Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

The Place is wonderfull: nordic arquitecture with a southern feel, big and beautifull pool, very good service and attention from all staff.

If you want to visit Alentejo with all the luxury you expect to find in a 5* hotel, try this one. You will not regret it.

Very friendly staff with an amazing cuisine in a beautiful hotel! I strongly recommend the famous gin tonics at sunset in the terrace. During the day, enjoy the nautical antivities at Maranhao and the cool swimming pool.

Herdade da Cortesia is a wonderful hotel.
1- It much better than many 5-stars hotel's.
2- Breakfast is great in variety and quality of products.
3- A wonderful, very good and large pool, with a beautiful and typical Alentejo landscape. It is also great for those who can not swim because the pool keeps the same depth to about half its length. The bar near the pool provides nice snacks (good salads, toasts,...) and drinks. The hotel provides towels in the pool free of charge.
4- Spacious and comfortable room.
5- This should be the first point to comment - the staff is great and very helpful, always willing to help.
6- Near Sto Antonio de Alcorrego, where you can find good restaurants (like Tasca do Montinho and Taberna do Paulo).

Small things to improve:
- the wireless internet is very bad and slow...
- During breakfast the reposition of food should be done more frequently, being necessary to ask an employee for what we need. However, employees are always available to meet all requests.

Thankfully, I've been able to discover a lot of places and stay at some good hotels. But Herdade da Cortesia Hotel is something else...

Just 2 hours from Lisbon, it's a gorgeous homestead in the middle of Alentejo, where the hotel architecture just fits beautifully on the landscape. Not a single tree was destroyed during the construction of the hotel. The rooms are big enough, well decorated and amazingly cozy. The service couldn't be better/friendlier and even the restaurant that, at the beginning didn't seem to meet the hotel standards, is now preparing really tasty and good-looking meals. Breakfast is delicious and has a great variety of products prepared for you, no matter what time you wake up.

So far I couldn't find a better place to rest, to regain energies and even to date. I fell in love so hard with Herdade da Cortesia that after staying on December 2010 for the first time, I've been there two more times. And will definitely be back really soon...

Room Tip: The hotel has three ways, ask to stay in one of the ends. Rooms like 107 and 308 have great views. A...

This hotel has a lot of thing that makes ir perfect! One of those things is the fact that you don't have breakfast hour! so you don't have to wake up in a hurry because you don't want to miss breakfast. You also don't have check our hour.. so you can really enjoy your day...

The pool is just perfect, the staff is amazing... the view its just unique... the restaurant and bar are great....


the outside fire place makes it so comfortable to just be outside in the evening for a drink a chat with your friends...


to rooms are some of the best i've seen... you get free internet everywhere... you can rental a bike for a symbolic price ( KTM BIKES), horseback riding... etc etc etc...

i think that i can put this in my top 3 hotels!!!

Very nice, peaceful, beautifully decorated little hotel in the middle of Alentejo. The rooms are big and quite comfortable. It has a wonderful swimming pool. You can ride horses and go for long walks enjoying the breathtaking landscapes. Do not miss a "cruise" in the Maranhão dam by sunset. The hotel is usually used by rowing teams to prepare for competitions ( they won't bother you, as they spend their day in the dam and go to bed early). The only thing that wasn't perfect was the service at the restaurant (they managed to forget one of the dishes when there were only seven clients). They could also improve the breakfast - in Alentejo a good cheese is mandatory!

This hotel is wonderful. Spacious rooms and bathrooms, beautiful pool, great service. Although it is showing some very minor wearing out signs (the floor in our room next to the A/C was raised), the quality of the accomodation overall was superb.

Unfortunately we can't say the same about the restaurant: not only was pricey (as expected) but the quality was really poor. The pork was overcooked and the side-dishes were salty.
If you are planing to stay at this hotel do eat at Avis, much better food and price.
