what a great pousada in central Portugal. makes a great stop if traveling from the north to the Algarve. i certainly wish that time allowed a longer stay. the village is quite small and the hotel is surrounded by farm land. the building was originally a monastery in the 1400's. it is a national monument. stone walls, high ceilings, and very atmospheric. property includes a small museum & panels with building history. staff at check in was so welcoming. the desk man insisted on carrying our bags not only into the hotel, but to our room on the second floor. miraculously there is an elevator. the hotel feels huge due to the many lounging areas for guests and the maze of passages. lovingly cared for grounds and a pool prefect for relaxing. furnishings are modern. also a spa we did not visit. our room was a superior historic room with a canopied double bed, two chairs, and a desk. the bath was quite large with double sink marble counter and large shower. nice amenities including, robe, slippers and lotion. large dining room for dinner and a well done breakfast spread. our dinner was hit and miss as most dishes had some type of issue we disliked-overcooked pasta and shrimp, soggy & barely warm tempura beans, etc. if you need it wi-fi was strong. very quiet at night and outdoor lighting creates a beautiful atmosphere. but if you prefer to sleep in, be prepared for the roosters, etc. to wake you early. we feel lucky to have found such a splendid place and highly recommend it.

Fantastic surprise! We have arrived to Crato on our way back to Lisbon from north of Portugal. We were pleasantly surprised how beautifully the place done. The interaction between old and new was outstanding. Big rooms beautiful pool and great food. Great value for money. We will definitely get back there again.

Great hotel and all the staff were very kind and helpful, but most especially Mr Joao (Saraiva ?) who was there when we checked in and was most helpful to us in how to use our Pestana Pousada Luxury voucher. Later he also contacted the Pousada Serra da Estrela where we would be staying next, to check for us if there was any problem due to forest fires. He was always present in the afternoon and evening and we could see that he was very attentive to all the guests' needs.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting our son in the area, the standard room we were offered was up quite a few flights of stairs,and had no windows you could open, we were then shown a room which was on a lower level but was an additional 30 euros a night, the food was very nice at the Pousada, but it's location is remote, I wonder why this is a leasding Pousada as the one in Vila Vicosa. Is much nicer, ok stay but would not return

A unique location, building and experience. A perfect getaway to reflect on life's slower pleasures, relax and enjoy good company within a historic context. The approach to the Pousada Mosteiro do Crato (Flor da Rosa) was extraordinary, a 14th century stone castle surrounded by the hot Alentejo landscape.

Relaxing stay in an old refurbished monastery with nice garden and pool. The monastery is an impressive historic building, we booked a classic charming room with view on the fields. Small SPA available for guests (sauna, hammam, whirlpool, massages…).

Our stay at Pousada Mosteiro dao Crato, was everything we were hoping for. Imagine wondering around portions of a medieval castle, that you can comftorably stay at. The room had a wonderful picture window looking out to the countryside. The food was great, and of course the staff's hospitality was second to none.

The first impression of the Pousada is good. However, we went to the bar for a drink. No barman was there. The receptionist told us that she would send the bartender to assist us. We waited for almost 45 minutes and since no one came to serve us we decided to leave. The choice of drinks displayed was very limited for such a property.

On our way from Serra da Estrela to Algarve, we stayed at Pousada Mosteiro do Crato. First of all the property is rather easy to find due to proper signs arriving at Flor da Rosa. Then we find a large parking with easy access. The long way from the parking to the main entrance of the Pousada is a bit long but OK. Then starts a bit of the problem with the multiple step of stairs we had to cross with very heavy luggage to reach the lobby of the Pousada. Anticipating the struggle, we went to the lobby to get help which was provided immediately by a very nice gentleman. We had booked the master suite. Another very kind person took us to our suite handling all our luggage in a very efficient way. The first impression of the room was good. However, the second impression was that the large bathroom would need to be refurbished. We went then to the bar for a drink. No barman was there. We had to call someone at the reception. The choice of drinks was very limited for such a property; for example, there was no way to have a cocktail. After a dinner with rather dull food, we went to bed. Then around 10:00 pm, a dog in the nearby farm started to bark until midnight and began again around 6:00 am. In addition, the bells of the church nearby rang every half hour the whole night. In the morning, we were very disappointed with the breakfast especially some ingredients that were not properly refrigerated. Overall this property has a lot of charm (chapel, museum, pool) but the hotel part of it could be handled in a better way and some areas require refurbishing. The personnel was very nice. But the management should consider some changes.
