    Perfect getaway

    My partner and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Quinta de Ventozelo, everything was so perfect, curated and organized. Great getaway to decompress from city life.

    Great location

    Excellent location overlooking the river Douro and the little village of Pinhao. Swimming pool area west facing and infinity pool ideally placed for social network pictures. Local produce in restaurant is welcome although it restricted some choice. Pastries and coffee need some improvement.Our room was one of the special ones as they used an old wine storage facility to accomodate a modern suite. Very good job adapting old structure to new uses!! Comfortable, spaceous, clean... overall good experience

    Dream stay in Douro

    It was an incredible stay. Compared to other 5 star hotels we stayed in across Portugal, Ventozelo even exceeded those! The location is stunning, the service is perfect, the staff are friendly and generous, the rooms are clean and luxurious and the food is just something amazing! The fresh produce from the garden is amazing. My wife is vegan and the chef specially prepared incredible meals for her dinner and breakfast. We would love to go back and definitely recommend this to everyone!

    The water stopped working the day we were supposed to check out, and it took several hours to get it fixed and delayed our check out time. Onto sure how often that happens. But the property is very beautiful, with stunning views and the food was excellent.

    This place is bliss. Everything there is perfect, especially the wine and food. The property is gorgeous, the pool and it's views are stunning, our dinner was one to remember! The room quarters are comfortable, quite, beautiful. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Property is hilly, wear shoes good for cobblestone, hiking.

    Great Stay except for the Resident Dog

    Extremely nice property. We did a wine tasting with Rita who was fantastic and very knowledgable. Our server at dinner was hilarious and we enjoyed all of the food, including the breakfast. Downside: there is very large St. Bernard style dog that freely roams the property. There was a fox poking around the cherry trees at night and this dog barked from midnight until 5AM, I had to sleep with ear plugs and my head wrapped in a pillow. The next morning as we walked towards the main office this dog became aggressive towards myself and my wife (keep in mind this dog weighs 140-150 lbs) and a member of the staff had to intervene. I wouldn't be comfortable with small children with an unleashed dog this size on the property.

    Beautiful property. Nice restaurant. Great pool though small. Area around the pool could be improved with more lounging space.

    I Simply Love this Hotel

    Stunning Hotel in all the right ways. Having stayed at several Douro hotels, this is my pick of the list. The use of the landscape to form the footprint of the hotel is excellent. They even have an onsite museum and a virtual walking guide so that you can walk the property and visit the full winemaking experience. Downriver the views are not as nice as you get more of a populated hillside. This makes their place even more special. The restaurant is excellent and so you will be delighted with any of your meals, breakfast lunch, or dinner. You will notice the menu change shortly after the fish arrives etc. Walk the property and you will see that allot of the fresh veg comes from the farm. The pool has poolside service and BTW, the views from the pool are breathtaking. The team has thought about the finer details and because they are highly motivated, you will feel that confidence and delight oozing from them. My only reservation is, tip is, try not to stay in rooms 16-20 as the staff come whizzing in at 7am and drive straight pas these rooms and you will wake up thinking you are in the city and not where you thought you were.

    Good but disappointing

    Property, Great. Rooms, Great. Reception, Terrible. Were actually told the room wasn't available but we could pay more and upgrade. Then told the room would be available but we would need to wait 3 hours when we arrived at 3pm on a 37 degree day. Most expensive wine by the glass i have had in 3 years in Portugal. Terrible considering you are drinking their wine in their vineyard. Service from all other staff apart from reception was great.
