Stayed at El Convento with my husband and daughter while scouting out rehearsal venues for our son's November wedding. Lovely hotel, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed seeing the main banquet area of the hotel where our son's wedding reception is to be held and getting a first hand look at the accommodations, since many of our wedding guests will be staying there. The building is unique and stunning when you walk in. Beautiful Spanish oil paintings (Velazquez?) flank the gate as you enter the side foyer. You feel instantly transported to another time. The entire hotel is graciously appointed and one can spend hours admiring the art and architecture. The pool area is small, but relaxing and the "happy hour" wine and cheese buffet in the late afternoon was a nice offering, despite the hoards of guests that descended upon the small buffet and loaded mountains of food on their plates. Oh well. Not the hotel's fault...(The coffee service in the morning is a much more pleasant time to enjoy the third floor hospitality area.)
Can't wait to come back for the wedding in November and once again enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of El Convento.
