The place Is beautiful and peaceful in the middle of nature. staff is kind and taking Good care of you, the life slow down there, the facilities are great, rooms Are well arranged, confortable and cosy, I staid in the new building which is beautiful.
Nice Resort in Nature - off the track. The garden and atmosphere were great. Unfortunately the value for money ratio was the worst in our whole Portugal vacation. 140€ for a double room, dinner was 32€ (food was good but nothing special and also not a lot). We had a room with a panorama of the parking lot which is a pity if you have beautiful nature all around you. The staff was nice but didn’t pay much attention so I was annoyed by paying that much money. The WiFi was just available in the common area. They have a yoga room but this was cleaned in the morning at 9:00 so that it wasn’t possible to perform yoga before breakfast. If you don’t care about money it might be a perfect place to relax. All in all I’d say it has a spirit of a cool hostel but you pay for a 4-5 star hotel.
We stayed for only one night and it was a last minute decision, but we're glad we went to Herdade da Matinha, as we had a wonderful stay. We stayed in one of the Superior Deluxe suites and it is amazing. There's a "private" pool for only those 8 bedrooms, but you can also access the common pool. We also had dinner and breakfast, which were both wonderful as well. The only downside in our opinion is the access road to the Herdade, which is not tarmaced since it belongs to the Rota Vicentina (prompt explanation we had at the reception). The staff is also very nice, and the welcome drink (non-alcoholic) was very good.
Ican only echo Costaporto's review. Reading all the reviews led us to book this place despite the nightly rate that was quite higher than what we usually plan . We slept in the container's building and although we actually liked the decoration, the soundproofing was quite bad with the other rooms and the main corridor. There are no attention to details, it's a disguised hostel with boutique hotels rates and the service in nonexistent. The restaurant serves a unique menu at an outrageous price per person and we all almost fell asleep as the service was so uncoordinated and slow. Since it is lost in the middle of the countryside, eating out takes quite a bit of time but after the first night experience we did go out every single time. The pool treatment was exaggerated, the smell was so strong and the kids had eyed burning issues from the quantity of product they were adding. I would not recommend this place, not at this rate.…
This place looks like a hostel in the middle of nowhere with some containers pretending to be posh. No wifi or network connection and crazy expensive prices for a lousy accommodation. The place is ran by kids with no experience whatsoever. Looks lie they are on summer holidays. The place is dirty and was not well renovated with some weird paintings pretending to look like art. The food is a disaster. A guy cutting grass all day with terrible noise and kids in the pool with dippers shouting. Terrible experience. Place to avoid if you're looking to have some rest in a quality environment.
