This hotel is slightly out of the town and is housed in a converted convent/monastery. The buildings themselves are fascinating, with a fully functional, still consecrated chapel and a decor that matches the convent theme. Yet the rooms and all facilities are well up to contemporary standards. The restaurant is excellent and I enjoyed better lamb than I've ever eaten... More

One of the best hotels I have been in my life. The hotel has classic and modern rooms. I have been more on a modern style room and I love it (nice decoration and spacious). Everything is very clean. Great service. Very good interior pool and SPA. This hotel as a smart solution for families: they use 2 rooms next... More

We just stayed here one night and it is a beautiful hotel situated just 5 mins outside of town. Staff was helpful with recommendations for sights in Evora and restaurant recommendations. Rooms were large and the hotel had a fantastic indoor pool with a hot tub.

The hotel is iconic: the building it is inserted into has been fully recovered to luxury standards whilst conserving the original aspects and details of the convent, including a magnificent church, a cistern that has been converted into .a cellar (with wine tastings every day), and the original kitchen fireplace converted into a living room that still has some of...

What do we really expect from a luxury hotel? A spacious and well decorated bedroom? Great amenities? A hefty price tag? A never ending list of services? Swimming pools, spa and restaurants? If it is only that anyone can have a luxury hotel... There can't be true luxury without exclusivity! This hotel offers you all the comfort and finesse you... More

One of the most unique and memorable stays our family has ever experienced. Starwood Platinum upgrades were granted without having to make a request. The suites were perfectly maintained with modern amenities even though you are staying in a historic property. The staff is outstanding and justifiably proud of their hotel. The hotel tour and wine tasting are welcome added... More

This old monastery is one of the best hotels one could possibly want to visit. The staff are friendly, helpful and pleasant. My room was spacious, clean, comfortable and the Wifi worked on the balcony as well which was an extra bonus!

The Convento do Espinheiro is breathtakingly lovely, well maintained and situated ideally close enough to E'vora, yet far enough away to awaken you with birdsong. As other reviewers have already done justice to the history of the place as a monastery, which makes it great fun to explore, I want to sing the praises of the exceptional staff. Ricardo, the...

Very unique hotel, in an old monastery, which includes a beautiful church and cloisters. It is highly recommended to take the guided tour, explaining the history of the place which is quite significant. There are rooms in the historic wing and also in a new, modern wing.
