The Solverde is a relaxing hotel that is situated on the coast near Espinho.
Great pool and sunbathing areas both around the pool and in the extensive green areas. Lots of sunbeds/loungers available so there is never a rush to try and claim one first thing!
The indoor pool has both sauna and steam room, ice room and showers just off of it. Unfortunately these areas are separated into male and female which means couples tend to be isolated from each other.
Rooms are spacious and clean.
Breakfast is plentiful, the fruit is incredibly fresh and the staff work incredibly hard to top up these and replace quickly and efficiently.
Staff are helpful.
"Gorgeous view, wonderful people and amazing food!"
My husband and I stayed there for our 2nd anniversary after a few days on the Porto side as we were touring a few port lodges. I can't say better things about this hotel - the people (especially Tiago) were warm and friendly, and they event treated us to complimentary drinks at the bar since our room wasn't ready upon arrival.
From the tour of the onsite wine collection (largest collection of Portugese wine in the world!), to the infinity pool, to the Michelin-starred restaurant ("The Restaurant") the experience was sublime. I can't wait to get back, and given this was my second time in Porto and Vaia Nova de Gaia, it helped solidify that this is my most favorite city in the world!

The staff at the hotel are all brilliantly helpful and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet holiday. The beach is right on the doorstep and couldn't be better. Special mention to Tanya on reception for taking the time to tell us what to do with our time in Porto and for being such a great host!
Conveniently located close to a train stop. The place is very neatly organized and clean. It's basic but comfortable. If you spend a lot of time outside touring or need a place to rest then this is the best place for you. If you like to walk, Clip Hotel is a good place to start onward to cross the Ponte Luis Bridge or towards the Port Wine Cellars.
Hotel Davilina was undergoing repair work so we were moved to the adjoining CLIP Hotel. We were there on a weekend so there was free street parking nearby. The above ground Metro train ran down the middle of the street. The station was a two minute walk away and a short ride across the river into Porto. An El Corte Ingles dept store was also nearby along with quite a few restaurants along the street. The room was excellent although maybe a bit small for some. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Facing Porto across the Douro River, Vila Nova de Gaia is the port wine capital of the world. Over 50 companies are based here, dedicated to ageing and blending the wine that is Porto’s namesake. Port lodges, with their characteristic red roofs, dominate the city centre. Visitors can take guided tours to see how port is made and sample different varieties.
