We stayed here for three nights in July, a family of four, two children aged 12 and 7. We loved it from the moment we walked across the courtyard. The building is ancient but very well maintained, extremely clean and full of beautiful old artifacts. We stayed in a family suite which was two Spacious rooms joined by an interconnecting hallway. Off the hallway were two bathrooms, both with baths, showers and copious amounts of hot water. The air con was very efficient (very necessary as it was 100degrees outside) and the windows were shutters with heavy wooden shutters so we slept in very late every morning. The breakfast was served until 10.30 and was of standard Spanish fare; bread, cheese, ham, yoghurts, home made cakes and biscuits, cereal, bacon, sausages, eggs etc. The coffee was made to order and excellent. We lunched by the pool twice (gazpacho, mozzarella salad, jamon) and it was wonderful. On our second day the waitress was acting as cook and made us a soft chocolate fondant pudding for dessert....she told us it would take 30minutes and it arrived steaming hot out of the oven. Amazing!The hotel is situated in a very pretty medieval town which feels very remote but has all the facilities you could want. The restaurant at El Convent was closed on the two nights we were there so we dined in the town at the two little tapas bars which are a short walk from the hotel. All the locals came out to drink and chat as the night progressed and we loved watching the locals enjoying life in their beautiful community. The village has beautiful walks around it and we walked up to the church and old fortress to watch the sun set each night. This village is in a stunning location. The drive from Barcelona through the mountains was spectacular, the village was beautiful and unspoiled and the hotel was magical from beginning to end. We would not hesitate to travel from Australia to Spain again purely for the privilege of staying at El Convent.
