Convento Do Espinheiro, A Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa Non Refundable
5 5 Star:
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. Luxuriously restored, Convento do Espinheiro gains a new synergy with the city of Évora, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is only one hour away from Lisbon.
A total of 92 elegantly decorated rooms, including 6 suites, select your favourite atmosphere and choose between a modern decoration inspired in the ´50s or a room in the 15th century convent. Their common denominator is comfort and refinement. A true taste of the Portuguese heritage, the 34 deluxe guest rooms at the Convento do Espinheiro, Évora offer an exquisite combination of luxury design and comfort that is expected from a Luxury Collection Resort. Deluxe rooms are available in a selection of three distinct views - Deluxe Garden guest rooms offer a private balcony with breathtaking views of the resorts garden and court areas, Deluxe pool view overlooking the splendid pool and garden areas as well as the local landscape.
Explore the heavenly flavours of Alentejo gastronomy. The Divinus Restaurant, an ancient wine cellar, offers its guests the essence of local cuisine with a hint of sophistication and refinement. 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.
Book accommodation at Convento do Espinheiro and begin your collection of unique experiences with a guided tour of the historic Convent followed by a tasting of the magnificent Alentejo wines in our gothic wine cellar, in the company of our Sommelier.
Guided tour starts at 5pm and wine tasting at 6pm.
This is valid for bookings until 31/10/16 and starts 26/12/15 for bookings for any duration of stay.

Beautiful setting, in historic property with lovely spa

Though Evora is the reason one goes here, you should count on spending time at the hotel itself, with its lovely grounds, great spa, gourmet restaurant, wine-tastings and beautifully restored church and buildings.

This place is an appalling rip-off. If you have nothing else to do with your money, give it to the poor, do not give it to these people. The room was okay and the breakfast was quite good but dinner was a total rip-off. Main dishes were priced at about €25. For this price they could have put Sporttv in the room for a month, but they didn't. The first course was a pretentious affair of some very strong-tasting cheese (like Gorgonzola) wrapped in a wafer type invention - absolutely disgusting. We had to wait for ages between each course and when the main dish was finally served it turned out to be a tiny piece of meat sitting on a green mush accompanied by (at most) two potatoes artistically formed into a cube. Dessert was a fancy chocolate wafer type affair, but they had forgotten to use chocolate. We asked for tea, not coffee, to finish so they put a teabag in a coffee cup with tepid water. Conclusion: their gourmet chef with postmodernist pretensions cannot even make a cup of tea. Collapse

This was our second year at this venue. The convento has been beautifully renovated and the grounds were much better this year than last. The pool, in summer, is the big attraction. The breakfast is extensive and well-served. Lunch at the pool offers good food...the service is often a little off. This year, the dinner in the formal room was a disaster!! While I understand the chef had been there only 3 weeks, waiting 1 1/2 hours for the entrees was unacceptable. The food is not so complicated that even a home-chef would require so long to make it. Management of the hotel is seriously lacking. When we and our friends returned to our rooms on the second of 4 evenings there was a serious sewage back-up. The woman at the front desk said we could not be moved as they had no other rooms...and then disappeared to leave a maid to clean the rooms (which did not take away the smell) it was less than an appropriate response to tell us to open the door to the terrace as there were mosquitoes and it was hot..
