Magical castle hotel with magical views in a magical hill fortress town.
Common areas and halls were great (did i mention magical). Have drink in the hall at the bar. Restaurant was the only game in town (another place across the courtyard was closed for the season I think). It serves good local cuisine.
Hotel rooms are decorated in a kind of 17th or 18th century style (my wife found them dated and tired. I found them charming.).
Have wine and cheese in little store as you come through the gates. Great wine and local cheeses and sandwiches.
Great area. We only stayed 2 nights but one could park themselves in a few places in the area for a couple of weeks to take it all in.
Like other Pousadas, offered a very good breakfast.
If you have trouble walking, a castle hotel like this might be a daunting proposition (there is an elevator so walking is doable with some effort).

This Pousada is one of the best ever. Quiet and peaceful. The room is spacious and very private. The decoration is really exquisite.
Besides that, the breakfast is amazing and the restaurant Rainha Santa Isabel has wonderful dishes and class A service provided by mr. Isaurindo. It is a place to remember and return. The cost is compatible with everything offered.

Pousada Castelo Estremoz is a hotel like no others. The decor, the marble staircases, carpeting, bar area, and lighting places you square in the middle of a museum. I loved every minute I spent there and definately will return.

If you like ants and damp rooms you may feel good. If not please look for another place in the surrendings. The hotel is very good situated, and very beautiful; but with these leaks it absolutely cannot be recommended.

Dear Mr. Gerard.,

We appreciate your visit and deeply regret not having lived up to your expectations. In fact, the Pousada is located in Castelo and it was certainly a punctual problem that can be seen in changes in temperature outside. We hope to have the opportunity to receive you again so that you can enjoy a more pleasant stay.
Kind regards,
Maria de Jesus Bordalo

We arrived at sunset during a serious windstorm. This was the perfect backdrop for this historic site. Doors and windows rattled and we could imagine ourselves back in time. The decor is original with interesting art , furniture, and tapestries in each area. We had a large bedroom with living area, and entrance hallway and private bath. Some might complain that the bathroom was a bit small but the beautiful marble and updated fixtures were a pleasant surprise. We had a delicious dinner at the hotel and breakfast was included. The property has a church and museum on site for exploring. I would highly recommend a visit here possibly for a couple of days. There is a beautiful pool area as well and the surrounding villages are very interesting.
