The best of Portuguese charm and quality.
This place is idyllic. Not only is the hotel historic and physically beautiful, the service was just out of this world. The concierge service I received was the best of all time for me, and the included breakfast was sensational. I really felt like I was a guest staying in a palace due to the atmosphere of the location, the top-notch service, and the high-quality of the room and the food. As this hotel is right next door to the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza, it can't help but feel stately and luxurious but the staff really make the place and they keep their promise that "YOU" are their priority, as their advertisements say. The town of Vila Vicosa itself was also lovely, and I had one of the best taste and value-for-price-meals ever at a restaurant in town (Cuco's) that was recommended to me by the hotel staff. It felt like I was in a dream staying here. Definitely visit the palace if you stay at this hotel or in this town. Highly recommended!

Beautiful pousada with tons of history
Just to let you know, this pousada's sign on the front states it is the Pousada D. Joao IV. The name of this pousada on hotels.com is Pousada Convento de Vila Vicosa. So don't think there are two pousadas at Vila Vicosa like I did. Also, it is located right next to the Ducal Palace. Our GPS had it a few streets over. I really loved this pousada, which is a converted convent. The grounds are gorgeous and include a pool. The staff was super friendly. They even hosted an egg hut for the children staying there over Easter. The pousada itself is modern, but they have kept the ambiance of the convent by leaving the religious paintings and other details. Our room was very tidy and quaint and included a tiny balcony. The bed in our room was really two twin beds set together, which is common in for European hotels. The complimentary breakfast was super yummy and consisted of eggs, various meats, cheeses, cereal, assorted pastries and fruit. One other thing, after you check in, you must forward your hotels.com confirmation email to their hotel, so they know you paid for the stay online. I really enjoyed my stay at this pousada & highly recommend it.

Old world with Portuguese charm
The kids loved to spend the night at this beautifully restored XVI century property that has already celebrated 500 years of existence! Even though the rooms are a bit "rustic" and the furniture worn and in need of some remodeling, the history associated with this old convent transported us back to the roots of Portugal and it certainly made up for all these minor comfort shortcomings we noticed. However, I ought to point out that the bed and linen were very comfortable and the furnace worked extremely well during the cold winter night we spent in Vila Viçosa. The staff was extremely courteous and at arrival the receptionist insisted on giving us a welcome tour of the property and pointed out to some interesting historical facts, showed us the beautiful frescos and took the time to educate us about the convent´s history. Our room rate came with a delicious breakfast that keep us full until mid-afternoon. We're looking forward to visit other Pousadas de Portugal in the near future and judging by this first impression, I´m sure we won´t be disappointed.

Good base for touring from quite small town
Only complaint -- as with all Pousadas -- no WiFi in room.
