We stayed here for a week with 2 teenage kids. In the end we didn't use the spa facilities, which was probably a mistake, but we're too busy going in to Porto or exploring along the beachfront. The 3 best bits were: 1. Big, comfortable rooms 2. Very friendly staff 3. Location... Great pool, right by the beach, nice walk... More

The hotel is in a prime location, but make no mistake it is not a 5 star. Decent size room, but the bed is not as comfortable. Also found some dirt in the bathroom.Breakfast is great! Reception indifferent and not so helpful. The hotel shows its age, deserves a huge reform and modernization of their rooms and facilities. Found the... More

We have been going to Solverde regularly since it opened. It started life as a very modern luxurious hotel, aged a little to the extent of being almost dowdy. I am pleased to report on the basis of our last visit that it is regaining its former status. The changes are minor but meaningful - new carpets in some areas,... More

A good hotel for a short break. The Internet is good and free. The parking is free for the car which is a plus. Despite being an old hotel, the rooms are new and are very comfortable. The SPA is very good. The gardens are good spaces for those with small children. Expected more from a 5 star hotel for... More

We stayed for 5 nights and picked the hotel for its location ( 30 minute train ride from Porto) It was perfectly adequate for our stay. The breakfast room certainly not a cattle market and it suited our taste. We spent most of our days out walking into Esprinho and along the beach broadwalks either side of the hotel. The... More

No tea / coffee making facilities in room. You have to wear a shower cap to use the pool indoors but you don't have to if you want to use the pool outdoors, both pools are sea water. Extremely poor people / staff management. The lovely girl on the bar was doing drinks for room service / the pool area... More

We have stayed here 3 times now first in 2008 then at about 4 year intervals. The Hotel is showing signs of age but this does not detract from the excellent service and facilities offered and if you book early you can get a very good deal. Food is good and the Bar has a very good multi lingual Barman... More

Lovely spot outside the hustle and bustle of the city of Porto. Go for a place away from the city center, stay for the amazing spot right on the beach. The room was beautiful. We especially liked the way they curtained off the entrance to the balcony. The restaurant is absolutely first class. the food terrific and the service spot... More
