I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent, outside the city center was very relaxing. The buildings are beautiful, as are the grounds. The pool is quite nice. Beds were comfortable, rooms were very clean and staff was super professional.

A feeling of complete luxury from the beginning to the end of our stay. The setting was lovely (on the banks of the River). Room was large and had everything you could need and staff were amazingly helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Slightly long walk into town (about 40 mins) but doable and the hotel do run a...

Charming former castle located on the Douro River turned into a luxury hotel with all amenities one could desire. Excellent concierge and other service. International clientele not overwhelmed by Americans. We did not try their restaurant. Nice breakfast was included with the room. Suspect the best hotel in Porto.

Away from the main part of the city.....but ever so nicely. This intimate hotel has it all. Palace, gardens,pool, and rooms with a view. And a staff that matches the hotel perfectly....attentive and welcoming.

We went for my birthday and the hotel found out about it and made sure we had a lovely time, including advising restaurants where the concierge made a reservation for us and offering me a chocolate fondant minicake with candle on the day.

If you want to relax, be pampered, enjoy life, you need to stay here! The staff is friendly and oh, so, accommodating! The rooms are wonderful and very comfortable. We had a corner room on the 2nd floor with a view of the river, gardens, spa and the veranda of the "palace", wonderful. Great breakfast and the restaurant was great...

This is the luxury treat you were looking for - fab location about €7 taxi ride to the old town. The indoor public areas are opulent and the outdoor pool/bar area is relaxing with attentive bar staff and a great mix of shaded and full sun seating right at the river shore.
