Restaurant and bar staff went an extra mile to make my 4-year old daughter's birthday very special. Compliments to the chef as the cake was so yummy! Tomas and Pedro (hope I got the names right) were amazing. They looked after us every evening. I could not imagine a better service. My daughters keep talking about you even now when...

Wonderful stay, beautiful hotel with superb quality and scoring high on every aspect. But the staff is what really crowns this Holiday Inn with its amazing service. Definitely a place to go back to on a future Gaia/Porto visit.

The room was large with plenty of room and nice amenities. Our only complaint was the room was very warm and we couldn't open a window or get the a/c to turn on to cool it off. Dinner at the bar was good with friendly staff and inexpensive prices for a hotel bar. The hotel was a little further away...

The only plus so far about this hotel, apart from the good location, is how big the room is, considering it comes with a living room and kitchenette... However the kitchenette doesn't have any cutlery or kitchenware that it's practically useless. On my first night, I called the reception to ask for an iron and an iron board, and after...

We stayed at this hotel in August, the location was great, we could either take a stroll into town or catch a taxi ease. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly during our stay, it was a wonderful stay at this hotel from start to finish.
