Ranked #5 of 10 Grandola B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 October 2016

A group of us stayed here as part of a horse riding holiday for 1 night and then a further 2 at the end of the week. I shared accommodation with 1 other. We had a studio style room with a small dining area / kitchenette ,double bed with bathroom off on the ground floor and stairs up to the mezzanine with 2 single beds. No hair dryer but I didn't expect to have one in a hotel rural. The lighting level was a bit low. The setting was lovely, surrounded by cork trees and with a flock of sheep grazing amongst them. The pool was cold but very welcome after a long day in the saddle.
David, our host, was very friendly and willing to assist in any way. His mum makes the cakes & deserts which served at breakfast and dinner - delicious! The food is local and very good and the wine a reasonable price.
Internet signal was available close to the office.

Located outside of Grandola this accommodation complex is part of a working cork plantation. The bedrooms are spread over several buildings. Apparently some bedrooms are studio style with the bedroom up a flight of stairs, bathroom on the lower level. Our room was single-level and very spacious with double glass doors out on to a semi-private patio. The only criticism was the lack of lighting in the bathroom. The staff were welcoming. The heated indoor pool was a bonus. Breakfast was adequate but not exceptional. The isolation is an attraction, and we left the drapes drawn overnight so as to enjoy the moonlight over the cork trees and the night sky. Wi-Fi was only available in the reception office and it was terribly slow. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for single level bedroom.

This place is really in the middle of nowhere but that makes it so interesting; it is part of a large establishment working on cork and you can see how they are handling the cork skins taken from the trees; the rooms are spacious and well done; it is very quiet and yet it has a very small pool to relax and a a tennis court as well; very good local food is served in the restaurant; knowing a little bit of Portugees is recommended as the staff speaks very little English

The purpose of this trip was as a romantic getaway for my girlfriend and I and it was pretty much perfect for that. The rooms are set out alongside each other, but with enough space between the living quarters and bedrooms that, even though we had a young family next door, we were never disturbed and had pretty much perfect peace and quiet, the whole weekend.
It's a family run hotel and you immediately get this vibe and also one of the place being totally relaxed. We didn't eat in the restaurant at dinner, but everything smelled terrific and the breakfast was excellent, with a good range of foods of different kinds, in a buffet format, along with tea and coffee.
We used the indoor pool during the afternoon, which is behind the reception building and so does not feel overly exposed, rather quite private. One thing that was truly amazing was the lack of light pollution - this place is in a rural tourism zone - and so we were able to sit outside and watch the stars before we went to bed. Super romantic. Highly recommended.

Went on this summer. Arriving at this place is the same feeling when we arrive at home, excelent reception, the food is very good and local. Nice to rest for the city stress and stay with our family. Good for kids with playground and pool.
