The Pousada de Estoi is set in the old 19th century Estoi Palace, which used to belong to the Viscount of Estoi, Jos Francisco da Silva. The palace took 20 years to build and in May 1909 a huge party was thrown in the gardens to celebrate the inauguration. After the Viscounts death, the palace remained in the family until 1987, at which time it was acquired by Faro Municipal Council. Besides the main building, the tea pavilions and Versailles-style gardens are still being renovated.The Palcio de Estoi is a new Pousada de Portugal since May'09, a project signed by Gonalo Byrne, a famous portugues architect.

Evocative and beautiful

We visited during the off-season (November), and the hotel was empty and many of the local restaurants were closed. The hotel staff was helpful, the indoor garage was convenient, and the building and surroundings were evocative and beautiful. The only weak point was dinner, which we found to be less than stellar. [One plate which did not at all resemble the description in the menu was refused --- but quickly replaced was another order.] The front desk staff made some excellent recommendations regarding stops enroute to our next destination, and the experience overall was excellent.

A Great Place to Stay

We stayed here during the second half of our honeymoon in Portugal. It's a beautiful hotel located in a quiet, charming little town. Our room had a private outdoor space, and we could see over the valley. It was lovely to eat breakfast there every morning (which they will bring to you for a small fee). Estoi itself doesn't have much going on, but you're an easy drive from places like Faro, Tavira and Almancil. We felt that considering the size of the hotel, it was a wee bit understaffed. But the staff that was there were great and very accomodating. We would definitely stay here again.
