“Delightful”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We only had one night here at the end of July but we couldn't have wished for anything better and will be sure to return and for a longer stay next time. Due to flight times we arrived mid morning and before our room was ready. Whilst we sat in the shade drinking a cool beer on the terrace admiring the pool, we were informed that we had been upgraded to a superior room over looking the pool as it was ready before the room originally allocated to us. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable, the bed was very firm as other guests have noted, but ideal for us. We walked across the grounds to the restaurant in the evening and enjoyed an excellent meal. Other customers that we spoke to in the restaurant were not residents but commented on the fact that it was one of the best places to eat in the area. The breakfast which is served in the hotel main building was of equally high standard with a fabulous cold buffet plus cooked eggs and bacon for those who wished. This is a family run hotel and the level of customer service is excellent, efficient and friendly. If you are looking a quiet, comfortable country hotel look no further.

Room Tip: The bedrooms overlooking the pool have the best views and are larger

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, one at the start of our holiday & one at the end. Everything was well presented & the staff helpful & friendly. Our stay felt more like a stay with family rather than an impersonal hotel. The room was spacious, spotless & beautifully quiet. We enjoyed eating in the restaurant both evenings & the breakfasts were delightful especially the range of fresh fruits & small pastries. Couldn't fault this hotel apart from it being a little difficult to find when we arrived! This almost adds to it's charm as it is a little off the beaten track.

This is a small rural hotel, with around 20 rooms, nice architecture and tasteful decoration, friendly and warm service, in a quiet spot in Algarve’s splendid countryside (10 minutes away from Faro or Olhao). A car is strongly advised. The route can look complicated at the beginning, but there are lots of signs around the villages of Estoi and Pechao.
Lots of things to do / see very close, from the Roman ruins of Milreu, to boat trips in Ria Formosa, bird watching or just sunbathing around the swimming pool.
Relaxed, quiet atmosphere. The grounds/gardens are well maintained and the restaurant is excellent and very reasonable priced. The pool is nice and very clean, and there are also some golf grounds to practice.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable and modern. The rooms facing South can get really warm in the afternoon, but all have a/c. Beds mattresses rather firm, which for me is an advantage.
Breakfast was good, but not 5* (the only thing I will rate 4*). Limited room mini-bar, but then I have not asked for more.

We stayed here for the last two days of our Algarve trip and we can only echo the positive reviews listed previously. This tastefully decorated hotel is perfectly located in beautifully kept grounds. The quiet relaxed atmosphere is matched by the friendly attentive service. We were often the only people by the swimming pool and at times felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Spacious rooms were well appointed with excellent en-suite facilities. The restaurant/dining area within the grounds was lovely with excellent food.
If staying for a longer period, then the seafood restaurants in Olhao and a ferry ride to the Barrier islands are a must. The only way to enhance our stay would have been the addition of a water cooler or two, a more eco-friendly solution for drinking water than having to buy bottles from the mini-bar or ordering them from reception. Our room faced the pool/grounds and provided lovely views. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend and return.

Room Tip: Request a pool view room if available

I've just come back with my family (6 adults 2 one year olds) and I have to say the Quinta dos Poetas is one of the best hotels i've stayed in.

It's so comfortable, friendly, welcoming and nice. It's incredibly relaxing, just sitting by the pool. Or perhaps a quick game of golf on their mini cours (5 holes around 100m each). Th on site restaurant was top quality and seemed busy with Portuguese people (a good sign).

The staff are very friendly and helpful and would do anything to make your stat a bit more pleasant.

I woul thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday away from the main tourist areas in Portugal!

Room Tip: Ask for cafe con lait at breakfast!

I hosted a long weekend “big” birthday party for 16 at the Quinta in February 2011 and have nothing but praise for the establishment and the staff. From the moment that I contacted them to enquire as to the possibility, they were friendly and highly responsive by email, even in the evenings and at weekends, and the event itself went extremely well.

The Quinta is most attractive and is only 20 minutes by car from Faro airport towards the quieter, less developed Eastern Algarve. It is 10 minutes drive from Olhao, where there are plenty of restaurants for variety of eating plus interesting walking through the markets, along the “front” and around the Ria Formosa Natural Park. If without a hire car, one can easily call for taxis.

The bedrooms are large and very comfortable, with Ethernet ports in each one. The rooms are on the ground and first floors (there is a lift for luggage only), with magnificent views over the largely open country. There was a very welcome open fire in the lounge/reception area. There are large grounds, with a 5 hole pitch and putt course and an outside swimming pool.

Breakfast is taken in the hotel building; the only thing that some people thought could have been better was the coffee (although tea drinkers were delighted with the electric kettle which ensured boiling water). The restaurant (which also caters for large events) is some way away at the bottom of the slope so that hotel guests are not bothered by any noise (although the location did cause us a bit of a problem when torrential rain occurred just as my guests wanted to walk from the hotel to the restaurant for my lunch event!) The food was excellent – perhaps starters were a trifle too large!

This is a small family-run hotel in a quiet location; nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly recommended - especially for a mature birthday party with a difference!
