St. Patrick's Day was a Friday so we decided to get away for a long weekend with some sunshine. At that time of the year there are limited direct departures to the sun from Ireland so we chose Faro.
I follow pousadasdeportugal on Instagram
so knew there were some beautiful properties to choose from - Palacio de Estoi was only 12 km from faro and looked fab so we went with it. Landed in faro picked up the car and were at our hotel in under an hour! Checked in by the friendly Luis given all the necessary details and shown to our room in quick time, this just kept getting better.
The palacio was amazing modern rooms with great bathrooms, great outdoor pool terrace area, spa indoor pool & small gym and the original part of the hotel sympathetically restored for all to admire and use with beautiful gardens.
From Luis at reception to everyone else in the restaurant bar area we had excellent friendly service.
Have to say something negative ok - it would be nice to have the facility to make a cup of coffee / tea in our room and maybe have iron/ iron board stuck away in the wardrobe just in case but I can enjoy a holiday without them!
