It's rated as a five star hotel but I would say it's more of a decent four-star. Good spa facilities and excellent location just a short walk via boardwalk down to beach but outdoor pool area very industrial looking and not particularly inviting. Good food and helpful staff.

Just returned from a 4 day stay at this Hotel. A reasonable price for a triple room with breakfast and a very nice room with a sea view. Spotless clean and kept that way by an excellent cleaning staff. Reception and bar staff all first class, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good with plenty of choice, however here is my only slight criticism that the hot buffet could have been hotter. Hotel facilities first class two heated pools and sauna and stream rooms free of charge.Spa pool and treatments were available and my wife and daughter both had massages which they enjoyed. All in all a great break and will definitely return. Thank you Solverde.

Good stay, Indoor pool good but take swimming caps as compulsory to wear in indoor pool !!! Wooden Platform to walk over to Espinho town and beach .Helpful staff. Should have more vegetarian choice for breakfast and vegetarian food should be on different counter to non -vegetaians..Good gym. Lifts in hotel found jacuzzi- too forceful and not worth 10 eurosp/p Trains available to Porto too from hotel- 15-20min walk.

We booked for a week and stayed for almost 2 weeks ! This should say more than all other reaction ... but never the less : A very nice staff at the reception, in the bar, in the restaurant, the cleaning ladies, always friendly and helpful ! A spacious room with a good bed and spacious bathroom - every day as clean. And breakfast ... nothing that you can't think of, and if it isn't there, it will be brought to you ... The only thing that might keep you awake at night, is the sound of the see :) !!! We will certainly recommend Solverde Spa & Wellness Center !!!

Large US style hotel, on the beach. More business/conference focused but perfectly adequate for tourists. Looks a little dated both inside and out but spotlessly clean and scrupulously maintained. Nice lobby and bar area. Excellent restaurant for dinner (3 course set menu € 26), good food and service. Buffet breakfast, good but unremarkable. Large rooms and bathrooms. Only disappointment was the WiFi which was a bit sporadic and nothing nearby, except a Lidl. Pool towels supplied, plenty of sun beds but no pool bar. We stayed here as a base from which to visit Porto (lovely city) but also for some pool/beach as well. Hotel is in between two rail stations, one (Granja) to the north, about 17 mins walk and another (Espinho) to the south, about 30 minute walk. Better service and tickets available from Espinho but once you have tickets and work out the timetable Granja is more convenient - main station in Porto is about 30 minutes by train. Espinho is a seaside town that has seen better days. There appeared to be a couple of reasonable fish restaurants but nothing else of attraction.

This was not the hotel, location or type of holiday we had booked - we were bumped off by the 'opulent' inland country and golf Hotel Vidalgo (great reviews, but they clearly don't care about their clients and regularly overbook and send people here). From the word go, Bruno on check in couldn't do enough to help sort out a mess that was not of their making, coordinating with tour companies, taxis, golf courses etc. Meals found for late arrivals with no fuss etc etc. Wine recommendations at dinner were excellent and reasonably priced. Great location by the sea. So, if this style of hotel is for you, the staff will provide an outstanding experience

My Wife and attended a wedding in the solverde wellness and spa hotel 4th to 7th Aug 2017 Check in was straight forward with no complications and our bags were quickly taken to our room on the 4th floor The room was comfortable, modern and was big enough for two people with a large comfortable bed The view from the balcony was ok as it overlooked the pool area A Minibar is also provided with the usual inflated prices Wi-Fi in the rooms was good and didn’t give us any problems The main reception/bar area is well stocked with comfy chairs and couches and is staffed with very helpful and pleasant people It also and has a nice central smoking area if you so wish to use it There are two pools one outdoor and one indoor (heated) Access to the beach is through a tunnel under the rail tracks at the end of the outdoor pool And has a boardwalk that goes right into the town. We used the restaurant on one occasion and unless you’re having a fish dish I would not bother with it I ordered Lasagne and an not quite sure what I got it was mince and weak gravy in pasta (I don’t eat fish however I was assured it was excellent and it looked it ) As we were on a short stay and attending a wedding and constantly on the go we didn’t get to try out all this location has to offer but overall we had a very pleasant stay And we would consider staying here again John and Jackie Kerrigan Aug 2017

It was like a trip back in time to teenage family holidays but we kind of liked that. Yes it could be more modern but it did what it did well and the Spa bit was great especially the sauna/steam part which beat others we have stayed at by miles with about 5 different rooms including an ice room.

This was a family trip with a year and a half old child. Staff was amazing, really polite, helpful and professional. They knew what they were doing. We had a leak in our room from the AC which soaked most of our child's clothes. Once reported maintenance staff came within minutes to fix the issue, while cleaning staff took all the clothes to wash and helped cleaning up the mess. Restaurant staff was really nice and made sure we started our day well. Hotel provided a crib. The crib was not one of those foldable travel cribs, but s real wooden crib. Room was clean and king size bed was really nice to sleep on. Outdoor pool was heated and clean. Issues with children's pool though. Problem Main reason we chose this hotel is that it offered indoor pool in addition to the outdoor pools. Our kid really likes swimming and playing in the water and we needed indoor pool because of the weather conditions (e.g. windy). However, indoor pool was not working for 4 days of our stay and that information was not provided on the website. Issues - small children pool was not heated or cleaned. filtration system was probably not working as the water looked filthy. - room looked dated and in need of upgrade to be 5 star worthy. - balcony - room we had did not have a balcony, yet on all of the hotel pictures they only show rooms with balconies. if you go to a beach or need a place to hang your wet clothes, you are out of luck. - breakfast - not much variety for a 5 star hotel. few types of coldcuts, two type of cheese, lots of variety with fruit. some food could have been prepared better. We enjoyed our stay, but would consider coming back only if the price is in the range of a 4 star hotel.

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of July with the idea of mixing some golf and sightseeing. Our greeting was warm and as we had booked basic rooms had a nice view of the car park. As we didn't spend much time in the room that did not matter. It was clean, comfortable and well appointed. All four of us found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The only downside for us was the weather which tended to be misty or overcast, but in truth it did not prevent us from doing exactly what we had planned. We enjoyed our breakfasts in the spacious dining room. We ate a few times in the evenings from the set menu which we found to be perfectly adequate. The Maitre D, (?Carlos) was excellent. Always aware of what was going on yet always able to chat. Bob
