This hotel has a way of forcing you to relax, it's amazing. I spent a weekend in early August at this SPG property and wish I had spent more! The staff--from check-in to the poolside service-- were attentive, greeted you by name, and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable (I travelled alone). The grounds... More

A lovely stay in this stunning place. Do stay in the "modern" rooms, much nicer and more recently furnished than the normal "deluxe ones". They are also slightly bigger (but further away from the reception area). Very good beds, nice shower. Free wifi everywhere (though it did not always work great around the swimming pool). Nice and helpful reception. Service... More

A tremendous greeting courtesy of Fabio and Ricardo welcomed us to what we consider to be a fantastic discovery - made all the better with a small glass of Portuguese liquor at check-in! We enjoyed a Design Room, complete with balcony overlooking the formal gardens. Breakfast is a feast including local fizz to get the day off to a great... More

We booked 5 nights in July at this property. It is beautiful, its not my favourite SPG property, but its very close to the top. From arrival to departure the setting is enhanced by the committed staff. Maria and Patrick our outstanding. They manage and cater to the guests seemingly anchored to the reception desk.

This former monastery has been tastefully refurbished and modern rooms have been added on. It is surrounded by spacious grounds and has a very nice pool area plus tennis courts.

An absolutely beautiful experience. From the moment we walked in the the door experiencing this hotel was awesome. We were greeted by at least 5 people including the general manager who made the check in a part of the experience by giving us a brief history lesson on the convent, which was really a monastery. We were offered a typical... More

A/c didn't work properly.. Bathroom and hallways were incredibly hot. Didn't refill shower gel. Bathtub wasn't working (only the walk-in shower was). The staff was nice. We were allowed late checkout.

The hotel was a bit harder to find with our GPS - so eventually if you type in Espinheiro it will lead us 1 block away from the property. The hotel is spg at its best and has excellent service. Great deal with cash and points as we paid $40 euros a night with 5000 spg points!! a WOW deal!... More

Besides being a great hotel, with very friendly staff at the reception, we were mostly impressed by the wonderful restoration the convent has undergone. Portugal is full of little jewels but obviously it takes a lot of money to keep all those monuments in shape. In Espinheiro they managed very well.
