Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this resort. And, i visited in the off season - i can't imagine how much fun it would be to enjoy the pool! The service is impeccable. The rooms - we had a suite - are gorgeous and immaculate. The dining room where breakfast is served is a spiritual experience. Evora is...

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your preference and for your wonderful review which so perfectly sums what we strive to transmit to our guests daily: Évora is just a little over an hour away from Lisbon and it is undoubtedly a unique city of which this magical convent, which we are so proud, is part. We are delighted...

The Convento is a well executed blend of old and new.. Given that the entire town of Evora is a Classified UNESCO World Heritage Site, the result gets a big thumbs up for providing a luxury retreat type experience without going too over the top. The delightful 'garden setting' of the Hotel & Spa is peaceful, restful, and relaxing. My...

With no expectations except Westin high hotel standards, I was wonderfully surprised by incredible, tangible history of this place. I was very pleased to feel the hotel maintained its connections to its significant Portuguese history. I recommend a minimum 2 night stay so you can enjoy the very nice outdoor pool area.

Beautiful hotel, outstanding service-minded personnel, there is little to complain about here. Very competitively priced for a 5-star, it's the type of hotel that you don't mind "hanging out" in. There is a lot to do/see, the rooms are beautifully appointed, bathrooms are large and have good lighting / large counter (great for makeup application). We spent 4 days here...

This hotel was magical! It is the loveliest conversion of a monastery that we have experienced. The staff was amazing - We had a king room in the old wing. The rooms are not large, but they are so beautifully appointed it doesn't matter. Very comfortable bed - and very quiet room. We only spent one night and didn't get...

This is an historic monastery that has been lovingly restored with the addition of a new guest wing with spa, etc. They have been able to keep many of the original features, including the fully fitted functioning church. (It is such a pity when the churches of these converted monasteries are desecrated for secular uses). The modern rooms are up...

We arrived in the rain and only stayed one night but loved the property. It has a great chapel, the grounds are lovely (an outdoor pool as well), we had a wine tasting in redone wine cellar, dinner in a fantastic room from the convent.
