    The staff seems pretty pressured. For example during dinner and breakfast, there were only 2 staffs and they were running everywhere. Sometimes you need to wait a bit

    Beautiful, historic hotel! The grounds and facilities are beautiful and fun to explore. We spent most of the afternoon laying by the pool, which was very relaxing and quiet. The restaurant at the hotel was overpriced and food was not very good for dinner. I would recommend venturing elsewhere for dinner. Other than the restaurant, this place was perfect for a romantic, relaxing night!

    The breakfast is excellent providing a real flavour of Portuguese local food; the standard rooms are wide and comfortable; the building and its surroundings are very beautiful. The staff is very welcoming, knowledgeable and willing to help. The area is rich in places to visit and history and the food is delicious!

    No heating in the room, although stated otherwise on booking listings, not allowing us to stay for the full booked days Also, no alternative available for transporting craddle or wheelchair besides a lot of stairs with uneven steps - it shouldn't be rated as 4 star hotel without these facilities. Impossible to stay in these conditions when you have a baby with you. Nowhere to be seen warnings in website or at the hotel stating these difficulties. Having warned the hotel that we were bringing a baby (for the extra-craddle), they should have warned us before our arrival - would have cancelled the booking.

    Staying in the Pousada in Crato was one of .. , if not THE highlight of our trip to Portugal. It was definitely worth the detour we choose to get there. Arriving at the well-preserved medieval cloister and beeing able to stay in one of the carefully renovated old rooms felt like a once in a lifetime experience, especially after the approach through the calm, wild and beautiful Alentejo (part of Portugal) - landscape with oaks and olive trees, hills and curvy roads. The traditional building beautifully contrasts with the modern extension which houses additional rooms, the outdoor swimming pool and a spa-area. Its definitely worth a several day stay, especially because there are some nice cities and spots to explore nearby and rewarding daytrips to be made.

    Small luxury hotel is misleading, the hotel struggels to keep a 4 star standard, many parts, in particular bathrooms, need an update or improvements. View from the restaurant or pool area on dilapidated shacks and barking dogs. The hotel has a problem with wild doves, private terrace useless and littered with excrements. Neither breakfast nor dinner offered in outside seating despite warm and dry weather. No touristic infrastructure in surrounding village.

    Virtually the only reason to go to Crato is the building of an impressive medieval fortified monastry housing the pousada. This alone counts and is worth any detour. Staff seems well trained, is efficient, friendly and helpful.
