We booked the last two rooms on the day we were travelling north from the Algarve. One of the main attractions was the restaurant, and there was no mention of a problem at the time of booking. Shortly before arriving we rang to explain we would be arriving later than the planned 6pm and were told, without any apology, that...

We spent one night here on a group tour of the Alentejo Coast. I wish we had stayed longer! Charming garden, pretty lawn and outdoor pool, lovely heated indoor pool, game room, small bar, and we ate two good meals during our stay, a dinner and breakfast. Rooms are modern and comfortable.

Hotel name wasn't found by the GPS, so we used the GPS coordinates and got right there .. It is pretty away from the main road or villages, and while they do serve a Tasting menu dinner, if you would like eating something specific make sure you do it at one of the villages on your way. Reception welcome was...

Finding this place is not easy, but with a GPS and a map, you'll get there eventually. The rooms are comfortable.

Excellent hotel. You feel like if you were home. The staff is very helpful and they are very happy in support you with anything. It is a very calm hotel (only 10 rooms) in a great location in the middle of Alentejo-Portugal. The restaurant serve only dinner and breakfast but they can support the lunch with snacks and sandwiches in...

We stayed one night in early January. Make sure you use the GPS coordinates to find the hotel! Hosts were charming and willing to help. Room was very special, boutique style, single storey rooms with own outdoor space and peaceful views. The complex has been planned and built with great care and use of the available terrain. Pool looked inviting,...

First class staff, very helpful. The hotel is difficult to find, especially if you are not coming from Santiago. There is only a blue rural hotel sign in that direction. Dinner was good...lots of courses, but it would have been improved with fewer courses of a higher quality. This is a fine location, however for more than one evening having...

We haven't left yet, and we're already missing this. This feeling is a direct result of the way we were welcomed here. The care for every detail by the staff makes for an excelent stay and service.

The Hotel Monte Xisto is only 15 Minutes from Santiago de Cacém and just outside the small town of Vale das Éguas but this town was not on our Michelin map nor was it recognized by our GPS.
