    Very good

    Staff very friendly.Rooms very spacious and the viuws there amacing , at one side the ocean ,at the other the Douro River.There is good outside parking which and the weekends is for free.Also there is 3 coffe bars very close to the hotel that you can have breakfast for two for six euros.

    No Kettle in the room or tea or coffe.There was a bootle of water in the room but cost 5 euros !!!! The water in the shower would go very cold or very hot all of a sudden with out you touching anything.

    The view from my room on the 18th floor The tea & coffee making facilities in the room The bathroom The large, comfortable bed The quiet

    The gym was so small, it was almost pointless The food on room service The breakfast was ok, but not worth the 13.50 extra

    Exclusive

    Friendliness of all staff ,and the cleanliness of the WHOLE place.Food was very much acceptable and there was plenty of choice.Transport, bus and metro was great and so near to the entrance for someone who cannot walk far like myself.

    THe only thing I did not like was the inability to pay my account with a credit card.I made arrangements with my bank that I would be in POrto but after three attempts I gave up.Good job I had cash available.

    Value for money was the best thing. I was able to park in a private area (not garage though) for free. Also, the surface metro is conveniently located just outside, giving you a great mobility option if you want to pause in using the car.

    The room had very tired furniture and carpets, and there were humidity marks on some parts of the walls. Soundproofing from the city noise outside leaves a lot to be desired. The breakfast isn't the quality level expected from a 4-star hotel: For example, no fruit available.

    Very good

    Habitacion y baño muy comodos y grandes, todo muy limpio.

    El parking era gratuito en junio y al llegar preguntamos y nos dijeron que costaba 12 euros. Solo al decir nosotros que era gratuito entonces dijeron que si.De no haberlo dicho lo habrian cobrado y creo que es su obligacion decir la verdad desde el principio. Al llegar confirme el precio de la reserva y estaba bien, pero a los 10 min llamaron a la habitacion para decir que el precio era mas caro. Tuvimos que bajar a recepcion y enseñarles el email de confirmacion de booking para no tener problemas. Lo que no comprendo es si ellos me dijeron desde el primer momento que el precio era el que yo tenia, porque luego hicieron todo ese lio. En fin la cosa se resolvio sin mas problemas pero no es agradable empezar las vacaciones asi.

    A pesar de estar en obras, la estancia ha sido muy tranquila, la habitacion grandiosa y las vistas desde la misma explendidas.

    Los precios del minibar y desayuno muy altos.

    Buen desayuno, el spa y los tratamientos que ofrecen. La junior suite merece la pena.

    El control del parking. No te ofrecen la tarjeta de acceso sino insistes.

    Me han encantado las vistas desde la habitación 2102, la cena en el restaurante también ha estado muy bien, los creps exquisitos.

    A penas hay amenities en los baños, un simple bote de gel y champu, en la mayoría de los hoteles de esta categoría ponen a disposición pequello cepillo de dientes y pasta, cuchilla de afeitar y otros.

    Very good

    Do atendimento dos funcionários e da localização para o efeito: festival marés vivas.

    Preço talvez um pouco elevado. Spa com uma relação qualidade/preço inusitada. As suites juniors não são suites. São quartos mais amplos!

    Superb

    La habitación era espaciosa, con la decoracion en la linea de los hoteles Sol melia, bastante acogedora e insonorizada.La zona de Vila nova de Gaia donde esta ubicado el hotel es bastante tranquila y apenas se oye ruido. Esta bien comunicado con el metro, hay una estacion a 10 minutos andando (S.Joao de Deus) y tarda unos 5 minutos en llegar al centro de Oporto.(S.Bento).
