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.

My wife and I arrived in Lisbon after dark and upon renting our car and driving 45 minutes south to Setubal getting turned around more than once, finally were able to locate this pousada ...giving much heartfelt thanks to a gentleman at a local garage who although very limited in speaking english (and my poor attempt at Portuguese) was kind...

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

The Pousada in the Forte de Sao Filipe is part of the tradition of converting castles and other sites into great - but quirky - hotels. This one is no exception. The moment you realise that you're parking at the foot of the towering walls, and then have to walk through the long sloping ramp makes even the start of... More

I stayed here whilst on business with a colleague. When the taxi driver pulled into the carpark we could not really tell where the hotel entrance was!! So there we were dragging our cases round trying to find the entrance!! When we found the entrance it was a large archway followed by a fairly steep set of wide steps, so... More

The place is just wonderful. The views are breathtaking, the historical significance of the fortress is very meaningful in European history. Staff friendly and helpful. But...rooms ungently needing refurbishment so that the price/quality ratio can mount up to what's expected of a Portuguese Pousada.
