Stayed at estalagem Lago Azul in October for 1 night. Although uncommon, weather was fantastic for this time of the year.
Stayed in a standard double room with river view and the view was absolutely fantastic. You could see the view from your bed. Room is comfortable, not very big but has a separate section with a sofa and closet. There is a phone, mini-fridge and TV in the room. Bathroom is modern. The rest is a bit outdated but still “comfy”.
The hotel has a nice pool plus there is a calm river that you can swim in. For a swim in the river better going 100 m to the left of the hotel and you’ll have a delimited swimming area with floaters that make it safer to swim (river is very deep – can’t see the bottom). I heard that off-season these floaters are removed.
Hotel also has a restaurant. A bit pricy: a modest meal for 2 with bottle of wine cost us 50 €. The alternative is to drive 5-6 km to the village of Ferreira do Zezere. Near the swimming area by the river you will also find a simple café/ restaurant but don’t think it is open at night.
The hotel also has a small playground, mini-golf, peddle boats, tennis court, an area inside where you can play pool and ping pong. Everything for free (except the peddle boats).
Besides the noise from the passing guest or from the occasion motorboat you will find youself in great silence and in perfect harmony with nature. Must say it is a very very relaxing and romantic place to be. At least this is how it was off season.
Like other reviews I confirm that the employees aren’t extremely nice but nice enough.
Breakfast is also ok. It had the basics: It included different kinds of bread, ham, cheese, scrambled eggs, sausage, some cereals including corn flakes, some canned fruits, some fresh fruit such as apples, yogurts, milk, coffee, etc…nothing special.
Bedroom not spotless clean...some dust behind the furniture but ok. Bathroom very clean.
Definitely the hotel is well worth for it’s cosyness, view and location.
