“very basic for fitted young people”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

overall it is a nice apparthotel, very basic, that suits young and fitted families , but not elder people.
the fact that the bedroom is upstairs, to which you have to climb on a relative steep wood stairs, when all facilities ,including bathroom and toilet, was for us very inconvenient, dragging every day things up and down, was far from being convenient.
another important issue is hot water supply, where two people in a row could not have sufficient hot water because of limited electric boiler size and very low thermostat setting. during all our stay of 5 nights we were not able to fix it.
finally we left the hotel after 5 nights although we paid for 7 nights.
younger people may enjoy it, if they do not wash too often, but for elder people like us it does not fit.

We spent a week here but found it disappointing. The apartment was one of around twenty self catering apartments and was rather tired and neglected looking. The staff were friendly and the towels were changed every two days but the accommodation left a lot to be desired. The furniture was old and uncomfortable, there were no chairs except the wicker ones outside, even the TV set was an old square set but since there were no English channels except BBC World News that didn't really matter. There was a small swimming pool but nothing else.
Having read the reviews before we left I was expecting a much better place. I do not generally write negative reviews but can find little to say of a positive nature about this place.
Sleep quality was poor because of the numerous barking dogs in the flats which overlook the resort all around and the fog horn which sounded every 15 seconds, day and night.
It is true that Esposende is well located for visiting other towns in Northern Portugal.

Room Tip: All of the apartments are the same so it doesn't really matter which you have. All overlook the...

We were made most welcome from the first arrival until our departure. All the staff were very friendly, and we got loads of advice on where to visit nearby, the local restuarants and supermarkets. We got a welcome glass of Port, and also a voucher for a glass of wine when we visited Guimaraes. The pool was a good size although a little cool, as the weather hadnt been brilliant before our arrival. The apartment was well equipped for 4 persons, and it was very comfortable. It also had a rear sun balcony which caught the evening sun, so we could get a sunny position from dawn until dusk. Esposende is a good base for both touring the north of Portugal, and also for walking, as there are a number of waymarked walks nearby - we did one of 9.5km and one of 14km, and they were very pleasant. Wifi in reception was also useful for our son who joined us for 2 days of our week there.

We stayed here for a week at the end of April & couldn't have been made more welcome.We were greeted with a glass of port on arrival & the staff were very helpful with ideas & directions of places to visit. The accomodation is in self catering bungalows with lounge, kitchen & bathroom downstairs & bedroom upstairs, furnished with everything you need. We loved the area & would certainly recommend this accomodation for a touring holiday. Thank you to everyone for helping to make our stay very enjoyable

Espoende is well situated to explore Northern Portugal and Clube Pinhal da Foz is the perfect place to do it from. The staff, notably Jose the director, is very knowledgable about the area and helped us to plot a new adventure every day of our visit. We went to Porto, Guimaraes, Viana de Costelo, Porto de Lima, Barcelos and Braga in a week. We also received restaurant advice for each trip. The facilities are nice, though we were there in late October so couldn't avail ourselves of the pool and other leisure activities. The room was nice, though a bit tight for four adults, especially since ther is one bathroom. The one bedroom and pull-out sof bed were sufficient for sleeping. Th kitchen is fairly big and well appointed. The unit and grounds are quite clean and the housekeeping staff is as friendly as can be. Clube Pinhal da Foz is well worth visiting.

Hotel situated in a quiet residencial area, a short walk top the town centre.

Ecellent value for money stay.
