Great stay at Porto in summer
Short stay but great. Next to shopping mall with hospital too. Pool and breakfast perfect also due covid rules. Access to the hotel by car needs your full attention since the street is small and next to a curve in the highway. First time you will due a retour then you will get it. Close to the main highlight in Porto just 10 or 15 minutes by car. Fully recommended.

Friendly staff
Amazing. We enjoyed the bar and the restaurant, food was great, breakfast was big, had everything you can possibly have. After dinner we mentioned to our bartender that it was our anniversary and an hour later he brought a tray full of goodies for us along with the champagne and a note from the hotel wishing us happy anniversary. That was unexpected and very thoughtful. We had a seaview room with a pool view as well. Wish the pool was heated. The only negative about this hotel is the AC. It was very hot in a room, and there was no way to fix it, because it was controlled by the hotel and we couldnt open the windows because it waa raining. It was impossible to sleep because of that, it waa very hot in the room.
