The Portuguese Pousadas are a network of hotel locations partially owned by the State that offer modern and luxury comfort in historic castles, monasteries, or purpose-built buildings. Each is decorated to reflect to the guests the culture and heritage of the region in which they are located.

Pousada da Ria (Town: Murtosa/Torreira)

The purpose built Pousada which is in the Costa Prata region is located in an attractive position with view to the Atlantic Ocean to the west and view over the Aveiro Estuary to the east. This inland waterway is busy in the early evening with small lights as the local fishermen make their catches. There are nineteen rooms with a restaurant and bar. There is also a swimming pool and tennis court for the convenience of the guests.

The Pousada is approximately 67 kms from Porto Airport.

The normal Rates per night for a Pousada range from 84.00 until 169.00, depending on the season, the day of the week, the length of stay, and the chosen Pousada. However, we also have many special promotions and discounts to offer the visitor which can lower the cost per night per room. (Staying over Saturday night in a Pousada will normally incur a much higher room rate). Some examples of our various promotions are listed below:

a) - A stay per night from Sunday until Friday enjoys a lesser room rate.
b) - A stay of several nights in Pousadas will also enjoy a lesser room rate.
c) - Honeymoon couples staying two nights in the same Pousada enjoy a special rate.
