    excellent, well located, very good 'cuisine' with portuguese specialities and with style! Daily menu at noon 15 €, drinks not included, exccellent and exquise wine selection of the best wines in Portugal at normal prices (10€ average), ideal for guests (who have a car rented) who want to visit North Portugal with nearby Porto 35 minutes, airport 30 minutes, Braga (20 minutes), Guimaraes !! ideal for groups (sports and business meetings). Normal european breakfast with bacon and eggs, and normal assortment. Bar, lounge, reading room, local newspapers etc. Cheaper compared to Porto hotels and pensions (average) and better equipped.

    Quiet rooms not facing the sea.There's a siren blowing on the shore that kills the peace in rooms facing the sea

    My room was colder than my friend's due, I believe, to have a long exterior wall

    Everything very friendly efficient staff, room very comfortable and relaxing public areas of hotel will stay there again

    Staff very good and friendly. Position very good, close to the beach and short walk into a pleasant little town.Hotel facilities excellent and restaurant good value for money.

    Bedrooms need updating, particularly the bathrooms. Four star downstairs but two star upstairs.

    We had stayed here 19 years ago, changed and enlarged but still excellent.Great rooms, location facilities, food and staff.

    We stayed at this hotel for one night as we were travelling through Portugal. It was very comfortable and the breakfast was more than adequate.

    There is a lighthouse close by with a quite loud warning horn which continues through the night.

    We did enjoy the design of the building. Very nice. Making you feel comfortable. The pool, surrounded by the hotel, looked lovely. We didn't use it for it was too early in the season. Dinner was very good. Experienced staff. Breakfast was good. Breakfast room looks out onto pool, just great. Beach is good. Town is simple.

    Having a room at the front of hotel, means that at night, you hear the warning sound from the lighthouse for boats coming in. That was not too handy.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room and bathroom were very big.

    The furniture of the room and the whole hotel was very old fashioned - it felt like beeing in the 90s. The breakfast was ok but we can't recommand to drink the "coffee". They charge 5 euro/day for internet access - today this no standard. if you want to park in the garage you have to pay 5,50 euro/day.

    Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable clean rooms, lovely pool area. Great view out across the sea.

    Would be better if the wi-fi was free.

    The most amazing find ever! A three star place with all the trimmings of a classic seaside resort. Amazing, knowledgable bartender, wonderful dinner service complete with classically trained maitre d' and sommelier. Comfy, cozy place with no complaints. Great stay!

    Hotel Suave Mar is in nearly all respects a comfortable and well managed Hotel.The Public areas,restauarants,bars,lounges,pools are all clean and well maintained to a high standard.The rooms are of a good size and the beds are "man sized" the matresses pillows etc of good quality.The food ( mostly Portuguese cuisine) was well cooked and portions were generous served by experienced and deferential waiters.All staff were professional,helpful and courteous at all times.I Would have happily paid twice the price to stay in a Hotel of this quality.Obrigadissimo to all the staff.However there is one problem that the staff and management have no control over which I will address in the next column but is worth noting.!

    O k the downside is that if you are a light sleeper there is a foghorn which is sounded about every 45 seconds from a position very close or sounds very close, to the Hotel-what a shame it really did spoil my stay at the Suave Mar-Sorry.

    The hotel and staff met all our needs.

    The lighthouse or other location made a siren noise at all hours difficult to relax and sleep

    The hotel has an interesting architecture and location. It is obviously at its best in the summer but it still manages to be comfortable and good value out of season.

    There was heavy engineering harbour reconstruction work going on outside the front door of the hotel. Not their fault but it certainly spoiled the view

  • Older travelers

    The Hotel Suave Mar is a short drive from Oporto airport and is an ideal base for exploring northern Portugal.

  • Couple

    A good price for a hotel directly on the beach, bad was that there was a construction along the whole beach side.

    The receptionist lady was not very friendly nor helpful. After our check-out we asked to used the free internet on the provided pc that was prohibited to us as we already checked-out! There was no offer of any other help, nor any support in using the internet, very disappointing service.
