Positive Reviews

Large comfortable rooms and beautiful setting.

You can comfortably unwind in these rooms, even if you have a lot of luggage or pick up stuff during your travels. The rooms well represent the resort sentiment of the property, and the views are quite amazing. On the grounds and inside the accommodations, all around there is a luxurious and peaceful atmosphere.

Stunning location for a countryside getaway.

Pousada de Faro, Palácio de Estoi is conveniently located for checking out top attractions, namely golfing, beaches, and historical villages. The hotel's facade is stunning and certainly stands out amidst the equally striking Portuguese countryside. It's a setting fit for photographs and for being a great Algarve destination.

Nice amenities to round out a peaceful holiday.

Being able to relax onsite is a benefit to getting away from home, work, and schedules. The spa services are a nice treat, as are the sauna and Turkish bath facilities. They're clean and well maintained, and offer additional moments of quiet and reflection without having to leave the hotel's comforts.

Negative Reviews

Staff is inconsistent with prompt attention.

Although there are instances where the staff are prompt and courteous, many times they are unfortunately not at their best. Complaints vary from being difficult to find and slow to respond, to rudeness and ignoring requests.

Food selections are poor quality and overpriced.

If you're looking forward to local delicacies, you may be disappointed. The ingredients are poor, and the quality of cooking and presentation is strongly lacking. The prices are too high for dishes that don't suggest a high end kitchen or culinary skills.

Decor is not as complementary or fresh as expected.

The attempt at blending modern décor with the hotel's historical character doesn't completely work. It's too disjointed, and doesn't uphold the charm that the building should have.
