I am in dispute with the hotel as the master suite we got had bad electrics. To preempt the hotel's reply here is their reply with my subsequent response. Stay anywhere else but here despite the proximity to the river estuary. I have in my life never spent so much on a hotel. My wife thinks the management are incompetent.... More

This is a 4 star hotel located in the shore of river Minho with a brilliant view. the external swimming pool is located in a perfect spot as it is protected of the wind by the hotel and we really enjoyed sunny warm mornings (in this region of Portugal that can be a true achievement). The rooms are clean and... More

The beds are so hard that you could as well sleep on the floor.... Try Boega Hotel or any other rural tourism option... Apart from the mattresses the hotel is reasonably okay and the swimming pools are good.

Excellent pool (view, water temperature, desing) and SPA. Breakfast is good and offers a gorgeous view of the mouth of the river, although sometimes product replacement could be faster and it lacks regional food. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Hotel is very clean and quiet. Excellent choice to relax and vist the nearby areas and/or beaches.

Good location if you are in between Spain and Portugal. The hotel itself is nice if you’re looking for a standard business hotel. I booked a room with river view and paid extra for that and they placed me in a swimming pool view room. I only realized this after unpacking and checking my reservation later on to make sure...

A typical modern conference hotel, excellent room overlooking Spain and the Minho, but busy road adjacent. Good air conditioning and quite a large room with a very good shower, and everywhere very clean. The breakfast was good but the evening buffet meal was poor for a 4 star hotel, I expected waiter service. The lounge area was not homely. Outside... More

Very good position overlooking the river, and Spain. The hotel has been refurbished and is modern and comfortable. Great breakfast buffet, with real freshly squeezed orange juice on tap. Easy walk into Caminha, beautiful area, lovely in the evening to eat in the old square. Avoid hotel restaurant as overpriced and no atmosphere. The reception staff are and indifferent and... More
