Nice hotel, but definately not a 4 star. Room very basic, but comfortable. Only 2 sockets in the room, which was nowhere near enough, when trying to charge phones, batteries and laptops. Room was well soundproofed, didn't hear much, not even the planes flying over the hotel. Nice, comfy bed, but room and bathroom needs to be updated.

Not for a week

Nice setting but you need to get taxis every time you go out. A very steep walk to nearest village. Nowhere to walk to. However, staff are very good, rooms are clean and comfortable Perfect for a few nights stopover but not for a week. Evening buffet very good at 17 euros. Breakfast not so good for 9 euros - but nowhere else to go.

Points positifs : L’accueil à l’arrivée, le petit déjeuner excepté le chocolat chaud, la vue sur la mer et le jardin Points négatifs : chambre vieillotte, baignoire usée et trop haute, serviettes et linge de lit en fin de vie, présence de chiens dans l’hôtel, nombre de places dans le parking

Erittäin hyvätasoinen hotelli. Ystävällinen palvelu. Hyvä ruoka ravintolassa ja ruhtinaalliset aamiaiset. Huone oli hiljainen ja hyvin toimiva ilmastointi. Hotelli kävelymatkan päässä centro historicosta.

Kiva perhehotelli, hyvä uima-allas. Olisimme kaivanneet opastusta Portoon kulkemiseen esim. Ohjetaululle hotellin aulassa. Toki asia kysymällä selvisi: taksilla Portoon helpoiten.
