the room and the view
I enjoyed the ambience, particularly the terrace for lunch. I enjoyed the architecture of the hotel. I enjoyed the view from my room which was spacious and very comfortable, especially the pillows. the food was good and the senior waiter was excellent. Nothing
Excellent view over the river Douro. Very good location to relax in a extravagant/luxory ambiance. Small balcony with two chairs or the canvas chairs near the pool let the Portwine taste even better. it is difficult to discover surrounding area by foot (no boardwalk, no hiking trails). Friendly staff, yet poorly trained.
The wonderful welcome complete with a glass of port on the terrace - the best check in ever Lack of coffee table in junior suite
Swimming Pool It is not a case of 'not liking' - if you are asked me to rate the restaurant I would have stated 'poor to fair'. Being a person with immense experience in food and wine - and taking groups to many European wine regions, I thought the hotel and service superb but the restaurant was in no way compatible. The 'degustation menu' was extremely disappointing, the wines were not served at the right te
Wonderful location and views. A stylish, comfortable hotel I would like a towelling dressing gown in the room
The Port was great! Location in the valley and comfort of our room with our own balcony--excellent. Cleaning staff was prompt and responsive, very nice. The lighting was a little dim, it was not easy to read. Could use brighter bulbs at least at the bedside.
Peace and quiet in a beautiful location. The hotel is delightful and charming. We had a room with a terrace where we could enjoy views of the river. The restaurant was beautifully presented but the kitchen did not live up to it's over-priced menu. We were very disappointed.
Very peaceful and tranquil
It is one of the best hotels that I have already stayed. It is in a calm, beautiful and romantic place. It is wonderful!
Beautiful location and immaculate attention to detail. Provided everything we could possibly need. None
The fantastic view, the quietness, the portuguese kindness, the wine, everything...
Superb location, attentive service, wonderful food. Fantastic - we will return.
The location and staff were first rate and better than could be expected. None
The environment. The grave yards, the weather and sightseeing. The AC noise
On arrival we were shown the hotel and quinta. We were met with great hospitality and felt welcome at once. Dinner was delicate and clearly made with much care.
Spacious rooms, clean and comfortable Price for night not adjusted with the services offered, mainly the very poor breakfast, lots of better options in the region for 125€ a night
The staff and location are wonderfull. A great place to relax and enjoy the wine and country
A beautiful setting and a well run, well equiped,and friendly hotel
The Quinta itself is very beautiful, with plenty of spaces to explore and great views over the Douro Valley. Nothing to point. Excellent experience.
Room and facilities were superb and memorable. Views were breathtaking and worthy of many photos. Wines were first-rate and the tour of the facility was very interesting. Can even walk among the vines. Glad we stayed there! This is not about the hotel itself but the drive to it on a very harrowing and treacherous road. The road is a switchback and very narrow, only wide enough for one narrow car but is considered two-way. This makes the 15 km. drive to the hotel about an hour! The infrastructure needs to be improved, because the guests are absolutely exhausted (speaking for ourselves) by the time of arrival to the hotel.
Very poor breakfast (choise)
Kindness Staff and see sight No cold minibar in my room
Stunning sorrounding, super friendly staff, a real gem. Be aware that you have a 25 minutes ride off the main street in the Douro vineyards. Not negative, just be aware....
The environment The air conditiong was not functioning well!
Helpful and knowledgeable staff and wonderful setting.
This is one of the finest places we have ever stayed in. The hospitality was amazing. The family owners could not have been more friendly, helpful or obliging. Beautiful food and wine added to our enjoyment of a fantastic stay in stunning surroundings.
The family atmosphere and the warm welcome from all the staff. The best place We've stayed in Portugal so far.
The hospitality of the family who run the Casa was wonderful. The food, both at breakfast and at the evening meal was superb. The building has been renovated but still retains a genuine antique feel to it. The rooms were lovely,very clean with en-suite facilities. The location may not suit everybody as the house is situated in a mountain top village and is in a fairly remote area of the Douro. You really need a car to access it and if you are not a confident driver, the road up the mountain can seem quite hairy. That said, you will have to go a long way to match the overall experience of a few days here, especially if you are a Port wine lover !!
Fantastic!!! The views are to die for, the place is unique and utterly delightful and the warmth of the welcome we received from the wonderful Maria and family was quite out of this world. Not to be missed. Leaving
extremely friendly staff, showing great hospitality and very nicely decorated rooms
Fantastic experience in The Douro wine region. Will always remember the never ending supply of freshly baked cakes for breakfast. Also, really enjoyed sampling the owner's own Port and wine!
incredible hospitality. port on the house, long extensive dinner (and cheap), tasty luxurious breakfast
the family was very welcoming because of the language problem we did not understand that we could also eat in the evening
Maria, Arturi and Paolo were super friendly and accomodating. The food and wine were delicious. Good value for money. Beautiful setting amongst the vineyards with pool and view of the Douro River. Arturi picked me up and delivered me to the train station. Nice place to meet international travelers. Family style dining. Can visit port vineyards in the area. Having to leave.
The family that runs Casa Cimeira couldn't have been any nicer and accommodating. They were one of the reasons our trip to the Douro region was so enjoyable. It felt more like staying with family then staying at a hotel.
