Discreetly tucked down a little side road - with only a 10 on the door to identify its whereabouts, the Convento is the ideal boutique 'go to' hotel if you want to relax. Beautiful understated elegance, where Moorish Riad layout exudes privacy and encourages reflection. A sea of tranquillity. I’d like to say a huge thank you to one of the owners: Filipe Monteiro, who liaised with my nieces (in England) for my surprise birthday gift of flowers, fruit and bubbly - all arranged on a national bank holiday!! Don't know how he did it, but much appreciated. Thanks also to Ramona for making such wonderful breakfasts and Sylvia on hand at the hotel. Your guest service is faultless. If you want to sample the Algarve away from the golf ghettos, this is the place to visit. Thank for making our stay an enjoyable one.
