    Could not criticise the hotel... one should expect a quiet restful stay, so if one is looking for stimulation this is not the place for you...

    It is a great location to chill out... really nice hotel in lovely quiet little village surrounded by fantastic vineyards...

    Some desorientation of the staff at lunch hour. Cleary the staff was insuficient for the number of clients.

    The garden and the location, so close to the city center. We could walk to every where.

    While the oval bedroom windows are an architectural delight, they don’t open wide for much air. The reception staff on check out wasn’t really engaged, the whole process took 10 minutes when check out should be a quick affair. I also missed a room service menu and some more cooked food items, other than bacon and eggs, would be nice, mushrooms even...

    Lovely reception, bar & restaurant areas — luxurious, comfortable and very well designed. Very helpful reception staff on check in, not do helpful on check out though... Breakfast was lovely, especially as it was available until 11am.

    My room did not smell well, very poor in terms of bedroom decoration, I could hear conversations from the other rooms including the water going in the pipes, the bed sheets were old and used. Expensive for the facilities presented.

    Our visit was completely ruined on the Saturday night when a large party was held at the hotel. The noise was completely unacceptable and a very loud disco didn't finish until 3am! After that, the loud and boorish party guests continued making noise until 4.30am. No one booking to stay at this hotel would think that the management would consider it acceptable to have this sort of function taking place. Be warned if you are thinking of booking at a weekend. The next morning, the staff were very apologetic and embarrassed about having to deal with all the complaints.

    Lovely hotel with good, spacious, well decorated rooms. Beautiful pool area in pretty gardens. The staff were excellent, not many of them, but they worked very hard and were welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well located and a short walk into the centre of Estremoz. Good, varied breakfast.

    Pool service restaurant took around 40minutes for a serving of soup in a not so crowded day.

    The pool was great, the rooms clean and newly refurbished and it was a 2 min walk from the town center. The breakfast included lots of regional products, delicious. The best part was that we had an issue with our booking and they were super diligent in helping us solve it with booking.com, avoiding any extra costs for us.

    This is the second hotel that I stayed in Portugal that the A/C goes off when you take your key out of the slot to go out, so the room is hot when you get back.

    This was the first time at this hotel, the room was comfortable the grounds were well kept the pool area was relaxing, small town so everything is within walking distance.

    Unwelcoming and officious reception, we had booked 2 superior rooms in the main hotel. Room 1 had not been prepared, no bath towels, towel rail was hanging off, shower holder was broken, extractor broken, drawer missing in desk. Room 2 had one armchair missing, toilet seat broken, extractor broken. No tissues or shaving mirror in bathrooms, carpets throughout worn and dirty. The faults were all reported straight away and only the towel rail fixed, despite reporting daily. The breakfast buffet was not replenished efficiently, we had to alert the lady that things were missing frequently, particularly coffee and bacon. Not enough staff in hotel, bar never manned and had to go to reception to get served. The spa area wasn't actually part of the hotel as described and had to be pre-booked, as it was run by an external company! We shouldn't have had to spend holiday time trying to sort out our rooms daily. Upon checkout we dealt with a different receptionist, who was helpful and discounted our stay slightly.

    Comfortable bed, lounge and breakfast room well decorated

    Bathroon and bath a bit small as well as rhe room itself. NO WIFI IN THE ROOM, I disguss thar! The breakfast is acceptable but not attractive. The glasses for orange juice are too small, the choice of bread is limited. The egg and bacon are not really weell cooked. The choice of background music could be more 'alegre'.

    Massage (€45,00/hour). Lovely girl, great experience. We were allowed to keep our yorkshire terrier in the room. Generally it is a quiet and relaxed place to be, sit and eat. Although the main room has too many chairs all together it looks like a showroom of IKEA and a bad choice of pictures and paintins in the breakfast room.

    The pillows need to be brought up to the standard of the bed! The heating in the room was poor so it was quite chilly. The central heating system radiators didn't work so the bathroom was cold. Reception told us there was a problem with the system so the radiators weren't working. Very poor in the winter!

    The rooms look and feel like a generic 3 star hotel that could be anywhere than a "charm" hotel. There are 41 of them so this is not the boutique cozy place the name suggests. The elevator was broken and didn't get fixed for 3 days...

    The hotel restaurant was ok, there are better choices at a reasonable distance.

    I've booked this hotel as a "Weekend getaway" and it served its purpose quite well. The rooms were comfortable and nice, the staff was extremely nice and the breakfast, although not having all that much variety, was very tasteful. The location was good, you could reach almost everything by foot, just next to it, on Saturdays, there's a very traditional Street Market, which was very interesting. Free parking and Internet.

    The hotel felt very impersonal and the facilities advertised on booking.com were non existent. These facilities were the reason for booking and paying above the average. We were informed on leaving that the ham mans had been removed the previous year!! The other 'spa ' facilities necessitated an outside agency being called in, at expensive rates. Bar prices exorbitant. No staff on hand at breakfast

    Situation as close to castle and town centre. Restaurant was the only saving grace.

    Very nice place and a lot of places to visit in this region within 30min untill 1 hour drive. Swimmingpool and garden very nice and clean. Good parking facilities.

    Restaurant and bar could be made more authentic and modern rather than the fine dining intentions they have that doesn't seem to fit in. Reception area should be modernised as it doesn't do the place justice.

    Great location, fantastic, nature, rooms were spotless. nice outdoor area.

    WIFI was only available in the lounge which was very inconvenient. We had some problems on checking out as the electronic credit card facility was not working. At first we were asked to pay in cash, but after protesting the reception went to fix the machine which took about 5 minutes or so. Then the credit card facility worked ! But it was all so unnecessarily annoying.

    Its a very good hotel and in beautiful grounds. Room was spacious. It is near to the Rossio, the main square.
