This hotel was booked by my company and unfortunately I only got an overnight stay. The public rooms were ornate and beautiful and the bedroom was in the new part of the building. This was modern with clean lines and spacious. The pool area was great with lovely views, although the decking was a little worn. I ate a late... More

The hotel itself is gorgeous, and by far the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in, with maids coming in to each room twice a day. The pool area is lovely, and a great size for swimming or just cooling down. We did not have a car, but were able to get a taxi to Faro for the day in 15... More

Just one night here as our flight arrived too late to make our destination. Unfortunately there was nobody on reception when we arrived tired and we had to wait 20 mins for someone to arrive. It's a beautiful old palace perched on the hillside overlooking Faro, which is 15 mins drive away. All of the accommodation is in a beautifully... More

We stayed here one night before our week stay at Four Seasons Vilamoura. The dinner on Saturday night was a buffet style and we were not very excited with it.

We stayed here for 6 nights following 4 at the Pousada in Tavira. If choosing between the two for another trip we would choose Tavira. That said, this hotel was good. An impressively restored 19th century palace with lovely grounds complete with fountains, orchard and statues. Internally there was a small chapel (original) and some stunningly decorated lounges. You need... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The luxurious Pousada de Estoi, the Estoi Palace, born out of the recovery of an old eighteenth century palace, is located in the village of Estoi only 10 km from Faro. This palace once belonged to Jose Francisco da Silva, Viscount of Estoi, and was opened in 1909. In 1987, it was purchased by the Town Hall of Faro, and in 1977, it was considered a property of Public Interest. A project by architect Goncalo Byrne, this hotel in Faro has a Health Club where you can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. In a region with great gastronomic traditions you can find the Visconde restaurant, one of the Algarvian establishments which include fish and fresh seafood. The whole menu is inspired by Portuguese cuisine and exhibits a genuine form of art for good eating. Don't miss out on the deserts from Algarve made with figs and almonds grown locally. Experiencing the Pousada de Estoi is a pleasant journey with a combination of the classical, Baroque and contemporary elements that will definitely be a memorable experience. ... more   less
