The hotel Convento d'Alter is located in an ancient Franciscan convent of the late sixteenth century. Very well located at the village center. Our room is over the pool, and it has beautiful views to castle. Very friendy staff and an excellent restaurant.

Excellent location in typical village of Alter-do-chão (Alentejo) nearby the harass of Alter where you can enjoy one of the oldest stud breed - the portuguese royal Alter horses. Old monastery restaured with style. Very kind staff with a special remark to the director. Highly recommended.

Very good place, withe very hepful staff. Needs a little maintenance, but the place is very wel equipped and with good facilities. Alter do Chão is a typical Alenejo village, with the quietness and tradition remaining from the old days. Very weel located, withe good High Way access, that goes from Lisbon to Portalegre. Do recommend.

We stayed at this Hotel through a Lifecooler promotion and we had a really great vacation! We loved the place, our room was just by the pool, quiet and clean. The hotel staff is great, trully welcoming and did whatever they could to make us feel at home. The food was also very nice. It's worth the visit!

Wonderful setting in a small Portuguese town. Amazing building and large rooms , full of character Great staff With such a high standard set sadly the restaurant was a bit disappointing though breakfast was ok We were lucky to have the hotel almost to ourselves , the feeling of luxury might be tested if it was full

Together with my wife and 2 children, we spent 3 days here in June, 2013. We expected more, to be honest, as the old convent the hotel is inserted into offers a brilliant setup for a world class hotel. However, the place falls somewhere between the austerity of the old convent and the facilities of a modern hotel, thus failing... More

The town and the Convento building is beautiful, the service adequate and the price is right. The pool is a must in summer days. We use it often in our terracottajourneys bike tours and recommend it to all our friends.
