    Very good

    Its location near the seaside,

    The breakfast is poor and without much variation, some of the staff are not so friendly (but others are ...), the so called business center consists of an outdated and very slow pc (and one has to pay for its use)

    Very good

    Nice room in front of the see / friendly staff

    Breakfast buffet was somehow poor / local restaurant not very suited for a family with children

    Superb

    We have stayed at this hotel several times and have always enjoyed our stays. We have used the hotel for a base for touring around the area. We have lately just used the hotel for relaxation it serves both uses equally. The breakfast are varied and filling.We have used the dining room for evening meal and found the food exellent the service superb. We will be visiting this hotel again.

    Very good

    Modern hotel at the seaside in coastal town outside Porto. Swimmingpool and good access to parkinh outside the hotel. The balconies towards the seaside were lovely. A fine restaurant in the hotel with good service and fodd.

    Just outside the hotel there is a lighthouse and a foghorn warning fishermen of low tide. This hoots all day and all night with 10 seconds interval. You kind of get used to it but earplugs are recommended for those who sleep lightly. The business center in the hotel was not working very well for those wanting to keep up with their business. Old browser? The wifi was not working well either since there was a rationing of access. We got 30 minutes access in four nights... There´s an internet café just next door though.

    Location is a must! Hotel is in Ocean front. Very calm and a friendly and efficient staff. The restaurant is really good!

    I think the breakfast room layout could be improved.

    Superb

    Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful room and pool. Breakfast fine und really good cocktails. Food served in the hotels restaurant was very delicious. Not far away from porto/barcelos/braga/vinho de castelho.

    we booked a doubleroom but we got two single beds instead of one double bed. Make sure to tell the hotel in advance that you want a double room. But it didn't really matter, cause everything else was just perfect.

    Fabulous

    Hotel was very smart and interior was cool although the weather was hot during our stay. Plenty of sun loungers around the pool and lovely drinks served and lunch if required. Sea view balcony was large sunny and lots of things to see.

    Only food was formal dining in the evening. Snacks at the bar would have been good. Shops and restaurants were not really within walking distance.

    Fabulous

    Spacious,pool,games,gym and tennis,on the beach front and a nice reasonably priced restaurant.

    Can get woken by alarms on the beach front,coastguard safety,large siren at 4am to notify boats there too close to shore and small beeps(repeatedly) to notify people the in shore can be dangerous due to river flow into sea.

    Very good

    Very pleasant and relaxed; charming. A tastefully designed hotel that attracted an international clientele, including many Portuguese - a strong recommendation. In addition, the staff were polite, professional and friendly which made us feel welcome.

    Very good

    It was a very comfortable and pleasant stay,in a casual atmosphere.

    It was very noisy and there was a noise from outside, a tooter, not constantly, mostly at the and of the day and in the middle of the night.

    Fabulous

    Excellent. We wish we'd stayed longer. Our room was fantastic. It had a jacuzzi bath wich was a pleasant surprise.

    The sun took a long time to reach parts of the pool area meaning if you weren't quick enough to get a spot in the sun it made for a rather chilly time.

    Beautifully appointed hotel, excellent food, near beach, great swimming pool what else would you need.

    I felt thet the bar charged too much for drinks.
