A Very Spacious and Pleasant 5* Convent Hotel Convento Espinheiro is indissolubly connected to the life of the Kings and Queens of Portugal who were used to express here their devotion as well as their generosity towards the Jeronimo’s monks founder of the convent. The structure is huge with an inhouse magnificent azulejos church, a secured inside parking in the middle of olive, lemon and orange trees. There is a functional underneath heated swimming pool of 15m long. A well stocked winery and related wine bar. The hotel has suitable facilities to welcome both marriage church celebrations and related parties. Every year, they organize about 35 marriages. The rooms are located either in the old aisle or in the new one. We stayed 4 nights in the suite design n° 154 in the new part. The space is wide with a large balcony with a garden view. The marble bathroom is wide with two basins, There is a jacuzzi bath tube and a glass separate shower. WC toilet is separated and suitable for people having a restricted mobility. The bathroom amenities “Bulgari” line were abundantly provided. The rich breakfast is served in a long and wide corridor where the cells of the monks were located. The service was very attentive to make us comfortable. Even with request such as red and black berries. With another local couple, we tried the Italian restaurant called “Olive” which is not at an acceptable level, considering the 5* classification of the Convento Espinheiro . Thank you for taking care of us. Gianni & Bea Novelli Geneva, Switzerland.

We stayed for two nights and wish we had stayed for a week. The staff is incredibly welcoming and helpful. Rooms are very comfortable. The Convent is filled with incredible history and the grounds manicured to perfection. We paid for the Full Board and were never disappointed by the meals, presentation and servers. Next time in Portugal we will return. The Spa services were very good. We had excellent massages.

I called to book a package with one the nicest rooms for my birthday. It's written in their website that they accept animals, so I booked them also - I have 2 very small dogs (chihuahua). I booked massages... and I was so happy to go there... I received a phone call saying that they DON'T ACCEPT 2 LITTLE DOGS, BUT ONLY 1 DOG, DOESN'T MATTER THE SIZE!!! I am so disappointed and they are not dog friendly.

We had the pleasure of staying here for three nights while on our travels through Portugal. This hotel is picture perfect. Given the long history of the convent, the hotel, grounds, church and chapel have all been lovingly restored. The rooms have every modern convenience and the restaurants are delicious. I highly recommend this amazing hotel that exceeded our every expectation. Be sure to schedule the tour of the grounds and the wine tasting

My husband and I spent two nights at the Convento while visiting Evora by car. What a beautiful, upscale spot this is. We didn't mind the less than 10 minute drive into Evora where free parking was easy to find. We had a premium room with a lovely view and balcony and found it to be very comfortable with a nice bathroom. It was the only hotel we stayed in during our trip that didn't have an espresso machine in it so I asked that they bring us one. Their response was to simply call room service and order it....we did and the coffee around in 2 minutes and was free! That's service. We had dinner in both Divinus and the pizza restaurant and enjoyed both of them. Breakfast was a buffet that was plentiful. And don't miss the afternoon tour of the facility and free wine tasting. And all of the staff was extremely friendly, kind and service-oriented.
