Restored medieval castlePosted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: Beautiful, & comfortable historical castle. The buffet breakfast - fantastic. Restaurant - a superb setting.
Cons: I requested a double bed for husband & myself, but were given singles permanently separate. Didn't worry as had colds.
Location: It is the highest point in the walled town. It is a popular wine growing region & known for its sheep cheese & smoked sausage.
We stayed 2 nights. Beds and room were very comfortable and quiet. We ate at the restaurant both nights, wanting to make the most of our beautiful surroundings. Service the first night was exceptional. The soups were perfect ( as we both had colds) couldn't get through second course. We really felt at home. We had also previously stayed at Pousada de Obidos, from same chain, which was also a wonderful castle experience.

A magnificent palacePosted Dec 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hilltop location, the quality of restoration, the large rooms overlooking the town and surrounding countryside, and the thoughtful and impressive room furnishings of this magnificent palace hotel are reason enough to travel out of one's way to visit Estremoz. Although the hotel is somewhat removed from the center of town, it is really self-contained and both dinner and breakfast at its restaurant was excellent (as was the restaurant service). The pool, too, is pleasantly located and just large enough for lap swimming. Our only complaint was that the bed was a bit too firm. It would be nice to have a few rooms available with slightly softer mattresses and twin beds.
