We were here a weekend for a family reunion and were very happy with the location, the room and the service. We dined twice in the restaurant, and although the staff were with little experience, and service was a bit slow, they were friendly and did their best. The food took a while to appear but was worth the wait....

Friendly but clearly without experience staff. Sleeping at a baron castle is neat... We stayed at the tower room (a bit noisy in the morning),but the superior room where sleep our grand-children and daughter,is much larger. Quality and quantity at the breakfast! Has a snooker room...

We stay in many Pousadas all over Portugal every holiday for many years, usually 2 separate weeks between December and January, don't think we have ever been disappointed with any of their services, obviously the buildings themselves vary in size, historic value and price but we have always known and got what we expected. This time we went to Pousada...

The rooms are in need of renovation, the service in the restaurant was bad, the back ground music in the restaurant was bed, and the radio was playing, with adverts and all, in a historic building...not acceptable. Called the manager (clueless) and she gave us a bunch of excuses, and we recommended that if she is going to put the...

This a very beautiful pousada in a nice and peaceful location. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable and immaculately clean. Restaurant was fine with excellent desserts. A pity there were no warm items on the second day of our stay at breakfast. Staff very friendly, most of them quite young and seem to be interns. We had...

The Pousada at Alvito is beautiful, with all of the historic charm expected of a castle and modern amenities expected of newly constructed hotels. The staff was extremely courteous. Ana Fialho in particular went to great lengths to make sure that we had rooms and were comfortable when part of our reservation was lost in the Pestana Group system and...

Very nice room which was very quiet and quite large enough. The hotel has beautiful gardens and pool area which look out (over the wall) on the town. So you are in the town but private. Some of the staff are trainees from the local professional training school but this is a partnership that works as they are already well...

We stayed in the suite on the top floor of the castle tower. After a day in the blistering Alentejo sun, a working air-con is no luxury. The moment we went to our room to sleep we found out that the old airco wasn't working. As the pousada was practically empty (only 5 rooms occupied), you would expect staff to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada do Alvito opened in 1993 after the recuperation of the fifteenth century castle. This building has been classified, since 1910, as a National Monument and an example of the best of the Portuguese architecture, which combines the architecture of the fortress and palatial residence and of Islamic, gothic and Manueline influences. The Alentejo village of Alvito is found around 30 km from Beja. A place that that both couples and families find inviting for relaxation in a splendid location surrounded by luxury, charm and finesse. Stepping out on the outdoor patio we can appreciate a view of the magical flickering lights from the Castle wall lights. Staying the night at the Alvito Castle is a great excuse for a romantic getaway and will delight all those who choose to do so. ... more   less
