The hotel was a bit harder to find with our GPS - so eventually if you type in Espinheiro it will lead us 1 block away from the property. The hotel is spg at its best and has excellent service. Great deal with cash and points as we paid $40 euros a night with 5000 spg points!! a WOW deal!... More

Besides being a great hotel, with very friendly staff at the reception, we were mostly impressed by the wonderful restoration the convent has undergone. Portugal is full of little jewels but obviously it takes a lot of money to keep all those monuments in shape. In Espinheiro they managed very well.

Amazing place! a sanctuary for the soul and senses. kids loved it, namely for the pools (indoor and out and the park) and the toilets ... great breakfast. staff very attentive and kind. Evora is only 5 min away by car; the city is a live museum from the roman age. very good local dishes to try

we were surprised when they serve industrial orange juice (santal) in the breakfast buffet instead of using their marvelous local oranges.... the bread is frozen, the wine tasting is not from local producers...... a shame!

Convento do Espinheiro is one of those places where you breath history since you step in! The conversion to a 5* hotel worked perfectly maintaining the original spirit of the convent (there is a big chapel they use for wedding ceremonies) but with a luxury touch! It used to be also an hostel for nobles and kings back then in... More

This is one of those hotels that has it all. The physical portion, an old covenant with an existing chapel. Many people would want to come just to see the covenant and the chapel.
