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.

Beachfront hotel but bad wifi and small bar.
Staff was beyond excellent. No internet in a room on the first floor. Location was great for the beach. Long walk for anything else. No swim up bar as advertised. Very small bar in the lobby. Not what I thought, but still worth the stay.
