Great hotel, in a great location. The architecture is really impressive, and the old building lovely. Welcome was quite cold, but very ok. Room a bit far away, but just great. Huge, comfy, modern, among the best I've been into!! Gardens and swimming pool are wonderfull, and the view is astonishing. Only BIG draw back is the restaurant, with no... More

The Pousada Palacio de Estoi is situated just off the E1/A22 motorway, a fair distance from Faro centre, and a twenty minute drive from Faro Airport (ask for map for airport at hotel desk). Excellent rooms in the new extension, very comfortable beds. The beautifully renovated public rooms are located in the old Palacio. Stylish bar and restaurant. Nicely landscaped... More

Beautiful building which is part of the National "pousadas" network of historical buildings used as hotels. Wonderful views and good food (like in most places in Portugal). Short drive to Faro and Vale do Lobo/Quinta do Lago Highly recommended.

Our room at Pousada Palacio de Estoi was very big and modern, with a good shower and crisp white sheets. We spent quite a bit of time exploring the grounds and the old part of the hotel.

Wonderfully restored estate on beautifully landscaped estate. Hotel guest quarters are modern new construction, with large rooms and all modern conveniences. Lobby , restaurants, and common areas are restored . Breakfast was a delight in an absolutely perfect setting! Hotel is near Roman ruins and short walking distance to Village of Estoi.

We found the staff very helpful and friendly and able to sort problems we encountered for our flight home. The pool is stunning and well worth taking a dip before a late breakfast, where everything was laid out very well and thoroughly enjoyed our view on a fine November morning. The setting is above the town of Estoi and looks... More

While the hotel is worth the money, the restaurant is not only horrible, by the workers are seemingly on the take. The waitress suggested the most expensive bottle of wine - at 155 euros - and when I appeared shocked, she intimated shock at the price. Strike 1. We ordered an appetizer, horrible, and soup, even worse although only my... More
