We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 years old boy. We used it as a base to explore the region (Evora, Elvas, Vila Viçosa, ...) Staff was very friendly. The beds were beautiful but a bit small. The castle tower was incredible!

We had a stunning view over the town and were woken each morning by fabulous sunrises.
Our room was spacious and was very well appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful and the pool area was clean and inviting, with more of those stunning views.
We found the town very pleasant and smart, with lots of places to stop for a coffee and watch the world go by.
The food at the Pousada was the average Pousada menu, and like most of the other residents we chose to eat a few steps away on the second evening.
We would return to this Pousada for sure

We stayed at the Pousada de Estremoz for a business trip. The hotel is beautiful! The room was very spacious and the bed was bigger than I usually experience in Europe. The view from the window was of the pool and part of the town of Estremoz. The bathroom is a bit on the small side but functional. The entire property is very charming with antiques in every part of the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was very helpful. The only drawback was if you wanted a fresh breeze from outside the wind would rattle the door to the room. I had to put a magazine in the door jam so it would not sound like someone was trying to open my door at 3am. Other than that, I would book another night here, it was lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a king size bed. Some of my co-workers ended up with twin beds.

Amazing experience! Gorgeous old castle with good modern amenities put in. Lovely staff, good restaurant, lovely views. The lady at the front desk was very helpful with lots of good suggestions
Liked the city too. We only stayed one night so we didn't try of the restaurants around.

The Pousada at Estremoz is on a hill above the small town. It is large and all is decorated with beautiful period furnishings, including the rooms. It even has its own tower to climb. We booked a superior room that was on the second floor and looked over the town and the valley--beautiful. The room was very large with a separate seating area. Since we were travelling with another couple, this was a nice benefit. The price was a pleasant surprise at under $150/nite. Our experience with the restaurant was mixed, two really liked their choice and two not so much. The staff was charming. This was a great stop for us on the way to Spain and we would definitely recommend this Pousada.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are spectacular. Didn't see any of the standard rooms.

I stayed here for two nights in May 2013. This is a quality hotel in a stunning location. The hotel is located a short stroll from the centre of Estremoz. The hotel itself is packed full of antiques and character. Our room was lovely with wonderful views over the town and countryside beyond. The breakfast was wholesome with lots of choice. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent. We visited early in the season and the pool was not particularly clean and the surrounding terrace was a bit tired. Otherwise, I would strongly recommend this Pousada and I will certainly plan to visit again in the future.

While we were in Portugal on our babymoon, couldn't pass up the opportunity to stay in a real life castle! Amazing!! We had a beautiful suite, all with original furniture. My only complaint is that it was drafty! But it's a 12th century castle and we had plenty of blankets. Our room was updated with the creature comforts so it was a good blend of old and new. Highly highly recommend. Great experience!
