  • Great place to stay before heading to the airport. The location is fantastic, with amazing views of Santarem. The castle and grounds are fun to explore. The check-in process was smooth and comfortable with plush armchairs to sit in. Parts of the hotel felt ancient (in a good way) and the room was nice, with double doors which made it so I never heard my neighbors coming / going from their rooms. The dinner was a bit pricey, but quite delicious. I recommend the goat cheese, honey, walnut, puff pastry appetizer. Breakfast was also quite tasty with a wide variety of options. Highly recommended.
  • Tourist trap. Price of the same drink changed from 6.5€ to 10€ in 4 days. Measurered drinks under the correct amount.
