A truly beautiful hotel with all the tranquility you would imagine in a former convent. Located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Travira. The central courtyard with its cloistered walkways, is truly stunning. The public rooms are elegant and tasteful and the pool area offer a contemporary environment which mergers seamlessly into the historic building. All the... More

This pousada was once a convent. Lucky nuns! Center courtyard with a cloister walkway. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Perfect one night stay in the Algarve. Beautiful use of wood throughout. Inviting pool area. Staff was most helpful.

We made a reservation at this hotel 10 months in advance. Three weeks before our arrival we got a rude email saying they were cancelling our reservation to accommodate a wedding.

We really liked this hotel - a good standard as are all Pestanas in our experience. The public spaces are fabulous but we were disappointed with our room. Okay it is difficult in a conversion but the windows were very small making it feel quite claustrophobic. Weird wardrobe arrangement with sliding cloth doors ( definitely a design mistake) .
