I would give this hotel 10 Stars if I could. The entire facility was super clean and well managed. The team of hosts are phenomenal. From the initial call with Paulo, to the check in service and personal escort to our room, the shuttle service in/around town and to and from the airport , the concierge service, the breakfast/dinner staff,...

We arrived and had been upgraded to a superior room with a sea view, which was a few miles away but good to see from the top floor room. The next morning, no sea view - mist obscured it, the following morning worse with fog! The location really needs a car as you are in a quiet area with not...

We arrived in the evening and got welcomed warmly. We got our rooms which were both great and modern. A nice rain shower and good bed. The view was also great. You could see the sea and the nearby city. On a clear day you almost can see Porto. On a clear night the view is also great! Breakfast is...

This was my first experience of Portugal and I loved it. We came here with 2 friends who were staying in the centre of Porto in an Airbnb. I decided I wanted something more luxury and after lots of research booked this hotel. We had a horrible experience at the airport with a hire car. We booked with Enterprise as...

We had a great stay here in June. Good location for exploring the area, with the additional calmness needed for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of pretty much anywhere. Not far from Porto airport, with a reliable hotel shuttle taxi (you have to book this with the hotel directly, before you leave) Pretty secluded spot at...

We stayed end of June, the hotel is spacious, with large lounges to relax in and admirer the view from the balcony. We hired a car which was very reasonable, however there is a shuttle transport provided by hotel. The restaurant was lovely, and all staff very nice. Parking was great. Was literally like staying in a spa, amazing time...

We wanted a special hotel for a birthday treat and the Sao Felix was certainly that. This beautiful hotel is situated on a hillside with spectacular views down to the Atlantic. The rooms are large and comfortable and the public areas stylish and restful. The food was good and reasonably priced and the staff charming and very helpful. We will...

We visited this hotel the 2nd week of August. We arrived on Monday 11th of July, a few days before Bastille Day in France. We already noticed in other southern countries that it is still low season then. We noticed this in the hotel too. Little guests, which, at first sight is not a problem. Except, the menu in the...
