    5 testimonials for Pousada of Torreira-Murtosa – Hotel Ria

    1. We stayed here for two nights in early May 2015. We also stayed at four other pousadas on the same trip. This one was the best of all. This was mainly because of the tremendous reception and service we received from all the staff. We hated to leave. The facilities are great and to sit on your own balcony and watch the fishing boats is worth the trip. We will be back next year.

    2. The last days of May, 2011, we spent in Pousada Murtosa. Welcome was warm and friendly: with all other staff contacts we experienced this as well. The hotel was comfortable: (early!) sunrise was beautiful! Biking and hiking trails in the direct viscinity of the hotel are lacking. These could have made the stay even more special.

    3. This was our last pousada on our tour around the northern and central parts of Portugal. We absolutely LOVED the location and the peacefulness. Reception staff were fantastic and helpful. VIsited the surrounding towns and beaches, marina and had a delicious lunch overlooking the river. Take a ferry boat ride to Aveiro , visit the small towns and of course the beaches ! Pousada had a nautical theme but very comfortable and clean. Take time to sit out on the balconies and take in the views .It was one of of favorite places on the Ria and plan to visit again to explore the area more ! Many thanks.

    4. I visited, and spent the night. Upon linveag, I had to go back and eat again.This is astounding, with the wealthy of dining options: Hearts of cockle, Chora Soup Faces Cod with tomatoes, Ray Pitau in sauce, with boiled potatoes in their skin; Goat stuffed with oven-roasted new potatoes and vegetables, the Pousada Confectionery, in which the egg-pudding is a sweet binding on the table.We can find all these dishes, and even more in Pousada da Ria de Aveiro.But if you think that this Pousada only going to eat you are mistaken, because the activities around the estuary are such that there is not a uninteresting moment on the agenda of the visitors.Fishing, boating, hiking and biking, river beaches, and wildlife of the dunes of San Jacinto, make this site one of the most beautiful destinations in Portugal.

    5. Whilst this is a perfectly acceptable hotel it did not have the “wow” factor of the other pousada,s.It is very much a 70,s style and whilst the location is spectacular it comes unfortunatly with an unwanted smell from the creek.It would also be helpful if there were more sign,s directing you to the site.On a scale of ten it would be a six or seven
