The Pousada of Faro, located in the famous 19th century Palace of Estoi, is a luxury hotel near Faro in Eastern Algarve

Situated only 10 kms from Faro city centre, the Pousada of Estoi is famous for its neo-Baroque and neo-Rococo features, including the decoration of its plaster ceilings considered the finest in the Algarve, two tea pavilions and wonderful French-inspired gardens adorned with many statues.

The luxurious Hotel Estoi has excellent facilities including a luxury spa and elegant outdoor and heated indoor swimming pools.

The Hotel Palacio De Estoi has 63 bedrooms, including 15 superior rooms and 3 suites. All rooms have balconies, en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, safe, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, telephone, Cable TV and internet access.

The historic village of Estoi is set away from the usual hustle of many areas of the Algarve but still within close proximity to the centre of Faro and the many wonderful beaches of the area.

This Pousada was invited to join the exclusive 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World' Group in January 2015 in recognition of its unique location, luxury accommodation and excellent customer service.

Staff at reception gave us a warm welcome on arrival. The room was very comfortable with luxurious touches. A kettle with complimentary tea and coffee (now common in many hotels) would have been greatly appreciated. The food was excellent and restaurant staff were both charming and efficient.

My first recommendation would be to generally disregard comments prior to 2014. It is clear that the hotel experienced some early teething problems - virtually all appear to us to have been excellently remedied judging by our short stay in January 2015. 7 friends got together for a special birthday celebration and overnight stay. On arrival our reception was impeccable - we were greeted at the entrance, door held open, and our luggage whisked away. Check-in excellent with extremely helpful and informative staff on the desk. Massively impressed with the (standard) room - very spacious and probably the best appointed we have ever stayed in - the beds and linens are pure luxury! We all enjoyed afternoon drinks on the outside terrace with wonderful views over the lovely gardens, and the perfect place to watch the sun go down. Dinner in the restaurant was a huge success. The staff were wonderful and very attentive, our meals excellently cooked and presented, and the chef kindly made a fresh celebration cake served with sparkling wine - both compliments of the hotel - most unexpected and appreciated. The breakfast selection was excellent - something to suit every appetite. All in all our stay was a complete success made extra special by the excellent standards of the staff and we would recommend the Estoi Palace Pousada to anyone who looks for top quality service and accommodation. Yes, some of the furniture in the public areas could be improved upon - yes we had to wait a short time to get served our bar drinks - but these were very minor inconveniences. We live just half an hour drive from Estoi, and plan to treat ourselves again during this summer! The occasional overnight stay being spoilt will be something to look forward to in the coming months.

We had 5 nights at the Pousada de Estoi. Fantastic stay. Lovely room with view down to the coast with Faro in the distance. Staff very helpful and beautifully restored palace. Great breakfast. Hope the work on the gardens will continue. Recommend a car to travel out to local towns and coast to get the full flavour of the Eastern Algarve.
