“An Exquisite Tea in the Desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2010

We stayed in this place recently for the first time. Really fantactic place and definitelly people. We named this post after the central tent with cushions that welcomes visitors in the center of the complex, really cozy and desert-like :)
We stayed in the "Cromeleque Suite" for three nights and really felt like kings! The room was exquisite, well decorated and nicely warm, also featuring an adjacent balcony with a great view to the surrounding plains.
The breakfast was immense, traditional and really varied, rarely to be seen :) Around this place there are several megalitical sites, and a complete itinerary was prepared for us by Luisa, the manager; she also lend us two bikes in which we travelled nearly 30 km; it was a really funtastic autumn sunny day!

We will certainly be coming back!

After reading a not very good "zoological" apreciation, I was a little bit worried about the place. But friends had given me excelent referencies, so my husband and I went there anyway, The place could not possibly be the same mentioned in the "zoological" comment! Fantastic pool!!! And no insects, frogs or mice!!! Seven star breakfast (the best I remember). Big, climatised and well decorated rooms. Superbe place! Could not recomend more!!!
I pointed the "zoological" comment to the staff and they said they already knew it and that it had been made by someone who tried to stay and not pay menacing to publish bad publicity in trip sites. It seems they had to pay anyway,,,

It seems a house in the desert. It is new and the plants are recent.
The rooms are beautiful but there are things at bathroom that don´t function. You can find ants and spiders everywhere. The breakfast is good.
The pool could be nice it wasn't full of dead bugs and fliers, dead little frogs and a DEAD MOUSE!!!
It´s a shame for a place so beautiful as Monsaraz!
