We arrived at Hotel Rural Quinta dos Poetas on NYE 2012 and stayed for two nights. It was hard to find the hotel; we mistakenly relied on our GPS to get us to the hotel (which it didn't), so ask the hotel for directions or map out the directions beforehand. You definitely need a car at this hotel because there's not much within walking distance.

We had previously exchanged email corrrespondences with the staff to book NYE dinner at the hotel restaurant (the hotel promptly responds to emails). We were so pleased by the NYE dinner. The hotel restaurant is a nice 5 minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant staff was so welcoming; the chef came out to speak with us throughout our meal and even gave us a glass of port after dessert. We felt like we were celebrating with our family. The food was very good (5 course meal for approximately 50-60 euros), with constant wine and water service. The restaurant also accommodated our toddler son (they had a high chair and changing table in the bathroom).

The hotel grounds are wonderful; there is a walking trail around the back grounds of the property, two play areas for children, a pool, and putt putt /golfing area.

The hotel itself is modest but inviting. Our room (facing the front of the hotel) was a little small compared to our other hotel rooms in Portugal, but was sufficient. Room was simply decorated but very clean. Wifi is limited to the lobby area only. Breakfast was good -- cheese, fruit, cereals, breads, cakes, juices, yogurt, and coffee.

Hotel management was always present and willing to help, and I was truly impressed that every time I was in the lobby I saw the owners.

We found our stay at this hotel a refreshing break from the hotels we stayed at in Lagos and Lisbon. Highly recommend this hotel for those looking for a little R&R and a change of scenery from the standard hotel.

What can i say, we've stayed in some of the best hotels world wide and yes when you've found this one your in for a real treat. Quiet, peaceful, so friendly, the owner is always on hand. The rooms are superb. If we had paid twice the price we wouldn't have questioned it. Its fantastc value, ultra clean, longing to return asap, already booked next years flight. One micro mini moan, the bed although massive was a little too hard for me, please don't that influence you though

Room Tip: dont quibble about overlooking the pool area the back of the hotel is much cooler

We stayed two nights in this hotel. It is slightly difficult to find but well worth the effort.
It is a small hotel in the middle of the countryside and less than 30 minutes from Faro airport, making it ideal for late flights into the Algarve or early flights out.
Nice pool area with plenty of sun loungers.
It has a wonderful restaurant serving excellent prepared meals at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth going to the hotel for the food alone.
My only complaint is that the beds are too hard. They are good quality but too firm for my weary body.

The hotel is really in the middle of nowhere and you need transport to make the most of your holiday. Once you find the hotel it is excellent in every way. The whole hotel is very clean, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food is great!
Being isolated suited us as we prefer the countryside to the hustle and bustle of large towns.
The grounds are spacious with plenty of seats around so you could relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
What finally sold the hotel to us is they catered for my wife's gluten intolerance. This made our stay much more relaxing. On the subject of food, the restaurant was a bit of a trek away being on the opposite side of the grounds. The walk was well worthwhile as the food offered was excellent. You could go a la carte or choose the set menu, which consisted of three courses for a very reasonable price. The meal was waiter served, much better than the usual buffet service that is offered elsewhere.
I would unconditionally recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for 8 days for our friend's Golden Wedding Anniversary party as did many of the other party guests. It is a very friendly family run hotel in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Breakfast was very good with lovely fresh fruit, cereals, fresh rolls, continental breakfast meat and cheese etc and hot breakfast cooked on request. The restaurant food may not be cheap but is excellent quality and excellent value for money. The location is in the country but central for lots of lovely places to visit with a car. Staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful but the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. I cannot praise the hotel enough and would highly recommend it.

This well-maintained property feels like it's nearly new, and has all the amenities one might want (incl. free WiFi). Lovely pool, beautiful, large grounds for a stroll, excellent restaurant, generous and good breakfast included with internet booking, all for a very reasonable price. The staff are not merely helpful, but eager to help. N.B., not wheelchair accessible.
