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! Actually if I wanna be honest I understand the idea to have a hotel what is go back to 1912, Titanic time, when all the furnitures,... More

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

Located right near the beach, rooms were okay. But some of the front staff lacked motivation and were quite unhelpful. Not friendly and not unfriendly - just indifferent! The hotel also advertised free tapas during happy hour, the staff on duty at the bar, hesitatingly brought them for us after numerous unnecessary phonecalls to verify etc. Would hesitate to stay...

On arrival I struggled up the steps to the main door with my bag. Putting it inside I asked reception for a bellhop. "We don't have any" he said and stood there and watched as I went back down the stairs to get my companion's bag. Not even an offer to assist. We checked in and went to our spacious... More

We returned to this hotel for our third stay - the last was 3 years ago. It was as if time had stood still and although the hotel could do with updating we could not find any fault. Breakfast was continental but there was always scrambled eggs, bacon and little sausages - extras were available for a charge. The rooms... More
