Just finished a 2 week holidays trough Spain and Portugal, staying at 5 of the top hotels.
The Pestana Palace was my favorite.
Large, well appointed grounds, beautiful room ( asked for a view to the garden).
The interior of the Palace is awesome, they even have a chapel.
The restaurant is exceptional. A big thank you to Nuno, he was genuinely friendly and helpful. Staying at this hotel and not eating would be a mistake.
Reception staff were beyond brilliant, we even made a booking error which they corrected with-in minutes. The welcome was very warm and perfect. ALL contribute to our stay being a wonderfull experience. I have to make however a point of how good is Luiza, Rui, Antonio, Petro and Joaquim.
I will get back to this hotel!
