This is the worst Small Luxury Hotel of the world I have stayed in. Definitely not up to SLH’s usual standards. Rooms dark and tired with basic facilities, no atmosphere, lethargic staff, poor food. Better places to stay close by.

We like the quiet of pousada and the room but we did't like garden. The pousada is in a good location near Faro and Algarve coast. There is also car parking. The room is very confortable, and we like the breakfast.

Your stay such as a canned food. No good, no bad, just somenthing in a can. Terrible location. Horrible restaurant. Pool closes too early for a summertime. Bar does not work. Bad prices. No services for your luggage.More

There are so many flaws. The palace is sadly neglected, with furnishings seemingly sourced from a used office supplier. The restaurant furnishings were far from what one would expect from an operation that describes itself as a luxury hotel. The staff are very poorly trained,...More

We hired a vehicle. I would suggest to arrange a driver or cab (be aware one of our Uber drivers in Losbon was impaired). Wonderful to walk the village. Visit the Roman ruins....fascinating!
