“Confortable”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This is a nice modern hotel , well furnished and comfortable. Bathroom is spacious with a decent bath tub . I was there out of season and on business nearby so the surrounding area was not really something I explored. For sure a short walk to the town . At this quiet time also difficult to comment on service but in my experience it was OK.
Morning wake up call happened , on time and they use a reliable taxi company which they arranged to take me to Porto Airport, 25 min and 30 Euros.
Breakfast is fine if you want a continental style buffet but not if you want a full size cooked breakfast.The restaurant has a decent menu with adequate choice and the food is a good standard. The hotel also has its own underground car park which would be useful during the season when the frontage car park could fill up

Room Tip: Rooms at the back for almost total silence. The road at the front does not seem busy at night so sho...

This modern hotel has a great location by the main road into Vila do Conde city, which by the way you can stroll into at a mere 5 mn distance by foot, while enjoying the scenery. Inside, from the lobby, lounge, dining/breakfast room all is modernly decorated. Quite enjoyed the wooden floor in the bedroom, apparently standard for all. Rooms are nicely insulated from outside noise and if you get one in the back with a balcony you might even sunbath in the morning or the afternoon. Beds are also very comfy. Tried the indoor pool and gym, duly approved. Breakfast was enjoying, specially the freshly pressed orange juice.Definetly a noted pit stop for a next trip in the vicinity!

Room Tip: Any with river view

The hotel is a 5min walk into town, along a busy road. I would ask for rooms at the back (which have lovely sea views and a balcony, as well), if you are a light sleeper. Like many Portuguese "boutique" hotels, the lobby is vast , well decorated and furnished, as are all the public rooms. Then you enter a bedroom and the room has every shade of hideous brown or black imaginable, even down to a brown ceiling. Why a little more flair/joy in the selection of room colour isn't shown, is a mystery to me. However, the rooms are clean, a little on the small side and have balconies at the back. Beds are narrow and a little hard. Breakfast is varied. Staff are efficient, free parking and wifi is provided (despite what Booking.com says)
Very good value and recommended

This is not a 5 star waterfront SPA resort. Nor it pretends to be. It is a 4 star roadside hotel with a SPA, and budget prices (I paid 65 € for a double room /night). The localization is adjacent to the national road 13, so about the river views ..., please see photo !

The hotel is modern, quiet (at least our bedroom, opposite to the road), good size room, good bed and soft pillows, nice bathroom and toilettries, small balcony (for smokers ...), contemporary architecture and decoration, some wear but general impression is good.

Good professional service. Good breakfast (see exception after) and good food in the restaurant, average priced (14- 18 € per dish). A private underground parking is also available for the guests.

In winter, with cold weather outside, the heating was very powerful, we had to disconnect it at arrival. Acceptable SPA, nice indoor swimming pool, a bit crowded during the day but nice at 7 pm.

Regarding my ultimate confort tests, the quality of the orange juice for breakfast and the size of the towels, they were disapointing ... Lot of water in the juice ( juice ?) and minimum size towels. But these are just details. In general, 3 3/4 star hotel !

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are quieter !

In fact, we stayed in this hotel in February'10, and only for a night. It was a romantic escape. We enjoyed the room, it was confortable and nice. The bathroom is basic. There was no hot water, so we claimed. They said that there was a problem and they were trying to fix it. They told us to wait... but the time was passing and still no hot water. So, we had to take bath in cold water! My husband claimed, he wrote an e-mail, after leaving the hotel. The director was comprehensive and refund us in the half of the value we had payed. So, in the end we were satisfied. We also used the indoor swimming pool and relax facilites. The area is nice but it was crowded with families, kids and persons with only made noise!! It was disturbing try to relax in such an ambience. Although they call the surrounded area of the pool "Relaxing Area", it's impossible to get some rest there.
We had breakfast in the room, it was nice. The staff is very nice and there is a zen scent in the halls going to the rooms. We appreciated that.
