This place is amazing! The staff went above and beyond during our short stay. Everyone was so helpful giving us directions to Evora, helping us pick out delicious wines after the complimentary wine tasting, etc. At 1:00am I even called to ask about extra US plug converters and someone was at my door within 5 minutes with a whole box...

We stayed during a long weekend in December. The building and its refurbishment is impressive and has been carefully done. Marvellous buffet for breakfast. Waiters very attantive. Good concierge service. It's a pity that some families in the pool were extremely noisy. A pity because other children were perfectly behaving, but this is not a problem of the hotel but... More

The Convent is stunning, which is why the fake "antique" furniture, reproduction plastic paintings and overall bad taste throughout the hotel are such a pity. The decoration is far below the standards of the exceptional historical building and magnificent world heritage church. I would recommend the Pousada de Évora any day. . The Spa and inside pool are much to... More

Stayed at Convento do Espinheiro for 2 nights in November with my wife and had an amazing experience. We had a suite in the historic section, which had incredible character.

The Convento was a monastery and the monks lived like kings. The rooms are magnificent and the hotel, privately owned, is one of the most beautiful we have stayed in. There is a tour each afternoon at 5 and you are shown the secrets of the magnificent gold cathedral within the hotel. The breakfast buffet is one of the best... More

We stayed here because it was a Starwood property, being gold members our room was upgraded to a suite, which was magnificent. This might be the best hotel I have ever stayed at.

We usually stay in the center of town for easy access to tourist sites and restaurants. This exception to our rule was the best decision of our trip. The location was rural and peaceful, the staff gracious and helpful and the hotel itself absolutely beautiful. The person who decided to renovate this beautiful old monastery is to be highly commended.... More

We stayed in this charming former convent in September and were delighted with its historical ambience. The rooms were comfortable and luxurious. We were fortunate to receive a tour of the facility by the hotel staff, as well as their "saboring" open champagne for our party. The staff was friendly, professional and top flight. The chapel area was remarkable (see... More
