The hotel is located inside the castle walls at the top of Estremoz with stunning views of the town below and surrounding countryside. Our room was very comfortable but the bathroom was badly designed and cramped. The hotel restaurant is very good for dinner. Worth the climb to the top of the castle tower for the stunning views.

This Pousada is stunning from the outside with the white marble tower. Plenty of parking in front of the hotel and only a short walk to town. Check-in and check-out was flawless. The hallways and common areas are gorgeous with lots of antiques. There is a pool and garden with fabulous views of the town, however, the pool did not... More

We had expected top-notch luxury and standards and the splendid buffet breakfast and the sumptuous public rooms, imposing staircase and corridors with fabulous furniture and furnishings certainly achieved expectations. Once inside our "standard room" on the first floor it was OK, a decent size with a good swimming pool view - very comfortable and clean but the bathroom was "tired"... More

Enjoy a wonderful stay in a beautiful castle on the hill top of Estremoz. The castle tower is built in white (unpolished) marble. The Pousada is tastefully decorated with art and furniture. Our suite (room 122) is spacious and well equipped. From the bedroom there is a nice view. The bathroom, in beautiful light green marble, is a bit on... More

Pousadas are highly rated and represent some of the most iconic places to stay. The setting of this one is spectacular with 360deg views of the countryside. The lobby, lounge and dinning room are stylish and convey an atmosphere of grandeur. This was not quite how we viewed our room. The large bed was very comfortable. The rest of the... More

This is a nice place to stay for the experience of staying in an historic atmospheric palace but there are some things to be wary of. We upgraded to a superior room to enhance the experience .

Great place to stay. We stayed here 5 days and appreciated the great atmosphere, nice food and great surroundings. Worth a stay. Wonder out to the local market on Saturday mornings which is fun to do or visit the area which is great to visit and gives a good flavor of the traditional Portuguese scene.

Travelled to this castle with a group and we all had different rooms with different looks which was quite fun. The rooms were clean and comfortable but they have a antique feel.

Had a very nice stay at the Pousada. The staff were very friendly and parking, check-in were very easy. The hotel itself is a beautiful old castle - worth wandering around the building and grounds.

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
