I amazed this hotel has any good reports .......yes the old palace is delightful and the grounds in places are charming, the pool area is quite nice if not a little clinical..... But that is far as it goes. The furnishings in the public areas are not in keeping.......the dining room is like a canteen......and the service and food in... More

Actually this hotel is worth trying out for one night. Like most Pousadas it does add withthis interesting historical touch to the visit. However expensive compared to the service and standard in general (morte things like the sauna not working etc) .... booked a suite with a view, and got a suite but no view. But actually small things, Not... More

The Pousada de Estoi is a lovely Roccoco Palace, set in it’s own gardens in peaceful countryside away from the busy coast. The public rooms are in the Palace itself and the bedrooms in a new building. This gives the best of both worlds; a very special atmosphere combined with modern comforts in the bedrooms. We had a spacious room... More

We stayed one night here. Interesting conversion The rooms are all modern boxes. The palace have the lounge and restaurant. We were put off eating here due to service comments - which seemed true when looking fir some tea. Went to a small restaurant at the end of the street - galeria dos sentidos - excellent value. Breakfast fine. Close... More

If you are looking for a cool place to stay around Faro, Portugal, come to this hotel. Situated in a little village (Estoi) with beautiful streets and a great restaurant a minute away, the hotel itself is built into and around an old estate. Excellent rooms, beautiful common areas. Highly recommended.

The Palace is only for the restaurant and garden area, the other parts of this hotel is new and modern. The room is nice and clean, facilitated with modern furniture. There's a small balcony attached to the room but the chairs are dusty to sit down. Estoi is about 10 minutes drive from Faro, it's also a small lovely town.... More

This pousada was built in the ancient Palace of Estoi and it's construction was completed in 1909 where the family lived until 1987 after which it was bought by the Faro City Council. The main buildings and gardens are in the "Versailles" style and a modern extension has been constructed next to house for the bedroom accommodation. From the outset... More

This was our first stay in a pousda hotel and we loved the hotel and the setting. Our room was very good, size excellent, with good views. The rooms were so quiet. And clean. The gardens are good and the pool area catches the breeze when it's hot. The pool area is not overly populated and there were always sun... More

An end of summer break in the Algarve, a special offer for couples age 55+ in a converted palace away from the rowdy coastal resorts but close enough to the A22 motorway to make the whole region easily accessible by car - the prospect seemed near perfect considering the extended summer temperatures this year. I kept the destination a surprise... More
