It delivers the value it promises. Good location, excelent room, the service also great. Everything you can expect while staying in a beautiful historic building. Around, in a minute walk, some of the best restaurants of the region and a beautiful view over the vilage

We were offered a voucher to spend the night there during the cold nights of December. We arrived quite late. Once there we noticed that our room was a two single instead of King as we would like. I called reception and immediately realized that bed type information was missing by the time the reservation was done (by a third... More

Converted from a royal palace, this property is incredible and offers spectacular views of the surroundings. I stayed with my family and we enjoyed exploring the tower and the beautiful rooms. I would recommend staying here just to get a feel for this beautiful town's history.

How much fun to stay in a castle! In the off season during the week there was only one other guest therefore it was very quiet. So much fun to explore the grounds. The service was good, the food was great and the recommendation of the tomato soup was appreciated. So different, the flavour and taste was amazing. A wonderfully... More

Pousada Estremoz, Portugal (operated by Pestana). Estremoz is a very small town, and this is really IT. The building was originally part of the former castle, converted to a pousada, and beautifully furnished. As with all pousadas, each room differs from the others in size, shape, and view. Room 209 was very comfortable--long and narrow with an outdoor sitting area,... More

Converted To a hotel from a Royal palace and preserving the Castle Tower. Period furniture, tapestries with high ceilings and a grande staircase. Good buffet breakfast but dinner disappointed a little. We had a luxurious suite at a sensible price, good views from the top of the hill across the Alentego. Very helpful staff, couldn't fault them. Estramoz worth a... More

Magnificent and historic Pousada in central Portugal. The hotel is full of antiques including tapestries, paintings, chinas and furnitures which made us especially happy. The room was very comfortable. Good breakfast offered. Enjoyed the lunches in the restaurant as well as the local wines. The Bar and lounge area were very big with many sitting areas to lounge in.

Fooled by the lack of the usual signs for pousadas, we took a while to find our way to this hotel but were glad we persevered! It is a stunning building in a stunning position, filled with antique furniture and paintings. The staff we met were charming, friendly and helpful, but it seemed that in the recession probably too few... More

Stayed for one night, had a lovely, large twin room with the balcony overlooking a courtyard. The staff was helpful and charming. Ate dinner here as well and really enjoyed the meal. From here we went to the pousada in Evora and compared to Rainha Santa Isabel, it paled in comparison. This pousada was worth the money, the rooms were... More

I believe many tourists have no interest for History and have no idea who Rainha Santa Isabel was. If you are someone like that Portugal is not for you! This Pousada was the castle where the queen once lived, but it is not a museum! The rooms were renewed but with old style furniture, very chic! The restaurant has execellent... More
