“In the middle of no where but worth the effort”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Booked for 1 night and stayed 2. They have turned this once convent into a quirky hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable and entered through the original Monks doors.
The food was ok, breakfast was shared with loads of flies! but the staff were on hand with sprays...
Off the beaten track but well worth the effort

Impressive convent in the middle of nowhere. Quiet. Excellent atmosphere and superb staff. Two good swimming pools, various hiking trails, although the mountain bikes were not in very good shape. You can visit Évora, Vila Viçosa, and you are near to the Spanish border.

Ancient convent partly turned into hotel, with very succesful adaptating of the cells to comfortable if somewhat small rooms. Beautifully at harmony with the surrounding mountains this is truly one for total quiet and getting away from .. pretty much everything.
Very helpful trilingual staff, more than decent food and very good prices. And so very quiet and relaxing. I stayed a weekend, all by myself - but I suspect I could have brought the whole family and stay for a month and no one would complain of boredom. The ideal place to recharge batteries. Or paint. Or write. Or explore the nearby villages that seem to be living (as opposed to being ghostly) in another century... But with mod coms.

Nice and historic place !
Problem is that it is not suited for people that have breathing problems like astma because the rooms are moist ! If you walk in the corridors you smell the moist in the building.
My wife had an astmatic attack because of the room-climate, but to be honest ; we got a suite offered the second night with no surcharge ! So service etc is excellent.
The restaurant is good but not more than that ; if you want a nice and real portugese meal go to redondo - across the church is a small bar (not in the side street, but really across) the church ... if you walk through the bar there is a small restaurant in the back ... had a hughe fish (dorade) for 9 euros and try to get also Bochechas (pigs cheeks) ...
Also nice place to eat is in Evora Restaurante Cozinha de ste Humberto in the Rua da Moede (sidestreet of the main market square).

I've visited this hotel twice and although it is not on the typical tourist route I look forward to visiting again. A member of the Hoteles del Arte and Heritage Site Hotel associations, Convento has a full schedule of art exhibits, dance and music concerts amid lovely accommodations including the largest collection of Portuguese tile in the country (world?); the contemporary art collection of the Henrique Leote Foundation; a lovely on site restaurant; an accommodating staff and beautiful surroundings with small day trips throughout the region.. THERE IS A PHENOMENAL OFFER FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE PACKAGE!!!! WISH I COULD GO......I KNOW IT WILL BE A PARTY! check it out!

Fantastic ex-convent, now hotel. The decor is amazing, the scenery is fantastic, the rooms are lovely. It has retained the old convent look, but has added in modern art. Sounds weird but it seems to work!

Hotel is inserted in an old convent, and the architect has kept the history alive. Really long corridors with "azulejos", chapel, cloister, quiet and comfort - and additionally a very good restaurant. Friendly reception. The convent is placed in a secluded area, but still very near the Lisbon highway, Estremoz and Evora. and very easily accesible.
Large rooms, historic furniture, comfortable. I suppose in high summer the rooms are still cool, because the walls are thick.
External ares include a swimming pool reached through historic courtyard, and a small lake, surrounded by nature trails. Highly recommended.
