We have enjoyed our stay there and wish we could stay longer. The whole resort is spacious. We walked around the area and went down to the river bank. It was relaxing and we tasted the grapes grown on-site. It is conveniently located and major vineyards and nice restaurants were within short drives. Room was spacious and amenities were wonderful....

We spent 11 nights in the Villa in October and cannot fault the welcome and the property itself. The day after we arrived staff who we had not met knew who we were. The service is very professional, friendly without being subservient , a winning mix. Many hotels say that dealing with guest's request is important to them , here...

After our first stay in june we come back with couples of friends and they love it too! We had another kind of room and it was better than last time!! The only bad point was the weather but they can't do anything for that!! Hope to come back!

I came here after a hectic working week and a bitter US election to unwind, and I have to say, it erased all my worries. It's a beautifully calm space that balances health and decadence perfectly, and with sustainable values that make it 10 times easier to enjoy. Reception patiently arranged a number of day trips for me and stuck...

This hotel is just the place to stay when visiting Douro Valley. The view is spectacular, the rooms quite comfortable, and the service just perfect. We had a wonderful time there, and the best thing to do is just relax and enjoy the amazing sunset views while sipping wine on their terrace.

Grounds and common areas of the hotel are amazingly beautiful, however the rooms and overall experience felt overpriced. The hotel is understaffed and they are still working out the kinks. We had a room with a stunning view of the river, but it was on the small side with thin walls / doors and a little "cold" in terms of...

The location and property are truly stunning. Tranquil, idyllic, peaceful. Having stayed with colleagues for a business meeting it is very easy to want to stay during my own time (it's that good!). The welcome at Six Senses is gracious, warm and heart felt. The rooms are very well appointed with plenty of nice touches and very high quality amenities....
