“Great location”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Been there with the family for a weekend night. The hotel is superbly located with beautiful views although it lacks some proper road indications. Maybe this helps for peaceful surroundings... We stayed in one of the smaller wooden houses and consider it great for a family or group of friends vacation.

Pros:
Staff, especially the front desk - can't stress this enough!
Breathtaking views
Peaceful and quiet
Restaurant is very good and not that expensive (considering you are in a hotel - approx. 20€ per person)

Cons:
Some details in need of maintenance
Swimming pool and adjacent facilities are too small when hotel is crowded
Breakfast isn't good enough for a 4 star hotel - lousy juices, little variety of food, waiters couldn't cope with a crowded room

All in all, I recommend it but clearly it can go from a superb hotel to a regular hotel very easily.

The hotel is placed at the peak of a mountain. The view is awesome.
It has individual rooms, and 2 types of houses. The houses seem to be a good option for families.
The rooms are spacious and really confortable. You get a great view of the mountains and the river.
In the bathroom there was a wide window, where you could be taking bath while enjoying the view.
The indoor pool is a little small, and there is only one jacuzzi. Sauna and turkish bath were ok.
The outdoor pool seems very nice.

For us it turned out to be a great deal for the money. It deserves the 4 stars and I totally recommend it.

Aqua means water..... If you add this word to Hotel it can only take you to a place where you will find an Hotel with SPA. And what an Hotel...... The Aqua Hotel is located on the top of a mountain with breathtaking views available from each room. You don't need to worry about missing on the view because it is granted. The main point of interest though is the Service. You will find flawless service from the moment you step in. I experienced the SPA, the Massage Treatment, the restaurant, the bar and just found TOP people handling the services. If you stop to think and realise you are up north near Vila Real, you won't believe that it's possible to get all this quality service for such a good deal.
Well done to the All Team!!!

we booked the hotel mainly because of the kids entertainment mentioned on the homepage. But there was no such program. Only once a day for one hour they organize something if you insistantly ask for.
the location and the modern style of the hotel are great.
The food is poor. You better find great typical restaurants in mondim.
the spa area is quite small but ok.
The service was almost medium.
They seem not really interested in arranging or offering activities for kids or adults.
Its a pitty because with a little effort they could offer a great package.

The hotel is a splendid choice for anyone who:
1. has a car
2. loves spa's and mountains
3. plans to visit the North part of Portugal

For the promotion price below 50Euro it is THE BEST deal so far during all my year's of travel. The rooms have a lot of space, are very clean, modern, have great views over the mountains. You have all the 4 star equipment onboard, fridge, lcd, bathrobes etc.

The breakfast are very good, I have seen better, but it's a SPA ;) Did not check the dinners. The bar is ok, very good snacks are available for reasonable priced. So are the wines. You are not getting ripped of.

Personell is very helpful, wifi is in place. If not working due to some reason, you always can get a LAN line etc. parkong is free, so is teh pool, jacuzzi, sauna's

What is amazing in the hotel is it's location (top of a mountain with an amazing view over river bed) and the very modern, well planned architecture.

What is also superb for families:
1. playground for kids
2. all chidlren up to 8 are free on extra bedding, this makes a 2+2 travel seem cheap :)

If I were to warn about anything: 1. the pool are small, so do not plan to do olympic swimming here, plus the restaurant is not open all the time. You have to make reservation.

This hotel is a great choice if you want to spend a couple of days resting in the middle of nature, hearing the sound of the river waters the birds singing.

The hotel has a modern design and fits very well within its surroundings. Rooms are very clean and confortable with a lovely large balcony from where you can relax and enjoy an amazing view over the river and the Senhora da Graça hill.

I was there in December so can't say much about the exterior pool other than it looks nice. The interior pool is extremely small, particularly if more than 3/4 people decide to use it at the same time. On the other hand, the gym is very well equiped and, like the rest of the hotel facilities, offers you a wonderful scenery.

The food at the hotel restaurant is nice but nothing extraordinary and the service is a bit slow.
The bar service is very efficient and the free wi-fi is a plus!

I have to say that the best thing about the Àgua Hotel, next to the views, is the staff. All the employees of the hotel are extremely nice, professional and thoughtful and this is one of the reasons why we are sure to go back to the hotel one of these days.
