Fascinating for its history, authentic for its charm, Convento do Espinheiro, Evora has given life to a 15th century convent, considered a national monument where important nobles have outlined the history of Portugal.

We invite you to embrace the exquisite local wines at our wine bar, originally a Gothic water reservoir dating back to the 15th century. The magic of Alentejo cuisine is in its use of simple and indigenous products, to create meals where the pleasure of eating is akin to cultural homage.

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 a less visited destination and it is for sure magical. Roman ruins, druid ruins, wineries and incredible food await you about 1.5 hours from lisbon. Collapse

I had the chance to stay in Convento do Espinheiro in Évora. Its now the hotel i most admire! The management joins Portuguese heritage and luxury services in perfection. this rich and magnificent convent is a wonder full of secrets! Exploring its corridors will give you a felling your going back in time, only to find your in the 21 century's best hospitable services when you discover the outside pools, the spa. or the bar.The fusion of this both worlds is made with extreme taste: restorations were carefully made and the adaptation of the rooms gives you a high quality confort. Its was a privilege to participate in the daily tour with the local guide that explained the history of the convent and some interesting facts. Also a routine in this estabelisment is the wine tasting, it took part in an astonishing place (with old holes on the ceiling were the monks gathered rain water). There was an oenologist that gave its tree daily wine selection to try, also with some local cheeses and jam and olive oil. All the staff were genuilly friendly, helpfull and professional. Convento do Espinheiro is a hidden quiet secret that will amase however has the possibility to afford this top quality services. Or if you search for some special ocasion, even once in your life, this is the place! I already feel going back! I wish all the staff best wishes Filipe Correia de Oliveira Collapse
A living history lesson disguised as a luxury hotel

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 whilst on a business trip, upon arrival upgraded to the new designer part of the hotel (highly recommended, beautiful rooms). We toured the property, which has beautiful original details from its former life as a convent dating back to the 15th Century, including a gorgeous chapel. I cannot stress this last part enough - this is literally a living luxury history lesson. It is a unique experience you will likely not be able to duplicate elsewhere, which makes this hotel even that much more special. We were pleasantly surprised to learn about the wine tastings they hold at 1800/6PM. This region has superior wines and those at the hotel didn't disappoint. The wine bar (Cisterna) is a wonderful, and one can purchase the wines. Dinner at Divinus was good, the food was of high quality and there was good choice on the menu. Same hold true for the food received from room service. Finally, breakfast provided a full buffet with omelettes/eggs made to order. In all cases, the restaurant and room service staff where incredibly service oriented ensuring that every single need was tended to. There actually should be a special mention regarding the staff here. They are warm and friendly, eager to help, I can't find a fault. It was an over all wonderful experience in a very special and unique hotel that I can wholeheartedly recommend. I'm likely to be back for pleasure. NOTE: Tripadvisor asks regarding the pricing of this hotel. To be honest, I would price it mid-range particularly given the prices of other such hotel meeting such high standards and having a five star rating. However, I appreciate the fact that it is luxury priced for the region. Still, however you look at it, it was absolutely value for money! Collapse

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 wife and I took a walk through and then out of the grounds around the Convento, breathing in the country air and views back to Evora which is a wonderful historic site/town with immense significance in the Alentejo and is still partially walled and containing well preserved ruins dating back the the first century A.D. (Temple of Diana) and the Magnificent Cathedral..not to mention the Chapel of Bones (early 17th Century). It also includes a very famous restaurant 'Fialho' that my wife (a dedicated professional foodie) was not going to miss, so had booked us for a delicious lunch which will probably be the subject of another review. We indeed ate in the town for a few meals, but did also enjoy the wonderful fresh produce lunch provided poolside at the Convento, (including ingredients grown on the property) along with attending the Wine tasting and accompanying educational/historical commentary provided by our sommelier/guide. My wife was quick to book herself into the Spa and felt rejuvenated and refreshed by the experience which (as an experienced 'spa-goer' rated highly). I reclined poolside and appreciated the service of cool beverages available by the attentive young staff doing a great job in a delightful garden setting. As mentioned by others, the 'blending' of the ancient Convent, its Chapel and relics with the more contemporary components of the Hotel has been sensitively and carefully executed.. all staff we interacted with were personable, polite, and genuinely took pride in providing an exceptional level of hospitality.

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. Collapse
