Pros: The boss of the hotel welcomed us when we arrived in the afternoon. We had a chat and she treated us with some local port wine, very nice. We then got to see our room, if we wanted we could change rooms after which we liked the most. All the rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast was really good with fresh fruits such as mango, strawberries and melon. They had freshly baked bread and plenty of different toppings. They helped us with different bookings for what to do and restaurants. Very friendly. We would highly recommend this place and we hope to come back soon.
Cons: Good to know is that the area is very quiet. Highly recommend you to get there by car.

The breakfast that they put on is lovely, but the real charm is the location of the hotel in a nice vineyard with glorious views over the Douro valley. The swimming pool in the main residence is also very pleasant.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an amazing stay at the Quinta da Portela and it greatly exceeded our expectations, we were more than satisfied with our choice. The location is beautiful and quiet, you can have a really nice view of the vineyards. The rooms were really clean and we were provided with everything we needed, even with free Porto and wine! The staff is really friendly and make you feel like at home; they gave us suggestions about places to visit and restaurants around, set up the fire in the house, and gave us a free tour of their museum (which was the old location for making wine). The breakfast was really amazing and huge! The food was prepared in our own kitchen and everything was placed beautifully on our table. The ladies that prepared and cleaned our breakfast were among the nicest people we have met. At night, we had some amazing guards at our door: a family of 3 cute and gentle dogs! We greatly recommend Quinta da Portela since it was one of our favorite places to stay in Portugal and an unique experience.
Cons: Everything was perfect!

Pros: This property blew away our expectations (and they were already high!). From the gorgeous panoramic views, the friendly and helpful staff, the decadent breakfast made and served in our own kitchen each morning, the private tour and wine tasting of their winery, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Quinta da Portela is a hidden gem and is worth the drive to the valley just to stay here! Thank you so much everyone!

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property Nice pool area Good gym Great spa Very good breakfast Friendly staff
Cons: The bed was too soft, no pillow menu Rooms need an update Food was ok but in a Hotel like this you expect better Wines were overpriced
8.8 Excellent
Cons: They did not offer information about their services
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Exceptional stay at a unique property. Staff were wonderful and everything felt special.
Cons: It's difficult to explore the area by public transport from the property, and cars booked via the resort are expensive. Regua is the closest station and a 10 minute drive €12. Best to hire a car if staying a few days here.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Outstanding service, went above and beyond. Spa was great as well and the facilities are top notch.
Cons: We didn’t luck out with weather but that is out of their control! An outdoor hot tub is the only thing missing here.

Pros: staff were excellent; breakfasts excellent; wonderful spa and treatments; comfortable bar area
Cons: storage in room was average; we has a free wine tasting but sadly some of the others at the tasting were rude and talked over the staff member; telephone etiquette at the outdoor pool should be enforced

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Loved the peaceful environment, great facilities and top class staff. We had a great stay.
Cons: BBQ but management dealt with it very well.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect and the hotel's infra is incredible. Everything you would expect on a Six Senses hotel in terms of environment and activities offered. The décor has more to an American luxury chain such as like Four Seasons rather than the local Quintas', but that is the price you pay for the comfort offered, after all, the place is huge! Concierge on arrival was very efficient and promptly arranged the specific visits to local wine producers we requested, as well as transportation. Another positive point was the private wine tasting and explanation provided by Mario from the wine cellar. He surely knows his bottles! The wine cellar's variety is excellent and allows you to access the best available in the the region, which sort of mitigates the considerable price mark-up. Food is just ok, not outstanding. Our overall experience was within our expectations.
Cons: Service. It isn't exactly bad, but tends to be slow and confusing. Unfortunately, this seems to be a major problem in Portugal when it comes to luxury services. Examples: breakfast "table arranging" system is confusing and you struggle to get your hot beverages without having to order 2-3 times. In addition, the guy entitled to operate the eggs (at an open bar in the middle of the main restaurant, which makes some heavy smoke and smell) is frenetically speaking to the staff, constantly clinking his tools and when I ordered egg white omelettes, not only he made that "turning eye emoji" face as slipped the interjection "misericórdia" (something like "for God's sake"). The sommelier at the main restaurant took so long to appear that we had already given up waiting for his advise when he came to take our order. I don't think the problem are one or two employees, let me be clear. Staff doesn't treat you bad, they just lack the training needed to service at a place like Six Senses. Gym should have more cardio machines, as only 2 treadmills seems little in peak times. I would highly recommend a stair simulator. The SPA massages are above average but really guys, "best in Europe" is a bit pushy. Definitely not comparable to the service offered by the Six Senses chain in Asia. Bonus: management team should really advise staff to be careful when addressing Brazilian clients (which are considerable in the hotel, for obvious reasons). I do understand there's a difference in the way Portuguese people are more "straight to the point" when communicating, but it is very easy to be misunderstood as rude. This is probably what happened when I called reception asking for an iron for my room and was told that there was none available. By the way, really? At a 800EUR/night 5* hotel?
Quinta De Tourais - Lamego - Building

9.8 Excellent (120 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A little gem in the Douro Valley. The owner recommended a place for lunch which was fantastic. We have missed the wine tasting but asked if we could try it the next day. It was worth the wait. I could have stayed to whole day eating breakfast as the food was amazing. The room was large and comfortable and everybody was extremely welcoming and friendly.
Cons: There is nothing not to like.

Pros: Manuela was so kind and helpful. She even drove us to a restaurant in town and came to drive us back

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean. Friendly. Excellent breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If I could give this a higher rating, I would. This property had the highest rating we had ever seen on booking.com (9.9), so we decided to give it a try. I can't say enough good things about this place- It is on the Quinta de Tourais winery, run by an amazing family. We were welcomed and offered some samples of their wine. Then "Melita" arranged for us to have dinner at a nearby winery and arranged to DRIVE US THERE. The breakfast she served us the next morning was amazing- all directly from their property-the eggs, fruit, cheese. It was amazing. This family obviously loves what they do, and delivering this superb service comes to them naturally. THE BEST PLACE I HAVE STAYED ON BOOKING.COM!
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that we only stayed for one night. I would have loved to stay longer. We will definitely be back. :)
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Manuela and her son made us so welcome. This is a great little Quinta in a beautiful location.

Pros: Lovely stay at a family run B&B. The staff were fantastic, they picked us up from the train station and gave us some great recommendations. The location was peaceful and it was nice to relax in the pool with some of the wine made there. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The property is very close to small town of Peso Da Regua. The owner, Manuela, gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants and they were all very good. The breakfast is very good and the view of vine covered hillsides from the patio is beautiful. The suite is large (ours had 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms) and very quiet. You can request a tour of the winery facility on the property. The friendly and helpful owners of the Quinta made the place extra special!
Cons: The bed is of average comfort.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely bed and breakfast. The rooms are gorgeous and well-appointed with wood floors and inviting tile restrooms. Quiet, gorgeous views of the Douro Valley hillsides from every angle. Nearby town of Peso da Regua fronts the river and is a lively spot with several very good restaurants. We dined at the warm and charming Tasca da Quinta -- highly recommended. Best of all, host Manuela and her staff are warm and inviting and offered a delicious breakfast on the terrace upstairs. Excellent wines for sale as well.
Cons: Nothing to report here. We enjoyed it all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Charming Quinta with delightful hosts. Manuela, her team and her family did everything possible to make us welcome. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and delicious breakfasts. The wines are very good, as is the family restaurant in Regua - unusual small plates and local dishes. We would love to return.

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: You will not find a better place to stay. Elisabete and her mother were the most welcoming and helpful, leading us to great places to eat and amazing experiences in the valley. The house was incredibly clean, breakfast was amazing and a pool overlooking the valley was the cherry on top. I would give it a 15/10 if I could. Would highly recommend her wine tasting (her wine was better then any we tasted at other vineyards) and the picnic. Would stay again in a heartbeat
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Out of all the excellent locations we had the pleasure to visit throughout our 16 days trip in Portugal in which we visited many outstanding places, this one takes the crown. Marvelous location, lovely room, delicious breakfast but above all, an incredibly welcoming host! Elisabete is simply a wonderful person who will welcome you in the warmest fashion. Please try her locally produced wines, they are truly divine. An experience not to miss!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great views, very clean and extremely friendly and helpful host. Elisabeth and her morher are wonderful people. We recomened also the breakfast and the picnic.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I recently stayed at the Quinta do Fojo for three days, and my time there was so much more enjoyable, special and meaningful than I could have imagined. I did not realise quite how charming it would be, and I was definitely not ready for the beautiful energy and personality of Elisabete. She and her mother hold their house with genuine smiles and endless help. It is very clear that they love hosting. The breakfast is a feast of the highest quality, and it's exquisitely laid out, complete with homemade jams and local treats. Take up the offers on the salads and picnic baskets - you will not regret it! Whatever you want to do - scenic drives, local walks, fine foods - then Elisabete has the perfect recommendation in her pocket. It's walkable from Regua, Lamego isn't far, and you have gorgeous river walks and vineyard views on your immediate doorstep. The prices are extremely reasonable and worth every penny - the house is very clean but also an authentic home, full of history and character. I'm already planning my next holiday back to Q do Fojo, and hold fond memories of swimming in their pool, seeing the sun shine down on the mountains. Whilst the location is fantastic, what makes this place exceptional is the host and her mother. This is a place of great energy that will help give you the holiday you desire. What a discovery.More Date of stay: June 2019
Cons: Really - nothing! I liked everything. Perhaps the sun terrace could do with some plants, or fresh paint, but I know that the host is freshening the whole house up as it goes. It's a home stay delivering a really high end service.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and helpful host! We ordered the picnic dinner and it was absolutely fantastic! We ate outside watching the sun set over the stunning Douro Valley. Great recommendations from our host Elisabette on best sights to explore nearby! We aim to visit again in the future :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Elisabete is a wonderful host. She has welcomed us in her home, like it was our own. She is friendly and also very helpful. She gave us a few lovely tips for discovering the area. Also the breakfast, wine tasting and picknick basket, organised by her, were amazing. The house itself is beautiful. It lies on a hill in the Douro valley. The winding road up to the house gives an immediate romantic feel. The rooms in the house are georgious, clean and equipted with everthing needed. Although the bathrooms are shared, this is no problem at all. The bathrooms are clean and comfortable as well. We highly recommend staying with Elisabete, to really experience the Douro valley, the wineries and the lovely inhabitants.
Cons: Nothing at all

Pros: Wow! This Casa is a real gem. It is perfectly situated and with the most beautiful views. Breakfast was delicious with a lovely variety to please all appetites. Carla's home baked cakes and pastries were unbelievable. Julia went out of her way to get specific food for my elderly father, who only wanted oats and bananas for breakfast. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. Every day we were left with a little gift from our wonderful Hosts - from chocolates to wine from their own vinyards. The swimming pool looked so inviting, unfortunately our time was too short to enjoy it. Evenings were nothing short of magical with the full moon and fairy lights lighting our way. Carla and Julia want only for their guests to feel welcome, at home and looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for them. By the end of our stay we felt like old friends. I highly recommend this lovely home and super Hosts for anyone wanting a relaxing stay. I hope to return someday soon!!
Cons: Everything was truly Perfect!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing accommodation, once you make your way to Penedono! Just follow the view to the wild and wonderful castle, and you will find Hotel Medieval right at its foot. We arrived to a warm and cordial welcome by João and his family, who saw to any of our needs and gave us info about the area. Breakfast (included) is INCREDIBLE, with your choice of almost anything you can imagine: eggs cooked to order, perfect homemade yogurt, excellent bread / toast, ham and cheese if desired, a big glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice, and of course coffee however you like it. Go no further for lunch or dinner; the family chef is amazing, lots of choice for quality meals--the best we've had--at great prices, including fine house wine. There's tea and coffee in the spacious rooms, plus comfy beds, great lighting, the best shower yet (and we've had many)--and we had a balcony with a little table and 2 chairs. Hated to leave! Visit the castle more than once; walk the little road around it, and wind your way through the streets. Worth a couple of days, or more, if you have the time.
Cons: Um, nothing. Perfect place to stay at a remarkable, off-the-beaten-track destination.

It was so nice to see how Portugal is working to develop tourism and create jobs for employees in small towns. We enjoyed the other guests we met at this property, too, over a lovely breakfast. The hosts created a very convivial atmosphere. We enjoyed having dinner at a cafe in town overlooking roses and a valley sparkling with lights.

Pros: We booked on very short notice for our stay in the Douro-Valley and enjoyed a very warm welcome by our host-family: they even cooked a dinner for us which we enjoyed with the other guests in their spacious kitchen - and it was delicious! The room is in a historical family owned property, was spacious and had a small balcony where we could enjoy the morning sun. Breakfast was one of a kind, ranging from extremely delicious homemade marmalades, local cheese to fresh cake - so many things to try and love. The owners really create a home away from home and we can absolutely recommend staying here.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet private location, breakfast was really good, with a large selection of continental style food (not hot food, eggs or full English go elsewhere), I wish I had the stomach to keep eating. The hosts are outstandingly nice and accommodating, they did all they could for me and my friends that were also staying there. Honestly the hosting couple are overwhelmingly nice. Large pool available, which was mostly empty so it felt like a private pool all the time. They only have 4 or 5 rooms available so the entire property feels very cosy and private. This looks great for kids too, lost of room to run around and tire them out.
Cons: I think the mattress was a bit on the hard side, maybe too firm for my taste. The sleeping pillows were hidden in a wardrobe, which I didn't find out until the next morning, so we slept on the 'cosmetic' cushions, which wasn't ideal on the skin, I think leaving the sleeping pillows on the bed might be a good idea instead of tucking them away in the wardrobe, just because there might be clueless people like me that didn't think of checking for them before going to bed. Although, with that said, I slept like a rock anyway :)

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The views, the surrounding, the location, the food in the bistro.
Cons: We didn’t feel like we received any personalised service (wine tasting, tour around the estate) as guests staying there. We just felt like we were treated like any other Duoro tourist. Service in the restaurant in the evening was weird - no one was really keen to talk to us or ask us where we are from/strike up a conversation/provide recommendations in the region. Everything felt very ‘forced’. No iron? The big tour groups (4 large buses) swamped us and made our stay less ‘boutique’.

Cons: It is not clear where is reception or check-in. We signed up for a tour/tasting, but it was overlooked by a larger group (we still got accommodated into another time). Did not like that we cannot bring the alcohol we can buy at the shop into dinner at the bistro, where the alcohol has a mark up.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: I'm so happy we stayed at Quinta da Gricha! This was one of the most beautiful locations we've ever stayed at. The property has just 4 rooms, across 2 floors, so you really feel like you have the place to yourself. The dining room has a big 8-person table which is where breakfast and dinner are served. The private chef for dinner was amazing - we dined twice during our stay and loved every bite (and the wine that went along with it). The pool area is a dream, so luxurious and with amazing views over the valley.
Cons: As other reviewers have mentioned, the road up is a bit scary - one lane wide (but cars go both ways) but totally worth it.
