Rated 3 out of 5 by coldguest Needs improvement
The check in staff needs to alert guests that, during the off-season, the guest needs to tell the staff when they want to use to sauna, hot tub or steam room. We went there in anticipation of a great experience and all of the facilities were not turned up. The hot tub had cold water running through it, the sauna and steam room were barely warm. We were so looking forward to getting warm as it was very cold and rainy when we were there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EOH54 Wonderful historical site
Close to beautiful and historical Evora with its Chapel of Bones, Roman Temple and excelent gastronomy, Convent do Espinheiro is very well restored with its beautiful church and cloisters, very helpful and knowledgeable staff well versed on restaurants and activities in the Alentejo. Our stay was wonderful and romantic. It would be nice, however, if the Spa had rooms for couples. Overall a hotel to go back to, time and time again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tls5 Hotel Experience
The staff was outstanding. I was disappointed in room amenities. There was no in room coffee and tea. We did have a lil ant problem as well but we were on ground floor. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious. The setting is peaceful, it was easy to relax. I just wish I could have awakened to a nice in room cup of coffee so that I could have sat on the patio and enjoyed the peace, especially for SPG members.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CJJT Very nice stay
Beautifully restored and fascinating hotel. All staff were extremely professionel and doing their utmost to give us a pleasent stay. We fully enjoyed both indoor and outdoor pool facilities. View from garden room/balcony was fabulous. Not the best sleep we have had due to mosqitoes in one of the rooms and quite noisy air conditioner. Restaurant was perfect for dinner but very dark for breakfast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Petaluma99 unique property
This property is wonderful for a one or two night stay - we were upgraded to a spacious suite which was lovely. The hotel itself is well cared for and is situated in a lovely setting. Unfortunately, it is not that close to Evora and requires a five-ten minute drive. So, liked the property but not the location. If you think you can get up and walk into town or eat at other restaurants, forget it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ACCHKG NIce hotel in a great setting
The hotel itself is beautiful and in a great setting. It's about 8-10 minutes into Evora (8 euro for taxi) which is a quick ride, but I would have thought however that a Luxury Collection hotel might have a shuttle or courtesy car into town given the location. Rooms were large and balcony was very nice with a good view. The attached church is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PLMP The monastery hotel
A holy place made into a convent, made into a luxury hotel. Outstanding church and public rooms. Our bedroom was confortable and had a beautiful open view to the surrounding countryside. Would welcome more space for toiletries and the like in the bathroom. Welcoming and helpful staff. Enjoyed the daily wine tasting. Do recomend this hotel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RuiFerro Sublime, as always
Definitely an hotel where we can find a place to rest, a place where kids are welcome, where we can find the ancient history of Alentejo... at least once a year a place to go and recharge batteries.

The entire staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful. They took the time to make sure that we were comfortable and answered all of our questions regarding the hotel and the local sites, as well as the food and unique Portuguese beverages.

There is room to improve the food with a greater variety of light Mediterranean-type fare for those who do not or cannot eat rich food or the usual American fare of hamburgers and Caesar salad.
