Hotel Boa Vista: Great location with amazing views. Staff very friendly bar Susanna on front desk. Rooms spacious and hotel spotlessly clean. Breakfast is great other meals are what you expect of 3star. No complaints. Easy to access beach, old/new town and harbour. Wifi excellent. Only saw a cat on the premises twice. Masseuse is supposed to be excellent. Great...

As we missed our flight home from Cape Verde we stayed in this very small local hotel. With just a little bit of TLC this place could be transformed! It was okay but we would not have stayed here through choice - saying that the staff were very friendly, a very nice buffet breakfast. The room was spacious but we...

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room we received was exactly what we ordered with a great view of the sea. The service at the hotel was up to a four star hotel! Its location allows either to go to the beach or to Porto. For the latter, the tram or the walk makes the...

Very basic hotel. The room was clean but small. It was annoying that the rooms are not individually climate controlled. So you have to bear whatever the hotel thinks you want, which in our case was not ideal. Breakfast was very ordinary and by our 3rd morning we were tired of it. In fact, the cut fruits were stale as...

I stayed a few days in Boa-Vista with a friend. The hotel is clean, nice. Easy to get lost in :) breakfast is nice, with a lot of options. The view from the top is amazing. Worth to have a coffee in the bar. Ocean is pretty close, like around 4 mins walk, with 2 lighthouses nearby. Veery cool. However...

Close to the park of the end of the river and to the sea too. It's a perfect position if you like also to have a walk/go eat in front of the sea. Served by buses (city line and touristic ones, 15 minutes to go to center town). The area it's well served, with many good restaurants. The hotel is...

This hotel is well situated outside the city centre but with tram and buses on its doorstep. The rooms are clean and tidy with all amenities. The service is friendly (especially in the bar at the top) and the bonus is to be able to park the car in the underground car park at the back. It is a tight...

A well-established hotel at the mouth of the estuary of the Douro River/Atlantic Ocean and very close to the lovely city of Porto. The vintage tram to the city centre is only a 10 minute walk away. The hotel has comfortable modern rooms, a rooftop bar, restaurant and swimming pool, and serves a good buffet breakfast. There is also a...

I stayed at this wonderful hotel in mid September for 3 nights. My room was facing the river and sea confluence. I had a seamless check in and checkout experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Boa-Vista reserves for you the privilege of being the only Hotel in Foz, the noble part of the city, where the Douro river meets the Atlantic ocean. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything.The Historic Centre can be quickly reached along the waterfront, offering views of the natural beauty of the river and its imposing bridges.When returning to Foz, you can enjoy the walk between the river and the sea, cross the romantic Passeio Alegre garden and admire the 16th century architecture of S. Joao Fort, just across from the hotel. After the piers and lighthouses at the Douro’s bar, the sophisticated atmosphere of the modern outdoor cafes overlooking the sea is well worth a visit. ... more   less
