2 adults + 2 kids, we stayed in a superior suite and we had a great surprise on arrival: a fireplace in the room with two sides, one facing the room and the other the living room. there was a mezzanine for the kids with a big bed, it was a little cold on arrival and it was hard to get the mezzanine warm. the bedroom on the other side was really cosy with the heated floor (also in the bathroom). the room had also a big bath, decorated with white stones and candles. on arrival with had a fruit basket and a bottle of wine, produced in the herdade.
the hotel has a big common living room, immense white sofas loaded with comfortable pillows in front of a big fireplace. candles make the ambience so cosy (it was cold and ugly outside). the food is too good to believe: a chef cooks a 3 course (30eur) or 5 course dinner, that is absolutely gourmet and great (gourmet the Alentejo style does not mean hunger!). breakfast is fantastic. just ask for anything and they will do it: service is as good as it can be, all staff is ultra nice and will do the impossible to make your wishes come true.
the jacuzzi is fine, the steam bath was strange (not really hot and so much steam you could not see your own hands!). activities: horse riding, a jeep trip around the herdade incl. a visit to the vinery, the kids had a cookie workshop with the chef, motor4. all the excitement you need for 2 or 3 days stay.
in the summer the outdoor swimming-pool has a fantastic setting and must feel great.
a great place to come back to in the summer. it's a little high priced, though: the food is ok, but the rooms are not cheap.
