I almost hate to share this review, for fear that when we are next in Portugal, and we will be, my review will cause the hotel to be full. On second thought, we'll make our reservations well ahead.
Where to begin? The setting is about as romantic and lovely as can be. The grounds are huge with a pool as grand as any we have seen in years. The first thing that comes to mind is: Why is this place not world famous? Everything from the arrival experience to the amazing room with great view, to the best hotel breakfast ever, with fresh squeezed juices and nice choices. We sometimes find really grand places with an attitude of superiority to match, but this was far from it. The people are genuinely friendly, elegant but unpretentious. The price, which I didn't know until checkout, was jaw- dropping reasonable. My only regret was that we hadn't budgeted one night to stay here. We'll not make that mistake next time.It is a couple of hours drive from Lisbon, nearly on the border of Spain, but well worth an couple of days' excursion.
