Not everyday you encounter a renovated Convent turned hotel. The hotel is gorgeous with the ultimate luxuries, the best room toilet ever experienced, forget the bidet, this had a control to spray you off with a temperature chosen, a fan to dry you off after that! You'll want to take it home, trust me! The staff are very accommodating, the grounds are beautiful, the rooms are luxurious, and decorated with warm comfortable colors. The bar offers a unique atmosphere, but the complimentary wine tasting prior to dinner in this former convent is indescribable, a must experience. The fine dining room is so gorgeous with all the columns as if you were in the Vatican dimly lit all to yourselves. The buffett champagne breakfast is excllent, but the fine dining evening menu is a bit over the top as the fine dining seems to be these days, and I appreciate fine dining being a gourmet foodie, but this could have been less fancy fuss and more tastey with emphasis on local cuisine, but well worth one night to enjoy the atmosphere.
The town of Evora is not that appealing, so the hotel and the grounds with lovely swimming pool are a destination unto itself, with a visit to the nearby wineries, especially Espaora well worth a 2 night stay in Evora.
