Nice hotel in good location
Everything was good, but I had to pay for using the gym and swimming pool. This was not mentioned at the time of booking and I was assuming that you should be able to use the gym, like any other hotel.

8/10 Very good

Great location
Our stay was very short but the whole family will remember it for a long time. Great location, comfortable, warm, cozy place to stay during winter and friendly staff. The room was clean, with a tasty breakfast buffet, and we had a room-service dinner. It was good and they gave us freebies, the 'Portuguese Ovos Moles pastries'-'Aveiro soft eggs' for dessert.

Melia always impresses. Stayed in the one in Aveiro and now the one in Braga. Both beautiful. Food was also the best we’ve ever had in a hotel. Melia is my go to now in Portugal.
