Staying in this Pousadas was the way we expected it. Quiet location, nice palace, clean and spacious rooms, good privacy in the room and balcony. The staff was very kind and a relaxed and nice feeling brought over. The bed 2m wide and a good matras. The breakfast ok. The restaurant served a fine quality of food. We had dinner twice and it was superb. The service excellent. The wine also. This is a restaurant where we think back of, this team knows what it is about. Good food, good wine, relaxed service, no stress!
The outside swimming pool is ok, too cold in January, but the inside pool is too small, more like a large bathtub.
Location makes the needs of a taxi transport to Faro. There are some busses but not on a regular base.
When we travel to Faro again we will stay again in this Pousada.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The luxurious Pousada de Estoi, the Estoi Palace, born out of the recovery of an old eighteenth century palace, is located in the village of Estoi only 10 km from Faro. This palace once belonged to Jose Francisco da Silva, Viscount of Estoi, and was opened in 1909. In 1987, it was purchased by the Town Hall of Faro, and in 1977, it was considered a property of Public Interest. A project by architect Goncalo Byrne, this hotel in Faro has a Health Club where you can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. In a region with great gastronomic traditions you can find the Visconde restaurant, one of the Algarvian establishments which include fish and fresh seafood. The whole menu is inspired by Portuguese cuisine and exhibits a genuine form of art for good eating. Don't miss out on the deserts from Algarve made with figs and almonds grown locally. Experiencing the Pousada de Estoi is a pleasant journey with a combination of the classical, Baroque and contemporary elements that will definitely be a memorable experience. ... more less
