Spent 3 nights with husband and children and came back with mixed feelings. Staff is excellent: go out of their way to help you in anyway they can and make sure you have a wonderful stay, especially the front desk staff. However they seemed to be few for the size of the hotel. For instance, if we were at the pool we would often have to go across the hotel to the bar to find someone to serve us a drink. The facilities are wonderful and the view is unbeatable. If you want a relaxing weekend this is the place to come. Pool is very nice too, with a smaller one for children and plenty of lazychairs and shades. Restaurant was ok. Breakfast was good on Sunday but started loosing quality as the week progressed and there were less people at the hotel. On our last day there weren't even any scrambled eggs or bacon, only a few slices of cheese and some left over slices of the home made cake I was so impressed about when it was first presented... 2 days before! Location is also very convenient if you want to do some sightseing with children (monte selvagem and fluviario de mora are both about a 30 minute drive), go out for dinner or lunch (Alpendre in Arraiolos is a must if you like "migas" and not at all expensive; estremoz and evora close enough and lots of choices). Would I go again or recomend it? Probably yes but would keep expectations low on the breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more less
