Stayed there with my children, service, food , views were amazing. Will go back for sure when visiting Portugal. Historic building with long history, if looking for peace and quiet no better place. Loved it.

We had a delightful 2night stay visiting the town and surrounding areas. Our room was large and the view was delightful . The staff helpful and attentive.The outdoor pools is in beautiful surroundings a delightful place to waste a couple of hours. The small town is very quiet but has a market on Saturday .

This stunning hotel atop an ancient walled town was very poor at managing the huge group that we were part of. It is a most beautiful and fascinating building with loads of interesting historic details. However, just one receptionist to register 42 people didn't make us feel very welcome. Throughout our stay we felt there were insufficient staff - at... More

The Pousada de Estremoz is a beautifully restored property on top of a hill overlooking the city and the surrounding scenery, including the vineyards. The pool area is beautifully maintained and an excellent place to relax and have a drink. The restaurant is grand and elegant. The food was excellent.

We had a great one night stay here. There are beautiful art and antiques everywhere. We had one of the best gin and tonics I've ever had sitting on the comfortable sofas overlooking Estremoz. The breakfast buffet was nice with lots of pastries, yogurt, fruit, eggs, cheese, etc.

Estremoz is less visited than Evora, but definitely worth a look - a lovely, castle town set on a hill with great history. Many of the Pestana Pousadas are a bit disappointing; often they are modern blocks set in a historic site. This one has it all - a stunning residence/convent set in the castle walls above the town with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada of Estremoz is situated in a privileged place, as is the Castle Estremoz. It is an authentic museum which has a range of antic furniture, wall tapestries, iron decorative pieces and porcelain from other times. D. Dinis ordered the construction of this building for his wife the queen Santa Isabel, which has given its name to the Pousada. Placed in the old city, this was the stage of battles, love and treason. This luxury hotel in Estremoz offers from its gardens and pool, a magnificent panoramic view of Estremoz and the Alentejo plain. Guests can enjoy a glass of regional wine in the castle's spacious dining room or enjoy a game of pool in the Pousada de Estremoz' games room. Nearby activities include fishing, guided countryside treks and bicycle rides. The Pousada de Estremoz has free local parking, at 1.2 Km from the Estremoz railway station and 17.3 Km from the Evora Monte Castle. ... more   less
