We spent a lovely five days at this splendid hotel. The main hotel building is outstanding - elegant, beautiful and a blast of the past. The service was very good/excellent with all the staff friendly and helpful. The bedrooms in a separate building are well appointed. We loved our third floor river room.The pools are very clean and welcoming. We had asked for a quiet room.... only to find that the first night was disturbed by an all night party - put on by the hotel to celebrate its second birthday. Not a good start from our point of view as we were in need of rest and relaxation. But the following nights were quiet. As the hotel is on the outskirts of Porto clients would be advised to hire a car or be prepared for taxi transfers. A memorable stay.
