The monastery itself is very beautiful, and I am aware is hard to conditionate it into a Hotel, but there is only one elevator, which has a sign that says can lift, I think it was 400 Kg, but couldnt lift 3 regular people (3x80 kg).... the people of the hotel tell you to use the elevator, even if you...

Old renovated convent of the Pousadas that dot Portugal. Extremely charming and relaxing place surrounded by nature. Exceptional level of every aspect that you have to assess in judging a structure: competence, professionalism and politeness of the staff, quality of life in the structure (sleep, food, services). Small round pool that allows a pleasant rest. Magic cloister with orange trees.... More

We spent two nights there, enjoying the very nice superior room (only difference with the standard room: a second window because it is a corner room). The conversion of the monastery into a hotel was extremely well done, with a perfect balance of old and modern. The food is ok without being extraordinary, and since this is Portugal, beware of...

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights whilst travelling around portugal. We both really liked the pousada. Spa was very nice, unfortunately it was closed for the rest of the time we were there but we took advantage of a massage on our first day. Other treatments are also provided, masseuse was very nice and professional. Breakfast... More

We were accommodated here for four nights as part of a group of 20 guests in late May following a SAGA mess up which resulted in cancelled rooms in another Posada. The setting and rooms are fabulous and the building beautifully restored and very grand, However, bearing in mind that many of the SAGA people were elderly and my husband... More

We picked this out from the internet, but it was a great choice. The Pousada was in fantastic shape, and clearly had been renovated with care and attention to detail.

My company (Expensify) goes overseas for a month every year, and this year we picked Portugal. We wanted to find a remote, castle-like location to work from for a week and after evaluating several locations, this was the obvious choice. We arrived with high expectations, and they were all exceeded in every way. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds well... More
