      Amazing building.

      Just an amazing historic building. Atmospheric and delightful. Lovely seating areas with the possibility of a real wood burning hearth. We loved every minute of it and were genuinely sad to leave.

      A truly unique experience

      A former royal and aristocratic convent adjacent to the Ducal palace which was the home of many Portuguese kings, the Pousada Convento de Vila Vicosa is a destination in itself. Its wide variety of unique rooms that have been carefully renovated and adapted for hotel use stand out among the many dozens of castles, chateaux, monasteries and convents in which my wife and I have stayed over the past four decades. Although due to the complexity of its layout, it is easy to get lost and some of its rooms are multi leveled and might be unsuitable for some, we have always found the staff extremely helpful and willing to do their best to tailor guests’ rooms to their needs and interests to provide a truly memorable experience.

    • 6.0.Good

      Great location, nice staff but in need of an update at least in the room where we stayed. Badly designed bathroom, floor needs attention and after a cut in the water supply for a few hours the over head shower did not work properly.

      Problems and pluses of a Pousada

      When arriving, the reception was staffed by a harried employee who had to welcome guests, answer the phone, and bring guests to their room. The pousada has large grounds and finding all the facilities is challenging. That said, it is a historic building with fascinating features. The breakfast is a large spread with a variety if coldcuts, drinks, breads, and scrambled eggs. The pool area is pleasant but the water is not heated and the wading pool visited by wasps. The room did not have a charging plug next to the bed for the cell phone and the wooden floors creaked but the ample space and balcony of the Superior Room was nice for spreading out to relax after a day of exploring the surrounding areas. In other words, there were both advantages and disadvantages of staying here.
