Wow! This place was home away from home (and possibly even nicer). The room, garden, breakfast, pool, surrounding area - this place had it all. It is a bit "vintage" looking from the outside and may even be overlooked by most people - but that would be a mistake. The rooms were furnished with antiques and while the bathroom was a bit dated - the rest of the room made up for it two-fold. The garden area (orange grove and other fresh fruits/vegetables) is open to guests to stroll in day and night - and is well worth it - so peaceful and relaxing. The pool is the older stone bottom style versus the standard blue paint, which just made it all the more inviting. The staff was friendly, warm and despite some language barriers - pleasant to deal with. The breakfast (fresh orange juice daily from the grove) was fantastic and included. Then comes the little village - quaint, quiet, yet alive with locals Good food (fresh fish), good people, and full of charm. Additionally, the nearby mega-mall (Freeport Outlet Mall) is a nice little jaunt from the center of town and has even more local restaurants to sample. This review can go on and on about this little place...but I'll conclude with this: worlds better than staying in Lisbon and given the chance, I'd return tomorrow.

Room Tip: We booked a superior room, which was just big enough to move around, but not so large as to get lost...

The place has a lot of charme. Nice swimming pool but not really sunbeds near the pool to relax. Village is lovely and there are some nice and affordable restaurants.

We stayed at Quinta da Praia das Fontes during our much anticipated dream holiday in Portugal. After spending two weeks in a private villa rental home in the hills above Tavira in the Algarve, it was difficult to leave the south and travel to the Lisbon area. However, I must say that we we were just as pleased with Quinta da Praia das Fontes and loved the quaint community of Alchoete! The staff was fantastic - and truly made us feel at home! The apartment was well appointed and met our needs. Our children loved the game room - and the opportunity to meet and play with other kids. The town of Alcochete was friendly and welcoming - we especially loved listening to beautiful fado music at Senor Fado's! A lovely experience!!

Quaintly old fashioned in style & service, but all the more charming for it. Beautiful courtyard layout in historic finca. Room functional & comfortable, breakfast excellent, definitely the preferred stopover in Alcochete.

I would go back to the Quinta in a heartbeat. My partner and I weren't clear on how to reach it from the airport, but one of the managers went out of his way to make sure we found our way without having to pay for a taxi by calling us to check we were in the right place and then giving us a lift in his car from the bus stop in Alcochete! Then we discovered it was day off!

Room was lovely with old furniture and a traditional terracotta ensuite. Watch out for ants, but they are very common everywhere...the manager got the spray out and this solved the problem.

Hotel has a private orchard with quiet seating areas, garden, tennis court and non-heated swimming pool (it was too cold for us in Sept). The grounds really are gorgeous and private, surrounded by trees and flowers. There's also a games room with ping pong, table football and snooker.

Breakfast is served pretty much whenever you ask for it the night before and includes fresh traditional bread.

WiFi connection is poor or non-existant from the rooms but good from the breakfast table.

There's an amazing cocktail bar opposite the hotel entrance, very good value and incredible views, it is called Alcach! Also a good ice cream shop down the road called Daisy's. We took the free-to-borrow bikes from the hotel and discovered it on the sea front.

The restaurants in Alcochete are charming, cheap and full of fresh local fish. Try T.Tonho...the owner knew the hotel manager and gave us free shots and extra fish to try!

Altogether a lovely laid back town if you want to escape city life.
