A very unique hotel in Alentejo. A must with a great restaurant, history is all over the place and the rooms are for kings or queens. I have loved so much!!! The real history vibes all over the place and the swimming pool with the sound of bucolic birds was lovely. Great great great!!!

Excellent hotel in a quiet countryside region of Portugal. Staff and facilities are good, and our room, in the more recent addition to the actual historic building, was very spacious. The food and service in the restaurant were both first class, as was the wine selection! Bar area also spectacular and plenty of comfy sofas upon which to lounge! Pool... More

We visit Flor da Rosa every year and absolutely love this magical and historical Monastery in the quiet Alentejo. The rooms are very comfortable and the food was excellent. Surrounding towns and villages are interesting and there is now readily-available information about walks in the area. This Pousada is a must-visit in Portugal!

The night before we arrived at Crato we stayed at the Pousada of Marvao. Initially I wanted to skip Crato because it seemed too close to Marvao and we didn't have all that much time left before going back to Lisbon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada do Crato is localized right in Alentejo, and installed in the old Santa Maria de Flor da Rosa Monastery. D. Alvaro Goncalves Pereira, Grand Prior to the Hospital and also the father of D. Nuno Alvares Pereira, had the building erected in the fourteenth century. In this important gothic national monument, you feel the spirits of medieval times in every corner taking us back to the time of the building of a new nation. This luxury hotel in Crato is an example of the recovery of a Historic building into modern times without losing the monastic feel, calm and peaceful. Outside there is a pool with a sun terrace which allows their guests a refreshing and clam moment to reenergize whilst listening to the sounds of the Alentejo plains. The richness of the Alentejo cuisine cannot be missed, in the Pousada's restaurant where pezinhos de coentrada (a pork dish with coriander) Coentrada de Cacao (dogfish and coriander) or Ensopado de Borrego (lamb stew) are their highlights. These dishes accompanied by a beautiful wine of the Alentejo region, are the true pleasures of life. ... more   less
