    Six Senses Douro Valley
    Lamego
    #1 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 792 reviewsTripAdvisor (792)
    Free WiFi

    A renovated 19th-century manor house, Six Senses Douro Valley is perched on the hills of the Douro Valley (about 76 miles east of Porto) near generations-old vineyards and the Duoro River. Because the area is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the hotel prioritizes reducing its carbon footprint and implementing environmentally friendly policies. Plus, the property features a 10-acre protected woodland, an organic garden and a composting center. The hotel also houses a wine library and several restaurants and bars. Numerous wine-centric activities – including wine and dine river cruises and stomping on grapes during "winemaker for the day" experiences – are available on- and off-site as well, for an additional fee. After a busy day, recent visitors suggest heading to the spa to take a dip in the heated indoor pool, work up a sweat at the fitness center or indulge in a massage. Multiday treatment plans are also available, as are grape-infused therapies. Modern guest rooms have minibars, sleek bathrooms, free Wi-Fi access and views of the surrounding area. In the morning, try the property's breakfast buffet, which past guests said was generous. Some cautioned, though, that while everyone throughout the hotel was friendly, the service was sometimes hit or miss.

    Olissippo Lapa Palace
    Lisbon
    #2 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1204 reviewsTripAdvisor (1204)
    Free WiFi

    This hotel is a 19th-century palace set on a hill overlooking the Tagus River in picturesque Lisbon, Portugal. (Recent guests said the views from their rooms were stunning.) Rooms are spread across three wings within the property: the Palace Wing, the Garden Wing and Villa Lapa. Accommodation features vary: Some have marble bathrooms, some have Juliet balconies and some have large terraces. However, all are equipped with free Wi-Fi, minibars, L'OCCITANE toiletries and work desks. Outside your digs, you'll find an outdoor pool surrounded by gardens, an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a gym and a Turkish steam bath. Kids facilities, such as a children's pool and a playground, are also provided on-site. When it comes to dining, Lapa Restaurant dishes out decadent Mediterranean fare and offers a detailed wine list. Two additional eateries are also available, though the seasonal Le Pavillon Restaurant-Bar is only open from May to September each year. Overall, visitors loved the five-star quality service they experienced at Olissippo Lapa Palace and said the property itself is beautiful. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here.

    The Yeatman
    Porto
    #3 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2165 reviewsTripAdvisor (2165)
    Free WiFi

    The Yeatman hotel is popular with wine connoisseurs, thanks in part to the property's impressive collection of top Portuguese wines housed within its cellars and wine-centric events like tastings, seminars and wine dinners. The property's 82 individually decorated guest rooms and suites come with private balconies or terraces, traditional Portuguese ceramic tiles, a selection of Portugal- or wine-themed books, free Wi-Fi access and LCD televisions. Select suites feature additional wine-related details like oak barrel beds and photos of local wineries. When you get hungry, recent guests suggested dining at the on-site Michelin-starred restaurant to sample some of the area's seafood and regional specialties. And while some visitors appreciated that there are two on-site infinity pools (one of which sits outside and is shaped like a wine decanter), others weren't impressed with the size of the pools and thought that the hotel should offer chairside towel service. You can find this pet-friendly hotel across the Douro River from downtown Porto.

    InterContinental Porto - Palacio das Cardosas
    Porto
    #4 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2324 reviewsTripAdvisor (2324)
    Free WiFi

    Occupying an 18th-century palace that sprawls an entire block in the heart of Porto, this InterContinental property is set in a great location. The hotel is just a short walk from the city's famous cathedral (Sé do Porto) and the riverfront, where you can take in Porto's iconic Dom Luís I Bridge. Other sights, such as the Crystal Palace Gardens and Dragão Stadium, are accessible by subway via the nearby São Bento metro station. Recent guests especially appreciated the InterContinental Porto's proximity to the Estação de São Bento train station and raved about the hotel's service and accommodations. All rooms come with minibars, free internet access and LCD TVs, while upgraded suites are two levels and include two bathrooms and separate living areas. A spa is available for treatments like body scrubs, wraps, massages and facials.  An English library-inspired bar and a contemporary Portuguese restaurant round out the hotel's additional features.

    Hotel Avenida Palace
    Lisbon
    #5 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3370 reviewsTripAdvisor (3370)
    Free WiFi

    This hotel is called the Palace for a reason. Situated along the bustling Avenida da Liberdade in central Lisbon, the striking stone façade of the Hotel Avenida Palace has the power to command the attention of even the most occupied passersby. Venture in further and its grandeur might leave you breathless – like it's done to previous guests. The hotel's Old World decor features include magnificent marble floors, striking columns and crystal chandeliers. The Living Room, a guest favorite, has its own fountain, a gold atrium and grand piano. Rooms are more subdued but nonetheless luxurious, offering wood inlay bed frames, gold light fixtures and marble bathrooms alongside modern perks such as flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access and minibars. Travelers say if you can spring for it, try to book a room with a view of the castle. Other on-site amenities include a gym, business center, massage services and a bar and lounge area. There is no on-site restaurant, though travelers say the breakfast offered was so delicious and options so vast that it more than made up for the lack of dining options. And with the hotel's placement in the very central Rossio neighborhood, you'll have no problem finding a great place to eat nearby.

    Belmond Reid's Palace
    Funchal
    #7 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1756 reviewsTripAdvisor (1756)
    Free WiFi

    If you're seeking quintessential Portuguese charm and top-notch service, travelers recommend staying at Belmond Reid's Palace. This tranquil property resides on Madeira, an island in the Atlantic Ocean that sits a few hundred miles away from mainland Portugal and Morocco. Outside the hotel, you'll discover lush gardens, picturesque ocean views and amenities like three swimming pools and tennis courts. Inside, there's a boutique, a fitness room and a spa. But it's the delectable cuisine and "gorgeous" accommodations that visitors rave about here. All of the property's eateries and buffets received glowing reviews, especially the Michelin-starred William Restaurant. And in the guest rooms and suites – which come with marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi access and satellite TVs with DVD players – former guests were impressed with the stunning garden or sea vistas offered from the private balconies and patios. After settling into your accommodations, arrange off-site activities and excursions like windsurfing, hang gliding and scuba diving through the hotel's concierges, but keep in mind that these experiences are not covered by your room rate.

    Vila Vita Parc
    Lagoa
    #8 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1931 reviewsTripAdvisor (1931)
    Free WiFi

    While VILA VITA Parc may be the place where you sleep while visiting Portugal's Algarve coast, it's so much more than just a hotel. In fact, it's a haven for foodies and oenophiles, thanks in part to its nine bars, wine cellar (which houses more than 11,000 bottles) and 10 restaurants and cafes (including one with two Michelin stars). The property also boasts an array of fitness-focused amenities, such as a driving range, fitness classes, tennis courts and water sports equipment rentals at its private beach. Those looking to simply relax can stroll through 54 acres of lush gardens, enjoy a massage at the spa or lounge on the hotel's private yacht. No matter what type of travel entices you, all recent guests agree that the property's guest rooms and suites are worth the trip. Standard rooms include split-level layouts with Portuguese tile mosaics, hardwood floors, goose-down bedding, private terraces or gardens, Wi-Fi access and bathrooms with walk-in rain showers or bathtubs. Upgrade to a larger room or suite for coastal views and more space. Some suites also come with kitchenettes, fireplaces, walk-in closets and cellphones for requesting concierge services. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    Valverde Hotel
    Lisbon
    #12 in Best Hotels in Portugal
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 762 reviewsTripAdvisor (762)
    Free WiFi

    The Valverde Hotel has a lot going for it. Its address along the bustling Avenida da Liberdade (a main thoroughfare in Lisbon) makes it easier than ever to get around the city (not to mention there's a metro station just a few blocks away). It also has plenty of amenities on-site. Here, guests can book a massage in their rooms, listen to traditional live Fado music at the on-site restaurant and bar (a guest favorite), take a dip at the outdoor swimming pool, have afternoon English tea on the patio or even book a boat rental at the concierge desk; however, there is no on-site spa or gym. But for many guests, what made the Valverde truly stand out was the service. Travelers raved about the top-notch staff members, saying they were a great blend of professional and efficient all while maintaining a friendly and laid-back relationship with the guests. Employees also have a knack for giving great local recommendations, and if you are celebrating something special, guests said that they'll mark the occasion for you. Guests were just as pleased with the rooms; they appreciated the stylish decor and how much space the rooms afforded, even the “mini rooms.” All accommodations here come outfitted with televisions, complimentary internet access and minibars.
