It's hard to believe that hotel belongs to the group of Pousada or Pestana. TERRIBLE view at the public swimming pool, daycare, outdoor storage of tools, tennis court that once upon a time was in use. You can see all this trough the wobbly, rusty fence with constant noise from all of this and tube of fen / AC. All the employees are outstanding. Cleaning is done to the highest standards. GM to whom I complained , said to me several times that I have to understand them and come back next year ? Beautiful country side - stay away from all the disappointment.

We stayed at the Pousada for our wine tour in the Upper Douro Valley. Nice, historical hotel with friendly staff. Also ate at the restaurant 2 nights in a row. Aircon in July is a life saver since the temperature outside was 35 degrees. Worth staying.

This hotel is not bad but the service as well as the premises need work. The umbrellas around the pool are very old. Also the bathrooms in the rooms need som work. The restaurant however was very good.
