Just nicer cleaner and more serviceminded. Nice place just outside the innercity, but only a few minuttes away from the innercity by taxi which only will cost you about 6-7 euro. First night we tried the barbeque buffet, it was perfect! Breakfast is ok

The room is big and roomy. With an outdoor swimming pool, you can cool yourself down after a hot Summer day. If you are driving, there is a shopping mall round the corner. Parking is free. Front desk staff are helpful. There are many facilities for kids to spend their time. That is the reason why many families choose to... More

We stayed 11 nights at this hotel (2 adults and 2 kids aged 12&8). The breakfast was lovely and great choices. Both the Bar and restaurant staff were extremely friendly and had a warm welcome for us every day. Pool area lovely and the kids play area great for kids. The rooms were cleaned regularly. We didn't have a car... More

Family of four, very friendly and helpful reception staff, couldn't do enough for us, especially Christiana . Rooms quite small for four but very clean . Breakfast pretty good and something for everyone. Pool area kept very clean and towels provided. A taxi away from main area but fine for what we needed.

The hotel is located on the south (left)bank of the river Douro, quite a distance from the city center of Porto, located on the other side and further east. The facility itself is impressive with spacious rooms and all the amenities of a hotel which is part of an international chain. Dinners are buffet style and sumptuous, and breakfasts excellent...

We stayed for a few nights, as a family of four in a family room. We had a view of the sea which was lovely (the sea was over the top of the hotel so it wasn't 'picture postcard' perfect but it was a nice surprise). Towels were replaced daily and they were great quality, fluffy and large. The pool... More

There are many reasons for us to choose this hotel. First of all it is near to the sea, second it has a swimming pool and only 8 euro's away from Porto center. Furthermore the staff is very friendly and they have possibilities to have breakfast outside, very nice when the sun is shining. The rooms are quit alright and... More

Being right by the highway meant it was very handy for my quick business trip.It was less than €20 from the airport in a taxi and only a 15 min ride. All the staff were keen to speak English and were very welcoming. The buffet dinner was fine and overlooked an outdoor pool. The breakfast buffet was better than many... More

We stayed here for a few days to visit Porto and had a great stay. The hotel is a little out of the centre but that is also an advantage with a car, €6 for a taxi to the Cais de Gaia. Or we used the car park near where the cable car comes down. €6 all day. A little... More
