We hugely enjoyed our three nights in a little cottage at Agua d’Alte. The rooms were charming with simple, but elegant decoration - and it was great to have our own space. The pool was lovely and the never too crowded given the property has only a small number of rooms. We ate in every evening and although the menu is very basic, it was very tasty. A great base to explore the surrounding countryside before retreating to the pool when the weather gets too hot!
This is the lowest rate I’ve ever used. I spent 3 nights here with my husband. The location and conditions of Água d’Alte are very good but it seems there is no one running the business. D. Rosa does an amazing job but there’s only so much one person can do. The best pro was the massage in the spa area. The biggest cons were the almost inexistent internet connection and the lack of attention to the client/shortage of staff (this is peak season and there was basically no one at the reception desk, imagine the rest of the hotel). If you want a snack or light meal at lunch time (in a specific time frame) you have to order it during the morning, so D. Rosa makes it for you. The same for a light dinner (there aren’t any “full” meals at any hour). Breakfast is barely enough and average quality. To replace online activities, there are some board games and dvds, which are stored in the reception area and breakfast room, and get locked away somewhere around 9pm (so you can’t access them and kill some time before going to bed, for example). Prices are through the roof.…
Agua d'Alte is a wonderful country lodge, very well appointed, cosy and very confortable. The suroundings are superb and you can admire them when relaxing at the gorgeous swimming pool. It is ideally located for visiting Alentejo, very close to Estremoz right at the Serra d'Ossa. The restaurant is very nice, fresh and home made food from Alentejo. All was excellent.
We found this place for a long weekend hiking trip. The place is very tastefully designed with a lounge, eating area, pool barn and beautiful gardens. Unfortunately we experienced bad weather and could not enjoy all the facilities but the location provided for a change of plan! the hotel is situated between Redondo and Estremoz, an Alantejo wine region so we decided to visit some vineyards instead!
We went during Easter to this great Country House. Three days and nights very relaxing where we had the best slipping nights I remember for long time. The house, rooms and surroundings are very well decorated. Lots of charm and cosy at same time. Extremely kind staff always there for you to help you with all your needs. We only had one meal at the house, but the breakfast is really great. Mrs Rosa and Maria João are extremely kind . We expect to comeback near summer with all family.
