From the first class airport pick up to the checkout we had a faultless and happy experience. The staff were naturally friendly and went out of their way to make us feel genuinely welcome. Some of the restaurant main course portions left us feeling hungry however. Avoid the suckling pig or plan on sandwiches later.

A long walk from downtown Porto but we felt like we were staying in a castle! The hotel is an experience in itself and the convenient shuttle made up for the distance into town. The pool and spa area was a relaxing bonus.

We stayed about 3 nights. The hall ways are very dark. I was disappointed that we didn't stay in the actual castle per say, but rather in an orange building right next to it.

Peek of our first visit to Portugal. Pousada do Freixa in Porto is a real oasis of comfort and luxury on the banks of the Douro. The staff is very friendly and at the same time professional. The rooms are top. Enjoying is the only possibility here!
