Rio do Prado is a unique hotel located near Óbidos village and lagoon. It has 20 individual suites in a countryside environment. The modern infrastructures of the hotel are perfectly incorporated in the nature. There is a common building with reception desk, restaurant and living room. The outside swimming pool is surrounded by the main building, by the small spa and the greenhouse.
The rooms are huge - standard room 45 sqmts and the superior suite even bigger - with a large bathtub, an indoor fireplace, free Wi-Fi and large comfortable bed. The room decoration is stylish and full of good taste details. The breakfast is good with quality local products. Maybe there should be a little more variety. The restaurant offers wonderful local dishes very well confectioned; some of the deserts are a work of art from the chef! Maybe the chairs in the restaurant could be a little more comfortable.
The spa has a sauna and hammam bath free to use; it is quite small and not very comfortable with narrow corridor and bathroom. Also some maintenance works are needed mainly in the greenhouse that is quite degraded. Unfortunately there is also some car noise from the road nearby.
If you like being in the countryside this hotel is great for a relaxed weekend getaway. The staff is very friendly and informal.
