The team at Six Senses Douro Valley is so good that even when you stay there for work it feels like play. Since I was there two years, ago the place has bloomed and flourished as a flawless run resort with anticipatory service, great food, beautiful accommodations and lots of heart & soul.

there are hardly no words to describe this place. everything was amazing and beautiful the rooms ,the spa. the gardens. the views, the vineyards . Breakfast was incredible . the attention to details everywhere was unbelievable . we did thing that the price of the dinner at the restaurant was not justified or the wine tastings pricing. I would like to mention the superb service all around but to give a special thanks to Marta,the therapist that took care of me . We hope to come back

This is an excellent hotel. The location is perfect, rural and very serene. A huge investment has been poured into this hotel. The room had a great view over the river. The bed was extremely comfortable. There is a marked lack of wardrobe space which is surprising; this meant that we lived out of our bags for five nights. The quality of service on the whole is very good, however some staff could do with smiling a bit more and being more enthusiastic. The acting general manager was present on several occasions and introduced herself on our first night- this is a very good sign and to be commended. The spa is excellent and one of the best in the world. Apart from breakfast which was exceptional with a great spread from a buffet, the food needs serious work: our first dinner was appalling. Some starters were served cold. My wife's seabass was really overcooked and my fish was not good. We did not have dinner at the hotel again. Lunch on another day was ok but nothing special and not commensurate with the general standard of such an establishment. We had a wine tasting one night. Although the host was knowledgeable and friendly, the wines were cheap. It is shocking: people are paying 400 euros plus per night and cheap wines costing few euros are being served. It is like serving economy class wines in first class. Overall, I would strongly recommend the hotel and would definitely return. I would also wish to explore other six senses properties.

Saw this reviewed in The Times when it first opened in 2015 and made a mental note to stay there one day - it looked like my kind of hotel. But it has one big problem. I had planned to use it as a springboard to visit the local wineries and even planned a day trip to Porto. But once in the Six Senses I just didn't want to leave. It's simply beautiful and any time spent not in the hotel seemed like time wasted. It's quite simply one of the most wonderful buildings I have visited. We stayed in a room with a view overlooking the river. All mod cons were included and everything had been thought of. But the communal areas were heavenly. Absolutely loved the wine library, a room full of comfy chairs where you're surrounded by glass cabinets with a wide selection of Douro wines and ports. We ate a special organic, home grown meal by the pool one evening and enjoyed the main restaurant the next. Both were fabulous. But the breakfasts... what can I say? Sumptuous doesn't do it justice. It's an event and you would do well to allow the whole morning for it and skip lunch. Only wish I could afford to stay here more often - it's a real treat and I will definitely be returning.

This to us was luxury at its best. Everything was completely faultless and absolutely beautiful. We had a small suite on the 5th floor with breathtaking views of the hotel grounds and vineyards, the room lacked nothing. The beds were super comfortable with pillows that wrapped around your neck with just the right level of support. The food was probably the best continuous food we have ever had and we have stayed in many good hotels worldwide. The breakfast was altogether amazing and lasted us all day until cocktails - the best - in the early evening. We had a facial, massages, swam in the pool and made our own body scrubs. All totally divine. However the icing on the cake are the staff, we experienced the best service we have had anywhere, never obsequious, just super efficient and friendly. We felt they had become our friends. If you would like to spoil yourself for a few days I couldn’t recommend this hotel more highly. I will definitely be heading to other Six Senses in other parts of the world.
