A lovely location overlooking the sea and an ancient fort at the mouth of the Douro in the suburbs of Porto. If you want a mix of beach and city this is perfect. The room itself was in need of an update, but this is only a 3 star after all and the marble bathroom had everything you could need including a jacuzzi bath.
Pool and sun-deck on the roof, plus a restaurant which I didn't try as there are ample choices of trendy restaurants on the beach below.
A bit of a hike into old Porto, but a bus ride or taxi would be only 10 miutes or so.
If I wanted to relax in Porto I would stay again depsite the basic room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more less
