Pros: We spend just a day and a night in Sobroso, and really enjoyed it.
I only can confirm what others already stated:
this is a place to relax, to eat local dishes with high quality, to drink great wine ... and to experience a warm welcome with perfect service from all the people there.
Cons: My room has been quite small, bed on upper level. If it's hot outside, even the A/C doesn't cool down enough if you are used to sleep in colder environment.
Different in other rooms, no problem there.
It completely depends which room you get.
