We spent one night in Monte do Giestal. We chose the location because of the convenient distance form the coast, and Setubal peninsula. It is situated outside the town, so the location is private and quiet. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and as a part of the property there is a cork oak grove where we had our morning walk. The grounds are nicely landscaped and there is private parking close the the accommodation. Our Villa was spacious and beautifuly designed.The kitchen was well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. WiFi worked fine.We had breakfast in the main building. The selection of the food was excellent. All employees we met were friendly and helpful. We didn't have time to use the spa, but we hope for another stay in this great place. Definitely recommend!

Everything about the stay was perfect!! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was also great (T1 Standard), the kitchen is very well equipped, the house has air conditioning as well as a fireplace. Even tho all the houses have a kitchen you also have a really good breakfast included, and they also have a restaurant to partner with that serves both lunch's and dinner's and deliver it to your apartment. The spa is also really good. Disclaimer: The wifi is not great, although they have invested a lot in making it better, the telco companies simply don't have good service or wifi in those areas, not their fault, on the other hand its great to disconect from the world a bit and relax.

We had a great stay at Monte Do Giestal! It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside. The services are great: nice breakfast, a poolbar and the possibility to order your evening meal to be delivered at your house (so we could enjoy it at our terrace :--)). The staff was very friendly and accessible, they were present at lot during the day and always reachable through Whatsapp, which was very convenient. The house was really nice and spacious. The bathroom can use an update, but everything was very clean. Nice location for kids, with the 2 pools, tennis court, little playground and nice walk through the cork trees!

Stayed here for a weekend and had one of the most fantastic experiences so far on a weekend escape. An amazing space (houses-well equiped, well decorated, pristine) and landscape where we have the freedom to do nice walks and/or cycling through the estate and discover some curiosities like some friendly donkeys, sheeps or an ancient tree. The SPA and the fantastic indoor pool are delightfull. And the cherry on top of the cake: the staff! Very well educated, attentious, competent and most important, friendly. These are people that care about you...and that is priceless!

Everything.. but above all the confort that was to just order food from the restaurant and have it delivered on our room. It makes everything so much easier and better. Breakfast as also this option that we valued a lot. Hiking around the area was also very nice and quiet. The pool could perhaps be bigger but its just a very small detail among so many wonderful things about this place

We had a brilliant stay. Staff is very attentive and chalets well-equipped. Nice walks on the estate. Would do it again. The indoor pool could be a tad warmer but otherwise, great too. The space is great for a family of 3-4 people.

It was an amazing experience as we went as part of a New Years Eve group with some friends. The staff was incredibly caring and always ready to help on the moment. I would highly recommend people to go as I'll be going back myself. They collect the garbage your house, you have access to the spa and you can choose to have breakfast on the house delivered that morning. Lovely!

We spent two nights as a family with our pet and we had an amazing experience at Monte Giestal. The staff/team was very nice, fresh fruit juice and warm croissants for breakfast. Indoor warm pool, sauna, etc. Most beautiful view to watch nature, sunrise/sunset. We could order dinner from local restaurante that was delicious without leaving the villa. Each villa has complete kitchen and fireplace (+ AC) which felt like home and perfect for cold winter days. Perfect for a nice long walk in the many hectars/kms the hotel has. We will return very soon and recommend it. Thank you Monte Giestal.

As soon as I arrived at this place I felt like I was on the set of the TV series Wild at Heart. It’s off the beaten track and perfect if you want somewhere peaceful and tranquil to relax and re-charge. There is a free car park available and the scenery before you even arrive as well as around the complex itself is stunning. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly speaking good English, we arrived just in time to order food from a local restaurant that the complex has a deal with; they don’t have their own restaurant on site for food but do offer breakfast. They also have a bar area offering decent drinks and very good outdoor seating. We were shown to our house which was amazing again! Very large with fully equipped kitchen area for self catering. There is free Wi-fi, decent satellite tv and the house itself is very comfortable. There is an outdoor pool on the complex as well as spa and treatment facilities, they also offer bike hire which would be a decent way to see the surroundings which I may have mentioned are stunning. You really should visit the massive cork tree about 100 meters from reception which is also their logo. Based on this experience I would happily spend the rest of my life here and certainly visit again. Highly recommended!
