A lovely former palace converted into a hotel. Just a mile or so up the Duoro River with a lovely pool and almost sea side feel. It's a nice riverside walk (45mins) into the town centre but the taxis are cheap (6E) or there is a regular bus service for 1.85E. Breakfast buffet is huge and staff are helpful and courteous.
