5 star hotel but a 3 star in reality
Expensive for what it offers.. its supposedly a 5 star but in reality its not more than a 3 star.. very small rooms with the shower and bath in the middle of the room.. making the room very dump after taking a shower.. very small tv, the sink is the middle of the room to.. only the toilet is in a cramped space with a door.. very expensive food, the spa was not ON in middle of August.. and prepare your self of a 40mim drive in a road with curve after curve without protection rails and a 150m fall..

Beautiful setting, rooms and spa facilities
This hotel is absolutely beautiful and set in the most amazing valley and vineyard. The Chapel is gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and the pool is a good size. The facilities are great. Transfer to and from Rede Station included, but not from Régua. The restaurant is not very good at all - the vegetarian rice dish was very bland and the food poorly seasoned, but the wine was fantastic. It was also great value.

Entra muita luz pelas janelas do quarto de manhã. Choveu e entrou água para o quarto pela varanda. O pequeno almoço é bom e o lugar sossegado. Não me parece um hotel para 5 estrelas.
