Couldn't have chosen a better place to relax for a weekend. Impeccable rooms, incredible staff and a restaurant that has become one of my favourite restaurants anywhere! And on top of all that, it is a Lyoness partner. Couldn't have asked for more, massive congratulations to all!!

Beautifull surroundings, Nice and clean design, confy and spacious suites, excellent service, great outdoor and indoor swiming pools, free bikes and very tasty and varied breakfast...what more can you ask for to relax for a couple of days ir even a week? Besides, just 7km from Évora The wonderfull Unesco worldheritage city. When in town try The O Gremio restaurant!

The quiet weekend retreat in the middle of nowhere with Spa turned out a joke.

On the first night management thought it was a good idea to have a war game with teenagers running around until just after midnight outside the suites, without prior warning - we (perplexed!) called reception at 11.30pm to ask if they knew there was a full blown play war outside with shouting, screams and sirens - they could not even tell us when it would end...
I´m Portuguese and I´m used to rules being bent a little but this felt like we were on candid camera.

They refunded the night, but to be honest if I go 200km to a 4 star Spa hotel in the country for the weekend I´m not really looking for a discount - I wan´t peace and quiet.

The Spa is not closed off to kids - contrary to hotel print - and the screams of toddlers in the pool just made us give up on the second day.

Does make you wonder if the owner had not had 70% E.U. (taxpayer) funding for the project he might be a bit more careful with brand management.

I just regret that a Portuguese from Lisbon, with just one review had to make it in English. If you make it in Portuguese maybe I could answer you better.
We hope to see you soon so that we can change your opinion.
There are some reviews, made with god knows what purpose, that I have no skills to answer.

The Alentejo region is a lovely region, but this hotel totally misses the local spirit. The rooms are a group of unusual villas with a inner patio and only with inside windows (towards inner patio). The rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast was good, but I couldn't feel really relaxed and I expect it from a 4 starts resort.

I agree with you when you say Alentejo is a lovely region with a lot of interesting natural and historical places to go, nice people to meet, wonderful restaurants to experience new tastes and textures.
I feel glad that you find that "The rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast was good", because that is what really drives us to work.
As to "The rooms are a group of unusual villas with a inner patio and only with inside windows (towards inner patio)" I have to agree also, because the spirit of it is precisely that you stay with comfort and privacy.
The suites are disposed in a way that each guest feel like if he has his own backyard to relax and enjoy the pleasures of the countryside.
We hope our guests don´t feel like they are on a 4 star hotel, but rather on a 5 star resort, where design meets tradition and where countryside is comfortable and near town.
We expect and try in every way to please our guests, but, there will always be some that would rather be else were. We don´t give up, so we expect another visit from you, and we are sure that next time you´ll be able to catch the spirit of Ecorkhotel.

It is 7km from Evora city. Very quiet place. You need a car to get to Evora...or a taxi! It is not a building full of rooms but a group of unfamiliar houses/villas with a room, a bathroom, a living room and a small patio. Some have a small kitchen. Be sure to choose the type of bathroom you prefer as they have some with bathtubs and some with only cabin shower. You can also choose 2 double bed or an almost king size bed. The heating system in the villas is great. Very simple decoration but nice, comfortable and cozy. The restaurant CARDO is great and breakfast is very good with all kinds of international food but also full of jams and cheese from the region. The staff is amazing. They do everything possible for you to have a perfect stay. I just wish that next time they have 2 people giving massage in the SPA, because we wanted a double massage and we couldn't have it... A great place to relax and enjoy the amazing Alentejo region!

Room Tip: Choose the bathroom type you prefer and the bed type.

I've stayed in this hotel for a couple of days to celebrate my birthday. The hotel is fabulous, decoration simple and suites are very comfortable. Staff's attention towards the customers is awesome and made me feel very relaxing and apt to enjoy my stay freeling. "Cardo" Restaurant was my choice for my birthday dinner and all I can say is that it was an amazing experience, in terms of food tasting as well as a quite delight in terms of flavour due to the Cheff's criativity. I strongly recomend this calm, peaceful and amazing hotel for some relaxing days! I'm sure I will spend some more days there again!!!

Your review in few words, described our hotel in a way that we thought but never could express. So we are please to know we could lead you to feel what we wanted everyone to feel.
"Very modern but somehow traditional" is, i´m sure, the how I also would describe the Ecorkhotel if my english were better.

Kind Regards

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The 'Ecorkhotel' in Portugal is Inspired by Cork and Medieval Villages Published: Dec 20, 2013 • References: dezeen Taking inspiration from the structure of medieval villages in Alentejo in the South-Central region of Portugal, "where it was common to find a main complex or castle, and several white buildings around it," according to the project's site, the 'Ecorkhotel' was designed by Portuguese architect Jose Carlos Cruz. The imposing structure contains a restaurant, a recreational complex fitted with up to 56 hotel suites in the form of bungalows. The hotel is located in Portugal's Alentejo region and is completely covered in cork. On the reason why Cruz decided to use cork as the main component in the construction of the hotel, he says, "[o]ne of our intentions was to promote cork as a cladding material, it's a good thermal insulator and is also recyclable." The two story recreational complex incorporates conference rooms, an indoor swimming pool, a gym and spa facilities with views of the Alentejo landscape. ... more   less
