Very beatiful hotel, an old "mosteiro" renovated by a very famous portuguese arquitet. Big rooms, good service. We had a very nice night there. Wonderful stop trevelling in the Alentejo. Very good location, near Marvão and Castelo de Vide.

Pousada do Crato offers a blissful retreat in a stunning historical building, looking more like a castle than a monastery. Simple tasteful decoration, an impeccable architectural intervention in the recovery of the old building, attentive and friendly staff. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed two nights here on our honeymoon. We had a standard room. The front desk person showed us the master suit and described the other suits to us because we had considered upgrading. We decided to stay with our original booking and it was totally fine. It was very comfortable and quiet. We moved the chairs... More

Huge rooms, very well preserved monastery, comfortable, relaxed environment and nice people. Breakfast could have a bigger bread and cheese selection taking into consideration the fact that this region has very good bread and cheese. Small luxury indeed.

Twelve years ago we saw this medieval monastery-castle the first time. We asked if it was possible to stay there, but without reservation... So this year we made the reservation, for a suite in the old part. We've got a lot more than we expected. Room 6.01 is just great. The luxury is very ok, maybe not 5*, but the... More

We are currently enjoying a two night stay at the Pousada. The hotel is clean, and the staff is welcoming and professional. They let us check in early, (our flight landed at 6am, we arrived at 11 am.) The room was spacious and comfortable. Yes, the hotel is an older establishment, but it is in great shape. All the remarks... More

Such a beautiful building and away from it all. Loved the peace and space. The staff were lovely - and so was the food and wine. Impressed with the swimming pool which is a good length and very well maintained.

The rooms in the new wing are big and comfortable. If you want the castle experience the maybe pay more for the historic wing, otherwise don't bother. Sensational post-modern pool combined with fine bar and dining room for overall good experience in this fairly remote location. Hospitable staff. But really the food was disappointing.

We loved this Pousada, the setting is fabulous the quiet and tranquillity just amazing and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The perfect blend of old and new where the building has been transformed from a ruin to a very useable building.
