A stay to be repeated again and again!
Reviewed 2 June, 2021
We had an excellent stay at this hotel a couple of weeks ago. The junior suite we stayed in was so spacious and comfortable! Everything worked well in the room. There was a minibar fridge that we could use (not stocked with minibar items at the moment as part of the ongoing hygiene measures), a kettle and sachets of tea. I would, however, advise the hotel management to apply the same hygiene principles to the drink sachets as they did with the minibar items. Remove them and only give these to the guests upon request. Our tea sachets looked crumpled and well-handled so we didn’t touch them.
Depending on the number of guests, breakfast was either a buffet or a pre-ordered meal. We had the opportunity to experience both! Buffet breakfast was great with a lot of variety. There were scrambled eggs, crispy bacon slices, a variety of cheeses and ham, cereals, nuts, yoghurt, hot drinks, vegan packet drinks, different homemade jams, a variety of delicious pastries, different types of fresh bread and freshly sliced fruits (honey dew, kiwi, papaya, orange, etc.). The buffet breakfast was served by the staff. No self-service and no re-using of already used plates for hygiene reasons. Every time we wanted a second serve, the staff would serve the food on a clean plate. This was really such a good move to avoid the serving tongs/ladles coming into contact with used plates and increasing the risk of food cross-contamination!! The pre-ordered breakfast was also very good as it had the same items for guests to order (from a menu list) for breakfast the following day.
Location wise, the hotel is around 7 minutes walk from the Sanctuary. The Fátima bus station is a 3-minute walk away and fast food outlets Burger King and McDonald’s are nearby. There is also a Pingo Doce supermarket in the area.
The hotel is surrounded by beautiful grounds and a lush, stunning garden that is well worth exploring! There are ample free parking spaces on the grounds. The hotel also has two on-site chapels with the presence of the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. The larger chapel is absolutely stunning!! Sunday Masses (9.00 a.m.) are said here. The other chapel is smaller and very pretty and is used for daily Masses. To be able to attend daily Mass (7.20 a.m. on weekdays) was the highlight for us! Masses were beautiful and spiritually uplifting.
Last but not least, the staff! They were exemplary (receptionists, breakfast staff, etc.)! Very efficient, polite, warm and friendly and taking the hygiene measures seriously. My card was wiped with a disinfectant wipe before being handed back to me! I was also given a disinfected pen with which to sign a form! Very nicely done!
A beautiful hotel with beautiful chapels, beautiful grounds and beautiful people! Very peaceful and with a good ambience. It is especially good for personal self-retreats. Would stay here again without any hesitation. Highly recommended!
If staying in a junior suite with a glass divide between the room and the bathroom, bring along a pair of eyeshades because if you sleep on the side of the bed nearest this glass divide, you will be awakened by the light every time your partner goes to the bathroom! :) The blinds of the glass divide don’t block out the bathroom light adequately, unfortunately.
Excelente estadia, recomendo!

Sem dúvida é um ótimo hotel, uma fachada exterior bastante bonita com um conceito conventual.
Tenho a apontar os quartos, são bastante agradáveis, cómodos e bonitos, a decoração está no ponto.
Infelizmente a nível do pequeno almoço achei que tinha pouca variedade.
Fim-de-semana com os pais em Fátima!

Escolhi este hotel, essencialmente, pela qualidade da cama extra. Queríamos um quarto triplo e, normalmente, a qualidade da terceira cama fica sempre muito a desejar.
Não só a cama extra era excecional, como o hotel em si - áreas comuns, quarto, casa-de-banho, pequeno-almoço em buffet que tinha tudo o que precisávamos elevaram a nossa satisfação ao máximo.
Caso venham em família, super recomendo!!
Bez szalu ale ok
