“Don't think twice ! It's ALL right !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This wonderful high standard hotel, isn't really a hotel. It is a private country farm with high quality suites geared for rural tourism, conveniently separated from the owners main house.
The whole farm is maintained in pristine condition with its typical white and yellow exterior walls and with impeccable service, suitable even for the most demanding guests.
The setting is peacefully breathtaking and you could swear you can hear the silence, whilst relaxing in the pool and watching the lazy green fields that stretch up the Serra de Ossa and down the opposite valleys.
The food and wines are excellent, traditional southern portuguese, sometimes with a twitch of Nouvelle.C. and I can assure you you will not be disappointed in this respect. Meals can be served in one of the 2 rooms suited for that purpose, both decorated with high quality materials and enough space for almost anything you think of doing there.
The suites are spacious, tastefully decorated and equipped with giant flatscreen tv's. Most have a private ground level patio, living room, bathroom and sleeping room, all with good size for more than a couple and though the standard is high, the ambience is also informal enough to make you feel at home.
The pool is set nearby the guests' suites, but far enough not to bother them with unwanted noise. It is around 20m long and big enough for the guests staying in the 8 (I think) suites which are available for visiting guests. There, you can either relax on the high quality stretchers sitting around the pool, or in the very comfortable poolhouse sofas nearby. There is also a completely separate cottage, if you are into extreme privacy.
The lady owner is an example of hospitality and kindness, matched only by the rest of her staff.
All in all, an extremely enjoyable and quiet country side weekend, with good food and in a setting to die for. Nearby attractions include a medieval convent, sightseeing spots in the Serra d'Ossa, megalithic monuments, boar hunting, field walking and the clay museum in Redondo.
Don't even think once... just go and spend some wonderful days at Agua d'Alte !

This is a excelent place to rest.
The room was tastefully decorated, very clean and with a lot of space.
For breakfast you have to go to the big house... it was just delightful... several delicacies of the Alentejo region, and home made jams and cakes...
For dinner we went to a very close restaurant... it was also great.
Hope to go back

Room Tip: Choose a room outside the big house, for privacy...

Just prior to enter the hills of "Serra D'Ossa" we find a bucolic place of ever lasting peace and serenity.
The owners, with their kindness and attention, treat's you like a family, exceeding all expectations.
Located on a region of Alentejo, making part of the "Portuguese Route of Flavors" and "Portuguese Route of Wines", it´s the perfect place to reinvigorate and regain your strength.

The owners simply don't have a clue about welcoming guests.Be very carefull after 12:30 pm (check out time) they simply put you OUT from the facilities....

The treatment given to customers was a total shame.

I loved my staying in Água d'Alte. This weekend was a birthday present, and I must confess I was not that excited about it but, I must admit, it was way behind my expectations. It's a must see, it's a must stay. Victor and Alex are fantastic hosts. The place is very, very nice, and the quietness is absorbing. I will absolutely recommend a visit to Água d'Alte.
