“Wine Tasting.”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

As a group of 43, who not only wanted to sample Portuguese wines,see the stunning countryside north of Povoa and historical buildings of which there were plenty, we were so pleased with the welcoming and assistance we got from the entire staff, especially the additional wine tastings that were arranged for us on 3 of the 7 evenings that we were there. Excellent pool and unlimited room on sandy beach,but very few alternative places to eat. Take taxi or bus into town for more choice or to catch the metro(train) into Porto.

Room Tip: Majority are facing sea ,preferably 2nd/3rd floor. All are good size with balcony.

Enjoyed our Newmarket holiday here. Disappointed our room had not yet been updated but it was still OK. We had a cold spell & it was lovely to have the heating come on.
Lovely young couple with new baby running the hotel. Staff helpful. Plenty of food & circular tables for 10 meant dining with different people so we had many new friends. Ten minute walk to buses for Poava de Vazim & on to Porto - buses every 30 mins. enjoyed relaxing by the pool & walking along the boardwalk to nearest village -45 mins away.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the beach or pool.

An excellent Newmarket Holidays venue. Hotel well sited with all rooms looking over the Atlantic rollers. Bedrooms and bathrooms very clean, even if awaiting their makeover this winter. Staff very helpful and charming. Food very good with large helpings and an alternative every night. Enjoyed sitting at big tables with top ups of jugs of Sangria.
Very good trips included in Holiday. Mary Anne, our warm, cheerful and very friendly guide, was very knowledgable, with excellent English. She spent time with all the guests, and made everyone feel special.
As a group almost everyone got on and enjoyed the evening musician, with lots of dancing and merriment!

Great holiday with nothing but positives.

Room Tip: All rooms look over the sea

I had a great weekend stay at Estalagem Santo André. The place is amazing, on top of the beach, if you put your foot outside the facilities you will literally have it in the sand. The staff is very friendly, it's a family-run inn so you can expect quality service and a warm welcome. It was very clean and every room has a balcony and sea view. Theirrestaurant is so good too, they have excellent fish and seafood and top quality beef. Me and my partner really liked everything. It was super relaxing and a great weekend escape.
Thank you to all the staff at the hotel for such a great stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sea view, so all of them are good.

just spent last week at the Santo Andre Yes there is room for improvement but the owners have it all in hand and i am sure by next year most of the rooms will have had their make over. Hotel in a lovely spot in our book it was great.. We had a great time dancing every night great crowd of people most joining in the fun. Lovely family run hotel Very sorry to hear that Newmarket may not be there next year.Our tour guide was the best ,coped with some difficult situations very professionally.Hello to all the friends we made last week .As to the tour guides socializing with guest when we went to the dining room good for her we have had many in the past that sit on their backside doing nothing . We felt very fortunate to have had such an attentive and well informed tour guide 100%

Room Tip: Try to have a room with a view and a balcony the sea is spectacular

just back from a weeks stay with my husband. Hotel is clean but in need of updating, the staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are ok, . i found it quite boring when stuck in the hotel of an evening as after dinner there was nothing really to do as everything was too far away. i think this hotel is best suited for the more mature couples. trips were ok, food was ok too , good value for what we paid. p.s watch out for the mossies !!
