The hotel was not quite open so hard to judge. It has been a super hotel in a quiet location but is now a little tired. There are swimming pools and lovely mature gardens, close to the beach. Many nearby restaurants so plenty of choice. Comfortable clean rooms, helpful staff.

We booked 2 nights but decided to stay only 1. When we 1st arrived, the lady at the reception gave us the key and told us to use the elevator. We had to look for the room. Not the kind of treatment we usually get at a 4 stars hotel. The room was horrible. Ancient, the shower was not working...

The old hotel looks like from 70`s with nice restaurant. Suitable rooms with standard equipment, bathroom with tube. Large garden around the hotel building, spacious parking. Old time pool, but good maintained, everything else close to pool look like retro style. Wifi is poor, connection is possible only in the several common areas, room are without internet. Breakfast was good,...

Over the years we have returned to this hotel on a few occasions, but its management has changed course, driving many guests away. We changed to a different hotel after a few days. First our reasons to come back. This is a 1960s architectural gem, more than a hint of the original Thunderbirds' Tracey Island, period features carefully preserved. Spaces...

If you are tired of the noise and bustle,of the cities, come here to restore your soul! Between the sea and the river, this delightful spot is a true find. By no means luxurious, the rooms are large, and we had a balcony with a view over the river. There was a small kitchenette with microwave, tea kettle, sink, but...

Located in front of Cávado river and a vast line of sandy beaches, Hotel Parque do Rio in Ofir is in the middle of the Natural Parque of Ofir. The original architecture is from the 60's but it was refurbished on 2011 with great design and details. The restaurant is to cry for more, with an outstanding view and gourmet...

i have stayed in this hotel with my wife the second week of september. The hotel is a charming one, from the 70º, beautifuly design, owned by an arquitect, that maintain the place with a certain "panache".

Cannot fault the staff, nothing was too much trouble for them, whatever it was. Rooms are spacious, with frequent linen changes. Perhaps they can update the place a bit, or re-arrange the facilities. Snack-bar food okay but the dinner suffered from a lack of fresh ingredients. Good breakfast although it only starts at 8am. Internet available but at E3.00 p/halfhour...

We arrived, we saw, we left! Dull, dark, stale smell, and a generally unloved appearance. No restaurant facility availability for evening Receptionist very pleasant. Definitely not for an out of season visit!
