We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this historical building with modern rooms and restaurant.
The girl that managed the breakfast service singelhandedly ensured that everything was replenished and tables set with fresh linens, all with a smile on her face, it made a pleasant start to the day.
The grounds are enormous, nice to wander, the pool was clean and well maintained.
We thoroughly recommend!

After visiting 93 paradores, this one was the best. We never finded a museum, a very nice french garden, a good restaurant and a very good crew in one hotel! Amasing.

A Parador in Portugal - wonderful. This historic manor house has a vineyard and they make own wines and cheese which are all super. I particularly loved their white wine. We booked a private wine tasting with some tapas - delicious and special. Good restaurant and dinner. Very comfortable and relaxing. Lovely gardens and welcome pool.

Very good reception and lovely gardens. Rooms quite small in comparison with others we've stayed in but like the area so will probably return

Fabulous place to explore, step back in time it's like a lost world, must be seen to be believed.

As we have been all 88 paradors in the Iberian Peninsula (included Puerto Lumbreras) we also wanted to visit the new parador in Portugal. This is a very beautiful parador in beautiful surroundings. The rooms were nice and spacious. The staff friendly and helpful. The menu of the restaurant could have been better - especially the choice of main courses. Our bathroom was crawling with ants and this is a problem that they have to do something about.

The main building is really beautiful but this not enough to compensate our very disappointing experience:
restaurant food = poor quality & very high price
restaurant service is very very very long
hotel staff take rest at the swimming pool bar, discussing all afternoon long

This hotel was supposed to be the highest level (5*) of our stay in Portugal but we really regret the high costs of our stay.

The main building is really beautiful but not enough to compensate our very disappointing experience:
except for 1st welcome, staff has no style (sometimes even unpleasant)(especially restaurant)
very few rooms are correct (no view, small windows, location outside of main building, etc.)
swimming pool is small without nice equipments around it
playing room = only chess game with a lot of missing pièces..
paradores menu never changes,
