The hotel has an amazing view, all rooms face the ocean, very friendly staff, a refreshing pool and much space to relax. All bathrooms are renovated, the lobby is bright and stylish and the serve sparkling wine at the breakfast buffet. However, the rest of the breakfast was nothing special, some parts of the hotel (the elevator, the pool furniture, ...) could be renewed. I came by car and went to some beaches and a beautiful hike in Viana do Castelo (30min drive, the 10km hike starts right behind the church Santa Luzia) during the day. I had a very relaxing time!!

My friend and I stayed at Sao Felix for 4 nights at the beginning of October 2017. We had an absolutely brilliant time and it was mainly due to this hotel. The hotel is absolutely beautiful - the views are breathtaking. It's very clean and the staff are amazing! They were so helpful and helped us see more of Porto than we would have otherwise! The manager there, Nuno, was incredibly attentive and was so helpful.

People in Porto are so kind, and we were genuinely blown away by it. There is so much to see there! The hotel has a shuttle service to Povoa de Varzim which is the local town, and there's a beach there (which was so beautiful and peaceful), plenty of shops and restaurants. You can also take the metro from there to Porto which is the city and has so much going on there! It's about 45mins on the express train and longer on the slow train(about 6€ return). It is possible to ask the hotel shuttle to take you there but it costs a fair bit more than the metro (around 35€). There's another town called Braga which is nearby and we wouldn't have had the chance to visit Braga if it wasn't for Nuno driving us there and picking us up. He even took us to a church called The Good Jesus (I think it's called Bom Jesus in Portuguese) which is very high up and offers amazing views. Definitely worth the visit - it's stunning!

I would definitely return here, to the hotel and the town. It's beautiful and can be the perfect getaway to recharge! Thank you Nuno and Sarah and all the staff at Sao Felix for making our stay so memorable!

The view, the staff, the rooms, the pool, the FEEL up there is simply amazing!

All staff members are friendly, helpful and seem like they really like their jobs, in this well managed hotel. The restaurant offers really wonderful food in a quiet and beautiful atmosphere and view of the city and the ocean.
Gorgeously decorated and clean. Rooms with a marvellous view.

The location on the top op Mount Sao Felix, will just make you feel the calmness when you enter. Come to the hotel for complete relaxation, or for exploring the great area around it.

Yes, it's a 30 min drive from Porto airport, but the hotel has pickup service.
I was there twice without having a rental car. It is very easy to go to Porto Centre by Metro from the nearby city.

If you rent a car, you must explore the area! Within 30-40 mins from the hotel, you will find amazing cities with great stories to tell. Stories of Portugal’s beginning and history combined with beautiful views, castles and marketplaces.

I've stayed at Sao Felix twice, and will definitely come back.

I can't emphasize this enough: Go there!

With a staff very warming, the hotel is at an amazing place. Near the hotel we have a church and a coffee with a awesome view. If you like beach, you have Póvoa do Varzim at 6 km. Also near the hotel, we could visit a sanctuary. In one word: amazing.

Lovely location with stunning views, friendly helpful staff at this modest sized hotel with good food but limited choice on menu.
Somewhat off the beaten track so wise to hire a car. 15 mins drive to local centre, plenty to do within an hours drive.
