This was our first time in a Pousada and I can see why people get hooked - the history and atmosphere is fantastic, you really got a feeling for what it was like as a working convent - it was a little bit of a shame there wasnt any of the original 'cells' to see as that would have been... More

This Pousada has been restored beautifully. All of the gorgeous cloisters are white and sunny. There are lots of elegant public rooms for relaxing. The bedrooms are very nice. The town of Beja is fun and pretty to explore on foot And the Pousada is very well located.

Converted from a convent, large, well appointed room. Breakfast spread very generous and attended by polite efficient staff. Couple of drawbacks: check whether your room is double or twin, we were disappointed. Also the wifi was dodgy and only available in reception.

The Pousada was located in the former XIII century Franciscan convent in the heart of historic center of Beja. Our room was in the old monk's cell, with classic furnishings and modern conveniences like twin beds, A/C, table & chairs, cable TV, safe, minibar and bathroom. The staff was polite & helpful. Buffet breakfast was included with many choices. Excellent... More

It's a very charming place to stay in an old and historic building. Some things need an update but in general it's a good experience. The better option in the area, in my opinion. Beja is a cute town but with not that much to offer.

Friendly personnel at the reception. Nice room, clean and comfortable. Very rich breakfast. Have had dinner in the hotel. Was overall disappointing. Took a 3 course meal (menu). Quality below our standard. Personnel gave us clearly the idea that we had chosen the "poorman's" meal. We our confident that if you offer such a meal you should stick to your... More

We stayed in Beja for two nights on our way to Redondo from Faro. The building is beautiful and interesting, the hotel is ideallysituated to explore the historic centre. The room we were allocated was not palatial but was certainly adequate for our needs with a fridge and was spacious enough to store everything. It felt as though we had... More

The first time in this pousada was some years ago, some months after it opened. At that time and also this time, we were impressed by the sizes of the hall and the heigth of the ceilings - it is majestic. At that time the rooms were quite small and this time the same was truth.

This is a beautiful building and a lovely spot for a tranquil couple of days. Just walking around the hotel is interesting. Yes, the heating was permentantly on in the bedroom, but we just opened the window (quite a novelty having to have a window open on 29th December). Very tastefully designed, and the bar is a wonderful spot for... More
