Overall the hotel is great - the staff is extremely helpful and accommodating and the Spa was a great experience. It was a bit windy therefore we didn't get to use the outdoor pool however, the indoor pool and sauna were very nice. The morning breakfast was great and we had a very nice dinner that night.

This was our first stay at The Solverde and we were really impressed! The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is pretty good and the facilities are impressive. Renovations to the spa were taking place while we were there and there was a bit of building noise, but nothing too intrusive. The hotel is about 2.5K outside Espinho. There... More

Just home from a lovely stay at Solverdere spa and wellness - the hotel staff were very helpful. Food in the restaurant is amazing. We stayed there to visit Porto and while it is about 30 minutes by car from Porto the hotel offer a free shuttle bus which is very handy. There is a train station about 10 minutes... More

The hotel is very big and the rooms are very big. The spa and the swimming pools are very nice. BUT : This hotel needs urgently a renovation. The showers per example are old and the floors are very dark. The best thing was maybe that we were blocked in the elevator. But they took us out quite quickly.

We are here on a 6-night holiday and the place is delightful. The staff are so helpful, especially Francisco on reception, he was friendly and arranged a quiet room for us due to noise sensitivity. The rooms are a little dated but they're charming. The communal areas are furnished well to befit the age of the hotel. Breakfast is good... More

This hotel is charming, very clean as well as superbly maintained, great service and a stunning seaside with beautiful long walks right in front of the premises. The food is genuine and divine. Perfect for a holiday or corporate events. The staff will certainly make you feel home

This hotel is located next to an awesome beach, few kilometers outside of Porto. Porto is within reach with the local tram, which is just outside of the hotel. The staff were incredibly polite and welcomed me at the hotel with open arms and very friendly. The rooms are very big and I definitely recommend a room with a sea... More

We stayed here for one night when we were visiting Porto. The hotel is very beautiful and has an amazing oceanfront view. The room was extremely comfortable. There was a balcony which faced the ocean (we paid 20 Euros to upgrade to the ocean view). The grounds below our balcony appeared beautiful and well-maintained, although we didn't ever go down...

Some highs, and some very low lows. We were welcomed with very open arms by very polite staff, Antonio especially. Breakfast is not that varied as the hot food is limited to pork (even the eggs) which we don't eat, so we had to have cakes, toast and fruit instead. One day I asked for an alternative though and the... More
