I guess the title says it all! Having decided on the spur of the moment to spend a night in Fatima on our way back from Lisbon, this hotel was our first choice. We were lucky they had a room for us because they were fully booked from the following day onwards for a week.
Once again, we were treated very well by the owners and the staff. Our room was spotless, quiet and comfortable. We opted to have their lunch and dinner buffets as from previous experience, we knew that the food was delicious. It was wonderful to see the owners and the staff eating in the same dining area with the guests as it gave the impression that you were also part of the hotel family! For €12 per person you can enjoy quality Portuguese cuisine complete with drinks. They do require that you make reservations at least an hour before each meal so that they can prepare the appropriate amount of food for the said number of guests. Another plus factor of this hotel is that they offer free wi-fi in all the rooms and public areas. There is also a free car park for guests just behind the hotel.
My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay here very much. Going to the sanctuary in the night imbued us with a sense of peace and purpose and God willing, we would like to repeat this experience again in the near future. The basilica is beautiful at night and the lit cross at the apex is like a beacon of hope that can be seen from kilometers away because Fatima's terrain is relatively flat.
