Very interesting building. Beautifull panoramic rooms with fantastic landscape in the top of the mountain. Extremely confortable room...unique bed! Good swiming pool to relax at the end of the day after the trecking or walking in the mountain. At the dinner time an extraordinary restaurant! The Serra da Estrela Mountain is atonishing.

Although the basic rooms are a bit small as other people have commented, there is no other bad thing we can say of this place. We arrived at noon and went on the 8k circular hiking route. The instructions provided by the hotel were excellent and the hike was very nice: beautiful views and a varied scenery. We had the... More

Lovely place, unfortunately it was raining so hard we couldn't see the amazing views. Rooms too small, shower was seriously too tiny. No place to put toiletries in bath. But maybe I should have booked a bigger room? Don't remember if there was a choice.Too small bed. The BEST food ever. Dinner was perfect- put yourself in the chef's hands,... More

This hotel was recommended by a travel agency and it was the worst placed I have stayed in on my trip to Portugal. When you walk into the rooms you think you are in Scandavia, not Potugal. The room had a double bed. The furniture was stark and was all light wood veneer. The bathroom was small and there was... More

A feast in Swedish and Danish design. Its on top of a mountain so its cold outside in the winter, although the inside is filled with warmth and cosyness. I wouldn't call it a spa just because they offer a sauna, pool and massage and skin treatments. In my world a spa is more than that. Having said that its... More

We were there in February 2 years ago, it's just awesome. The staff was very kind and useful, the surroundings are georgous, specially when it's snowed. When we were there everything was covered by the snow, and it was a very special moment
