For our honeymoon we choose to stay 2 nights at the this Monastery, because it was the most luxury & pretty of the Pousadas of Portugal. It is a must see or stay, but there are better Pousadas in the program (Vila Viçosa is one). Don't expect a cosy place, remember it's an old castle with great design improvements but a lot cold and impersonal. The room was ok, not amazing, and besides the AC noise the bed gave us a the comfort we were looking, as a young couple. But we expected a lot more. (the free champagne bottle was a nice try)
There are only 2 real negative points in the overall:
- WIFI - I still don't understand why hotels charge for Internet. Your biz is not selling online time. For once someone just please tell them that free wifi, in our days, is mandatory!
- 3am roosters - In our second night, some nearby roosters started a ceaseless off-tone singing contest until the time we cheeked-out, around 11am. It must be a world record!
Been there, done that, got a t-shirt!
