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
Great view, Nice room, Staff friendly, Pools great especially for the kids, Good buffet brkfst in morning. Would definitely reccommend with kids.
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...
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
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.
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.
Special thanks to lady who checked we in. Very excellent service
Calm countryside hotel with short distance to different histiric sites
Room was really comfortable and very clean. My room was on the sea front and had a great view of the ocean as well as the surrounding area like the bull ring.
The closeness to the beach, the size of the room reception staff always helpful. Breakfasts where dis organized and on all the days the full compliment of choice was not available.
the location and the pool The staff at the front desk extremely rud
Location is excelent. Garden and pool great. Bathroom small, bath very small. Bathroom extract fan out of order.Bed mattress very hard.
The hotel has signs of being recently re-furbished. I stayed there when previously owned by the Accor group. It is still a very "70''s" hotel - down to the organ player in the bar. But no complaints and ideal for arriving late at Oporto airport if you are travelling north
Very good hotel. Very friendly service personel. Clean and comfortable environment.
Excellent accueil. Chambres très propres et bien aménagées. Finitions impeccables. Excellent service dans les chambres. Excellent petit déjeuner. Tous les critères d'un trois étoiles au meilleur niveau. Accès aisé grâce au métro de Porto. Location de vélos à un prix très faible. On parle le français. Aucun!
Really nice hotel. Very clean & well maintained. Staff were excellent - very friendly & helpful. Great value for money. Hotel is at least 15 mintues walk from the beach. Hotel does provide bikes.
The service was excellent; the rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was very good. The garden: beautiful.
Quite, clean, good breakfast,easy access, staff kindness Not noticed
Great staff, very good hotel
Excellent staff Free Internet None
A/C was turned off... at the afternoon my room was a sauna. The photo of the room i payed for was not the room i was given... not staying there anymore
Reception staff, cleanliness, casino oriented décor. Breakfast needs improvement. Although there was a good selection of breads, the cheese and cold cut selection should be improved, especially considering the excellent cheeses available in Portugal. Fresh fruit should be cut and ready to eat. Guests cannot be expected to cut and peel pineapples and oranges with butter knifes. The hotel should provide beach towels and free covered parking.
breakfast was really nice also loved the room with the terrace with sea view
Hotel clean and staff all very helpful. Central location handy for the shops and also the Metro system for a direct link into Porto and the airport
Staff were excellent and spoke good english and were very helpful. Excellent buffet breakfast. Gorgeous location with spectacular sea views. Although very clean, the room was a little tired, particularly the bathroom, which could do with refurbishment.
I was upgraded to a better suite In our original room, no shelves, so power points...we came from Australia with cameras, phones, computer etc need power point and hair straightener needed power point in bathroom. No face cloths either.
The staf were friendly enough. This was a very over priced hotel for what you actually get. The room was tiny, no view of the sea, it was located over the airconditioning ducts, so very very noisy the entire time, was very let down by the price and room. i would not have paid €50 for the room, so was upset about having to pay €75!
Best location opposite beach modern fishing port, close to old city centre (neither big nor particularly scenic), professionally built and managed hotel with staff going out of their way to contact us after departure for a pair of forgotten sunglasses! Next door casino gambling seems to be the main attraction, given that the ocean can be rough and no swimming pool is available. Metro line to Porto. Free WiFi in lobby only for 1 hour. Copacabana-style high rise appartement blocks lining the shore north of the hotel, not what you expect in a quaint Portugese fishing town.
the wine the weather
Nice and charming family hotel, a nice place to be. Grapes ans kiwis above your head everywhere. Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Good price/quality, but don't expect great luxury. The bed (ans shower) were to short, I felt like a giant and I am only 1m84. The breakfast was nice, but a bit more variation would be good. You need a car to get there.
Excellent value for money and very friendly and helpful staff
Nice place with a good atmosphere!
Our room had its own balcony with a view over the surrounding countryside.
Staff absolutely oriented to customer.
Beautiful setting on the Caminho Portugues. The owner, Antonio, was friendly, helpful and spoke English. We were very comfortable and the surroundings were quite luxurious.
the staff was very friendly and they were good with children there was lots of space for the children to play
I liked everything. From the friendly service to the lovely vineyards, from the swimming pool to the great and comfortable room. It was a very good surprise to find such outstanding value for money “quinta” in the middle of the charmed Portuguese Countryside. The coffee served during the breakfast was of excelent quality, but I would love some Portuguese Cakes (Cenoura ou Amendoas) to take with it.
Very helpful and courteous staff. Well-run and good value for money. Private parking, good, varied breakfast for a two-star hotel. Very decent room for the money. Sadly, it is a good 30 minutes walk from the central area (20 mins to the nearest beach bar) - ie a six-euro taxi ride.
Very kind and helpfull manager and staff! Perfect. No.
Excellence of the staff and the lady who runs/owns hotel. Always took an intrest in our stay and spoke very good english. would use this hotel again.
excellent staff and fully conversant in english, close to some good and great value restaurants, and the breakfast was more than just the usual continental - you actually got omelets - and they were warm!
the hotel is a very good standard.the breakfast is excellent with a rooftop view.the owner is very nice,very helpful with excellent english.lovely bar.
People at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful-especially about the newly introduced system to pay for the highways in Portugal. Hotel is located very convenient both to visit Porto and go to the beach. We got the electric key for the room that was encoded incorrectly. At the second day stopped working, so we couldn't enter the room. When we went to the reception they fixed it, but it was some inconvenience.
friendly staff, nice room Have not stayed in any other hotel in portugal, but comparing to the equivilant ones in Spain, the facilities were not as good. breakfast was very basic
Great staff. Perfect location, Our room was fairly spatious and very bright. Very poor breakfast. Could be cleaner. Furniture is a bit outdated.
I speak very little Portuguese but the excellent and helpful staff made my stay very enjoyable.I have used hotels in Povoa de Varzim before but never stayed here, I will be doing so in future. Anyone spending a few days in Porto would be well advised to slip up here for a night or two, it's so easy by Metro! Fantastic seafood available just around any corner from the hotel.
The hotel is actually on the very seaside so in an excellent location, the staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The breakfast was also good. This is a good hotel for a reasonable price.
Breakfast and the breakfast room is very boring.
