We stayed in the Pousada Palacio de Estoi for a weeding weekend and we were absolutely excited! The location itself is just wonderful, the food was excellent and we slept very well in the high-quality beds! The service was 100% correct and very friendly!

The hotel had a big room with balcony. Eating in the restaurant is rather expensive. We paid 65 euros for 2 people (no alcohol). There is a tiny indoor swimming pool, too cold to swim outdoors in March. Beautiful gardens inside. Too boring in the hotel if you like an active holiday style. This hotel is good for lazy holiday...

St. Patrick's Day was a Friday so we decided to get away for a long weekend with some sunshine. At that time of the year there are limited direct departures to the sun from Ireland so we chose Faro. I follow pousadasdeportugal on Instagram so knew there were some beautiful properties to choose from - Palacio de Estoi was only...

The highlights of the Palacio are the gardens and the well appointed rooms that are enhanced with high quality woodwork. The service is wonderful and the breakfast plentiful and filled with delights. There is not that much to do in Estoi, so this is a place for those looking for a tranquil spot to recharge. The views from the hotel...

Pousada Palacio de Estoi is a small luxury hotel located in the quiet village of Estoi. You really need a car to make the most of your stay here as public transport is limited. The hotel has plenty of parking - a choice of underground parking with access operated by room key, or outdoor parking bays. (We hired a car...

A lovely small hotel which has a large rooms with a balconies. The hotel is beautiful to look at and just wonder around the gardens. The staff are attentive and friendly while giving the impression that nothing is too much trouble. Estoi itself is a pretty small village with a couple of place to eat. We only had breakfast in...

Booked this online after joining the Pestana group hotel site which gives a discount to members and an additional discount for people of a certain age. We were not disappointed, the location of the hotel within beautiful grounds gives panoramic views to the coast. It is located in the charming small town of Estoi with several bars and restaurants nearby...

What a beautiful old building, amazing views, fabulous gardens and the old original features inside are fantastic. So it is with a great sadness that I say what a disappointing meal and what a disappointing ambiance the hotel has created. So bad I'm actually surprised it is classified as a Small Luxury Hotel of the World. The decor is totally...

This is a pleasant hotel and had a nice stay. What we look for most is peace and quiet and this is what we got. The female reception staff were excellent and always helpful. Thank you! Also, how fantastic Vittoria in the dining room was each morning. There were a few important points which I told reception about and which...

Beautiful building with helpful, friendly staff. Absolutely amazing breakfast, so much choice including CAKE! Had a little confusion when we first arrived as we'd booked a double but they had us down as a twin - maybe confirm in advance which room you've been assigned. We were a bit miffed as when we arrived we asked where was best to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The luxurious Pousada de Estoi, the Estoi Palace, born out of the recovery of an old eighteenth century palace, is located in the village of Estoi only 10 km from Faro. This palace once belonged to Jose Francisco da Silva, Viscount of Estoi, and was opened in 1909. In 1987, it was purchased by the Town Hall of Faro, and in 1977, it was considered a property of Public Interest. A project by architect Goncalo Byrne, this hotel in Faro has a Health Club where you can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. In a region with great gastronomic traditions you can find the Visconde restaurant, one of the Algarvian establishments which include fish and fresh seafood. The whole menu is inspired by Portuguese cuisine and exhibits a genuine form of art for good eating. Don't miss out on the deserts from Algarve made with figs and almonds grown locally. Experiencing the Pousada de Estoi is a pleasant journey with a combination of the classical, Baroque and contemporary elements that will definitely be a memorable experience. ... more   less
