We stayed two nights at this hotel and it really is a lovely place to stay with tasteful modern decor. It is more of a business hotel rather than a tourist one and there were two big conferences going on when we were there but that did not bother us in any way. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially the bar staff who made a great effort to explain the menu in English. The food was very good too. We stayed in a junior suite and it was very spacious with a good size bathroom. There are no balconies on the rooms to sit out on. The hotel is environmentally friendly with all the lights going on an off as you walk in and out of the rooms.
The only down side for us was that I booked the hotel because I saw that they had an indoor swimming pool. It is not stated on the web site that this is a small spa pool and to use the pool costs €7.50 extra per person. If we both used the pool this would have added a considerable extra cost to our stay so I was very disappointed that I had been misled. I understand that you have to pay extra for activities such as golf or treatments in the spa but when a hotel advertises a pool in their facilities you are not normally charged extra and a lot extra in this case.
You can walk to the abbey and the little town of Batalha from the hotel and if you are interested in sports there is a great sports facility including a running track right beside the hotel.
