At the heart of Alentejo
This great hotel is perfect for spending time around Alentejo. If you want to go to the beach, do some hiking or just relax and enjoy the countryside, this is the perfect place! They also have an amazing dinner service which offers a different menu every night. Will definitely go back!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
shower temperature too hot
the place is very cheerful, everyone is friendly and the food is great. the shower runs too hot and cannot be adjusted to be warm. It’s either too hot or too cold or too little water. you get to see the horses being fed and trained every morning. the place is along a beautiful hiking trail.

3/5 Okay

not as good as the marketing made it out to be
The location in the country was beautiful. The rooms were not. Maybe we received a bad one but it was musty, stuffy, dark, and spidery. The air conditioning/fan thing don’t work to keep it from being too hot/stale yet if you opened the one door ( no window) all the bugs came in. Hotels.com said there was WiFi in the rooms ( a necessity when traveling without a phone ) but there was not). Thus we had to hang out in the common areas all night to get maps, driving directions , etc, which isn’t very relaxing. The common areas were really ok but really I would rather have a nice room.
