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...

Room was clean and comfortable. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful. The access to the old rooms and the gardens of the palace was fantastic. Reading in an old palace drawing room can not be beat.

We only came to have a look at the palace and gardens but stayed for lunch. We loved the interior, the views from the balcony, the special feel of the place. The food and service were excellent, although not cheap. It was our special treat

Fantastic place with unforgettable views. We only came for coffee, and did not stay in the hotel, but definitely want to come back. Views are fantastic and the interior is great. If you have time, have coffee and ice cream in the terrace and allow yourself half an hour of tranquillity and peace.

The building is really amazing, the hotel rooms are hidden in the new part, which is not visible from outside the Palacio. The rooms are really large with modern bath rooms. Service is nearby perect, but the menu is very limited, three types of meat and that's it. If you spend more tan two days,you will get in trouble, what...

Having visited Estoi on numerous occasions across the last 16 years and watching the progress of restoring the palace, we finally had the opportunity to stay in the finished hotel. This is restored to a high standard and the hotel and Spa compliment the original features. Accommodation is of a very good standard as is breakfast. However it is lacking...

I love Pousadas and the concept behind them. The room was comfy and spotless with a lovely bathroom and a feel of modern luxury. The only down side was we were miles from the main house so it was a long walk to the pool and breakfast. Traditional turn down service which I liked, nice products, should've had complimentary water...

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
