              Brand new hotel with very modern rooms, spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pool with nice terrace. Breakfast buffet is good, restaurant is excellent. The concierge was very helpful and gave us excellent tips for visiting the area. Excellent massage service at the spa.

              Swimming pools and indoor parking require extra payment, but free parking is more or less tolerated in front of the hotel. Room service was poor and didn't always understand English. No pay per view, a bit surprising for a five stars. No kettle for some in-room coffee or tea -- everything must be ordered through room service. Although rooms can be affordable, extra services (spa, room service, restaurant, etc.) are far from cheap. Unless you have a car, be prepared to take the taxi for any trip to the city and back (6 eur each time).

              Hotel is very modern, with fast free wifi everywhere. Electronic switches and computer controlled tv in the room work rather well, after a short learning curve.

              Not a criticism of the hotel per si, but it is quite far from city center.

              The most beautifully designed hotel we have ever seen (ultra-modern with great style). An extremely helpful staff. Large rooms. Good (but not great) breakfast choices. Limited free outdoor parking (or you can pay for underground).

              The a/c did not work in the room we were given -- we had to move after unpacking. But the staff were extremely helpful (and we received fruitbowls every day of our stay for the inconvenience). The door to the shower and adjoining toilet was extremely hard to move.

              Top hotel. Rooms clean and hi-tech (each room has it's own WiFi). Beds dead comfy. Breakfast great, bar lovely and the floaty bean bags in the pool are cool

              The hotel is called Meliâ, not Meliá! We were there because our daughter had just got married in Holland and this trip to Portugal was our wedding present, as such the hotel upgraded the newly weds to a suit for three nights which was really very nice. We had a normal room but even that one was very nicely decorated, very quiet. Breakfast was nice too and if you book when you check in it is cheaper. The pool facilies were nice, we didn't try the spa, only thing is that even the big pool is built thinking of children so there is not much space to swim, most of it is too shalow although they have a kid's pool!

              Again the depth of the pool... I don't need a deep pool but I like to swim so 1,50m would be nice but in most of the pool the water only comes till the knees. They have nice chairs to float around in the pool, though! Our room had a windown between the bedroom and the bathroom, very design but not practical if one is still asleep while the other uses the bathroom (some rooms have a courtain). Too little light to apply make up and wrong light as well which makes shadows under the eyes. Our daughter was near the elevator which makes a lot of noise because of a useless tape which doesn't stop talking. The duvet was awfully thick seeing that we had very high temperatures and we don't like to sleep with the airco on!

              lovely hotel, staff are great. I got a great rate.

              parking is a nightmare. It's free but space is limited and normally all taken at night and nowhere nearby so you have to just wait for someone to leave.

              The staff was amazing and warm, especially the reception staff is very helpful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and lovely. All lights and air conditioner are controlled by digital touch screens and you can even surf in the internet from TV set. Also, the bathroom is divided from the room by a curtain, so when you draw the curtaion aside, there is a bathtuh in the middle of the room. You can fill the tub and lay down while you can still watch TV. The price is nothing when compared to the services that you get. If you go to Braga, do not even bother to find another hotel.

              The location is not so close to the city centre but you can use the cab which will cost around 4-5 Euros. The Wi-fi internet was free at the hotel but the signal reception was poor in the rooms but works great in the reception.

              Spacious rooms with a modern look and decoration (throughout the hotel). The bathroom has a very interesting concept where you can pullback a curtain and have a bath in the middle of the room. Staff was very helpful when we needed to change the pillows to lower profile ones (at night).

              Some privacy is lost with the WC not being completely closed off (the door isn't all the way to the roof).The spa and swimming pool aren't as big as I would like for this type of hotel, but with the hotel half-booked it will probably suffice.

              There was an entry fee to the pool, and I wasn`t informed until the check out.
