A good tip: for all who want to share a double bed, it is advisable to know the the standards of this hotel in terms os size are rather short. Luckily we could change to a double room with twin beds and everything went fine. The place is very well kept, and the gardens are very beautiful. Restaurant for dinner... More

After a 4 day stay it was hard to depart this beautiful place. Everything was perfect, the setting, the building, the room, the personnel, the garden, the swimming pool and the breakfast. One feels like an appreciated guest and the staff was not just professionally friendly but really interested.

The rooms are large, the bathrooms are modern and large, and the linens are lovely. The staff could not be more accommodating. Have a light supper off the bar menu in the patio. The staff will make certain that everything is perfect for you. Breakfast is included in the rather substantial fee, but it is generous and lavish. A little... More

We stayed here for one night whilst touring Northern Portugal and wish we had booked more. The hotel is stunning, the building steeped in history and restored lovingly keeping the original feel of the place. We had a room with great views of the town below. Dinner was lovely with real traditional food. Breakfast was one of the best we... More

Booked this Pousada through Pousadas de Portugal, their own website. It was the best price available online and if you are planning on staying in more than 1 Pousada while in Portugal booking through their own website is not only the lowest price but there are also many special offers and discounts. For one night, 3rd May 2015 the price... More

We stayed in six cities over two weeks which meant six different modern and historic hotels. This was by far our favorite hotel. While a bit difficult to find, it gives great views of the city and has many things going for it. In order we loved: 1. The hotel itself. It's historic and used to be a convent. That... More

The Restaurant at the Pousada of Santa Marinha in Guimaraes, Portugal is worth a journey. The ambiance of the 12th century monastery, the charm of the staff, the creative menu, and the finely prepared food will overcome the hurdles of your journey to get here. Rather than fighting the hurdles, go to the taxi stand in Guimaraes and take a... More

This pousada is a beautiful setting for a stay in Guimaraes. The internal of the former monastry is astonishing beautiful with excellent rooms and walking through the hotel makes you thinking to walk in your own castle. Only negative point is the walk to the city-centre, but again easy when you go back with a taxi.

Afonso Henriques - first king of Portugal) to the canons of Saint Augustin order (1154).This Pousada has superb gardens, a magnificent stone staircase and an artificial lake can also be found among the tree. is in fact an...

On a trip around Portugal we were fortunate to discover this beautiful Pousada. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. A real pleasure to have been able to stay here. The dinning experience and food was consistent with the enjoyable stay.
