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...

The most fabulous hotel - and incredible incredible value. Just stunning, huge character, great service, 5 star hotel. Wonderful. Restaurant is a little pricey, and we were surprised to be charged for nespresso coffee in the room. But wow.
