The front-desk did there utmost to solve the problems we got with the airline internet check-in. Should have been easy but is was not and I got really good assistance to help me with the airline check-in process and printing of boarding cards for the early flights.

After two days in transit, relaxing at the luxurious Palacio was sheer bliss. The ambience is unbeatable; the architects have converted a Baroque palace and adjoining flour mill, both fallen into disrepair, into a glorious hotel perched on the banks of the Douro River, just outside Porto. The decorations of the main room of the palace made me think that...

We had a super romantic experience is this amazing palace with inspiring view over Douro Valley. The room could be decorated in a more convencional way to be in line with the historial style of the building but we loved it anyway. Outstanding service and really pleasant and cosy atmosphere.
