Bfast, dinner, pool, service, staff, rooms, etc. are all great! Plus, you are in beautiful convent! One of the best hotel Bfast I´ve seen. I was there in the summer, so the pool more than welcome! During the summer plan you visit to Evora and surroundings in the morning and later afternoon… and enjoy the pool during midday. It´s a great hotel for a family, friends or couple trip. Dinner is also outstanding, so don’t miss it! Would book Convento do Espinheiro again in a heatbeat!

I have travelled to Alentejo for vacation for quite some time now, and I can honestly say this is one of the best, if not the best, hotels I've ever stayed at. It definitely is the best in Alentejo, in my opinion. I have stayed here about 3 or 4 times already, and I love it every time. I usually go for short time periods, due to the elevated price, so I normally stay 3-4 nights at a time. The food here is just amazing, and the wine is to die for, but we didn't dine at the hotel everyday. We went to Évora to try some of the other restaurants. The breakfast is unbelievable, it is one of the best parts of staying in a hotel, and I have never seen such an immense variety for breakfast. I really like to just chill by the pool when I go there. They also have a great inside pool, if the weather is less favourable in the colder months. Lastly, the staff is always so welcoming and nice, and when we arrived they offered us a complementary drink. All in all, if you want the best, do stay here and you won't be disappointed.

Staying at Convento do Espinheiro was a very unique and memorable experience! I can't say I've ever stayed in a 15th century convent before I stayed here! The guest rooms were modern, plush, and luxurious, and the common areas were like stepping back in time: cloisters, a beautiful church, statues of Mother Mary, candelabras, 500-year-old original artifacts, original dramatic architecture. There's nothing like it! We ate dinner at the restaurant, which was beautiful, great menu, great service, and great wine list (including from the winery we had just visited, Esporao). Brunch in the morning (served in the restaurant) was also very good - fresh selections and made-to-order. The pool is pristine and relaxing, and we had a delicious lunch and drinks at the pool bar. Wine tastings are offered in the evening, which my husband tried and enjoyed while I napped. Overall, a very special hotel for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Highly recommend.

Went here for 2 nights as part of our mini moon and it was the highlight of our trip. I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the moment we pulled up to the time we checked out we received incredible hospitality. All of the staff, from the man who valet parked the car, to the manager who came and greeted us, and everyone in between, were amazingly warm and friendly, and extremely professional, competent and efficient. Luckily we were upgraded to an incredible suite, which had two balconies, one was bigger than my apartment at home with the most incredible views. The building is a 500 year old convent which has had a l new modern wing added. It's absolutely stunning and has an incredible chapel inside. The staff know a lot about the history of the place, which was interesting. There's also a free daily tour. The pool area and ground were so gorgeous and the pool bar there served amazing food and drinks. There is a free wine and cheese tasting every day at 6. We are in no way knowledgeable but we like wine, the sommelier wasn't pretentious and we felt comfortable being there even though we were young and clueless compared to the other guests. There are a lot of trips and activities which the staff will happily organise for you. The hotel is so beautiful you might want to spend all of your time there! The nearby town of Evora is definitely worth a visit though. The hotel restaurant food was delicious and we found the bill reasonable. The breakfast buffet was great, the lady Chef made the most delicious omelette I've ever had. I could rant longer about this hotel, I would love to visit again. I've stayed in a lot of luxury collection hotels and this is my Favourite so far. Thanks again to the staff, you really made our mini moon special ☺️

Not your ordinary hotel and restaurant. Steeped in history with an exciting surrounding. The restaurant is first class. Reservations a must and have a great 3 hour lunch! Very, very reasonable for the high quality and service.
