The name means "nice view" and this hotel does indeed overlook the Douro estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. It's in Foz, a 10- to 15-minute taxi ride or 20-minute bus ride ticket west of the town center, making it handy for the area's swish restaurants and nightclubs. The handsome mid-19th-century former convent has small, simply decorated guest rooms that are well equipped. Ask for one of the pricier rooms with sea views (and Jacuzzi in the bathroom), or settle for the view
from the rooftop pool and terrace. There's a spacious gym but no sauna.
