The Pousada is beautiful, and the lodging experience here was wonderful! Rooms are large with very high ceilings. Beds were comfortable, bathroom and shower were clean and well equipped with good water pressure. Very comfortable night's sleep in this quiet Pousada. The grounds and pool area are lovely. The pool is not heated, but provided a refreshing dip after a... More

The Pousada is a magical place to stay. We had a tower room (1 to a floor), with a balcony overlooking the property. It is a beautiful property. HOWEVER, do not eat there! Of six at our table, 4 became ill from the lamb (our Icelandic companion, a lamb expert, said it tasted "old"), one ordered a grilled vegetable plate,... More

It is a flat and empty landscape where this castle arises. The village next door doesn't help (there isn't anything to do). But the hotel is an oasis of history and luxury. The old structure is renovated and improved with modern architecture and interior decorating, with stunning results. The swimming pool is really great. The dining room is a marvel... More

Only 24 rooms. Luxury in this quiet and almost abandoned part of Alentejo. Suite 601, nicely appointed and spacious 42m2 room. Bit dark, but the big selling points are the two huge roof terraces offering a 360 degree panorama view over the landscape. Living in a castle tower with perfect sunsets and only the stars above.

We spent three nights here. It was hot, up to 41 Celsius. Had the opportunity to stay in the old castle. Great views from large deck. We spent most of the time beside the pool, jumping in to cool off. Nice cascade waterfall that ran into the pool, another place to cool off. The meals were excellent, simple, but delicious... More

Great historic building in the middle of nowhere! I enjoyed a great message and relaxation by a lovely pool. Food and service average but what a building! I'd recommend here if you happen to be in the area, not a huge amount else to do but a great stop-off point.

When you find a very special place like this, you almost hesitate to write the review because you don't want the whole world finding out about it...and then it's impossible to get a room ever again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada do Crato is localized right in Alentejo, and installed in the old Santa Maria de Flor da Rosa Monastery. D. Alvaro Goncalves Pereira, Grand Prior to the Hospital and also the father of D. Nuno Alvares Pereira, had the building erected in the fourteenth century. In this important gothic national monument, you feel the spirits of medieval times in every corner taking us back to the time of the building of a new nation. This luxury hotel in Crato is an example of the recovery of a Historic building into modern times without losing the monastic feel, calm and peaceful. Outside there is a pool with a sun terrace which allows their guests a refreshing and clam moment to reenergize whilst listening to the sounds of the Alentejo plains. The richness of the Alentejo cuisine cannot be missed, in the Pousada's restaurant where pezinhos de coentrada (a pork dish with coriander) Coentrada de Cacao (dogfish and coriander) or Ensopado de Borrego (lamb stew) are their highlights. These dishes accompanied by a beautiful wine of the Alentejo region, are the true pleasures of life. ... more   less
