Ocean views. Very helpful, charming staff. Restaurant did it's best to acoomodate a vegetarian diet.
Very relaxing with lots of facilities. Any problems quickly resolved. The area is lovely and the beach fantastic. Will definitely visit again. Rooms not quite 4 star standard although very large, clean and comfortable. Day excursions arranged at the hotel would be useful, otherwise have to use a car or local buses which have limited destinations and unpredictable schedules
i've stayed at the hotel for the last four years and always enjoyed it. A good hotel for families, close to the beach with many restaurants within 10-15 minutes walk (in Fao, the next village). Very relaxing with pleasant gardens. Good facilities - bowling alley, tennis courts (2), putting green, pool. Helpful reception staff. At times, a shortage staff in the bar - particularly in the afternoon - meaning that service was a bit slow. The staff did their best but at times had too much to do. The hotel has a ten-pin bowling alley, however it is clear that no investment has been made in it in recent years - lack of (particualy ones for children) balls and many of those were damaged. At weekends in the summer, the resort is extremely busy and so parking is difficult, meaning that it may not be possible to enter the hotel car park. Breakfasts are ok, but not comparable with those in the hotel's 4 or 5 star Spanish equivalents.
All facillities were clean . Food at breakfast was good [I did not use the hotel resturant in the evening.] Plenty of entertainment on site The hotel corridors and rooms could do with some tlc. The carpets are threadbare and the air conditioning does not cool the rooms down . The smell of cooking as we approached our room was not nice.
situation close to the sea. no.
Excellent facilites and ideal location next to beach
the hotel was very well placed, the pool very good and clean, the staff were very attentive and excellent (especially the waiters in the restaurant), the restaurant food was really good at dinner the airconditioning settings could not be changed and it was very warm and muggy inside the room at night, we had to open the patio doors.
Cleansiness was very good, staff was friendly, food OK. Fitness equipment too old and not fully functional - very often "misused" by kids. Strange smell on the third floor - musty odor. Size of the pool.
The noise of the sea It´s too hard parking during week-end
The sea view rooms are worth the extra money, however all rooms face either the beach or the pool. The restaraunt was expensive compared to other local restaraunts and the food was not up to the expected standard. There was also no option for vegetarians.
All of it. The view from our room was superb. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The hotel facilities were attractive. Possibly the hot food at breakfast time could have been cooked less far in advance. The rest of the food was nice, with a good choice.
We really enjoyed our view of the ocean and walking on the beach, which is a short stroll from the hotel. Our room was large and comfortable, as were the public spaces.
Great Swimming Pool and nice Seafront Location The Food was copious but boring
Good location, more comfortable than your average three star resort hotel, polite attentive staff In the very nice smart restaurant you will get highly attentive service, but dinner may be a gamble. My fillet steak was as tough as old boots and the salad was absurdly overdressed. Consider going out for supper. The breakfast, however, was fine.
good food, good location.
food in restaurant,staff helpfulness,location for places of interset e.g. braga national parks.They even improved the weather!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very friendly, helpful staff. Clean hotel, well positioned for exploring northern Portugal. Pool area was attractive and there was a good play area for children. The town was traditional and local people were friendly. Location on esplanade was good for sea views. It suited our needs perfectly as a clean, quiet and safe location where we could base ourselves. Parking was easy.
Very beautiful and peaceful place. Lots of nature, quiet. It could be a bit better rennovated.
Location, staff Nothing - hotel could do with some decoration though!
Good location and excellent value for money
friendly staff , quiet location , excellant value
Our accommodation was secluded and relaxing and very enjoyable and obviously had a lot to offer in peak season. Our accommodation was possibly not what we expected for a 4 star hotel in terms of modern conveniences but overall was very enjoyable.
Great view, Nice room, Staff friendly, Pools great especially for the kids, Good buffet brkfst in morning. Would definitely reccommend with kids.
the old fashioned good manners and service which is hard to find nowadays in hotels. Fabulous view of sea and countryside no complaints. Heated pool would be nice
Calm countryside hotel with short distance to different histiric sites
Special thanks to lady who checked we in. Very excellent service
Location above a hill overlooking a fertile plain and the sea beyond. Spectacular views. Reception and dining room staff. Cleanliness. Rooms are a bit old and in need of renovation.
Fantastic location, good rooms, not a jumbo-hotel, but personal service and kind people. All is very good, just 1 observation to the hotel: please do something about the 'parasol' at the pool. These cheap umbrellas from a coffee brand tend to tumble and land into your face due to the winds. So if there is wind (which tends to be the rule, due to the hilltop on which the hotel is located) you have to sit in the sun, or find schelter at the bar...
I found the staff to be friendly and courteous.The views from the hotel. You would really need to have your own transport as it is a 10 minute drive to the town/beach.
The view and calm surroundings (off season!), outside of major cities. Staff was helpful without being pushy. Only minor things: lack of waste baskets in handy places, shower curtain that was too long
Friendly and helpful staff - garage parking for motorcycle. Good restaurant and bar next door. No Bar !
Modern, clean hotel. Good value for money. Limited parking spaces available.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly, particularly as we only stayed for one night en-route to our final destination.
This Hotel is not on the beach.It is in a side street approx 300 metres from beach.The staff couldnt be more helpful.The room was comfortable, clean, and excellent value for money. If we ever visit this location again we would certainly stay here again. Nothing to complain about.
Staff and Nono Miguel in particular Noise from adjoining bakery transport at 4:00 a.m.
value for money, courtesy and helpful staff Parking
The staff was very kind and nice. The cleaning and breakfast could be better for the price that we paid.
excelent breakfast, we could see de sea from our balcony and local people working their land, very nice and helpful staff everything was ok
Staff generally had good English language skills, were friendly and helpful. The hotel is fairly old but generally well maintained. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. Basic accomodation at a reasonable price. Location is closer to ocean than it first seems to be. Wireless internet was not reliably available in rooms and was difficult to use even in common areas due to connection issues. Parking is available only on street.
It was great, the staff really were friendly. --And since I'm vegetarian they went out of their way to make me a salad that truly was a work of art.
Quality/price rate Poor breakfest
Confortable, big room. It's easy to find and well located. The staff was nice and the breakfast was also good. You get your money's worth.
The size of the room and sitting room
It was quiet and convenient to the town. Moreover, there were three convenient choices of where to eat in the immediate vicinity.
the resort a fair amount of traffic noise
The family run hotel was very friendly and the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. The breakfast was fresh and presently nicely.
