There was a superb chapel within the hotel, great for photos. The folks at the front desk were very nice; having said that somehow our dinner reservation got misplaced either by the hotel or the restaurant and the front desk forgot to give us a wake-up call. $7.50 for sparkling water and a lackadaisical staff made for a “just OK”...

Stayed there for 4 nights very recently. Very lovely property maintained in excellent condition. Also very easy to find arriving with a rental car. Very friendly and speedy reception and check-in. SPG platinum benefits all ready and well organized. We were given a very spacious room at the end of the newly refurbished annex so it was also very quiet.... More

It's good to be back at this wonderful property surrounded by great countryside, history and talent. This building and its renovation just has to be commended. Mixing the new wing with its modern amenities as well as the upscaled suites and rooms in the historic building was just a labour of love for the developers/owners & Managment. The team of... More

Staying at the Convento do Espinheiro was a luxurious treat! The history and style of this hotel makes it one of the more unique places I've stayed during my travels. The accommodations and staff were very friendly and welcoming! I would recommend dining in the restaurant if there is an opportunity. The meal was AMAZING!

This is a very fine hotel with many modern amenties, but I couldn't wait to leave. The main concierge guy kept running after my daughter and I shouting "Madame" as if I needed help just walking. Way too obsequious.

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!
