My wife and I are nearer 80 that 70 and we have travelled all over the World in our lifetime. With all our experience of 5 star hotels and other accomodations we would easily rate the Convento as unique.
Some 45 years ago we travelled regularly to the Algarve with our young daugh

Stayed here during the heatwave and the place was everything that had been written in reviews. The room on the first floor was very spacious and shower room was likewise. There is a fantastic roof space which includes a swimming pool and a great terrace where you can take in th

Does the rooftop room with sea view have direct access to the communal terrace?
Both roof top rooms do. We stayed in these in September, having to change rooms as neither was available for the whole week. The more expensive one with the private terrace is slightly bigger. And the private terrace In between the room and communal terrace is great to have, though had no sun. See my review for photos :)

Is there any car parking available either at or near to the hotel? Many thanks
Are there taxis readily available here? Is Uber available? We are considering not renting a car for our stay.
The proprietors of Convento are very willing to call a taxi. The train station is less than a 10 minute walk. There is a taxi rank approx mid way between Convento and train station. You can take a train west to Faro or east to Travira. Visit the olive oil farm but this will be a taxi run !

How big is the pool on the roof terrace?
Very small, about 4meters by 2 meters I think. Refreshing for a dip when the sun is hot though.
