This Pousada (a former Palace) is modern, inviting, historical, and almost everything you would want in a resort hotel. It's also right on the Duoro River and a short and direct drive to the Port Houses (and beyond). However, if you want accommodation that is perhaps more of a walk from all the Port action, Gayle and I also enjoyed our 4 Star stay at the Hotel Pestana Porto.
The Palace is has been very nicely restored and even has it's own historical chapel. I particularly enjoyed the spa (with cold and hot pools), the restaurant and bar, the modern and very comfortable room, and the sheer luxury of just hanging out.Recommended for:History Buffs
