Few days after the city at this wonderful hotel. The quality of everything is first class and if you have any unanticipated needs then you only need to ask. The food is excellent both breakfast and dinner. Nearby the Roman ruin is very cool and the area has great things to see for says away.
From check-in to check-out, a wonderful experience. Exquisite property. It was a refreshing find with all the perks of wine tasting available. We will be back. The staff is attentive and does not miss a beat in communication throughout your stay. They are dedicated to making sure your experience is memorable.
5 star in every way. Well trained and attentive staff. Great food with great service as long as you are prepared to roll back and chill. Lovely swimming pools, great rooms and immersive nature experience. A healthy environment loved by the birds. Expensive maybe but you get what you pay for plus plus.
I've stayed at some pretty extraordinary hotels across Iberia, throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. This ranks among the very best, and it was an experience that both my 18-year old daughter and I fully enjoyed over a 1 night stay in mid-April. The staff was amazingly welcoming, giving us a tour of the property and explaining its history. The room was great as were all of the open seating areas. The pool was fantastic, and biking and walking the grounds was wonderful. The restaurant and the canteen had good cheese and great fish. The tower was certainly a highlight (although the low point was bumping my head going down the stairs). I am so glad to have found this place and I will certainly stay again when I am driving from Spain to Lisbon.
Awsome time at torre de Palma. Beautifull place, great food, top service. The wine paring menu at the restaurant was great. The view on the Tower is beatufill. The service is warm and polight, feels like home.
It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The area is extremely idyllic and peaceful. There are plenty of activities and options for things to do. Dinners were the best of our trip. The staff especially Manuel and Paulo were so helpful. We will be back!
Our junior suite is very good even though at full price I would have felt ripped off, fortunately we had a 3 night for 2 offer! Some aspects of the suite were definitely not 5 star! The bed was nothing short of uncomfortable, I was amazed that I had to climb in to a bath for a shower, even though the shower was excellent. The soap and shampoo dispensers seemed like they were bought from the local supermarket! The breakfast that was served at your table was plentiful but a bit the same, especially by the third morning. The restaurant for dinner was no better than average at a relatively high price. Needless to say, we only ate there on the first night even though other restaurants were up to 30 minute drive from the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the setting is stunning, a couple of kms up a dirt track. We quite enjoyed our stay even though the weather was unkind.…
Design Hotels can be a difficult value proposition in major urban centers with lots of competition from various hotel chains. However, in remote areas I often like out of the ordinary hotels and I don’t mind the more modest benefits when a hotel provides a different kind of experience. I stayed at Torre de Palma Wine Hotel in eastern Portugal not far from the Spanish border and had a fine stay – in my opinion this property has everything a Design Hotel is supposed to be and I can highly recommend this hotel. The hotel does not have many rooms to begin with (only 19) which makes it a relatively private property but the downside is less flexibility for upgrades to Marriott Bonvoy elites. The top room type is “master suite” and there is only one such room so for guests who want it, most likely they have to book it rather than hope for an upgrade which would be unlikely. The master suite looked great, full kitchen, fireplace, private pool which would be a major plus in the hot summer season (and view of stable + horses nearby), two full bathrooms one with shower one with bathtub, and overall a perfect fit for the Design brand given the style of the room throughout. The other room types do not have a kitchen nor do they have a private pool so for me it makes the master suite far more desirable, not to mention a lot more space indoors. Wifi worked well with speed of 25 Mbps however the router was closer to the living room so if using wifi from the bedroom, due to several layers of concrete walls including two bathrooms between the router and the bedroom, it made wifi reception weak. During our stay the hotel was less than 50% occupancy and was very quiet everywhere. However if the hotel was full, it is possible that at times this room type would feel not perfectly private because guests and staff could easily walk near our terrace and private pool, in fact some horses came drinking in our pool on occasion. The room had many windows so it would be necessary to draw the electric blinds down to ensure better privacy. The common areas of the hotel were nice including a pool in the middle of the winery, a wine tasting room, and guests could visit the wine making facilities. In September they also have extra activities during harvest which could be interesting. Breakfast seemed to be included in all cash rates at least for my dates; I guess for people who booked with points they would feel more of the sting of missing on the Bonvoy elite benefits. Breakfast was ok but not the strong point of the stay, the a la carte menu was pretty much what one could find in a traditional buffet and the eggs benedicts were so-so. Also I was moderately surprised that they did not offer sparkling wine for breakfast given the nature of the hotel. Overall we had a very relaxing stay and we are likely to return in the future. The property has enough to offer that I am generally not overly focused on elite benefits (unlike other hotel brands in the Marriott portfolio) when there is no competition around.…
We spent a birthday week end at the hotel. The service provided is outstanding, full of personalized attention and simplicity The 5 stars are really deserved. The hotel is fantastic, the location is unique
Perfect stay, the location, accommodation, staff, food and wine were outstanding. We booked for a Birthday overnight and were amazed by how wonderful it was, the hotel was beyond our expectations. One night was simply not long enough, we could have stayed for a month!
