My parents, and my husband and I, booked 2 rooms in this historic pousada and really enjoyed the property. I wish we could have stayed longer than 1 night. We really loved the breakfast area in the vaulted and arches hallway. And the pool area was beautiful, even if the pool was rather cold (just like every other pool we encountered in Portugal). The employees were friendly and helpful as well.
Above all I liked the historic feel of the place, and it’s very convenient location in the city center immediately next to the Roman temple ruins.
I only gave the property 4 stars because the rooms are a little worn out and in need of refreshing. I understand that the rooms will be small because this was a convent, and I expected the small size, but that does not mean the property can’t invest in newer linens or mattresses. I found the room to be less comfortable than I was hoping for. And although pools are not typically heated in Portugal, I think the property should consider it so guests will actually enjoy getting in the water.
All in all, a fine choice in Évora city center. We would stay there again if we traveled to Évora once again.
