From the greeting you are given the moment you first arrive, to the standard of the rooms, to the quality of the food, to the friendliness and knowledgeability of the staff, to the peaceful, beautiful surroundings, you just can't fault this place. It's five stars are well earned and no one lets the side down. I can't recommend this place... More

We were lucky enough to spend four days here in July, and thanks must go to the staff for helping elevate a beautiful hotel into a wonderful experience. Everyone made the extra effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay and its clear to see how passionate people are about the wonderful Alentejo region. We were in rooms over-looking the pool... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of the suites, located in the old building. At arrival the service is great and efficient, very welcoming. The rooms are big enough, clean and comfortable. The first night we took the complementary tour, and later the wine tasting. This is a great initiative to show guest around and make them familiar... More

Charming and unique hotel, well worth a visit. Stayed for a week on business, enjoyed the hotel, loved the grandness of my room. An old hotel but I felt that added to its charm. Pool area lovely. Evora as a city is beautiful too and well worth a visit. A long way from the city centre but a lovely walk.

Living in Lisbon we booked last minute and stayed one night. We had a look at the lovely city of Evora before as well as the Cromeleque dos Almendres (the Portugal "stonehege") on our way to the hotel. It was a hot Portuguese Summer day in Alentejo and what a joy to arrive at the beautiful Convento do Espinheiro. Amazing... More

This is an absolute MUST GO PLACE. Full of history - as they'll show and walk you through the Convent and its Church, Wine cellar, Library, etc.. Full of Wine tasting - one everyday, with different wines (make sure this is on, when reserving); and the canapes that they serve are tasteful... very tasteful.. The swimming area, both inside and...

The overall experience was pleasant though its hard to understand the decision by Starwood to put this in the ALC brand among some truly exceptional hotels (Cala di Volpe, etc). It is a unique building with a real sense of history though it didn't seem that management was striving to provide a very luxurious experience (to be fair, the Convento... More
