Staff,Accomodations,Beach. I extended my stay from 3 days to 10.When I checked in early on 26jul09, I had driven from Guarda after having a medical procedure done the day before and was very uncomfortable. The two ladies who checked me in were absolutely delightful, picked up my spirits right a way. They were also very knowledgable about the area for many miles around. The accomadations were much more than I expected It was a fully stocked, large apartment,not a studio as advertized.A Very pleasant surprise.Housekeeping noticed that the door to the balcony did not open properly and staff was up the following day fixing it, I had not mentioned it to anyone. The beach is superb. It was perfect for what I needed
Many things right in this hotel. Excellent reception staff, courteous helpful and knowledgeable. Spacious apartment. Excellent for beach and rail travel. Reliable housekeeping each day. Additional cost for seaview was very worthwhile -would not have wanted any other aspect. Lots of storage space and large reception hall to apartment, which we used as our child's bedroom rather than using the living room in this one bedroomed apartment. Nice new smeg fridge in our apartment. Settled into a relaxed routine very easily. Rooms tired to my view and give a 70s feel from colours to carpets and tiles; other than that fine. Rooms missing a radio, which is not that costly to provide. An iron in the room would have been nice, but they were available through housekeeping. No sense of catering for those that like traditional tea! Used jug as the pot and kettle needed to be a cooking jug for the electric stove.
The appartment was nice and big with a good view on the ocean. It was very close to the beach. Every evening there was a concert next to our hotel which was very noisy. Luckily it always stopped at midnight, The elevators were very slow.
We like the kindness of all hotel staff and closeness of beach, restaurants ,shops and train station. We like that the entry in hotel was able to all 24 hour.
Very helpful staff and apartment very clean with fresh towels every day. There was no hairdryer in the apartment. It had to be borrowed from reception - if available.
We have stayed at this hotel before. The staff are very helpful and courteous. The location is excellent as it is right opposite the beach.
A friendly and helpful staff. The room were really clean. breakfast not included € 7.00 each person
My wife and I were welcomed very eefficiently by the English speaking staff and our room was comfortable and well serviced. The location was very close to the beach but we were disappointed that the sea view requested was seen only from a balcony.obliquely. The lighting was very dim and inadequate for reading.
Great location, five minutes from the station, and one minute from the beach. Espinho is about 30 mins from Porto and 2hrs30 from Lisbon (direct). We were travelling with two small children (8 months and 2yrs) so the apartment was ideal - good size kitchen with Smeg appliances, although a microwave would have been handy for sterilising baby bottles. There's a casino next door and a night club somewhere in or near the hotel but we couldn't hear anything from the 12th floor. We were there for the last three days of the Festa de Espinho with concerts and fireworks directly outside the hotel, from our balcony we had the best views in town! Good location and facilities make this an ideal place to stay for families with young children. A small table and chairs on the balcony would have been nice but not really a negative.
The view is amazing, the apartment is really spacious. Loved staying here, it is a lot better than the reviews led me to believe. Firm beds, but this is a portugal thing I think.
nice helpful staff and location
The proximity to Lisbon without having to pay for parking. The oportunity to the beaches and historic sights.
Staff very friendly and helpful. They speak French and English. Room spacious and comfortable. Basic gym available for free. Steam room and sauna for 5€. We booked for one night and finally stayed for two. Good value for money. Problem with hot water. We did not have really hot water in the room and were told that it takes time to go through the system if hotel is empty (out of main touristic season).
Very kind staff, the facilities are good and the hotel is well located and quiet. The jacuzzi wasn't warm and the turkish bath was cold
The hotel was lovely but there is nothing to do in the area, not for tourist. The beach was 40 mins walk away, its along walk.....
Pleasant facilities, huge bed and quiet room
the room. no.
quiet, large rooms, friendly staff, Internet access for free no furniture on the balcony, the location (Esmoriz is not a very nice city), the are no English or French speaking staff in the Restaurant
lovely staff, nice rooms- simple, but spacious and clean. good facilities. very quiet. big beds. 10 out of 10. nothing that i personally disliked- however if i had been there mid summer when it was very hot i might have found it a bit out of the way- 10-15 minute walk to the train station, 30-45 minutes to beach.
The breakfast is the best aspect of this hotel, and the possibility to borrow bikes for touring. The hotel is awkward in several ways. The church bells (300m away) can be heard from 7 am onwards. The pillows were spongy, and the door to the balcony did not close perfectly (room 101).
Excellent location infront of the beach, very good facilities for swimming and sauna. The personnel was very polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The breakfast is perfect, several fruits and local bread. Too many rules in the swimming pool
Convenient for beach and town Looking a little dated compared with when we last stayed there 36 years ago
Private parking close to entrance. Excellent service by the porter. Close to the beach and Casino. Good offer as to breakfast. Room view not very interesting!Maybe view as per price.
The hotel has a good location and it is easy to go from this place to visit Porto. The location is excellent, directly at the beach at the Atlantic ocean. Breakfast buffet is good. The hotel really needs some renovation, everything looks a little too heavy used. Carpets look dirty.
received upgrade without asking, very good buffet breakfast, very central situation. nothing
Break fast was very varied and catered for everyones taste. We were up graded to a sea front room it was very good for the money. The mini bar did not have a very good choice if you chose to stay in your room.
Loved the 70s decor, beautifully maintained (or restored?). It's a real period piece. The staff on check in were very friendly though not so much so the next day. Not enough pillows on the bed to comfortably sit up!
Position No outdoor pool and poor lighting in the rooms
The staff was excellent and helpfull. Prime location on the city center and beach front. Many restaurants and shops nearby. The room was very dusty and the air conditioner over-dried the air. Bad insulating windows caused too much cold air in the room.
Staff were excellent and very helpful
