Hotel staff wonderful and excellent staff but pool too cool for me. Great location and loved watching soccer at the Beach club. We had two delicious dinners at Casa Branca.

The view was amazing and the room was very nice and spacious. Loved having a balcony with big windows overlooking the beach. Breakfast was great and at a good time for both early and late risers. The only negative was that the hairdryer broke and nobody came to fix it like they said they would.

Yes and no
Far away from Porto but truly great service! Rooms impeccable but spa disgusting! Parking easy and attached restaurant expensive!!!!!! Amazing free breakfast. Take the 12 bus to the end and you're at the cool part of Porto (2€, direct; take it back and the hotel is the last stop.

Liked the location -not the hotel, unclean & tired
The hotel is very run down, paint and tiling is peeling off all around the pool. It is not a 4* hotel. Maybe 2.5* at best. The floor of the room was dirty, covered in the previous tenants debris. The bed cover was stained, as were the towels. I explained my problem to the hotel reception staff who gave me a shrugged shoulder response. So I stated it is difficult to feel clean drying off on a towel with stains or fell for rested in a bed with multiple stains on the cover. He then said he would get it remedied. When we returned after the day out, the stained bedcover was still there, the floor had been vacuumed, but the changed towels were still stained. It was disappointing. We chose the breakfast and it proved a good time to diet. The breakfast was sub standard. The breads, croissants and even Portuguese tarts were all dry and tasted like yesterday’s. I do not recommend taking the breakfast options. There are some great local restaurants to get a decent feed at. The location is great for a beach break. The bus to Porto takes about 40 mins and is only €2 each way. Loved being close to the beach, just wish we chose another hotel.
