Falcão Mendonça is a charming place to stay. If you are on your way to the Douro, Falcão Mendonça is a place worth considering.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, with great bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable with great bed pillows. (I mention pillows, because, unfortunately, it was the poorest feature of most rooms we stayed in Portugal except for Falcão Mendonça and Hotel Sana Silver Coast in Caldas da Rainha. I would have given a higher rate to most rooms I stayed in Portugal if the bed pillows were better.)
Upon arrival and settling in, we went to the courtyard and enjoyed a nice bottle of local cold white wine.
Based on the service and quality encountered at Falcão Mendonça, I asked Dona Dulce for a Estalagem booklet so I could reserve rooms at two other Estalagens on our way back to Lisbon from the Douro. None of them compared to the quality and service we encountered at Falcão Mendonça!
Many thanks to Dona Dulce and her staff for a great stay and for the good service and friendliness.More
