The SPG luxury collection are uniquely individualistic and special experiences. This hotel is built in a former monastary. It has both new and old rooms. By old I mean rooms that have been around for 500 years. Needless to say they are updated for today's consumers. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel. The food and presentation were superior....

Well... What a disappointment! Entrance, hall and common part are AMAZING, but rooms in the modern part look like an holiday village with no charme. Is a Luxury hotel Collection, so I want/wait the perfection: I found holes in my sheets, the air conditioning was terribly noisy, maximum fan, very cold and impossible to adjust. We called the reception but... More

Wow!! Absolutely exceptional - great property full of history and an amazing customer service. My family and I spent 2 wonderful 2 nights in this property. We chose the historical wing and it was the best decision we could have make. The suites were extremes spacious with huge bathrooms and individual terraces. At night we would sit outside observing beautiful... More

A great hotel, great staff and a really calm place to rest. The pool area is perfect. We enjoyed our stay and surely recommend it! Piece of heaven. The wine tasting was also a cool experience, breakfast is varied and tasty.

This hotel was created form the cloister. Now it is very impressive. The old part of it is beautiful. It is comfortable and stylish. The pool is ok. Breakfest was on the highest level. The hotel is quiet. What I like most was very helpful service.

This hotel has some history and very amazing and old part. But the rooms are too old and not confortable. I think the relationship with the price it is not a 5 stars. On the other side we enjoyed the kindness of people and wine free tasting. The hotel is also a bit far from downtown.

The Convento is a beautiful hotel just outside Evora. Throughout our stay the friendly staff made an effort to ensure our experience was wonderful. Our room was in the historic part of the hotel and very comfortable although I would not describe it as luxurious. It had the best air conditioning system that we experienced on our trip which was...

Hotel accomodation is very good. A bit noisy with children at meals time.They should have different lunch and dinner place for kids. Meal service and menu over pretencious with a supposed gourmet food. Doesn't go with the area or the history of a 600 year old convent

If you are looking for rest and a bit of luxury, far from the city hustle and bustle, than the Hotel Convento do Espinheiro near Évora in the calm countryside of the Alentejo is the right place for you. The staff and environment are great and you simply feel welcome and at ease to enjoy your days spent here.
