“Not perfect but quite relaxing Hotel, with nice surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is a classic Hotel located inside the old gardens of the Curia SPA.

The large gardens are very relaxing and are probably the best asset of the Hotel. There is a large lake with pedal bots, nice gardens areas, children's playground, tennis court and a reasonable (but not great) outdoor pool. The Hotel also provides bicycles for free for its guests.

The Hotel itself is quite old. Some areas appear to have been completely rebuilt, others extensively renovated and others were not renovated at all. This can make a difference in your experience, so make sure you get a new or a renovated room. My room was average sized and nicely decorated. Soundproofing was good and overall the stay was remarkably comfortable.

The common areas are also comfortable. Here and there you'll notice some signs of aging but in general this will not affect your stay.

Breakfast was good. The restaurant was OK for an Hotel restaurant. Service was efficient and friendly. WiFi was free and of good quality. The choice of TV channels was decent but not great.

I did not try the Hotel SPA, but anyway it looks more like a classic thermal SPA than a modern Hotel SPA.

Overall you notice some areas are a bit rundown and in need of remodeling (both indoors and outdoors) but there are definitively enough positive points to recommend the Hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a new or renovated room.

I was in this hotel last year with my girlfriend and i just spent there about 30 minutes. Something which was guaranteed in the reservation wasn't working and i moved to another hotel closer, cheaper and better. I didn't touched anithing in the room, didn't used the toilet, i left it just like i found it. This hapened in April 2011, and 9 months later i still fighting to have my money back. The only answer i had to dozens of phone calls and emails was a letter saying they don't understand why am i complaining because i spent there 30 minutes with "the girl"!
That's when i understood what kind of hotel is that...

We are a couple staeyd there for 9 nights over a New Year period 2011-2012 Dec-Jan. As I said everything was perfect we could not complain. The park, the lake, the tracks ... We went for a beautiful walks every morning it was so nice quite and relaxing. That is what you need when you would like to get away from all the noise of the city life. It is located close to shops and restaurants. The area is famouse for its wine and litaoes (yum) (the spelling is most definately wrong). Very good breakfast. Mareviilja ))) Would stay again!

I was in this hotel with my girlfriend during one weekend and we had a lot of fun! The place is wonderfull, the hotel is in the middle of a forest/garden SO beautifull... amazing! Its a super quiet place, with a lot of class, and you can spend the day walking arounf the hotel, in the beautifull gardes, you can visit the "Termas" where they make healthy treatments based on special waters, and the best of all: 5 minuts from the hotel you have one of the best restaurants where i had dinner: A CASA DOS LEITOES, where you can eat a delicious meat! i recommend!

We stayed at this hotel and were disappointed. The grounds and room were all quite pleasant and the hotel in general is nice. What disappointed us were the elevated prices for the treatments and the food. It seems that Termas de Curia operates on the principle of having a captive audience instead of providing their clients with services at a reasonable price. The sauna is not included and costs 7 Euros extra which is quite unusual. We also went on our honeymoon and were not given anything extra as is customary. The internet also had problems and it is complicated to call reception from the room.

In sum, a pleasant hotel but not good value for money.

This is a 3 star hotel that should be rated 4 star. It has all the amenities required with the exception of the indoor swiming pool. They only have the outdor one. Went there for a private event and had no expectations. A new wing provides for updated rooms.
Another plus: it has a massive,historic garden.
The negative is also related to the hotel age. The tenis court needs a review, and also some buildings require revision or upgrades.
The restaurant is good, but that region is known exactly for the good food, so you can never go wrong.

We stayed for just 1 night but found everything perfect. Location in the park, lovely pool, cosy bar, very large bedroom and bathroom, historic thermal baths next door. Very relaxing.
