Very spacious room with small garden terrace. Comfortable room in new built part of the hotel. In the "castle" itself you find the restaurant, breakfast room etc. Very beautiful gardens. Breakfast was very "rich". Friendly personnel.

Impressive from the start - doors held open for us on arrival, and our luggage whisked away. Friendly and welcoming reception. Lovely large room, wonderful beds and linens. Excellent service in the bar and the restaurant. We were spoilt throughout our short overnight stay. A perfect place for my husbands special celebratio

The common rooms - sitting, dining, gardens, are impressive as expected from the photos, but the guest rooms are in a modern wing that is no different from a regular first class hotel, we were a little disappointed in that (as most pousadas are in historic buildings including the bedrooms), though all the modern amenities and comforts are there.

We stayed at the Pousada for 3 nights and it was a total delight from start to finish. All the staff we met from the moment we arrived were efficient and courteous and if one did not quite understand what we were saying they would quickly find someone who could. The accommodation block has been very tastefully built and does... More

Again you have a historic building/environment, this one with a vast garden to which is attached a modern structure with luxurious rooms + terrace. Staff is particularly attentive and friendly.More so than anywhere. Service for dinner at the restaurant was the only unexpected disappointment but I suspect there was some kind of crisis backstage that evening. Breakfast very varied and... More

We were not staying at the hotel, but what we saw of it looked excellent. Clean, modern and old baroque. We had excellent food in the restaurant. It was late January but we sat outside on the terrace for our meal. The views are fantastic and the Palace/hotel really beautiful with a mix of old and new world extravagance. Our... More

Small 18th century baroque palace, beautifully restored, holds the public rooms. Bedrooms in the new block are large and comfortable. Pools are smart. Historic gardens are not yet fully restored, but are lovely for a stroll and have beautiful tea houses. It all looks out over the countryside to Faro and the sea - it's only 10 km from the... More
