If you are lucky and arrive on a sunny day, the hotel offers, as his names mentions, a fantastic view over the ocean. The hotel location is not in the center of Porto but on the nice suburb side with the beaches. The rooms are great not so big but correct. The furniture is a little bit aging but in...

Hotel is located over river Douro estuary into ocean. Roof view terrace (4-th floor) with restaurant and swimming pool. From this roof we had view on ocean, river with second bank and some bridges and almost half of town. Nearby (about 250 m) is well supllied and cheap chain shop Pingo Doce. I recommend.

We really enjoyed our 3 nights here. The room (302) was not huge but big enough for us, with a clean bathroom and walls that seemed to be at funny angles, as was the carpet! The bed was comfy and the aircon worked well. Free wifi in the hotel. Good cold buffet breakfast with hot scrambled egg, bacon (or sorts)...

This is a very good three stars hotel. I think they could actually easily upgrade it to four stars if they wanted. The rooms are spacious enough and clean. You can enjoy good complementary breakfast and wi-fi. The hotel has a swimming pool and a bar. It's very close to the beach and there are some restaurants in proximity so...

This is obviously an older building but has been refurbished so that the decorations and all of the accessories are modernized. It is located near the river and the Atlantic Ocean. There seems to be always a nice cool breeze. Limited restaurant facilities in the hotel but there are many around. Within walking distance of a nice Pier. There is...

Hotel Boa Vista: Great location with amazing views. Staff very friendly bar Susanna on front desk. Rooms spacious and hotel spotlessly clean. Breakfast is great other meals are what you expect of 3star. No complaints. Easy to access beach, old/new town and harbour. Wifi excellent. Only saw a cat on the premises twice. Masseuse is supposed to be excellent. Great...

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room we received was exactly what we ordered with a great view of the sea. The service at the hotel was up to a four star hotel! Its location allows either to go to the beach or to Porto. For the latter, the tram or the walk makes the...

Very basic hotel. The room was clean but small. It was annoying that the rooms are not individually climate controlled. So you have to bear whatever the hotel thinks you want, which in our case was not ideal. Breakfast was very ordinary and by our 3rd morning we were tired of it. In fact, the cut fruits were stale as...

I stayed a few days in Boa-Vista with a friend. The hotel is clean, nice. Easy to get lost in :) breakfast is nice, with a lot of options. The view from the top is amazing. Worth to have a coffee in the bar. Ocean is pretty close, like around 4 mins walk, with 2 lighthouses nearby. Veery cool. However...

Close to the park of the end of the river and to the sea too. It's a perfect position if you like also to have a walk/go eat in front of the sea. Served by buses (city line and touristic ones, 15 minutes to go to center town). The area it's well served, with many good restaurants. The hotel is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
