We stayed here only one night. My girlfriend was sick so we didn't get to explore Evora, but I spent a good deal of time wondering around the property. The first room we checked into was in the old part of the hotel. It was very warm and had a single window about 1m by .5m. It felt historic but not luxurious. Because my girlfriend was sick we couldn't stay in the hot room and I asked to be moved which they very willingly and graciously obliged. The second room was fantastic, new, comfortable, and quiet. We ordered room service twice and each time it was good, but not great or special. While the people greeting us spoke very good English, the other employees (room service in particular) didn't speak much at all and this caused some confusion with our food orders. That said, I can't blame anyone for not knowing English, as my portugese is quite embarrassing. There was a free wine tasting in the cellar and the grounds were beautiful and meticulously kept up. I loved the pool to cool off and for a drink. The service was top notch. It's not a five star property in my mind, but it's classically unique and they give it their all. I'd recommend for others to stay here but I'd do it with a disclaimer that I have not stayed in any other place near Evora.
