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

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. The room was finely decorated and roomy and we had our own balcony for an evening drink. The before pictures are amazing as this was an abandoned... More

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

I was initially irritated because I like to stay in the city/ village we visit and this was 6km out of town. As soon as we arrived and welcomed to this site for a tour I was relaxed and glad to be where we were. We had a car so going to town wasn't difficult and glad to go in... More

It's a luxury hotel with its own chapel! I've never seen anything like it and trust me I've seen a lot. This hotel was a great deal with our SPG points. Especially after we saw it. It's out in the country side all by itself, but its grounds are so amazingly beautiful. As a Californian, I felt it was like... More
