Convento is more than a small boutique hotel. It is indeed, a concept: nine light, white, airy bedrooms, a townhouse, a family home, a place to be yourself. And a lot, a lot more. Enjoy the roof terrace and gaze over the sea and the white roofs of Olhão. And the plunge pool too – perfect to refresh on hot summer days.
There are also two miradouros - the ideal place to catch the soft sea breeze, a hidden courtyard and a smiling fountain under the high southern sky. Rest on a whitewashed bench while you appreciate a pattern of hand-made tiles in washed indigo. Pick a good book and choose your favourite spot to read, chat, and think.
Convento is a home, where you’re welcome to make yourself at home. The rooms are located around a central patio on the ground and first floors or on the roof terrace of an old restored building with a traditional winding staircase.
Each of them has a double bed (160x200cm) or two twin beds (on request), a seating area, a private bathroom with shower, and is equipped with a silent ceiling fan (except the terrace rooms) and floor heating. There are no TV's or mp3 docking stations, but there is Wi-Fi.
Take a walk around the charming fishing town of Olhão, visit the beautiful Rio Formosa National park and take a dip in its pristine sweet waters or simply enjoy the soothing peace and tranquility you can feel here. Undoubtedly a great choice if you visit the Eastern part of Algarve.
Beautiful hotel. We particularly enjoyed the delicious homemade breakfasts and peaceful roof terrace.
There were some disturbances from building works outside our ground floor room but apart from that it was a lovely stay.

It was fairly difficult to locate ... due to a 3-day music festival on Olhao's harbor front and main thoroughfare, it was necessary that we parked our auto 3-4 blocks away from the hotel ... a bit of an inconvenience, but manageable ... we were met by the owner, Phillipe, and given a tour of the facilities ... charming and wonderful man ... rooms are neat and comfortable ... open windows for ventilation with an overhead fan ... very comfortable with breeze, even in August ... however, the amplified music emanating from the festival less than a block from the hotel, lasted until 1:30am ... thankfully, there was enough activity for us during the three days spent in the Algarve that sleeping was not a problem ... the breakfast each day was marvelous and conversation with the other guest was always worthwhile ... especially enjoyed the sunset from the rooftop lounge ... fantastic place!
Charming and relaxing

We stayed for three nights with our grown- up sons. Warm welcome, beautiful harmonious building, tranquility, large rooms, great breakfast and easy and generous help yourself facilities and very personal spirit.
Enjoyed the authentic unspoiled atmosphere in Olhao.
Persönlich und idyllisch

Diese Unterkunft ist ein wirklicher "Secret-Place".
Wir fühlten uns bereits ab der abgeschlossenen Buchung sehr willkommen. Vor Antritt unseres Aufenthalts kontaktierten uns die Gastgeber und versuchten den Aufenthalt unseren persönlichen Wünschen anzupassen.
Die Unterkunft sowie die Betreuung sind schwer zu beschreiben. Mein Rat: Selbst erleben und in vollen Zügen genießen. Wir tauchten Dank der herzlichen Gastgeber in eine idyllische Behausung ein, in welcher wir uns sehr wohlfühlten.
- Wir kommen gerne wieder!

'for people who find luxury in the simple things'... is what they say on the website and I couldn't agree more.
I just kept finding new places to sit and read and feel like I was in paradise. Everything from the contrasting crystal chandeliers to the fresh fruit at breakfast and homemade tea and cake available all day was perfect. Luis really has an attention to detail.
Will definitely be back!
