    Testimonials

    3 testimonials for POUSADA DE ALIJO – HOTEL ALIJO

    1. Much higher than 8.3! Great pousada.

      Susanna and staff were excellent – helpful, informative, and very professional.

      Our three days were very nice. Delicious food, nice pool, and good running track in the adjacent pleasant public park.

    2. The warm welcome from all the pousada staff made our autumn visit 2010 very special and the helpful suggestions for visiting places of tourist interest ensured that our weeks stay was excellent. It is a pousada and a region of spectacualr scenery which we will visit again, perhaps during the grape harvest. Friends are already enjoying our photos.

    3. We loved everything about this Pousada in Alijo and hope to return next year. The Breakfast Manageress was particularly efficient and effective. The surrounding countryside is stunning.
