Fodor's Expert Review Grande Hotel de Luso

Rua Dr. Cid de Oliveira 86, Luso, Aveiro, 3050-223, Portugal Fodor's Choice

Looking a bit like a lighthouse that has lost its way, this hulking complex topped by a towering turret is a mishmash of architectural styles that were popular in 1945. But the guest rooms are large and airy and have sleek modern furnishings. Some also have terraces overlooking an Olympic-size pool fed by the natural spring. The hotel is adjacent to the renowned Termos de Luso (accessed via a tunnel), with its many therapeutic programs. The on-site restaurant serves a good selection of creatively prepared regional foods.
