Stunning....mesmerizing are just two words to describe this place. And I say place because this is much more than a hotel! The cloisters and chapel ....why visit others when you can sleep within their confines. And the staff....assisting and pleasant at every turn. And lastly, out of town in such a peaceful setting....and rabbits patrolling the property.....I was so relaxed!

Beautiful hotel. Maria and her staff were exceptional. Very attentive to the needs of guests. Could not have had a better experience. Would go back in a second. Food and the setting were outstanding. Stayed for 5 nights. Spa was amazing.

If you decide to visit Evora, and have an extra budget, strongly recommend this place. Rooms are superb, service really good, and at same time, you will learn some portuguese history, staying in place with really genuine soul. The restaurant good, but strongly recommend you try the near by Evora places where you will find the genuine mediterranic food taste....

If you want to stay in a hotel with some difference, this is the place to stay. Having been converted from a disused convent over 12years ago to a hotel it is now an amazing.

I have stayed in so many luxury hotels (think 5 stars hotels in India!) but I have never stayed in the hotel more beautiful and luxurious in my life. This is THE EXPERIENCE!!!

The hotel set in 20 acres of lush greenery with its own olive groves is quiet and relaxing with a beautiful outdoor swimming pool and also an impressive indoor pool.

We had a nice stay at Convento do Espinheiro but it was too short! We only stayed 2 nights, and the first night we got in pretty late. The grounds are beautiful, with great history.

This is a beautiful hotel, in a building that was previously a convent. You can still wander through the chapel, visit the wine cellar, or have a lovely drink in the bar.

The property is a beautifully restored 15th C convent. Our room had the basic amenities like TV, small refrigerator. But strangely there was no complimentary in-room beverage offering for tea or coffee; no coffee maker, coffee, tea, sugar, cups and saucers, quite a surprise for a Luxury collection hotel. And there was no beer or soda in the refrigerator, no...
