“Very good for a rest and spa time”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

The first thing to say, is that I was there taking advantage of a special promotion. So the cost/benefit was very very good.

The only thing I think is bad, it's the village where the hotel is. It's not a bad village, don't misundestand me, but the village lacks things to do, lacks restaurants or other activities. But if you have a car, then near by, you have some nice villages near the sea and some beaches.

The hotel is very good. The room was impressive. Clean. The tv signal was not very good. It has a great balcony with a nice view for the country site. The food was also very good and not to expensive. We had a dinner for 2 persons that cost €50 (with soup, the plate, wine and desert).

Overall I like it a lot to be there, but no more than 3 days, but because of the lack of things to do in the village.

An old building but well restored, which is a perfect place to spend your weekend or more days with family, alone or your mate. You see, there are so many activities as Spa, outdoor pool, tennis courts. The food tasteful. The rooms are big, modern and really comfortable. Sitting in the big balcony with the view to the pool is a wonderful way to enjoy your drink. Many facilities in reasonable prices.

A place to be with your family alone or with your girlfriend or wife. Old building well restored combined with contemporary, functional and comfortable buildings. The SPA is very good, there are areas to do a very pleasant ride, good tennis courts, great outdoor pool.
Great place for a weekend in the spring. Do not miss lunch or dinner at the hotel, exquisite and very pleasant space. After the meal, on afternoon or evening of spring/summer, very nice space outside to drink your coffee with a good drink and a good cigar.

Went for quick escape with my wife to Palace Hotel Monte Real, and worth it (a lot). The hotel is in Monte Real, a quiet village near Leiria. It´s perfect to relax and rest.
The rooms are very confortable and we got one facing the forest and the SPA building. Fresh air all day. Cosy and fancy decoration, modern amenities, confortable beds and pillows, a great bathroom with a window to the room (not everyone enjoys it), LCD TV with cable TV, aircon, etc.
The public areas are all spacious with modern decor. Piano-bar and restaurant are near by the reception while the breakfast room is on the lower floor. Overall the food is very good. Had a dinner and the breakfasts there and can only say good things.
The SPA is not in the main building but the walk down (and up again) is worth it. Indoor pool, steam, jacuzzi, turkish bath, massages, gym and treatments are available for an extra charge.
I do recommend this hotel as the price is not exaggerated for the service and quality.

Second time at this hotel and as good as the first time. Big and modern bedrooms, big balcony with a view to the outdoor swimming pool. Very good breakfast and lunch/dinner options (all in a very refined environment).
I was here doing thermal treatments and they go far and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Large and contemporary decor livingrooms.
Positives:
- minibar in room
- plenty of TV channels in room
- great outdoor swimming pool
- good and breakfasts
- kindness from the reception staff
- free tea and cookies in the main bar for those doing thermal treatments

Negatives:
- Spa a bit far from the hotel (500 metres down the road)
- no kettle in room
- room cleaning done very late throughout the day (sometimes at 6 in the afternoon)


All in all, a very good hotel at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with pool view, they are a bit bigger.

This hotel is probably the best one in the region where it is located (Leiria). The venue is very good - a completely renovated building that has kept its old charm outside but with a modern interior. The rooms are of average size and well-decorated and the bathrooms are very good. The staff is professional and friendly enough but for a 4* hotel & spa in such a charming venue it would be good to see some improvement in the quality of service provided.
Overall a good hotel with reasonable rates and one of the best options in a region with lack of 4* hotels like this one.

Beautiful palace has been magnificiently restaured, keeping all the originally charm. The decor is nice, refined and with good taste. The large dining room, the breakfast room and the bathrooms are really remarkable. Also the contemporany Spa, is very well integrated with the classical building and gardens
The palace grounds, are beautiful to walk around. We simply loved the palace feeling and would love to return on some summer days in order to enjoy the outside pool. This hotel is enchanting both for adults or children.
