“Wonderful, always-remember-it place”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed here in October 2012 and I am writing with a delay to say it was one of the most wonderful places I've stayed at ever (and I've stayed at some nice ones). Beautiful service, wonderful grounds, incredibly designed suites, and just great design expressed in every bit of the place (I'll just mention the bathtub and the note they give you with a map of stars for that evening). Small, private, really well thought out. Had a wine tour, swam in the decadent pool, lounged in the sunshine, ate very well. It was by far the highlight of our trip across Portugal. We only stayed one night, but I've genuinely recommended the place to at least a dozen friends since. Enjoy it, as a treat with your other half or by yourself as a getaway.

Room Tip: Take a Sky Suite, looking out toward the lake if possible...

I've recently stayed 3 nights in L'AND Vineyards. The hotel grounds and surroundings are lovely, well kept, full of flowers, grapes, olive and lemon trees. There is a pond close by with a lot of frogs which make a lot of lovely noise in the evening :) The pool is big and quite deep (1,80m). It was never crowded, plenty of space. We've booked a sky suite which is very specious and comfortable. There is a small patio with a plunge pool - but we never used it at it takes almost 3 hours to fill it up and it was actually leaking so it was loosing water fast. We had beautiful weather so we were not too upset about that. There is a huge bathroom area with massive bathtub, separate shower and toilet. The bedroom was lovely with rooftop window and big, super kingsize bed.

We were absolutely blown away by the food in a restaurant. Miguel Laffan who is a head chef there is a very talented cook! First night we had a special 5 course menu with matching wines - that was only a special evening and they were only serving that menu. We paid 55 euro per person (including 6 glasses of amazing wine). Food was just delicious, beautifully served. We went there again on Sunday evening and we tried meny a'la carte. Again superbe!

The only think I found a little bit below my expectation is service. There is not enough staff. During a day there was only one waiter (very hard working one!) running all the time between a restaurant (on 1st floor) and the pool. It feels like there is not enough staff around, sometimes it was really confusing when we wanted to order a glass of wine and each time we had to go and order it at the reception.

Overall fantastic, experience. If you're staying longer rent a car and you can visit villages nearby Montemor-o-novo (3km) and Evora (30km).

L'And Vineyards is located 100km from Lisbon Airport (if you choose to take motorway - there is a toll charge of approx. 5-8 euro)

Set in the countryside with olivetrees, wine yards and beautiful views all over. Great top notch place with wonderful rooms and great architecture. The food was surpricingly good- world class and the best I have had in Portugal. Time for Michelin to make a visit!!!

Every thing was well organized and the service was very good.

The Romantic Package, with a SPA treatment for the couple and a Gourmet Experience Dinnernwas very good. The wines in the Degustation Menu should be better choosed

Great wine, food and Spa; great stars above your bead! This Place is so special that you'll feel like George Clooney and Gwyneth Paltrow! Ask for a Sky Suite, And you'll have the Creme de la creme of taste and minimalist luxury. The locally produced reds and whites deserve a trip in them selves, helped by a 5***** gourmet kitchen and friendly staff. Please keep the track: we definitely want to came back to worship this sanctuary of Life And Alentejo!

Beautiful hotel in a green haven. It is perfect for a lazy escape as it is in a village outside lisbon with not much to do. The pools are both lovely, the staff are amazing, the food is well priced and taste good. The Jaccuzi wasn not working during our visit, so that was a bit disappointing as every room has a private one located in front. The fireplace is a brilliant idea.
The reception area, restaurant and public areas are well kept. The spa is AMAZING, we had a couple of treatment that were perfect. Thanks to Maria & Alexandra.
The downside is we had to change rooms as bathroom in the 1st one had a bad sewer smell.

Great for fitness junkies like myself. Free use of the bikes and the hills will test your endurance. tennis court on site and a jog around the grounds of the hotel taking in the scenery is lovely.

Will definitely visit again.
About an hour drive from lisbon airport, so not a cheap taxi ride.

Stayed 19th-24th April 13, with partner in a sky suite and it was utterly fantastic. We dined in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and the food is well thought out and ever-changing. Had various spa treatments, we had the same therapists for every treatment which was lovely. Also used the spa facilities (sauna and indoor pool) they are free and fab. Reception also booked us into a few local restaurants all of which were great, and visited evora for a lovely local day trip. You do need a car though.

Room Tip: Go for a sky suite! We were in 6 and it was perfect
