    Testimonials

    4 testimonials for Pousada of Amares – Hotel Santa Maria de Bouro – Hotel Amares

    1. Très beau bâtiment, service quasi inexistant, chambre dépouillée, terrasse très agréable, salade exquise, durée wi fi gratuit trop limité, parking éloigné, pas de service bagage. Village bruyant la nuit.

    2. Impressing old building; nice room but sober – beautiful bathroom; very good restaurant – excellent service – extensive breakfast; very beautiful environment close to the Peneda-Gerês National Park

    3. We visited a week after Easter to find we were the only guests; the staff were very attentive and we received “butler” style service throughout our stay – the service couldn’t be faulted. The modern style of the pousada has been tastefully created in this ancient building; it is unfortunate that the church is not open to pousada guests other than on a Sunday.

    4. Estava tudo muito bem, com muito bom gosto e qualidade. Em relação ao restaurante também gostámos muito embora as doses fossem demasiado grandes, talvez fosse boa ideia ter pratos mais pequenos para quem quer só comer algo não muito pesado. A piscina é simplesmente soberba :-)
