Stayed at the hotel first week August 2017. Lovely hotel and a good golf course, deserted most days so had the course to ourselves. A true 5 star hotel where you pay 5 star prices, drinks and food expensive. Ate out most nights in the town, 10 minute walk. Standard room on the small side but comfortable.

Played over a week. Very under played. Lots of raised tees and in great condition in October. Lots of leaves on the fairways sadly but they were doing their best to clear. The last five holes up in the hills are spectacular. We played off the blues it was plenty long enough!

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of my husbands birthday.
When we arrived at 1-20 am, the valet parked our car and took our bags. At the desk there was a mix up with our booking arrival date, but this was resolved instantly and we were given, drinks while the problem was sorted and our bags taken to the rooms.
The rooms are very comfortable with lovely comfy bed with exceptionally good quality bed linen. Molton and Brown toiletries, slippers and robes provided.
The breakfast and the breakfast room was amazing. If you wanted champagne and freshly squeezed orange juice it was there.
Some people moaned about the evening menu, but this is fine dining and not to everyone's taste. Personally we found the food excellent and at all times all waiting staff in all areas were fantastic.
The two pools,spar pool and whole spar area are wonderful. You have the chance to take the waters from the spar that is situated within the grounds and discover the beautiful gardens and grounds of the palace, you can even play a round of golf which some people come and stay at the palace just to do so as the course is supposed to be excellent.
A big thank you to Angelo for one of the best trips we have ever experienced. The Douro river cruise with lunch and port tasting.
A note to the people who have commented on the price of drinks at the hotel.... Remember this is a 5 star hotel not Wetherspoons.
If you stay at the hotel on a deal then you may wish to drink in a bar in the town. Where you can have a beer for around a euro and coffee for about 80 cents, but if you are the type of person who looks at the price of such things, don't stay here.
Again this hotel is a top end 5 star hotel and something very special.

Nice hotel in a golf course with hot and cold water springs. Really nice and luxurious. It's a good visit and great place for pictures.

The whole course is a joy to play, quite a flat front nine, the a hilly and tighter back nine, some lovely scenery but it's the greens that impressed me the most, true and fast, but fair at the same time.
The actual club house and changing rooms don't quite match the quality of the course .
