Beautiful place and a 507 year old convent and really good staff. Breakfast excellent but diner no go. We experience in all the pousada's bad food for dinner. We don't understand that because on every corner in Portugal you can eat very fresh food. This food was the worst ever ! Boiled dry chicken , spaghetti with shrimp all without any taste or sauce and not even used salt and pepper. Even the staff felt embarrassed . So management take up the advice : sleeping and dining is an overall experience and should be in balance. We understand now that guest are eating outside as there were only 4 + 2 there. Not good for the pestana group. Only 2 stars due for the food

All employees we contacted are five stars. However, we would like to highlight Rúben at the reception for his hospitality and professionalism. It was heartening to see the effort of everyone, without exception, to make our stay memorable! Congratulations to the Pestana group for maintaining the Pousadas in the interior of the country, in historic buildings, whose maintenance must be particularly difficult and costly. Therefore, we are looking forward to the reopening of the Pousada de Estremoz.

We use the Pousada as the base for a 3-day short holiday touring around Vila Voçosa. The hotel is in a historical beautiful convent building, extremely well preserved and refurbished. We had a large and comfortable bedroom and the breakfast was very nice too. Only "but", the restaurant menu: we decided to have dinner the 3 nioghts and the offering is too limited.

The hotel have also a restaurant but there are some nice restaurants nearby. I liked very much the "Restauração" restaurant with very good local food. With wine I paid 25€ or person. There is also a free park for your car.

We paid 209.70€ for 1 night, breakfast included and received a room where fridge was not on (when it was on, it has only worked on 30% and this with a heat outside of 35°), bathroom was in very bad condition, all the bedroom equipment was old. Our room was really the opposite of Luxury. The staff in reception was friendly. The breakfast was poor. We received a couple of things to eat on the table, no choice and quality was poor. On our trip we have been in 12 different hotels, in 11 we got a breakfast buffet with a good choice, in Vila Vicosa not. When we arrived the parking was full, the pool was also very busy. We suppose that people from outside was using the pool and the parking as when it was dark, the parking was a lot less busy.
