Very relaxing and the gardens and landscapes are beautiful.
If you are looking for some quiet time and time away from the stresses of city life, you will certainly enjoy Hotel Fonte Santa.
Good quality for the price paid.
People very friendly and helpful, hotel staff included.
Only negative points: pool maintenance (pool chairs in particular) should be improved on, and the food and service at the pool bar could also be improved!
Other than this, a perfect stay!
Hope we can return again someday.

The Hotel is very nicely decorated and blends in perfectly with the landscape. The surroundings, gardens and swimming pool are excellent and the location is so goos that it really allows you for a proper rest and a proper escape for the busy life in the city. An amazing place to rest, while being very comfortable and with all commodities available.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms offer the best view.

We went to Hotel Fonte Santa for some days of comfort after spending a week of camping on a festival. And we were not disappointed! The garden scenario is super beautiful: A well shaped pool framed in green, the surrounding highlands glowing surreal in the sunset light while birds were cruising above our heads. And also the sights inside were very well chosen: Colonial comfort meets 70s architecture meets countryside flair. Staff was friendly and guests were mixed: some posh, some families, some pensionists. Breakfast and lunch come by buffet, we enjoyed it while I do advice to order a la carte at least one time to check the difference. Hotel Fonte Santa is not cheap but we found the price adequate. We would return if destiny decides to!

Very nice hotel if you want to relax. Staff are very welcoming and very courteous.
The hotel is surrounded by nature and there is no noise other tan the birds. The room was nice if you like traditional type décor. The feather pillows a delight. Wifi was alright for normal browsing (not for heavy use) throughout the hotel except in certain areas of the pool where they must have a black out area.
The pool area looks amazing and it´s worth a picture for your Instagram if you have one! However, the water was freezing and the pool could be cleaner.
The restaurant and the food and the waiters in the restaurant were great. Meals are buffet type and buffets can often be low quality or random. Well, this one wasn´t! The quality was fantastic and the choice very good. Homemade meals with different choices and if you like sweet, you can´t miss the desserts and the fruit, they comes from heaven!

Room Tip: make sure you have a room on the first floor facing the pool area

I'm still at the hotel as I write this review.
Glorious landscapes, good equipment, very, very nice staff.
Room is standard - nothing to complain about.
Breakfast was good.
Sauna and steam bath could be easier to find (it on the minus 1 floor, after a room corridor, so not really easy to find), and could be a bit hotter.
The night staff at the restaurant made one of the smartest marketing moves I've seen in this sort of hotel in this country. I told the guy I wanted a slice of pudding, and he could put it on my room, and he replied: help yourself freely, so you get to know the quality of our food and next time you'll have dinner with us! You bet I will!@ great move and great food, by the way.
Breakfast was good with a truly wonderful view obverse the mountains, gardens and pools. Glorious.
Sleeping quality was wonderful. No noise and a fantastic awakening.
Free Wi-Fi all over.
Free parking.
Will return for sure!
