Lovely little rooms in a seaside theme with balconies over the water offering great views of flamingoes and diving birds. Cosy blankets on the bed great for sitting out on cooler evenings. The building has some fab 60's furniture and a brilliant open staircase, also a lovely outdoor pool, think Twiggy sipping a shampers at sunset. I loved this hotel...

This is a great place to stay when you want to get away from everything but you do need a car as it is quite a way to nearest village. We had a lovely room with a view over the lagoon. Recommend taking a pair of binoculars to watch the birds from the balcony - we didn't have any but...

Aveiro is a beautiful, small city in the centre of Portugal. People usually only visit Coimbra and Fátima but there are other places worth visiting. Aveiro has lots of beaches very near if that's your cup of tea. The restaurants that surround it are famous for their fresh fish or seafood. Aveiro has a river that flows along the city....

Reviewed 18 March 2017

This is a small hotel built directly on the water of the Ria, a bit like e.g. the Inn Above Tide in Sausalito, CA. The late 50's - 60's style of the hotel is being kept intact with lots of attention to detail: if you are prepared to make the odd concession in this respect the reward is very real....

40 years ago, I went here by car and DID NOT notice how far way from both Porto and Aveiro this hotel actually is. This time my husband and I took a taxi from Aveiro Station and certainly noticed the distance how far it is from civilisation, by the amount on the taxi-meter. In fact, you had the impression this...

What a tranquil setting for a hotel. A friend of mine booked this hotel for me whist I was there on business as his parents live just down the road.

We have stayed in many pousadas in Portugal and normally love them! The standard has always been high. We booked this pousada on the internet and were very surprised when we arrived.

Honestly, almost everything was perfect with exception of the smell from the river. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the staff was kind and the hotel was quite well located for a relaxing time. Also, you could go to Aveiro in a short trip which made the experience even better. Only the smell was a bad thing!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada da Torreira, Murtosa, in is located within the isthmus that connects Murtosa to the San Jacinto beaches, in Ria de Aveiro, integrating a uniquely beautiful protected natural landscape in the Bico do Muranzel. This hotel in Aveiro, opened in the 60s, has the Ria de Aveiro passing right under its balconies. From here you can contemplate the traditional toil of the famous Moliceiros fishermen in the tranquillity of the day's end. The characteristics of the Ria, formed by a large number of lakes, make this area a pleasant place for outdoors sports, such as an unforgettable boat ride, a swim in the pool, horseback riding or simply enjoying the fantastic neighbouring beaches. The modern rooms are decorated in warm, bright tones and have TV, bath, shower, air conditioning and a balcony overlooking the gardens or the river, where you can admire the natural landscape of the region. The Buzios restaurant offers a superb view and has a delicious menu of traditional Portuguese refined cuisine. You can indulge yourself in an eel stew with peppers or if you prefer meat, bean stew with suckling pig is a good option. Regional desserts including "soft-eggs" are a great choice of dessert. The Pousada da Ria is near the town of Sao Jacinto, about 15 minutes by car and there is free parking on site. Promotions ... more   less
