This is a 19th century extravaganza to which has been added a wing of modern rooms. The original building is quite pretty and the view from the public areas including the breakfast terrace is lovely, what with the orange groves, the gentle hills and the sea in the distance. The rooms are modern and devoid of charm but quiet,clean, spacious... More

We had a fantastic week staying at the Pousada in Estoi. Everything was Top, the 18th century Rokoko Palace was great with a very smart newbuilt extension for rooms and pool area.

We just completed a short 3night trip covering the southern coast of Portugal. We based from Estoi, Portugal which is 5 miles north of Faro. The Pousada Palace Hotel, overlooking Faro & the Atlantic Ocean has a lovely outdoor restaurant serving excellent cuisine. The various public areas housed a fine collection of antique furniture. The hotel rooms wing is a... More

This place is full of charm, the old Palace has been restored with new bedrooms added which are very modern and luxurious. Everything here is stunning. Nothing not to like, a real treat to stay here, wish it could have been longer.

Just returned from a lovely 3-night stay and we have no regrets choosing this pink palace as our lodging while exploring the Algarve. Estoi, where the hotel is located, is a small little Portuguese village about a 15-20 min. drive from Faro airport. The Palace has much more character than the overrun, touristy resort area of Vilamoura (the beaches of... More

A nice castle a little bit away from Faro but a 15 minutes cab will take you there for about 20 euro. The palace is very beautiful renovated and most of the staff keeps rather high standard. Everyone is at least very helpful. The pool is great and the restaurant is well worth a visit. If you are looking for... More

This is an excellent hotel on hillside overlooking Faro. The hotel and grounds are beautiful with much history. Rooms are large and clean. Wifi was good and free parking. Nice pool and spa. The terrace for breakfast and dinner was wonderful with awesome views. Service and food in the restaurant was very good. This was such a peaceful, relaxing trip.

We visited this property for two nights before returning home from a holiday in the Algarve. The pousada is in a lovely location at the edge of Estoi which is a traditional Portuguese village with small squares and cobbled streets. The grounds of the pousada are stunning as is much of the interior. The views from the terraces are also... More

We went here for a six day break in June 2015. Excellent facilities and very quiet. Everything five star start except the food, but that did not bother us as there are plenty of other places to eat. There is a modest front entrance and reception which belies the spectacular interior of this palace. The palace itself has huge, cool... More
