This excellent hotel, converted from a convent, has lots of character, wonderful views (except when the clouds close in!) and probably the best restaurant in the area. Our room was comfortable and well furnished; it was cold one evening and the heating soon warmed the room. We did not have a car. We arrived by taxi from Guarda (30 euros)... More

Just stayed here overnight but it was way to short. This hotel was just what we wanted. The room was lovely with beautiful grounds and views. Large selection for breakfast. We stayed for dinner and had the most amazing waiter who spent time with us and helped us order. Wonderful experience

For many years we have always passed on the motorway and this year we decided on an overnight stop. Lovely place and full of character. Dinner was outstanding and well-worth the stopover. Beds very comfortable.

The hotel stays is a very quiet place that used to be a monastery. The rooms are names with Priests names. The top thing in the room is the bed and the view. Besides it, don t miss the dinner at the restaurant. We tasted mushroom dishes and they were all great choices. Staff very polited and helpfull.

The location and common areas are beautiful. The room we stayed in had an unpleasant smell. TV without remote control. For one night only we did not complain since we had to carry our bags up and down and didnot want to do it again. Dinner was excellent. Breakfast nothing special. Maybe for an extended stay I could argue to... More

I could have spent the whole week at this hotel. Set in the side of the mountain with incredible views. We had a room that had a balcony that overlooked the mountain and it was spectacular. Each room is named for the monk who stayed there, and you need to know this as there are no numbers. It is a... More

This Pousada is beautiful, but it has an added attraction of have a great chef. Rooms were comfortable, and views of the nearby cities at dusk were spectacular. The combination of the old convent building with the more modern wing were architecturally superb. A great place to stay at a reasonable price, given the costs of luxury accommodations in Europe....

We've stayed at this Pousada many times over the past 6 years, it's where we have always tried to stay on our first stop on drive from Algarve to UK. I have previously put a glowing review on Trip Advisor about this hotel, but not this time. Our stay was completely ruined by their new policy on use of the... More
