Pros: Great location with a nice view, cheap rental of a kayak and very nice hotel. Everything was new and clean. Would stay longer, but all rooms were booked.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: A very good room overlooking the river and a short walk to the old town. Plenty of free parking close to the hotel and quite a good breakfast buffet make this very good value.
Cons: Some more fresh fruit at breakfast would have been good.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good and so was the bar and pool. The best part of this was the girl (Joyce) who worked at the reception desk. We couldn't get our GPS to work and she was able to get it up and running for us. I think we would still be driving around in Portugal looking for our car rental return location if it wasn't for Joyce!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. Very professional staff, extremely helpful, location outstanding, exceeded expectations
6,3 Good
Pros: Large and comfortable room, we chose a suite, good value for money and good breakfast. Interesting historic area to walk around during the day but not much happening in the area in the evening.
Cons: Staff were efficient but not as friendly as some other hotels we've stayed at. We were in a downstairs room and the corridor lighting didn't work and there was no external lighting. Had to use the torch on my phone to get to the room. In the morning, there were 2 dead cockroaches in the corridor.

Meals are made with natural and organic products. We also serve vegetarian dishes. There are 5 twin-rooms with private bath-room and central heating.

Pros: Francois was a fabulous host. He was so calm, helpful, interesting & made our stay wonderful. The setting is so peaceful, tranquil & quiet. We loved it, wish we'd stayed longer & would definitely return! The property is very secluded so a car & arriving in daylight would be recommended. Everything was spotless, refreshing pool & breakfast lovely simple local produce. Francois has done amazing things to his land & is quite an inspiration. We loved the honey from his beehives & essential oils from the plants/trees that he also produces. You can take the long walk down the road (he built!) to the river/water supply & take a swim. This is a simple, calm & understated B&B in the middle of the country.........so yes down dirt tracks with wildlife! This all adds to it's character & charm. Our family thank you Francois & we hope to see you again in the future!
Cons: -
9,5 Excellent
Pros: A truly peaceful place with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and made our stay an excellent experience. Don't expect a load of facilities, this isn't a high rise apartment block. But enjoy the breakfast, wander around the paths leading to the river and make sure you take a dip in the swimming pool where you can float amongst hills and sky. If you're the sort of person who doesn't like the adventure of driving down a 4 kilometer dirt road (with wonderful views all round) then Herdade de Vale Covo isn't for you: but if you enjoy wild flowers, birds and complete relaxation in peaceful surroundings then don't miss it!
Cons: Nothing ....

Pros: A little paradise but, thank god, not for everybody
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect for getting away from it all, a real off the beaten track retreat. The bumpy, dusty track to the house is well worth it. The house stands high surrounded by the slopes that are farmed for aromatic herbs and shrubs - lavendar, rock roses, fennel, rosemary, thyme. When we were there in mid May a lot of the herbs and wild flowers were in full bloom. (Make sure you remember your anti-histamines if you get hay fever.) Plenty of uninterrupted tracks for walking, some quite steep so you get a good work out whilst enjoying the views. Great if you're into wildlife photography, plenty of butterflies attracted to the herbs as well as quite a number of birds. You might want to stock up on picnic stuff at the supermarket before heading into the hills, the nearest one is at Mertola (about 12km). Francois made us feel very welcome and at home, taking time to show us the distillation process etc. We are already thinking about our next visit.

Pros: Don't rely on previous reviews because the place has new owners, they are very gentle and trying to make the place better. The room was cozy, the street so quiet and they gave us a very good adress for dinner. I can only recommend it especially since it is very affordable. Mertola is a very nice town by the way.

Pros: Mr Carlos (host) was very friendly and informative, lovely traditional room, great location.
Cons: Limited parking
8,8 Excellent
Pros: It is an interesting old house with courtyard and good public rooms. The room was large and the bathroom nice with plenty of hot water. The room heat was adequate, but the extra blanket provided was welcome. Outside sitting area, inside sofas, a library in the main hall, all very charming. The bed was comfortable and Carlos, the owner, very friendly. A good experience in a quirky, old big house with nice spaces. Parking very close and free of charge. The house is inside the old village and defensive wall... Very quaint and the cobble-stone alleys are a treat. Carlos advised a restaurant, which was good food at great prices and a server that spoke excellent English.
Cons: Had to call the owner from outside the door, but not too much of a problem, as he was there very quickly. He warned me that breakfast would be simple, as he had an appointment the next morning. The breakfast was ok, nice variety of things to eat...except for the coffee.! My suggestion is an investment in a coffee-machine or a microwave. The brew was cold, by the time I got to the table. The whole village must be choking with visitors in high season.! I would avoid it then, if possible.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This is a classy small hotel that feels like a stylish private house. It's right at the quiet far end of this marvellous little town, with great views if you take an upstairs room. There's a small sun terrace, a charming sitting room, antique furniture that gives the place a live-in feel, and a super communicator of a cat called Sebastian. Host Carlos will welcome you with his excellent English and vast knowledge of Mertola and roundabout.

Pros: A beautifully decorated old house, full of character, in the walled historic centre of Mertola. Bedroom was comfortable and spacious and there is a nice common room as well. The owner Carlos was exceptionally friendly and engaging, especially in getting me set up with some local activities/tours. The breakfast (which is in addition to the room price) is excellent and bigger than others I had in Portugal.

Pros: Beautiful old building in the old town - a fascinating house with inner courtyard and much bigger than it looks from the outside.

Pros: All the wonderful help from Claudia. Home away from home. Excellent information about the area. Plenty to do for our 2-3 days. Loved swimming in Guadiana River on the hot days.
Cons: Village dogs barking.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: Although out in the countryside, this is a really good place to stay. It is not far from Mertola which is well worth exploring and so are other parts of the area. We had a very comfortable stay including an excellent evening meal.
7,5 Good
Pros: Claudia is a very nice host, trying to make your stay very pleasant The rooms are very nice and well equipped Good breakfast and dinner
5,5 Okay
Pros: Very clean. Relatively close to the park where we wanted to hike. Hostess was friendly and provided some useful, local information on the natural areas nearby.
Cons: Although very clean and recently renovated, the unit was extremely dark. Darkly painted walls, very low lighting, even in the bathroom, small window. Probably better for younger guests or in the heat of mid summer. No real attempt to provide breakfast due to our admittedly restricted diet - no gluten and vegetarian.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: So peaceful. Beautiful backyard. Very friendly people. Very attractive and comfortable. Nice small intimate place meeting other travelers.
Cons: The dog barking
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Claudia is a wonderful hostess. Great info on local hiking, birding, Mertola. Recommended an excellent restaurant for us. Told us about local history. Such a peaceful place to stay and we were lucky enough to visit while rock roses were blooming. So beautiful. Nice breakfast too.
5,5 Okay
Pros: A friendly host who received us with a helping hand and hints and tips for our day trips.
Cons: The towels were a bit smelly and didn't dry at all, besides they didn't get changed, which would be okay if they'd have dried. We are sure though if we'd have asked Claudia would have given us new towels. The room was quite cold, despite the heater we were given, but that surely is an advantage in hotter times.

Pros: - air conditioning / heating - fireplace in the living room - friendly staff
Cons: - wifi didn’t work - only Backpacker there, rest just old people - the bathroom is a scandal!! No soap for the hands, tiny, dark and freezing cold! Very disappointed! - staff was trying, but speaks 0 English...
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Very nice host , Nelson. Quiet place and our kids thougt it was exciting.
Cons: The adress was incorrect so we went to wrong place at first.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Ease of check-in, just 800 m from bus station in the center, fire in the fireplace in the evening, nice kitchen, very comfortable bed, powerful Wi-Fi, thoughtful touches, quick assistance on the phone concerning location/check-in procedure. Just pop into the restaurant across the road and they will take care of you from there. Surprising amount of things to see in the town, including archeological sites and small museums, nature walks right nearby.
Cons: A little confusing messages about deposits and bank transfers for payment… For the “dorm“, I simply checked in and paid the normal way, everything was smooth. I think istaff members live in quarters on the ground floor and were kind of yelling at each other about something for quite a while in the evening… Not a big deal but sitting on the sofa in front of the fire in the charming lounge and having this noise was a bit of a contrast.
9,3 Excellent
Pros: The view was amazing and the room very comfortabel.
Cons: What we found a bit of a pity is that we didn’t meet any of the people owning or working here. There is no reception basically. The restaurant/bar wasn’t open the time we were there, closed on Monday and Tuesday. The bathroom was basic equipped, towels and toilet paper, no soap nor shampoo.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Nice room, good restaurant opposite guesthouse. Hiking track behind.
Cons: Wobbly mattress.
6,8 Good
Pros: Nice room when we got the double room we had asked for at reservation (got it on the second day only). Staff helpful, especially the manager at the restaurant when he knew we had been messed up with the rooms. He couldn’t do enough to make us happy (good local restaurant, by the way!) Nice to have access to a kitchen to make your own breakfast or breakfast can be bought. Lovely open fireplace.
Cons: We had reserved a double room for 2 nights. It took over 50 minutes to realise that the booking had not worked. So we were given a small twin room on the first night and the double room on the 2nd night which was much larger and better, reception the bathroom floor was full of hair and dirty (photos taken if needed)
8,3 Excellent
Pros: the view is fantastic - also for fotographers! but therefore you have to walk a while to reach the town. the recommendmends of our lady from the checkin were really good. everything looked quite new and the style of the enterieur was lovely. there were brochures of the region and the town in many different languages like german, french, spanisch etc!
Cons: very thin walls - but later in the night it is completely still, so you can sleep very well!
