We just checked in in the hotel. 10 minutes outside on the son with a baby because the door was locked and no one at the reception. At the end the cleaning lady came to open. She called the owner to give us the rooms and surprise! They were waiting for us yesterday?! Than they convinced (after me presenting documents of the booking and payment) that our reservation is for today. They give us the first available room, small, old, two hard and tiny beds (not at all a double) and no cradle for our son. They told us that they will bring the cradle (I hope they will). General infos about near villages were given, no restaurant available were we are. Than every one disappeared. No one at the reception, no one in the hotel. Just the cleaning lady that only speaks Portuguese. No infos about the breakfast, if there is any. Dark and tiny room with bathroom with no windows. Seriously disappointed, not a 4 star.
If you go to visit Castelo De Vide and Marvao villages and castles you must come to stay in this boutique hotel. It is kept by a lovely couple who give you all their warm loving welcome feeling. All the hotel and our rooms were syperbly and tastefully decorated with antique household elements: vases, pots, benches, scales, etc. Smallest details were thought through to give us best emotions: slippers, bathrobes, body lotion. It was also very very very clean! We took two rooms so we got an extra key to connect them into one unit. It was very convenient for the family. We were recomended to have dinner at the small village tavern with amazing but rather unexpensive food. And afterwards we were straling though the village on the late night hours. All the inhabitants were getting outdoors after the hot day. Music started playing in the local bar. Old lovely ladies talking on the doorsteps. Marvao castle in the distanc. It was so real so romantic and simple village of Sao Antonio das Areias! I will come here atleast once more!
We note the overall favourable reviews however travelers early in the season should be aware of our experience. Our assigned room smelled musty and we were advised that the restaurant was closed and would have to drive 5km for dinner. After looking at one of their other rooms and walking the village to confirm there was indeed no other restaurant we decided we did not want to go so far to eat and then have to drive back to a musty building where we were the only guests. Our decision was to cut our losses and move to another hotel in Marvao. In our mind the rooms should have been aired out and we should have been alerted beforehand that we could neither eat at the hotel nor in the village.
Beautiful decorated hotel, lovely and helpful crew willing to help in any aspect. Got recommendation for a very good restaurant. Excellent sleep quality. Everything we would expect of such a hotel. We highly recommend this hotel if you are in the area.
A very cosy and peaceful hotel. The bed is quite confortable and the bathroom is spacious enough and very clean! The staff is very friendly and hepful. The surroundings of this hotel is the amazing village of Marvão. Also next door there is a small minimarket. I recommend this boutique hotel and the price/service is quite good.
The Santo Antonio dad Areias city is very calm and home of a very neat and comfortable little hotel! The breakfast is really nice! The rooms are nice and the shower is great. Beds are comfortable and very refreshing, sleep is guaranteed! The owner receives everyone and is very rich in detailing the attractions around the area! Pay attention for the recommendations!
The boutique hotel has a nice atmosphere thanks to the decoration and patio, but most especially because of the friendly staff, who know very well the area and can recommend you lots of interesting walking and cycling tours. And very helpful to supply bicycles as well. The area is so quiet, it's perfect to unwind from busy life back home and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the Marvão region.
I can only recommend the hotel for everybody. The really friendly staff, the clean and quiet hotel, and the warm hospitality made our stay very relaxing. The hotel is really close to Marvào and Castello de Vide.
I've stayed in the hotel for 2 days with a group of friends. We found the rooms warm and comfortable. The heating on the bathrooms was not working very well. The hotel living room was cold as it communicates directly with the entrance door. We had dinner there - the food was average and the price very expensive. The dinning room lights were too bright as if we were eating in a canteen. We didn't have fresh orange juice for breakfast (but we did have tetrapack juice) and no alentejano bread (typical bread, very good) but a regular plain bread. A pity that on Alentejo were we have very good oranges and bread, we didn't have those for breakfast. I was expecting more from a Boutique Hotel.
Surly reception after a long drive... No greeting, not shown to room... Hotel was almost empty. The room was clean but felt like it hadn't been used in a long time (a bit musty). The beds were the hardest we've ever tried to sleep on. Pillows were like rocks... No give! We like hard beds, but these were to die on. However, there aren't many choices near Marvao. On the plus side... A really great breakfast with many fresh choices served by a hard working, friendly lady. After a hard night... A relief with good, strong coffee.
