This place was designed to combine modern rooms (all with views to the south- maybe lowest floor has no view) with a historic rokoko palace (bar, restaurant) - if you prefer to stay in historic walls I'd recommend you e.g. Pousada Viseu in the North! We stayed here already last year (2013) and enjoyed the excellent quality of the beds... More

We're just back from the Pousada de Faro Palace Hotel. What can I say? Just that this was one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed at. If you're looking for a hotel that's close to the party go to the west of Algarve. This is not for those of you who are looking for a booze fuelled 18-30... More

€225 for 3 nights B&B in a hotel of this standard is exceptional value. The rooms are large and quiet with fabulous views, the public areas have been restored superbly and the breakfast is great. But the dining room has been sited at the back of the hotel and has no view at all which might be why few people... More

Just returned from a 5 day stay and had a wonderful time. We were greeted from the taxi by the friendly Receptionist and then by the Hotel Manager. Great first impressions. As we arrived early, our room wasn't ready so had drinks on the terrace enjoying the amazing views until check in. There was slight confusion on room allocation which... More

Awesome design (both inside and outside) with a perfect mix of old and new architecture. Our large bedroom came with a huge bed, a wide and very private glass balcony with outstanding views (over the main gardens and pool area to the west and orange grove to the south) and comfortable armchairs + a large table. Great bathroom with efficient... More

This pousada, located in the 18th century rococo Palacio de Estoi, is located about 10km. from downtown Faro and is an ideal base for exploring the Algarve. Much of the old palace, including its spectacular patios and grounds has been restored and now houses the bar, restaurant and lobby. The modern, fully decked out rooms are attached to the original...

Bused in from Sevilla and only had a couple days in the Algarve. The Estoi Palace was located well allowing us to explore the area. The hotel was exceptional. A stunning building and surrounding grounds with many nooks to hangout and relax. The supper there the first night was superb so we ate there the second night and were not... More

We arrived on a monday, the check-in took half an hour with other guests waiting. The corridor to our room, 207, was long and dark. The room was very good, light and spacious. The balcony though was a dissappointment. It was small, with large brick walls, facing towards west, althougt it could have been built facing south. The staff was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The luxurious Pousada de Estoi, the Estoi Palace, born out of the recovery of an old eighteenth century palace, is located in the village of Estoi only 10 km from Faro. This palace once belonged to Jose Francisco da Silva, Viscount of Estoi, and was opened in 1909. In 1987, it was purchased by the Town Hall of Faro, and in 1977, it was considered a property of Public Interest. A project by architect Goncalo Byrne, this hotel in Faro has a Health Club where you can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. In a region with great gastronomic traditions you can find the Visconde restaurant, one of the Algarvian establishments which include fish and fresh seafood. The whole menu is inspired by Portuguese cuisine and exhibits a genuine form of art for good eating. Don't miss out on the deserts from Algarve made with figs and almonds grown locally. Experiencing the Pousada de Estoi is a pleasant journey with a combination of the classical, Baroque and contemporary elements that will definitely be a memorable experience. ... more   less
