotel - close to the coast about 5 or 6 kms out of town. It is very quiet. The beach is rocky; within walking distance is a nice sandy beach. We have yet to find... More

Great place away from all the 'hussle and bussle' of Porto and Vila Nova town centre. Good views from the balcony which is enclosed, the windows could be opened wide and were good protection during windy weather. Nice place to sit to watch the sunsets. Used the restaurant a couple times but found a 15 min walk to the Mar... More

We had a beautiful room with an amazing view of the Atlantic ocean. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and every recommendation was spot on. As nice as the hotel was, it was nothing compared to the staff. From the management to the maids, they were all top notch

Having read many of the comments about this hotel, I'm inclined to disagree. I had a large, clean and functional room with a closed terrasse and sea view. The appointments were not brand new but neither were they shabby. Free car park, friendly, competant staff. The buffet breakfast was very good and the adjoining restaurant with ocean view was of...

My biggest regret is not checking the reviews on tripadvisor before making the booking! It was, however, an overnight stay which arose at short notice & as this hotel was conveniently situated for my meeting and Booking.com offered a rate 35% less than the hotels rack rate. I booked & requested a large double bed. On arrival, we found that... More

I stayed in this Hotel a few times. This is not a typical 4-star Hotel. Instead, it is a small, family-run Hotel with a unique location, in the beachfront and with great sea views from almost all rooms (especially the ones facing south). If you like walking or cycling in the beach front (or the river front) you will love... More
