Guest reviews

    7.8

    View is wonderful. Suitable place for long walks along seaside or riding with bike or rollers. If weather allows - beach is very good. Porto Vine cellars in Gaia are reachable by walk (approx <1 hour) or by bus.

    Construction site nearby hotel.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    This hotel was very clean and comfortable with large enough rooms and nice furniture, the bell boy was very friendly and helpdful - a real asset to this hotel! Staff were generally friendly too.

    Can be expensive to get taxis in/out of Vila Nova de Gaia/Porto once/twice a day as there isn't anything in the immediate area. The pool is dated and there's no where to sit and sunbathe really except a small area with some grass but its not great. Mind you the beach is outside the door and if you can put up with the gale force winds then that would be a better option.

  • Single
    8.8

    Excellent hotel, very helpful staff. Lovely, quiet location right by beach in Gaia/Lavadores, and reliable and frequent bus service into the centre of Porto. The buffet breakfast was good, and there was a minibar in the room,although sadly no tea/coffee-making facilities. It had a pleasant garden area by the pool which thankfully was sheltered from the (almost constant!) strong wind,

    No tea/coffee-making facilities in room.

  • Group of friends

    Casa Branca was clean and comfortable. It's a block from a pretty decent beach, new area though so not much was there. Easy access to the bus system to go in to Porto. The sweet bellboy at the door was a lot of help in finding where to go and things to do. He was very helpful. The breakfast was good as well.

    Upon booking I was under the impression that there was a nice spa and pool area at the hotel. The pool and hot tub were very old and run down. I thought it to be ridiculous that you have to wear a swim cap in order to enjoy the pool. The spa area was also not impressive. I would not consider this a 4 star hotel. Also when checking in, our plane arrived early and we knew we couldn't check in until 1500, but the hotel refused to hold our luggage so we had to drag it around with us for almost 5 hours.

  • Single
    10.0

    I loved the personnel, they were just so kind and willing to help in any situation. I appreciate they all spoke decent English. I love the balcony view on ocean and tasty breakfast. The location is perfect for those who want to stay a bit out of the buzz..

  • Older travelers

    Hotel need a refurbishing. Staff is just acceptable, breakfast was cheap. It don't deserve 4 stars, maybe a 2+. We have a wedding in restaurant with lot of scandals downstairs.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Good value for money and the hotel has a very good restaurant!

  • Couple
    9.2

    Hotel is excellent, rooms are perfect. Location and the view to the sea were the best! Walk along the ocean and even to Porto can be done by foot. There is also a bus station in front of the hotel if you don’t want to walk. Very nice hotel and spa.

    Don’t expect big swimming pool but it is ok size and you can have a nice swim there.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were very friendly, breakfast very good and the quality of surroundings was excellent.

  • Older travelers

    Leisure facilities, and location of hotel

  • Couple
    5.8

    the location was great, near the beach and to the bus

    the swimming pool and the hotel look old and not taken care of. Only 4 rooms with double beds

  • Couple
    8.2

    The bed was very comfortable, room was big enough and very spacious. The hotel itself is quiet. The cleaning ladies did a brilliant job.

    The shover was placed too low. Breakfast was ok but more varieties should be available.

  • Single
    7.8

    Size of the room, view from the room, restaurant (food and staff), friendly staff

    No ambiance during the stay, 10 eur taxi drive to Porto center, tennis court out of shape (10 eur an hour -check before you book), spa below expectations

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Location to beach and frequency of good bus service into centre of Porto.

    The screened balcony area was quite basic and sterile looking accommodated with plastic table and chairs - not at all inviting to sit at.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Very close to the ocean, Really good breakfasts, great variety of food and drinks Friendly staff

    The hotel is rather old as well as the furniture. It requires a good repair To reach Porto you'll need taxi (about 10 euros) or a bus (1.70 euros) No toothpaste or shampoo, it's better to take all this with you
