Very nice and relaxing place, facing the ocean. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. You can walk, run or ride a bicycle hours along the promenade. The town close by has plenty of restaurants an is nice to see. The hotel has a first class gym, nicely equipped, much better than an average hotel gym. Bicycle are available for free for the guests. Highly recommended.

Stayed: September 2018

The hotel is very nice. Modern with all the basic amenities expected. They have a gym and a swimming pool but did not have the time to go there. The rooms are very spacious and confortable. My room was clean. The A/C works perfectly even if a little noisy. But the best part of the room was the outdoor patio with amazing view on the ocean. Waking up to that view was incredible. Personnel was nice. The surroundings of the hotel are not that great as your are in an industrial area bit you can walk a little and find a nice beach. I would definitely recommand that hotel

Stayed for 2 nights as had stayed here previously. It just doesn't disappoint, everything is as it should be. Clean spacious efficient staff courteous and polite. Breakfasts good choice and plentiful. Wonderful sea view and only 10 min walk from town. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed two nights and could've easily stayed another two. It's not in the center of Viana, however there are buses and you can also drive and park the car somewhere and walk around. The hotel is wonderful, our room, 203, had a sea view and balcony with sun loungers. You could also see into the Spa so we went down when it was quiet. The spa itself is ok, size is good and the fact they have a seperate area for the pool is good too. The only issue for me is that when the bubbles stopped someone had to get out to press the button to start them up again. We didn't know this until the second day when a lifeguard appeared and someone mentioned that the spa wasn't working, so you're in the water, nice and warm, relaxing and then suddenly things stop and there are no instructions on what to do next, so you spend some feeling feelings the walls to see if you find a switch. The spa has seas views, and a few sunloungers, in summer they open up an ajoinging sun area so that peope can subathe. It's relaxing just staying in the water and watching the waves and people walking their dogs, or doing exercise etc. They also have a full size swimming pool, however they sometimes have classes, so they save a lane for hotel clients.
As for the restaurant, we were able to have dinner on Saturday night, which was lovely, so nice that we went back for Sunday lunch, however as the restaurant closes Sunday night and Monday all day, we got a buffet lunch for 25€ which we did not enjoy. I was able to have the child menu for 10€ as I only wanted the chicken, chips and salad they had on the children's menu. Although the restaurant closes on Sunday and Monday, you do still have a bar service where you can get sandwiches, and you still get your breakfast on Monday morning, which was very nice.
There's a restaurant at the end of the industrial park where you can eat. Service wasn't excellent but food ok and it wasn't packed.
I would totally recomend this hotel, be it for visiting Viana do Castelo or the surrounding areas, or even just a couple of days away at a spa.
Staff were really friendly.

Room Tip: Sea views.

In front of a really beautiful sea, with very beautiful and comfortable rooms, it's perfect to escape from daily life!
Both of the times I've been in the rooms with sea view, with a really nice balcony in front of the ocean.

Room Tip: sea view on the first floor (larger balcony)
