In late December my partner and I spent the night in this beautiful place. The hotel is also a museum of hand painted tiles, azulejos, down every corridor and public space. The grounds near the hotel are nice quiet spaces to enjoy a bit of peace and history. The family that owns this place has transformed what might have fallen... More

The building, tiles, landscape are unmatchable. This place is not to be missed. Citrus trees bursting with ripe fruit in late December. Stylish restaurant, very friendly service there & throughout the hotel. Walk the hallways. It's better than most museums. Our room (super low price, off season) was in an out-building and a bit musty-smelling. But otherwise nice. Also, don't... More

This place is a gem. We read about it in a food and wine article and checked it out. The food was great and the wine was fantastic and at a great price. We practically had the pools to ourselves. I had a little trouble sleeping because I thought there were ghosts.....considering we were steps away from the very old... More

Contrary to opinions expressed on TA we had a very different experience at the convento. We found our suite reeked, whether it was of age, mildew, or the fireplace, it was very unpleasant. We encountered similar smells elsewhere in the convento. The furniture was old and uncomfortable. The room was inhabited by inch and a half long black worms. All... More

The hotel is in a old convent. Third time I stay in this hotel... I love the staff, love the facilities, and love the landscapes. This time the hotel had some new ecological windows, some bathroom were remodelate for better. The breakfast is nice, enough. Meals are ok, but I prefer to go visit some restaurante nearby, so I can... More

This convent hotel was difficult to find but definitely worth it. We arrived late but in time for a late dinner in the cloister. The service was fine and the meal delicious. The next day we explored the historic property and were absolutely delighted by the tiles, the chapel, you name it. Definitely worth getting off the beaten track in... More

The setting and the views are beautiful. We stayed in a suite in the annex, which we liked better than the slightly more expensive room in the main building. We went for a swim and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. The service was good but the breakfast was only just acceptable. The cheese and ham were the cheapest quality... More

This is truly a fantastic place with a thousand years of history , in a magnificent setting. We truly loved this place, the staff were very helpful and the food excellent. The highlight of our two week trip through the UK, Spain and Portugal. With two swimming pools and stunning environment.

This is a wonderful hotel, set in the beautiful countryside of Alentejo. It is a bit remote, on the road between Estremoz and Redondo, and you need a car to get there. But it is worth it! Firstly the price - the cheapest rooms (which we stayed in) are €65, in an annexe near the main convent building. This is... More

This is the ideal place for a relaxing trip in the Alentejo. The scenery is so beautiful and the hotel facilities just perfect. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It does not felt like a hotel but more like a guest house. The food in the restaurant is really delicious. This old convent is well looked after and the... More
