A converted 19th-century Rococo-style palace surrounded by gardens, Pousada Palacio de Estoi is in the "sleepy but attractive" (Lonely Planet) village of Estoi, which is 10km from Faro, the Algarve's capital. The hotel is divided into two parts, with the public areas located in the old palace and the guestrooms and spa in the modern wing.

The hotel has a health club and spa with a Turkish bath, sauna, tropical showers and a heated indoor pool with a whirlpool. The spa is open from 9am to 6pm and treatments include aroma facials, body massages and body wraps.The outdoor pool is open all year. 

Guests walk through the old palace kitchen to reach O Visconde restaurant. Traditional cuisine -- such as gazpacho, Portuguese rump steak and a cheese board -- is served alongside pork tenderloin with clams and vacuum-cooked cod fillets.

Superior Rooms are located on higher levels and have their own private balconies, with views of Faro city and the ocean. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.

Nearby activities include canoeing, go karting, horseback riding and boat rides.
