“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Booked last minute and got the "couples retreat' special of 116euro for 2 nights B&B for 2people. Bargain.

The photos on their website & on other websites do not do any justice to the hotel - and although the furnishings in the rooms are old - everything is clean and tidy.

Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much effort for them.

Breakfast was sufficient - nothing fancy, but we didn't need much.

Friends of ours staying in the hotel also enjoyed the experience and stayed longer (even enjoying the swimming pool & drinks there)

We would definitely stay there again.

Big rooms, nice views, good facilities. Typical continental breakfast for a 4 star hotel. Free WiFi both in the public areas and the bedrooms.
The mattresses were a bit too soft for me.
Didn't have a chance to try the restaurant, but if it's as good as the others "Taberna do Quinzena" (http://quinzena.com/) it's worth the visit on it's own.
All in all, a pleasant experience.

This is a large hotel and as a result you get treated as a typical guest. It lacks the friendliness of the smaller hotels but is very clean Wifi in room. Great views and amazing pool outdoor (I did not visit the indoor pool nor the gym. The staff are friendly and welcoming.

Booked last minute online and got a favourable rate on a double room including breakfast.

We had an excellent view of the Tejo and the Santerem area from the rooms large windows.

We only used the outdoor pool area which was nice.
The staff was courteous and helpful. The breakfast was varied and tasty.

The hotel is a bit dated, but it is the only decent hotel in Santarem. Because the hotel is located on a hill top, the views from the rooms are amazing. You can see 30kms away! The pool is nice and the drinks etc are quite cheap. The only thing was the breakfast; absolutely shocking! Dirty tables, instant coffee, canned fruits, no waiters, and a very limited choice. I would recommend this hotel during a road trip through Portugal.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the pool side! the views are stunning.

The hotel has a spectacular location with excellent views across the surrounding countryside. When we visited Santarém it was 40º in the shade and we found we were a little too far from the historic centre of the town for a comfortable walk. As other reviewers have noted, the hotel is very clean and comfortable but the décor is a bit tired and could do with freshening up. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and were very co-operative when we asked to change rooms because of a music festival taking place outside town (30 years ago that would have been OK, maybe, but now we enjoy our peace and quiet!). They were also very quick to find and return some lost property we left behind. Breakfast was excellent, with a good range of hot and cold dishes, cereals, fruit, prepared meats, etc., although my wife found the coffee a let-down (very strange for Portugal). There is a good sports centre/gym with an indoor pool so you can take a dip without baking under the sun. We would certainly go back to see more of Santarém but a fresh coat of paint would give the hotel a lighter feel..

Room Tip: Rooms facing south have a great view across the Tagus valley.

Old, kind of 70's hotel. Used for conferences, the design is relevant to that. Friendly and helpful staff, quite good breakfasts, bad dinners, clean rooms. Surprisingly interesting view from the windows. Wi-Fi works only in the lobby.
Good place for one night stay on your way from Porto to the south - comfortable enough and with very reasonable price.
