Besides being a great hotel, with very friendly staff at the reception, we were mostly impressed by the wonderful restoration the convent has undergone. Portugal is full of little jewels but obviously it takes a lot of money to keep all those monuments in shape. In Espinheiro they managed very well.

Amazing place! a sanctuary for the soul and senses. kids loved it, namely for the pools (indoor and out and the park) and the toilets ... great breakfast. staff very attentive and kind. Evora is only 5 min away by car; the city is a live museum from the roman age. very good local dishes to try

we were surprised when they serve industrial orange juice (santal) in the breakfast buffet instead of using their marvelous local oranges.... the bread is frozen, the wine tasting is not from local producers...... a shame!

This is the nicest place I have ever stayed. It's a beautiful and historical property, a museum and hotel rolled into one. Luxurious but not pretentious. The staff is warm and friendly, especially Mara at the front desk! She took time to give us a tour of this historic property, gave us welcome drinks of a special liquor from the...

Our recent stay here was the finest hotel experience ever at a Starwood property- or anyone's property , for that matter. When was the last time you stayed in a hotel that the King of Portugal lived in for many years .Or a hotel that has a full Catholic church inside it. This was such a great place on so...

Convento do Espinheiro is one of those places where you breath history since you step in! The conversion to a 5* hotel worked perfectly maintaining the original spirit of the convent (there is a big chapel they use for wedding ceremonies) but with a luxury touch! It used to be also an hostel for nobles and kings back then in...

This is one of those hotels that has it all. The physical portion, an old covenant with an existing chapel. Many people would want to come just to see the covenant and the chapel. We found in many Portugese hotels that would not let us view their interior if were were not hotel guests. Beautiful landscaping and pool area. Our...

We highly recommend the Covento do Espinheiro where we stayed for three nights in mid-May 2014. This is a truly exceptional hotel, and it merits by far being included in the Sheraton Luxury Collection. The place is extremely well-maintained and spotlessly clean. The owners did a exceptional job in renovating this historical property into a first-class hotel. It is beautiful,...
