    Speed up Check-in!

    The time taken to check-in with only one person managing reception was unacceptable! The rooms were very spacious and comfortable Breakfast is a little basic

    Good overall, attention to detail needed

    Stayed here for a wedding, the hotel is lovely and service at the restaurant is top notch. Some small issues - booking a taxi via to hotel is a bit inefficient, and the body wash in my room was already used / had not been replaced. The pillows aren’t feather pillows which you’d expect from a 5* hotel. There was a lightbulb burned out above the bathroom sink. Otherwise everything was good.

    Nice, but not Rome

    We have stayed at the Melia hotel in Rome, which was outstanding, and booked this hotel on the back of that experience. It is a good hotel but more like most hotels of its type than anything special. Location wasn't great, out of the main town centre, but the room was ok and clean and the general facilities, including the pool were good. Annoying little things like you are only entitled to one towel per day if you haven't booked the upgraded spa package and a formal rather than genuinely welcoming reception check in. Lots of families with kids which made the pool very full and very noisy.

    Food was best we had.

    Quite a way out from Centre but close to Bom Jesus. Bus 43 gets you from station to outside hotel (and back into Centre). Very large hotel with huge open plan room. Not sure about bath only being seperated by curtain from bed or screen for toilet and shower. Not very private in that respect. Half board is great value, buffet style dinner was superb as well as breakfast - first class!

    Great hotel about 3 kilometres from city centre.

    The receptionist was delightful and efficient. The public areas beautifully designed. Our room most comfortable. Huge bath. Great shower. Appliances of the very best quality. The restaurant on that night offered a buffet dinner. The food was fantastic. As was the breakfast buffet, quite stunning.

    Amazing, great for all. Also Romantic, I love it.

    Bed amazing, breakfast amazing, shower amazing. The room had great lighting and a great view, I was on the 11th flloor. Don't be put off by it being "Out of the centre" because it really doesnt matter as Braga is very small. I chose to walk into town and it only took 20 mins. They had relaxing live music on at the bar in the evening, this was a saturday. This place is very stylish, I will deffinatly return.
