We stayed for two nights in July in a rooftop room which was peaceful, spacious and light. Everything about Convento is beautiful from the architecture to the relaxing rooftop pool to the amazing breakfasts. The hotel is perfectly located just back from the waterfront with a great selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk.

We recently enjoyed six nights at Convento and our stay couldn't have been better. After a full on week at a family wedding we booked Convento as a place where we could unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet, and Convento proved perfectly suited to this purpose. Upon entering Convento your voice automatically drops to a whisper as the place emanates an effortless calm. From removing your shoes at the entrance, to the beautiful courtyard with silent water feature, minimalist decor, cosy library corner, and beautiful rooftop terrace Convento offers a tranquillity more reminiscent of a mindfulness retreat than a hotel. The breakfast provided every morning was a highlight and consisted of an array of fresh fruits and local produce. Besides eating local foods, reading and swimming in the sun on the rooftop terrace, and taking a few trips out to the beaches to do the same there, we did little else during our stay. It's exactly how we wanted to spend the week and we can't wait to visit again.

A 4 night break for old friends in lovely, relaxed Olhao, could not have been spent in a more beautiful, enchanting, relaxed setting than Convento. Amazing rooms, astounding architecture, divine breakfasts, a wonderful, laid-back vibe & great hosts...this is a magical place. Xxx

A 3 day restful stay in the midst of a 6 week trip. Beautifully decorated large rooms. wonderfully quiet yet steps from waterfront with shops, market and restaurants. Excellent breakfast. Intimate and friendly. Convento is so good and Olhao so nice that we are considering a return trip just to visit longer.
A gem of a town and a masterpiece of a place to stay...the word "hotel" doesn't do Convento justice.
Like a journey to another world of another day.

My husband and I stayed for the May Bank Holiday weekend at Convento in one of the ground floor suites. The rooms are large, beautiful and quiet. Hosts are relaxed and extremely helpful. Do not miss the breakfasts, they are amazing. Everything about this hotel is really special, it's like the most fabulous home from home; with shoes off at the door and a well stocked honesty bar by the rooftop pool. We would have loved to have stayed longer and can't wait to return.
