Wonderful RetreatPosted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: Off the beaten path a bit. Beautiful location with wonderful vistas. Incredibly quiet. No sounds except the birds.
My wife and I spent one night. It is a very large facility (especially for one with only 41 guest rooms) with many interesting public spaces. The re-use of this former religious facility has been thoughtful. We would return for a short retreat, as it is removed from nearby distractions. The website for the hotel is quite good, but only an actual visit can let you learn how wonderful a place it is.

One night at the ConventoPosted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
it has been a most pleasurable experience. The hotel is located in an isolated area of Alentejo and is surrounded with beautiful landscapes and nature.It has been modernized while at the same time preserving the cultural identity of its medieval origin. Its numerous Azulejos are spectacular. The food at the Ermita restaurant is also quite sophisticated. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to discover a side of Portugal that is off the beaten track.

Genuine historic sitePosted May 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
One of the most interesting places we have ever stayed. The management has succeeded in providing the guests with all necessary comforts while still maintaining the character and original state of the property. Staff very helpful. While applauding the use of the low energy light bulbs, I found that the ones in the bathroom were so low that it was difficult to apply makeup, etc. Breakfast was satisfactory but did not provide a lot of variety.

A beautiful, serene locationPosted Apr 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The common areas in the hotel were warm and inviting in spite of the fact that it was a cool,wet evening. The wood burning fireplaces and the comfortable furnishings were greatly appreciated. The convent had such a extensive history that it felt as though we had two experiences for the price of one.We would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely paradisiac hotel in AlentejoPosted Jul 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a perfect stay in the hotel. It was the quietest place in Portugal, in the middle of the forest, with no neighbours, 30+°, a beautiful swimming pool with a hammock and the most helpful staff ever. We could really have stayed weeks there to enjoy the peacefulness of the convent. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Go, you won't regret it.

Splendid isolationPosted Jun 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a fantastic time. The surrounding countryside is magnificent. We stayed in summer (June) when the weather was terrific, but I’m not sure we would want to stay there in the depths of winter. My only gripe is that our room was quite dark, which you would expect in a converted monastery, but there wasn’t enough lighting to compensate. The restaurant is atmospheric with excellent service, but we found the food not quite up to scratch. There is a small restaurant in the village just down the road (Restaurante Serra d’ Ossa) which had good food at half the price.

Hotel Convento stay June 2012Posted Jun 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Great place if you want peace and quiet, surrounded by nature. We booked one night and once we arrived fell in love with the atmosphere. We extended our stay by one day. The place has history and is a very unique property. The food was average the service was great. You cannot go wrong if you are looking for a place to decompress. Also the internet works well in the common areas.
