Reviews for Convento do Espinheiro Hotel & Spa
This property is amazing! Take time to wander the halls and gardens to appreciate all that it has to offer. Rooms were lovely with the most modern of conveniences, staff was charming and always willing to help. Buffet breakfast was a bit chaotic but had many offerings. I wish we could have stayed more than one night.

What a glorious place!! We stayed in the original part of the monasteryâ€” where kings and queens have slept. I felt like a queen. And the bidet!!! It did everything at the temperature you selected. Best bathroom ever! The hotel contained a beautiful church adorned with gorgeous blue tiles depicting the life of Saint Jeronimo. The wine cellar was beautiful and unique. The delicious full breakfast was served in the exceptional restaurant. And then there was the luxurious Spa and outdoor pool area. The hotel is part of the SPG Luxury Hotel Collection. Service was top notch. A 10-12 minute cab ride to the walled city of Evora. Definately one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Portugal. We hope to return to the Convento and stay longer.

I only stayed here one night, but it was so amazing. This is a converted monastery and still has a chapel. The rooms are comfortable and plenty of public spaces to move around. The staff is friendly and attentive. Be sure to take the tour of the hotel, you will love it. This is definitely worth a visit, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed here for just one night in August. We stayed in one of the modern well-appointed rooms attached to the old convent. The staff are extremely helpful and extras like a tour of the convent and a free wine tasting session made for a great stay. Both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were excellent. We have already booked for a return visit.
First trip to Portugal let alone a week in Ã‰vora. But a great location to stay in Ã‰vora if you want a bit of quiet and ommm. Located 5km out of town it means having to take a cab in. No shuttle provided by the hotel (esp. for a 5* establishmentðŸ¤”). We were cycling so it wasnâ€™t an issue. Nevertheless the Convento (itâ€™s actually a monastery) is a phenomenal restoration of history and architecture. Iâ€™ve only seen one other place like this and itâ€™s the Hotel Monasterio in Cusco Peru. Iâ€™m sure there are many similar examples around. Very helpful staff though. Free hotel tours daily at 5pm followed by free wine tasting and nibbles in the cellars at 6pm (you donâ€™t have to buy and if youâ€™re not easily embarrassed, you could have a happy hour every day youâ€™re thereðŸ˜¬) Lots of great dining to Ã‰vora but .... if youâ€™re driving itâ€™s OK. Parking in Ã‰vora town can be a pain as it ainâ€™t particularly convenient if youâ€™re driving a large car. Roads are narrow inside the fortress walls. Ã‰vora is a walking town but heavily cobblestoned so wear proper walking shoes.
