10/10 Exceptional

Exceptional service. We were checked in early after our flight, got great advice on where to go, and when our tour company cancelled an excursion, they quickly found us a driver/guide who took us and was very accommodating. View from the top floor is also incredible.

2/10 Poor

Went away for a spa experience at a five star hotel, honestly it was more of a 3 star hotel. We had paid extra for the Facilities at this hotel which weren’t working and paying the extra premium for five stars was definitely not worth it in this hotel. We could have got holiday inn for a third of the price and we would have got a better service, comfort and the room would have been clean. We had the deluxe room, which is no different from the normal room except the bed lifts up like the hospital beds. The bed was the wrong way around, instead of my head elevating my legs were. the staff told me that this isn't a issue and some guests had just turned the bed around… why anyone would do that is beyond me. But the issue was still not fixed before our leave. With the spa we Were given loads of excuses that they didn’t know the spa facilities were out of order and we had just brought it to there attention. The thing was they had signs saying this is out of order, so they were aware of it. The only thing working was hot tub which had dirt in it, Also They gave us a room with wall paper hanging off, and loads of dust on the head boards of the bed. Loads of other issues too, which i don’t want to go into as it will make this a long read. Im writing this because if i had known this before i booked it id chose somewhere else as this was not worth the price and ruined my getaway loads of hotels which offer better service that really are five stars instead of acting like five stars

Porto - Palacio Oct 2021
A great trip to Porto. The Porto Palacio hotel was excellent, a little out of the way of the centre, main bars etc..(4k) but we knew that beforehand and enjoyed the chance to be able to explore, go into some other places en-route that you wouldn't necessarily see. We also used the hotel spa, the treatments/massages were fantastic and the place itself lovely, however by the pool area the sauna & steam room were not working, which was slightly disappointing. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable, the minibar was not stocked but we were advised to request anything and it would be brought to the room (assume this was due to Covid?) The rooftop bar was excellent and provided a great view and the food looked amazing, though we had already booked other restaurants! Overall a great place to stay

8/10 Very Good

The room was very nice. Extremely spacious and the bed was comfy. The hotel itself feels very clean throughout and boasts pleasant decor and lighting. I feel the parking should be included within the cost of the room as should the spa.
