The property is a beautifully restored 15th C convent. Our room had the basic amenities like TV, small refrigerator. But strangely there was no complimentary in-room beverage offering for tea or coffee; no coffee maker, coffee, tea, sugar, cups and saucers, quite a surprise for a Luxury collection hotel. And there was no beer or soda in the refrigerator, no...

The pool bar should be working full time with food, meals and beverages in April, when it's so hot outside. There must be a catering service there, by the pool. Breakfast should be served outdoors in the gardens or arcades, because it's beautiful to have a meal with sun light and the setting is stunning. Apart from that the place...

It is an amazingly beautiful building which has been converted to a peaceful and stunningly beautiful hotel.

The hotel itself is built in a 600 year old monastery (yes the name is convento, but it was a monastary). The property is beautiful and they have preserved much of the original...

Visited as a couple in 2016 and really enjoyed this place. It's set in beautiful countryside so be prepared for a reasonably long taxi ride from Lisbon, but it's worthwhile. The property has an amazing charm to it, and it feels peaceful from the moment you arrive. The food options were a bit limited at the pool bar in particular,...

From check in to check out everything perfect. Wonderful Convento very well maintained, lots of history, silence, amazing suites, extremely kind staff, in other words, when in Evora you should stay here if you can afford. The only con: far from the city centre.

Unique hotel,restored former monastery retaining many historic features including a full church and the monks' wine cellar which is now the restaurant. Extremely courteous staff provide excellent solicitous service. Excellent facilities and rooms The one factor to note is that the restaurant is quite expensive and also provides "gourmet" meals which means small helpings, though the quality, flavours, presentation and...
