The view from all the rooms are to the ocean. The whole palace and garden all around it has a very uniquely calming and relaxing atmosphere. I loved it. Rooms are very comfy, clean, well-equipped. They have a wellness area with pools(indoor and outdoor either). Staff is nice and smiling.

Stayed for 3 nights, lovely rooms, wonderful pool, beautiful hotel and surroundings. Staff attentive and friendly, breakfast plentiful, wide range of dishes. Only complaint dinner - very restrictive menu - no asparagus on evenings - food served luke warm. Did complain on second evening and had one starter and main course deducted from bill.

I stayed at Pousada de Estói for 2 nights (a weekend), mid April 2015, room 117. There was no particular reason to choose this Pousada. I had meant to stay at a Pousada for quite sometime, since they went from public to private management, some years ago (I stayed at a few when the Pousadas de Portugal brand was 100%... More

This is an elegant, expensive place. The reception area and common rooms, which are very nice, are in a former palace, while the guest rooms are in a wing that has been added. We were pleased with our room. The furnishing was simple and tasteful, the mattress was firm, and the bathroom was excellent. We had a lot of room,... More

Have always wanted to stay in a Pousada after having tried several Paradors in Spain. Although the older parts of this palace are stunning and well worth visiting- the modern accommodation block leaves a lot to be desired. It is not in keeping with the rest of the architecture and fails to unite old and new. The finishings of the... More

Overall, we had a wonderful experience at this converted palace on a 3 night stay recently. The service is generally top class, the room (we chose a superior) was very comfortable and all the front desk staff were informative and helpful. We did have two small issues: The bar staff doubled in the restaurant and they could be hard to... More

We recently enjoyed a four night stay at this Pousada. The public rooms are beautiful and a lovely place to enjoy an after dinner drink. The gardens are stunning. We stayed in a Superior room and were pleased with the terrace, the view, the size and comfort of the bed. We enjoyed trips into Faro on the bus (check the... More

We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago for 1 night. We found it to be a great experience. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Check in was very efficient and when we were shown to our room (which was in the new part of the building) it was a definite "wow". We had a suite... More

The Pousada really is in the small town of Estoi, 10km away from Faro. It is basically a renovated small Palace plus a modern addition of a pretty large hotel. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished with big baths. They lack enough power outlets, which todays traveller needs for rechareging his/her devices. The Wifi is free and fast enough. But... More
