Most folks don't seem to go beyond Evora when visiting from Lisbon. That's a shame, as a few yards down the road is the small, charming, fortressed town of Estremoz, with narrow, bricked streets that makes your GPS becomes directionally challenged. The main attraction is the Pousada de Estremoz (Rainha Santa Isabel) hotel, as it is a converted mansion made... More

Some reviewers here complain about the non-renovated rooms in this Pousada - true is that Government sold the Pousadas 2003 to Pestana Hoteis Group and it's also true that money for investments are limited since crisis has started in 2008 esp. in Portugal. Many companies are sold to Angolian and Chinese investors who currently wait before they invest again.... YES... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 years old boy. We used it as a base to explore the region (Evora, Elvas, Vila Viçosa, ...) Staff was very friendly. The beds were beautiful but a bit small. The castle tower was incredible!

We had a stunning view over the town and were woken each morning by fabulous sunrises. Our room was spacious and was very well appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful and the pool area was clean and inviting, with more of those stunning views. We found the town very pleasant and smart, with lots of places to stop for... More

We stayed at the Pousada de Estremoz for a business trip. The hotel is beautiful! The room was very spacious and the bed was bigger than I usually experience in Europe. The view from the window was of the pool and part of the town of Estremoz. The bathroom is a bit on the small side but functional. The entire... More

The Pousada at Estremoz is on a hill above the small town. It is large and all is decorated with beautiful period furnishings, including the rooms. It even has its own tower to climb. We booked a superior room that was on the second floor and looked over the town and the valley--beautiful. The room was very large with a... More

I stayed here for two nights in May 2013. This is a quality hotel in a stunning location. The hotel is located a short stroll from the centre of Estremoz. The hotel itself is packed full of antiques and character. Our room was lovely with wonderful views over the town and countryside beyond. The breakfast was wholesome with lots of... More

While we were in Portugal on our babymoon, couldn't pass up the opportunity to stay in a real life castle! Amazing!! We had a beautiful suite, all with original furniture. My only complaint is that it was drafty! But it's a 12th century castle and we had plenty of blankets. Our room was updated with the creature comforts so it... More

Our room was very... More
