    Wonderful staff!

    The staff was fantastic. They were so friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The decor was a little quirky and parts of the hotel seemed a little worn. We had two dinners which were good but not fantastic. We really enjoyed the afternoon on the patio with drinks and sandwiches. We hiked both days out of Ponte de Lima and loved our hikes.

    Stayed 3 nights in May 2019

    Lovely, but Not Quite Worth the $

    Carmo's is absolutely charming, but I'm not sure it's quite the 5 star experience it aims to be given the cost. The setting is beautiful and generally the hotel is as well, but we did find some of the facilities a bit run down. In particular, the pool needed a bit of sprucing up. Service left a bit to be desired. While relaxing by the pool it was rare that staff would check in which meant frequent trips to the front desk to request food and drink service. We elected to do a wine tasting on site instead of visiting a local vineyard which left quite a bit to be desired. In total we paid about 90 euros for 2 people to taste 3 wines, one of which we had ordered a bottle of at dinner the night before. When we mentioned this, we were not offered a replacement wine. We found this experience very disappointing and awful value. There was also miscommuincation over the lobby bar cart. A welcome letter said guests were welcome to fix drinks from the cart, and before doing so I asked at the front desk to confirm drinks were complimentary. We were told they were, but then charged for the 1 drink we each had. At check out the staff made no accommodations for the confusion even though we had purchased many services in our 2 day stay. Lunch and dinner are not spectacular. We had some alright dishes and some that were just not good . I would not recommend taking these meals at Carmo's. The included breakfast however is great.

    Pros: Beautiful, remote, quiet setting. Great design aesthetic.

    Cons: Service and value of add on's

    Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2017

    5/5 Excellent

    We had a lovely stay. Hotel is extremely welcoming & friendly. All the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home, nothing is too much trouble for them.we would certainly go back for another visit. The food was amazing, we had half board & really enjoyed the experience. Ponte di Lima is a beautiful town, the whole area is stunning.

    4/5 Good

    relaxing and serene

    Stylish hotel with a character, the design and landscape well thought through. we really enjoyed the outside swimming pool, spa treatment was good too, however the dinner was disappointing - much better quality food in the nearby town Ponte de Lima. Communication could be improved, since almost no one at the hotel speaks English, and even though my boyfriend is Portuguese there still was some mis-understaning about the spa treatment and the food at the pool.

    5/5 Excellent
