Pousada Palacio De Estoi - Monument Hotel & SLH

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely hotel just outside faro -easy drive from the airport. We stayed only one night but it is a lovely place - fantastic gardens. The rooms are very spacious and modern. The restaurant meal in the evening was good quality and reasonably priced. Breakfast was good. We got a good out of season deal for the room. I think next time we will stay a couple of nights or more as it was a very relaxing stay.

Beautifully restored, with comfortable room, great food, beautiful view from the room and lovely balcony. The staff was very courtesous and helpful.. We would definitely stay again, and were sorry our visit was only for one night.

We wanted to experience one of the Pousadas in Portugal and decided Estoi would be ideal for our requirements. It is indeed a spectacular property inside and out. The suite that we stayed in was average, the view was fantastic. The lighting in the room was somewhat absent as was the need for some upgrades in the furnishings. The breakfast provided in the morning was horrible, so we decided to try a couple of the only available restaurants for other meals. All meals in the town were quite good. All in all, for the price and quality of food we would not recommend staying at this property. That being said, I would drop by and take some photographs of this beautiful place. In addition, be sure not to miss the Roman ruins nearby well, the entire town is absolutely fantastic for photographers.

Great experience - highly recommend staying in this baroque palace with irregular shapes and golden ceilings and soft colours. You can either listen to the birds or equally enjoy the quiteness of the contryside with a view to the orange orchard - while being close to the city and the beach.

all was done for us to make us well and satisfied in a fantastic place. We can easily visit and we are not far from the aeroport. We particulary like the breakfast which was delicious and generous.We adore also the gardens , very nice, quiet, and with birds which sing all the time.

An excellent stay in a beautiful setting. Excellent service.This is a restored castle with a new wing for accommodation. Attention to detail for the restoration,for example, the original kitchen stoves in the breakfast area. Original 1800 furniture decorating the new wing, mixture of old and new. Super!

Shame only 1 night will be back. Arrived very late and had to leave early in morning although did enjoy the wonderful spread at breakfast that was included in the price and was either a full continental or cooked breakfast ( or in my case both ! )

Pleasant hotel set on a hillside in the small village of Estoi. Breakfasts are generally satisfactory to good and the hotel has good views south to Faro and beyond. Helpful staff for the most part. Well located for access to the west-east Algarve motorway.

The faded opulence of the old palace combined with the modern and up-to-date hotel chambers created an interesting and unusual experience, The palace was lovely, a bit run-down in some parts (e.g. water coming in under the French doors from the terrace when it rained), but overall well-kept and charming. The floor in the small chapel was amazing. The room itself was large, well-lit and airy, with a beautiful view to the orange groves. The bed was one of the more comfortable hotel beds I've slept in, service was good (every evening you get chocolates and carpets brought to you!), and the breakfast buffet was very nice. Staff were very courteous and friendly. Small downside was one evening after dinner when we were hoping to have a drink at the bar, but the friendly waiter was so busy in the dining room that the bar was basically unmanned, though he popped in to say he'd be right with us. After waiting more than half an hour we decided to go to bed instead.

Me and my husband stayed here and just loved the hotel. The garden and the lovely paintings all over the hotel. Love it! The beds were very comfortable and huge. Unfortunately the food in the restaurant is not good. Eat before you arrive here! We had a sauna and a swim in the outdoor pool in January. Lovely weather!! We recommend this hotel to everyone that would like to have something special. I couldn´t stop taking pictures and movies from the hotel.
