Delightful afternoon spent by the pool with excellent waiter service.Unfortunately, we had a very disappointing Dinner.We had to leave just before 6am and were offered a takeaway sandwich box, as the restaurant did not open until 7:30am - A better option should be available.

Not SLH Standard. What a shame as it could be beautiful with a bit of care and attention. Dinner and breakfast was ok. Rooms need updating.Inconvenient to have to pay for extras immediately as no room tab.More

Originally a palace in ruin but renovated to a hotel/ pousada. Really lovely . Lots of original features remain . Not too far from little town of Estoi with quaint church and bars. Very nice little town .

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

We hired a vehicle. I would suggest to arrange a driver or cab (be aware one of our Uber drivers in Losbon was impaired). Wonderful to walk the village. Visit the Roman ruins....fascinating!
