I've stayed at the Yeatman on three different occasions and each time I was blown away by the gorgeous rooms, the incredible view of the Douro River, and the impressive service.
The Caudalie Spa and the staff at the spa are hands-down the best element of this hotel. During my last visit (January 2013) I was lucky enough to do a 3-day "cure" at the spa, and the entire experience was out of this world. I have since recommended both the spa and the hotel to any of my friends who want to visit Portugal.
I've also had amazing experiences at the restaurant. The food is absolutely divine, the wait staff very attentive, and regardless of how many courses I ordered, the "gifts" from the chef were the best part! Though the menu doesn't indicate it, the wait staff is more than willing to do wine pairings with any of the courses...and I loved experiencing local wines.
One note...if you're renting a car, always, always get the extra insurance! The roads near this hotel are insane and the risk of going without insurance is just not worth it.
Thank you to the Yeatman, which I always claim as the best hotel I've found anywhere in the world!
