Villa Sandini Hotel & Spa
Reviewed September 13, 2013

For our first wedding aniversary, my husband made me a surprise and booked a romantic weekend on this lovely hotel.
The hotel is an old convent that has been restored. The chapel was also restored.
All the hotel is decorated with glamour and extreme care. It seems that each piece was chosen in a very speacial way... like chosen for your own home.
My husband booked the Bridal Suite, which was amazing!! Very romantic, very well decorated, very large and very confortable. The suite has a lot of natural light. It's composed by a very nice bathroom (with shower and bath tub), a living room, with a large TV and a closet, and the room - very large and spacious. Here, every detail deserves your attention. Superb!
The grounds of the hotel are also well maintained and very clean. The gardens are very nice and they have a family of cute ducks here.
The indoor swimming pool is also pleasant and quiet. We did a massage too, but there was noise outside, because it was taking place a baptism party in the hotel, so it was hard to relax in the massage.
The staff is nice and prestative.
We had dinner once in the restaurant and the food is quite good and it was not expensive.
The only thing we didn't like was the breakfast. It was poor for a 5 stars hotel. There was not a great variety of things, and we think they coul improve this. The Orange juice is good, it's natural juice.

It's possible that, in the future, we'll return to this beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: Book the Bridal Suite!!!

A old portuguese villa transform into a very modern 5 stars hotel. The place and vue are beautiful. Quiet area in same time close to Porto. Sympatic and professional team. But what is really incredible are the rooms and decoration. I never find this anywhere else in Portugal. Prices are ok compare to the unique situation.
