This place is a hidden gem. Imagine to stay in an old monestary that has been modernised but still with the touch of being an old monestary or castle! The breakfast was also great!! Loved this place!

An incredible step back in time with a sense of peace & history surrounding you. The rooms were comfortable. Excellent linens, toiletries and superb breakfast. Loved the breeze from the open window & hearing the rain as I slept. Recommend.

This converted convent needs a lot of tender loving care. Very nice managers and a decent breakfast. The interior is very atmospheric but the owners clearly ran out of money. Our room was huge with a fantastic view across to the Ilhéu de Vila Franco do Campo. But the mattress was uncomfortable and there was a drainage smell coming from the bathroom pipes. We informed management and they were concerned about it and said they would bring in a plumber. But at the end of the day the smell was never eliminated. Not that you need it but the room also had no television. So this place has so much more potential because of it being a former convent with amazing views. Someone just needs to invest some money to get it up to a better standard.

It exceeded my expectations. Fantastic vacation, with a lot of tranquility, calm. We were surprised by the friendliness of the hosts, who helped us with everything. Regarding the building, it is very beautiful, historic, with a lot of art to mix. Breakfast was also excellent and full of Azorean products

I loved the experience of living in a 17th century Franciscan monastery of architecture. Calm and cozy atmosphere. The entire convent has a classic decor. The room I stayed in was comfortable, quiet, providing a good quality of sleep. I also loved the view. Breakfast of excellent quality with fresh regional products. The outdoor pool and garden are good for swimming and relaxing in the sun. The hosts were wonderful and very kind!

Accommodation with a calm environment, excellent to enjoy and rest. The room I stayed in was very spacious and cozy with a wonderful view of the sea and the Ilhéu of Vila Franca. The breakfast was delicious with regional products: bolos lêvedos, cheeses, tea, pineapples and bananas from the Azores. Outside the Convent there are several terraces with lovely views, as well as a wonderful swimming pool. The hosts Manuela and José were very friendly, always ready to help. I will definitely repeat the experience when I return to São Miguel!

Think more Franciscan less Pistana, the monastery itself has great atmosphere, don’t forget the rooftop for amazing views out to the island and over the cloister, ..and if you’re brave the tower above.

Our family rented out the entire property for our week-long stay and all 25 of us were stunned by the peaceful, charming and unique Convento. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, the staff was very discreet yet always available to help and assist wherever needed to make our stay better. Manuela is fantastic! I highly recommend for a couple, a family, a group of friends, ... your week will fly by far too fast!
