We were welcomed by the friendly and knowledgeable Ricardo - who was totally committed to guest satisfaction. The staff at the pool bar and at breakfast were professional, friendly and...

An absolutely beautiful experience. From the moment we walked in the the door experiencing this hotel was awesome. We were greeted by at least 5 people including the general manager who made the check in a part of the experience by giving us a brief history lesson on the convent, which was really a monastery. We were offered a typical...

A/c didn't work properly.. Bathroom and hallways were incredibly hot. Didn't refill shower gel. Bathtub wasn't working (only the walk-in shower was). The staff was nice. We were allowed late checkout.

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!...

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.

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!
