Within easy walking distance of town centre. Good breakfast. The hotel has been substantially altered internally in last year, not always by way of improvement, eg baths sacrificed for showers, refitted drawers would not open.
Very pleasent stay, room very clean and very confortable: A really good breakfast full of everything ( impossible to stay on a diet) . Excellent views. All the staff very nice. I will come back for sure. Actually i liked everything the only thing missing on a 4 star hotel is a restaurant.
The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The restaurant is nice and sunny. I thought the recent refurbishment was very nice in the rooms. However, I thought the corridors were too dark, especially for a hotel near the beach. I think there needs to be more staff so that the service in the hotel can run more smoothly.
The Staff was kind, the Hotel provides an excelent breakfast and the location is great! The road in front of the Hotel is a bit busy, but out of summer it's ok.
Excellent hotel with a brilliant swimming pool after walking on the Camino Nothing
The location is great, very close to the medieval city of Valença and the crossborder with Spain. The infra-structure is modern and the surroundings very calm. I've ordered a double room, but what I got was a twin. In this way, I recommed to specify your preference in the observations box while you are booking the room. The breakfast is in general terms good, however the breakfast room is very small for the size and capacity of the Hotel. One time I had to wait for other guests to finish their meal. The waiters are very competent, but due to the "confusion" their working in, they are always running, what makes you feel uncomfortable. However, if you go on a regular weekend (I've stayed on a 3 day-weekend, with Monday being a holiday), it must be more calm.
pool area very limited availability of drinks at the pool bar with the argument that the hotel is not placing more orders since they want to end with the stock - this indicates poor customer service and poor good management practices
Excellent rooms, service and breakfast. Valenca and Cerveira surounds were also very recomendable. Nothing at all.
Atmospeher Internet in room
surroundings helpful staff nice breakfast
Comfort and warmth
This is a superb hotel in terms of comfort and enjoyment, this was my second stay there so you can see I really enjoy it ! The restaurant is an excellent venue with superb food and helpful staff. I recommend this hotel its a gem.
Very clean, the breakfast was excellent, a lovely pool, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Hotel corridors were covered in works of art. The room had a balcony and a good poolside view. The breakfast was included. The best value European hotel that I have stayed in. Apart from breakfast the food available was poor but there is a cafe and a good restaurant nearby.
This is a nice modern hotel to stay for a few days, visiting the surroundings. The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel staff was really nice and very helpful. The hotel, apart form the breakfast does not serve any more meals. If you want to have dinner or lunch you'll have to go to a nearby restaurant that belongs to the same owner, but we do not recommend it at all. Well, is quite a shock coming from the clean cool contemporary approach of the hotel to one of the best portuguese/spanish and traditional kitsch examples. Absolutely vulgar.
Very good landscape. Very beatiful location. Very nice pool. Excellent place to rest.
Quiet, magnificient view to the valley, hospitality of the staff, it's a very romantic place.
Beautiful building and location with large, comfortable room. View is fantastic. Not within walking distance of much, but easy drive to some charming, touristy beach towns.
Wonderful landscapes, nice instalations and very courteous staff. No internet wireless available in the hotel main areas.
beautifull convent vieuw from garden towards river swimming pool also one for kids - free tennis court
The location and the facilities (in the main building) are quite good. The building is very nice. Some aspects were not up to par, for a four star hotel. There was a persistent sewage smell in the bathroom. The room heating was not available, although the wheather was already chilly, especially in the morning. The sofas in the room had the cloth worn, and the wadding was visible. One of the carpets in the room was rather dirty.
A quite pleasant hotel with a good position The early morning calls from the cockrels
clean rooms, very good breakfast, parking quite far away from the hotel
Lovely hotel in centre of Vila Praia de Ancora. Good staff, very comfortable room and huge choise of breakfast. all spotlessly clean
Very small room the place were we take a bath with aromoterapia is for a chil not a adult person
Pequeno almoço, instalações, simpatia, isolamento acústico Parque de estacionamento pequeno e algo longe do hotel, mas também condicionado pela localização do hotel numa parte antiga da vila.
First of all - the little town is so nice and with only few people, when out of season. The rooms, staff, pool area is really nice. Good breakfast (more like brunch). Nice with the balcony - it makes the room bigger. Just one insignificant thing... the breakfast did not have fresh fruit
The breakfast was excellent. The fact that the beds were separated...
it has a nice location a little bit noisy, bedframe was old and made a lot of noise
staff friendly and helpful. free internet and parking. breakfast was brilliant with lots of choice. swimming pool great and excellent beach for children only 3mins walk. supermarket next door. rooms cleaned everyday. nothing bad to say, everything was amazing and such good value for money.
very good location, excellent breakfast
Amazing reception staff and fabulous location - right on the beach. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Excellent location right on the beach. Basic hotel but clean and comfortable.
The location of the hotel is excellent and the rooms with a sea view are great. Good choice of channels on tv. Breakfast very poor for the price. Even when we asked to pay the extra for eggs we were told they did not have any as there was no custom for it. No parking at all anywhere. Had to park a good 15 minutes walk away.
On the beach. Definitely not 4-star - barely 3-star. Breakfast was miserly. Hotel and room were very basic. Booked for 3 nights only stayed 2 nights could not get a refund, but still didn't stay. note: you have to pay up-front, and there is a no refund policy. I wonder why?
Fantastic view from room, very easy access to beach and intersting local market No resteraunt but plenty of available cafe. No secure parking
