"Views are Spectacular" as other reviewers have said. We stayed here on the last night of our 3 week vacation. It was great. We enjoyed drinks on the out door patio overlooking the valley and sea. We were given corner rooms, so had spectacular views in 2 directions. The rooms are large, the hallways are large. This place gives a... More

stayed one night here, place is in an amazing old building with views to die for. They could make so much more of it than they do, the place has no atmosphere. The waitress serving our Drinks was miserable and not very friendly. Mario was great and helped us carry our cases all the way up to the Hotels main... More

This was our second Pousada so we had expectations of a high level of service (which we got). Mario, did everything at the hotel (waiter, bar, breakfast) and was a fountain of knowledge for our time in Setubal. We spent 2 days in Setubal which was perfect. Park Natural da Arrabida is worth the drive. PRAIA DA FIGUEIRINHA is the... More

It's a great historic hotel, the hotel, the stuff and the view were amazing. We stayed for one night and enjoyed the park, the restaurants and the quiet of the hotel. The view is mesmerizing Rooms luck a bit in decor but in all a charming spot for a couple

The photo of the Pousada made a wonderful impression but the reality was different. From the town there was a long an uninteresting drive to the lower entrance of this historic fort pousada. The exterior of this entrance/car park was unkempt & a lot could be done to improve the appearance. There was a long cobbled walkway and steps which... More

As long as you can lug your cases uphill over cobbles for 200 metres, this is a fabulous place. Our room overlooked the bay and, whilst relatively small, very comfortable.The restaurant has a small menu but all the food seemed very good. Charming staff and friendly atmosphere overall.

This pousada was the fourth we had visited in our recetn tour of Portugal. It showed the same very high standards as the others in this group: attractive and imaginatively-decorated rooms with wonderful view over the bay, good food, and friendly and helpful staff. All accommodated in a beautiful building.It's true that the steps are steep but the view makes... More

I had read that the steps were terrible and that you had to haul your own luggage so our travel agent (there were 13 of us and none below 62) pre-arranged for our luggage to be brought up. The rooms were fine and the view stupendous. However the location of the hotel in an industrial town doesn't allow for sightseeing... More
