    The Sea

    It was 2 star and not 4 star as advertised

  • Older travelers

    Quiet location

    Breakfast not good coffee awful, hot food was cold and no toaster. Wifi not working in bedroom.

    The hotel is close to the beach and seaside boardwalk. The view is gorgeous.

    It's relatively nearby the city of Porto, but if you don't have rental car you have to wait for the local bus, which runs only once per hour (with no timetables listed). Also, there aren't many choices for dinner nearby other than the hotel restaurant, which is not open every evening.

    It is not a resort as advertised.There is no golf club and very difficult to get to.

    The view of the sea from the bedroom balcony and the breakfast room was wonderful. Our hotel room was large, attractive and had very comfortable beds.

    For a four star hotel the breakfast was no more than adequate. The buffet was kept well stocked but lacked imagination. The worst feature of the buffet was the lack of heat under what should have been hot food.

    The sopt is really nice and meals service is really good. The bell boy was very educate and help full and so the lady who whas working on Friday and Monday at the recepetion during the day

    Overall staff trainning is very poor, I had the feeling that as the wedding I was going to it was in there they knew we had no option despite the hotel got crowded of international guests who were going to the same wedding party in the hotel that I did. We rented some scooters on Saturday morning and they told us will be ready at 09h30 and they were not until 11h00. The locking door system of my room didn't work properly from Friday til Sunday afternoon and the reception people never wanted to come and check as they thought I was not capable to use a magnetic card until I shouted like hell and they came with me and they realized that the system was not working properly due to low battery..

    The view from our room and the service from the staff. Really nice.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Extremely kind and helpful English speaking staff. Very near to the sea. Tastefully furnished, comfortable rooms, with little terrace, view to the sea.

  • Family with children

    Cleaning was okay.

    The beach side was always soo windy, it was imposible to swim. The hotel is too expensive and nothing special.. It's better to stay in a better hotel and go to beach(the beach in matosinhos, which is better I think) by public transportation. And in the hotel the internet wasnt working for the whole week!

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The proximity of the sea, the quietness, the excellent restaurant, the swimming pool.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is great for relaxing, right next to the beach and close to bars, restaurants and caffés. The room was big and had a balcony with view to the beach where we had our breakfast. The Health Club is small but quite good (we had a wonderful back massage) and not expensive at all.

    The indoor swimming pool building was under our window, so there was always a slight background noise coming from the ventilation system. But it wasn't disturbing during the night.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Although they advertised free tapas at the bar from 7 pm till 10 pm, the bar attendant insisted it was upto 9 pm and only provided it when we asked for it.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    It was close to the sea front, the staff friendly. Easy access to the local bus. Free 15 minutes use of Internet per day

    Stale food at breakfast, no kettle in the bedroom, extra charge for use of the pool. Expensive "happy hour"

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Proximity to Port houses in Gaia and to beaches and waterfront. Free parking in front of the hotel.

    Did not provide much extra information without asking on Porto and Gaia. Access to the pool was extra. No info on golf -- where is the course? Tennis court not functional.
