We view Hotel Cinquentenário as a lifetime effort, which didn’t result from lighthearted, peaceful moments, but from a constant and devoted struggle of two people who believe in unity and with faith in God have grown up amidst intense teamwork.
In the aftermath of a turbulent and tough youth, the owners managed to buy a property in 1965, where the first hotel in Fátima was already in place: the Hotel Nossa Senhora do Rosário, which at that time was already abandoned and was demolished to make room for the current building of Hotel Cinquentenário. At the same time, they started an ancillary business (a shop), from which they also raised capital to complete the construction of the guest house. It was inaugurated in 1967, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Apparitions of Our Lady, hence the name adopted for the guest house. That’s how Pensão Cinquentenário came into existence.
During its course of existence, mainly devoted to host the pilgrim, the family-run and family-owned property that values the thoughtful service quality it has always sought to defend, has undergone several renovation and extension works. It opened with 42 rooms and nowadays there are 202 rooms. The hotel has acquired different classifications on the part of Direção Geral de Turismo, currently Turismo de Portugal, thanks to the several improvements made to it.
"Quitting is dying"
However, this lifelong effort is worth noting and also thinking, when one of the owners tells us that “ If we stand still, we will die!”
Therefore, the hotel invested in another business, a congress centre, in order to meet other motivations and market segments. Always striving to provide moments of tranquility and comfort, Hotel Cinquentenário seeks to pass on the art of wellness and hospitality to those who come there.
To be at the service of the customer in order to achieve his satisfaction and exceed his expectations, relying on the effort and dedication of an active and commited work team.
The art of wellness and hospitality. We focus attention on quality and on a continuous improvement process. We believe in principles and values that prioritize ethics, transparency and honesty.
