Some reviewers here complain about the non-renovated rooms in this Pousada - true is that Government sold the Pousadas 2003 to Pestana Hoteis Group and it's also true that money for investments are limited since crisis has started in 2008 esp. in Portugal. Many companies are sold to Angolian and Chinese investors who currently wait before they invest again.... YES...

We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 years old boy. We used it as a base to explore the region (Evora, Elvas, Vila Viçosa, ...) Staff was very friendly. The beds were beautiful but a bit small. The castle tower was incredible!

We had a stunning view over the town and were woken each morning by fabulous sunrises. Our room was spacious and was very well appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful and the pool area was clean and inviting, with more of those stunning views. We found the town very pleasant and smart, with lots of places to stop for...

We stayed at the Pousada de Estremoz for a business trip. The hotel is beautiful! The room was very spacious and the bed was bigger than I usually experience in Europe. The view from the window was of the pool and part of the town of Estremoz. The bathroom is a bit on the small side but functional. The entire...

The Pousada at Estremoz is on a hill above the small town. It is large and all is decorated with beautiful period furnishings, including the rooms. It even has its own tower to climb. We booked a superior room that was on the second floor and looked over the town and the valley--beautiful. The room was very large with a...

I stayed here for two nights in May 2013. This is a quality hotel in a stunning location. The hotel is located a short stroll from the centre of Estremoz. The hotel itself is packed full of antiques and character. Our room was lovely with wonderful views over the town and countryside beyond. The breakfast was wholesome with lots of...

While we were in Portugal on our babymoon, couldn't pass up the opportunity to stay in a real life castle! Amazing!! We had a beautiful suite, all with original furniture. My only complaint is that it was drafty! But it's a 12th century castle and we had plenty of blankets. Our room was updated with the creature comforts so it...

The drive up to this place was very impressive as we drove over a drawbridge to approach the posada.The exterior is also very beautiful and welcoming and there is very good parking right in front.The public areas are warmly furnished with many castle like antique pieces but the upper hallways are dark ,worn and need refurbishing.

The hotel soars impressively as you drive into the square where there is plenty of parking, and if you have the legs you can get up into the tower where you will be rewarded by extensive views of the Alentejo. Our room was stately, clean, beautifully furnished and cool in the 35C heat, though the air conditioning rumbled a bit....

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
