Hotel Parque do Rio
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Esposende
Reviewed June 8, 2014

If you are tired of the noise and bustle,of the cities, come here to restore your soul! Between the sea and the river, this delightful spot is a true find. By no means luxurious, the rooms are large, and we had a balcony with a view over the river. There was a small kitchenette with microwave, tea kettle, sink, but no plates, cups or cutlery are included. At least a couple of plates or cups would be nice for foreign travelers!

We ate in the restaurant Papa Amoras and were very pleased with the food and service.

There is a boardwalk that runs along the river, which is a delight to walk along.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river....

Located in front of Cávado river and a vast line of sandy beaches, Hotel Parque do Rio in Ofir is in the middle of the Natural Parque of Ofir.
The original architecture is from the 60's but it was refurbished on 2011 with great design and details. The restaurant is to cry for more, with an outstanding view and gourmet cuisine ;)

Room Tip: ask for a suite with river view ;) either way, every room has balcony

i have stayed in this hotel with my wife the second week of september.
The hotel is a charming one, from the 70º, beautifuly design, owned by an arquitect, that maintain the place with a certain "panache". The decoration is made up to look like if we are in a cottage from the seventees. The ambiance is fantastic, the staff is veru helpfull and polite.
There is a nice swiming pool and a kids area.
You can use internet for free if you use your portatil pc.
The breakfast is serve in a beautiful room with a view to the pool and the wood thar surrounds the hotel.
The scenary is fantastic to a relaxation break: the beach is at 100 meters, and in the other side (at 20 meters) there is a beautiful river.
The only minus is the restaurant that need a renovation (but there is a good restaurant with a view to the beach/sea 200 meters from the hotel, and the price is very cheap)
The hotel has good promotions at is website (3 nights with Breackfast for 140 euros ...)

Cannot fault the staff, nothing was too much trouble for them, whatever it was. Rooms are spacious, with frequent linen changes. Perhaps they can update the place a bit, or re-arrange the facilities. Snack-bar food okay but the dinner suffered from a lack of fresh ingredients. Good breakfast although it only starts at 8am. Internet available but at E3.00 p/halfhour it is expensive, TV has two English news channels, occassionally english films/documentaries are shown with Portugese sub-titles, welcome if you are a lone female traveller.

We arrived, we saw, we left!
Dull, dark, stale smell, and a generally unloved appearance.
No restaurant facility availability for evening
Receptionist very pleasant.
Definitely not for an out of season visit!
