Monte Dos Pensamentos
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Estremoz
Reviewed June 3, 2011

The people who run this bed and breakfast checked us in and then disappeared for the rest of the time. We were not told that breakfast was only from 9 am. We were told that they could not sell us a beverage to enjoy while sitting by their lovely pool. We were told that they did not have any information on the surrounding area. They were not interested in really being hosts. This was a big disappointment and the only one we had while in Portugal. All three of us agreed.

We stayed in this beautiful property for 2 nights and we weren't very satisfied just because we were given a room outside the house, in a small outbuilding a few steps away! Our intention was to spend sometime in a true alentejo ancient house, and what we got was a ikea-decorated modern room!! The room was huge, just like the bathroom but they were very cold (despite the good isolation, a heater and air conditioned) and just like a 21 century room! In my opinion they should never rent this room to anyone, because if you go a "monte alentejano" that's because you want to experience something different and not to stay in a room like the ones in a modern youth hostel! The beds were very comfortable and the bedsheets were very warm, and we needed it, because of the low temperature.
If we wanted to spend sometime near the fireplace and enjoying the old house, we had to walk outside in the middle of the night, with 3ºC!
Besides that, the old house looked very beautiful and well kept and the staff was nice and friendly. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast room very quiet, with very antique pieces of furniture and china.
This property is located about 2km of Estremoz, so it is good if you have a car, but the village doesn't have many places to go or eat at night, so prepare yourself.
We stayed in this "monte" with a voucher offered by friends: despite we hadn't payed, SOMEONE paid, so it didn't please us at all. For the price someone paid, maybe a room in the building worth the money.
