This was our first stay in a pousada in Portugal. These historic hotels are not as well known internationally as the Spanish paradors but as they are now run by the Pestana group, the experience was closer to small luxury hotel than a parador experience. There was very little not to like. Service is super friendly, the hotel is very...

We spent only one night in Pousada. However, I would have loved to have spent more. The rooms are huge and like a very high end, brand new hotel. However, the Pousada is so much more. Breakfast is served in the central courtyard and is an amazing experience. The pool, just outside the Pousada, is tranquil and private. What I...

Our first visit to Portugal and our first accommodation in country, this Pousada was very nice. The best thing about it is the staff. They are very attentive and try very hard to anticipate your every need. The rooms are not large but are adequate. However, they are starting to show a bit of wear - the carpets were definitely...

Very quiet and comfortable hotel, in spite of needing some conservation works, which I as told are going to take place in Winter. The breakfast is very good. I had a fantastic dinner in the cloisters; not very cheap but worth every Euro. Excellent customer service.
