Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After ride 700 km on motorcycle from Santander to Alter, when arriving in Convento d'Alter the reception can't be better. Nuno Quina in the reception, a great and friendly professional don't want let me carry my bags to my room, after give me a guided visit In the hotel I be very impressed. They prep me some snacks in the bar, what is really good after 700km in temperatures around 35°C.
In the evening the barman José Castelinho, very friendly and professional give advice about the best restaurants around. Amazing environment in the hotel the stuff have very high standards with the costumers. Better is impossible.
The conditions of my room, swimming pool, private parking are stunning.
Definitely I recommend this place without hesitation. Great time I had in my two weeks in the hotel.

We did have a bit of an issue as a gay couple on arrival and we booked a double room so had an issue with reception telling us we made a mistake on booking a double ...bit awkward...lovely hotel and town. Room was good with lovely balcony,we loved the character and location. Main criticism would-be the bed was like sleeping on a board for 2 nights. Breakfast was good but staff seemed scared to show their face but hide in the kitchen so difficult to resolve any requests such as hot water for tea etc. Lovely stay.

It's an old monastery and I'm sure that would make quite an impression when it was renovated, but now it's a bit outdated. Old bathrooms and cold floors. The breakfast was good though. Needs some renovations.

The town and the Convento building is beautiful, the service adequate and the price is right. The pool is a must in summer days. We use it often in our terracottajourneys bike tours and recommend it to all our friends.

Very kind people for an excellent service in an historic building. Good spacious rooms, great breakfast and a nice small pool limited by the available area. Well located in the village center, with private parking.

This ancient convent has been renovated into a charming hotel.
The room was huge, with four distinct and independent areas: a spacious entrance hall with wardrobe, a large bathroom with bath, a bedroom full of light and a balcony overlooking the pool, the castle and the vast Alentejo plain.

The service was very friendly and efficient, including recommendations on places to visit in the village and surrounding area.

The outdoor pool is great to cool off from the intense heat of Alentejo.

Besides the good hotel restaurant, there is another local restaurant located two streets below called "Pateo Real": at this traditional restaurant, you can eat the real Alentejo food.

There are many beautiful towns and villages nearby this Hotel and also the ancient Royal Stud Farm of Alter where the famous Lusitanian horses are bred. So, this hotel is also excellent as a base to explore the many surrounding attractions.

I stayed here for the weekend on December 2015 and it was greate. The convent was renovated recently and the common areas are very pleasent. The rooms were confortable and large enought. The only thing not great were the bathrooms, they seemed to be olddated. Some of the details need fixing, it seemed that some of the latest maintainance have not been very sucessfull.
The staff was very helpfull and kind and the meals where very good (dinner and breakfast). I would come and stay here again.

Wonderful setting in a small Portuguese town. Amazing building and large rooms , full of character

Great staff

With such a high standard set sadly the restaurant was a bit disappointing though breakfast was ok

We were lucky to have the hotel almost to ourselves , the feeling of luxury might be tested if it was full

Together with my wife and 2 children, we spent 3 days here in June, 2013. We expected more, to be honest, as the old convent the hotel is inserted into offers a brilliant setup for a world class hotel. However, the place falls somewhere between the austerity of the old convent and the facilities of a modern hotel, thus failing them both.
The room we stayed in was a little bit decrepit, with a frightening old air conditioning unit. On the other hand, it was quite large and overall clean.
I never saw them cleaning the pool's surface with that net of theirs (we basically spent the whole day by the pool) nor was a net available close by to do it ourselves. It's a countryside and lots of bugs fall into the water, so cleaning it in the morning only is definitely not sufficient. The size of the pool is adequate to the size of the hotel, but only half of it was usable because of the myriad of bugs floating on the other half.
The breakfast was quite poor in the first morning, but we later learned that the reason was that they held a wedding there the night before (not sure what does one thing have to do with the other). It was very good in the following days, however.
To wrap it up, if they show up with a really good discount, give it a try. I wouldn't pay the full price for what they offer, however.
