The location amazing, the main building gorgeous and imposing. You can spend hours just walking the grounds and exploring the inside of the convent. We stayed in the annex which the rooms were simple but sufficient We had two rooms in the annex so you have to go to the main building for wifi. They both smelled a bit moist... More

A centuries old convent which has been converted into a hotel yet maintained the character of the past. It is a remarkable building and a wonderful experience to stay in such a place. We stayed in one of the rooms outside of the main building but his didn't detract from the experience. Staff were very helpful. The restaurant has god... More

A remarkable place....a genuine surprise. An old Convent, in the outskyrts of Redondo, very well maintained, where you can enjoy history, peace and tranquility, and beatifull surroundings. You can try the pedestrian walks, outside de convent, or just stay at one of the pools and relax. The outdoor bar has a fantastic view of the hills. There are many corners... More

We stayed there for a night and enjoyed very much the setting and this unique place. Very well maintained. It's really a museum with beautiful ceramics, ceilings... Nice rooms with good views on the hills. If you book outside the convent. Charming people working there. The restaurant has good food and good wine too. There are some tracks starting from... More

In the middle of Serra d'Ossa I wouldn't expect to find such a big monastery that kept it's history and character without being "old". Very nice environment, calm atmosphere, simple and very discrete service and above all a welcome feeling. Not the fancy renewed type but the authentic place with history that you can feel. Wonderful stay, amazing time in... More

It is not a luxurious hotel but it has lots of charm, set in a former convent with walls lined with beautiful tiles. This hotel breathes tranquility, peace, harmony. Good reading spaces hearing the water to fall. Two small pools, comfortable chairs and loungers invite you to relax and laziness.

The old convent is nicely converted into a beautiful hotel and well worth a visit. The location is fantastic : nice views and very quiet. We stayed three nights in the outside buildings. The beds were comfortable and the sitting area is ok. Small changes however would have made it so much nicer : take away the carpets , renew... More

If you are anywhere near this area, this is the place you have to stay! From the spectacular tilework to the the chapel to the grounds, this hotel is amazing. We at dinner at the restaurant, where the waiter at the restaurant told us stories about the origins of the dessert recipes dating back to the monks.

Comfortable; reasonable yet somehow seems like a very extravagant stay at a totally full service hotel-though not a spa. Full service in that anything is possible under the direction of Eduardo Bon Sousa, the multi-dimensional Hotel Manager/Director. He manages a flow of events and unique groups of tourists in a masterful way. Groups of weekenders for a (50) birthday celebration... More
