It is hard to write a review of a great hotel when much has been said before that I totally agree with. Thankfully, my GPS took us directly to the hotel with no problems. Yes, the roads are very narrow around Evora. We pulled into the yard just as a car was leaving thus, I had to back out and...

We made a round trip through Alentejo and Algarve and this hotel is by far the best we stayed in. True, it might be a bit "the American way", but it stays a true portuguese hotel with nice fado music playing in the background and very friendly portuguese crew. Excellent customer service, drink offered at arrival and explanatory booklet with...

We stayed at this wonderful hotel on 7th April on the last part of our drive down to the Algarve. What a find - the staff were amazing and whilst not perhaps a 5 star hotel, I would rank this up with top quality hotels around the world. Nothing was too much trouble and breakfast outside was a delight. We...

I would recommend this hotel very highly. Unbeatable customer service. The staff have been carefully chosen and they make you feel extremely relaxed and that nothing is too much trouble. This hotel has everything catered for. Fabulous breakfast, parking, drink on arrival, free wifi, top location, you name it.

Perfectly located just within the medieval city walls, the Albergaria do Calvario is a remarkable hotel in every respect. A modern repurposing of a former olive oil mill, it offers smartly furnished rooms, every kind of comfort and a breakfast unexcelled even by Spain's Paradors which specialize in this amenity. But its service is what lifts this inn into its...

We stayed here for two nights and thought it was wonderful. We had a superior room which was very large with a big, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. The breakfast was the best we had in Portugal, including pancakes and French toast, and we ate it in the beautiful sunny courtyard. All the staff were so friendly. Overall a highly...

From the moment we arrived and were offered fresh, home made lemonade to the moment we left with a packed lunch of an Alentejo olive bread sandwich and micro herb salad, our stay could not have been better. We were upgraded to what I believe must be the best room in the place, complete with private terrace overlooking the courtyard....

Had a lovely couple of nights here, really comfortable but made special by the engaged and helpful staff. Breakfast of kings as we'll - set us up for a serious bike ride in the cork & olive groves. Thank you!

This is the 3rd time in one year we stay at this hotel. Each time they meet all our expectations and make us feel very welcome.
