Loved staying here. Staff very nice and rooms clean and fairly large. Wish we'd asked for a sea view though. Nice, not too long, walk into town which had lots good restaurants and lovely square. Restaurant across road also very good.

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...
