We recently stayed here for a couple of nights as we travelled around Portugal. This hotel really does have the most amazing views - nestled in the hillside on the Douro River, it provides the perfect view from the comfort of any of the hotel rooms. Whilst all rooms have a view, we chose to stay in a terraced room, which is on the "ground level" with a working vineyards just outside the door. The thing that really sets the terraced rooms apart from the other rooms is they have very large sliding doors, which is a great way to take in more of that view.
The rooms are great (spacious, clean, great shower), but the hotel could improve on a few things. First, it would be great if there was an area to put things in the shower, as there is no shower tray/caddy to hold shampoo, soap, etc. Also, the terrace rooms would benefit from having chairs on the terrace to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the view just outside the door. Finally, the current Internet interface is quite clumsy - e.g. interface is slow to connect and does not automatically reconnect if your device sleeps, which all mobile devices do.
It is worth noting the hotel is very quiet, which is probably made more apparent in the small common areas. It might benefit the hotel to always play music in the common areas, so it doesn't seem so quiet.
