PROS: This hotel is a beautiful example of faded Baroque elegance combined with sleek, modern guest rooms. Overall, we enjoyed our 2-night stay here. The reception and restaurant staff were unfailingly helpful, friendly & courteous. The dining room (O Visconde) served a truly awesome breakfast buffet and offers an excellent dinner menu with a solid wine list. CONS: 1) Unless you have rented a car, this is truly a "destination hotel" as it is located in a very rural/suburban area north of Faro. Visiting the ruins of an ancient Roman villa at Milreu (about 1KM away), sunbathing by the beautiful pool, or strolling through the Palacio gardens or the small town of Estoi are the only things to do without a vehicle. 2) The beds are truly TERRIBLE - hard as boards. I named our bed the Bed of Pain because it gave me such terrific backaches each morning. Overall, the Palacio Estoi is a good choice as a base of operations for sightseeing & touring the Eastern Algarve or as a destination if you're simply looking for a few days of peace & quiet.

Short stay in Estoi
The Palacio is an exquisite place to stay. The ambience, the views are all amazing and definitely worth another visit. Our room was a standard room, which was quite adequate and comfortable for a 2 night stay. If we had been staying longer, we might have booked a superior room. As it was, the room was large, comfortable beautifully kept. The staff were exceptional! From check in to departure.Everyone was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
